I visited Budapest and went to this sauna. The staff were friendly and the place is big and clean. There are many play areas & cabins, and the different saunas upstairs are great. It is definitely one of the best gay saunas I have been to.I went on a Wednesday afternoon and it was quite busy but mainly older guys 60's/70's, not my type but I enjoyed the facilities and everyone was friendly. After 5/6pm the place filled up with many guys of all ages and I had alot fun with some cute & friendly guys.

I think everything was great but they charged me for 4 beer money but I drank just 3 beer because I’m tourist.Additionally entry prices is not the same on website. It’s more expensive.As an ambience I like sauna but as I said workers fix themselves.

I’ve had a fantastic time there! The staff is very welcoming and helpful. Better than some saunas in Paris or Barcelona. I’ll come back for sure when I’m back in Budapest.

Clean and neat. Wish the dry sauna was downstairs. The air is quite chill. I went on Saturday. It is bear night every Sat I guess. I advise you not to come on Sat if you are not into that.

Overall a great place to be at. Every day with different theme.Friday is my favourite with the dark party with every type of guys for your taste. Its not your regular sauna for sex, but can meet socialize. Steam, huge jacuzzi, different saunas and a place to mingle and it was clean. Staff was very friendly.

I visited on new year weekend not the 31st party but Friday. It’s full packed.I was ******so much. Seriously. I have no idea who are the husbands that night. Now I’m full pregnant. I may need a million of DNA tests to find the fathers.And I’m a non-EU visitor. So highly recommend my bottom visiting sisters to come. The price is yes similar to Berlin. But u can get a return ticket for the day if u pay the visiting price. It’s worth it. U’ll get what you wanted deep inside u, literally. 🤭🤭🤭

This sauna could be a good place if not only old people go there, there are really no young or youthful guys here, only old and fat guys, you won't see nice people here. The prices are unfair, it is not nice that tourists have to pay double the price just because someone speaks English. Think about whether you definitely want to visit this sauna!

I had the opportunity to visit the sauna on Friday evening. There were lots of people of all ages. The atmosphere was great! The place is clean and big, the staff was normal - guys, you don't have to be friends after your first visit.I will definitely go there!

This sauna is a tourist trap! Attention tourists! The membership system is a scam! If you speak Hungarian, you are a member. If you speak English, you are not a member. The entrance ticket price for Hungarian adults is HUF 3,300-4,400 (8,6-11,5 euro), depending on the day. If you are a tourist, the price of your entrance ticket is HUF 8,500 (22 euros) every day. So the ticket price is more than double just because you are a tourist. In reality, there is no membership system, this is how this business tries to get extra profit. You don't have to pay the entrance ticket when you enter, but when you leave. I advise everyone not to pay the double price, it's always an unpleasant situation for the staff.Anyone reading this review will surely not understand why. The reason for my rating is not malice! I'm just a banned person who didn't want to have fun with the sauna owner. This is ridiculous. Think about whether you want to support such a business!

Hey! It’s a wondering gay sauna! Gay-friendly staff 🌈I was at Dark and Naked Friday. It was a really exciting adventure 😀The staff takes care of you. I’ve got a bath slippers, a towel and a condom( because it was Dark and Naked Friday👀)It was my first visit at gay sauna 😊If you look for an excitement, meeting new people, this place is for you 🙂😀I know it’s just my subjective opinion and I was the first time at the gay sauna, but people were kind to me :-)I’m looking forward to the next my visit ☺️😀P.S. the really good discount opportunity for young guys until 29 years, don’t miss your chance 😉

This place is large and has all the facilities. I was there on a Sunday afternoon. Good crowd, mix of young and older. However, unless you're Hungarian, don't expect anything from these guys. I'm a friendly person and I said hello to about 20 guys and only 1 said hello back (he wasn't Hungarian). I talked to an Asian guy and that was it. These guys walk around like they're God's gift, and they look miserable doing it. It's a shame because it could have been a lot of fun.

A big place. A nice place to have fun. It is much cleaner than Parisian saunas. The Friday night event was very interesting, packed and well organized. There seemed to be of locals. I would go back.

First i was impressed by how big the premises were. On the downside was the full price 8700 plus that for a Saturday night there were relatively few men, mostly >40 50...Overall not bad but neither was i impressed

Had a great experience at Magnum sauna towards the end of September. The man at front desk was super nice & friendly, the amenities all clean & great jacuzzi & saunas & a mixed pleasant crowd. The only downside was a seemingly grumpy masseur. Whilst the overall massage was quite good, he could have shown a bit more warmth & friendliness to add to the positivity of the experience.

It's not bad, but somehow it's not charming enough! It's a bit chaotic. I don't understand why they have to block the exit to the jacuzzi during the nude night?!. Overall it is not small place and has all needed facilities. It's overcrowded on the weekend.

This is one the best gay sauna clubs I have ever visited through Europe. I had the chance to see naked party night. It was awesome. Guys inside were very hot and naughty 😈 I spent at least 7 hours leaving at 2am in the morning 😉

It looks like a nice place, but only at first glance! If you are a tourist, you have to pay a double entry price because you do not have a membership card. Not HUF 4,400, but HUF 8,500. That's 22 euros. The sauna entrance fee is the same in any European capital. But there is no membership card, they decide who is a member and who is not. The staff only tried to explain unpleasantly, the receptionist did not speak English, the cleaner spoke English. It was a fun experience! The earlier review from a guy that this sauna is a tourist trap is true! The staff is rude, they barely understand English, the sauna guests are 50-60-70 years old, the sauna looks clean, the jacuzzi water has an unpleasant smell, the steam sauna also has an unpleasant smell. I do not recommend this place to anyone! But if you like very old guys and you don't care about being damaged with money, this sauna might be the right place for you!

The facilities are very nice and clean. The people who said that the place is dirty are obnoxious lier - probably have some issues with themselves, got no attention and left disappointed. I came here on Saturday night mainly for the facilities but also would not mind a small action, unfortunately did not find any. I was here 7,5 hrs on Saturday night. Being in my early 30s I lowered the average age to 60 I’d say. During the whole evening there was 1 person below 30 and maybe another 3-4 people in their 30s. Great majority was 60+ and I am talking like 80% of guests. Also, what other reviews say: very local which is great, because the locals are the motor for the business. But it does create certain aura. Hungarians are not as open as Latinos or Spaniards so you would not find people talking with each other. It’s mostly local group.So if you are searching for nice, clean spa. Come here! It’s great.If you would like to have some action along way, unless you prefer older crowd you might not find what you are looking for.

Went on a Tuesday night so wasn’t too busy (but that was to be expected). Staff clearly couldn’t be bothered to stay open and decided to start closing at just past 11pm. TV etc was turned off way before and lights were turned on at 11:20 and everybody was kicked out. I’ve been to saunas all over the world and this was hands down the worst. Waste of money - avoid, avoid, avoid.

Come here and Support the Community. I come here on Wednesday. Drink two Beers here. Stuff was so nice. The have one Big Yakuzi. And a Lot of Dark Places. So come here. Kiss

Very unfriendly staff, 69 sauna is so much more welcoming. The people in the sauna were lovely but the staff are really unpleasant. I've been to many saunas around the world and have never experienced such hostile staff. I would really recommend 69 sauna, but not this one. Me and my partner both thought the same. Seriously guys, your ego is unfortunate you're so awful. Expensive drinks and very disappointing attitude. I'd avoid just because of the repugnant staff 0 points from us. A real shame.

I can attest as an English speaking person that their membership system indeed does work and it’s not a scam. It’s clearly outlined on the website and you have to physically ask for the card on your first visit. Once you have your third visit, you are automatically a member. I didn’t ask for the card on the first but that’s my mistake. System is merely meant to reward locals or frequent visitors. If you’re there for one weekend, no you won’t become a member, but I don’t know any other bathhouse in the world that gives a free membership and half price after your third visit. Also on the website if it’s your first time, they’ll actually give you free entry. The review below is completely in error which describes the membership system as a scam. I love this sauna, Friday nights are amazing. It’s huge multi leveled, very clean and on my second visit, someone took the time to completely show me around the club, because it is a bit of a maze which I like. Definite must see in Budapest

According to Google Maps, the world's best gay sauna. Well, l haven't been to many, but of those I've visited it is indeed the best one.Compared to average gay saunas, the patrons are a lot more talkative and interested in getting to know each other. They come from all over the globe and vary a lot in age as well. Most aren't Hungarian.It's also very clean, and the steam rooms are of high quality.Spanning across 2 floors, it's also quite spacious.Lots of young, hot guys at the Friday night naked event, as others have noticed.The staff are friendly.

Have been there on a Sunday evening. Huge place, a lot of playrooms, good saunas, friendly staff. I had some fun, but stayed only about 2 hours, I felt that some locals (not all) don't tolerate foreigners. They just have to remember that Budapest is a very touristic city or maybe I haven't been lucky being there that day, what I hope so.

The vacation is over, what a shame, my last day at Magnum Sauna after a three-week's time to say goodbye and say thank you to all the staffThe place is very clean in all areas, it is true that the place is a bit small compared to saunas throughout Europe, but for me it is my favorite place with a very pleasant atmosphere.I liked Wednesdays. It is highly recommended to visit the place. Thanks again to all the staff, everyone is kind.I give the place 5 stars.

Great huge sauna. Must try the Friday night dark & naked event. Very well organized and clean. It’s so huge that you could get a bit lost on the 1st visit. Friday night after 10pm has really lots of hot guys and mix crowd. Must go for some fun in Budapest. Bring your own lube as it’s not provided in the cabins.

Fantastic, one of the best gay saunas I've been to, anywhere in the world. Very clean space, lots of lit and lots of dark areas. Steam sauna area is huge. The staff is friendly and professional. I paid for an hour long massage and it was one of the best I've ever had, and great value! It was sexy but not sexual, exactly what I wanted! The guys visiting the bathhouse were diverse, hot, and not pretentious; people were actually having fun not just walking around staring at each other. This place will be on my must-visit list every time I'm in Budapest. Probably going back tonight!

The entrance fees are unfair. It costs less than half the entrance price for locals. I met a Hungarian guy. He had to pay HUF 4,000. I had to pay HUF 8,500. The staff justifies this with the club membership system. The club membership system works in such a way that if you are Hungarian, you are a club member. But if you are a tourist and speak English, you are not a club member. I have no problem paying this amount. The problem is that this is immoral money-making. I do not recommend this place!

The owner / at the reception is a very sweet and a humble person assisting you and he is very welcoming. I went on a Friday which also has naked parties where you are without your towel. Best sauna, best dark rooms, best experience of mix crowd and it’s a delight.

The owner is the most gracious gentleman I've met since I came to Budapest. The staff are polite and took the time to tell me how things worked since it's my first time. Thank you for a memorable night.Patrons are respectable and there are ppl from everywhere and every age group and body type :)Lots of rooms and different Saunas so you won't get bored.10/10 ... If your looking for a fun time and a hospitable atmosphere this is the place.I'll be coming back soon.

Firstly, I would like to thank the good-looking owner, János for his warm hospitality and kindness to ease my anxiety (and shyness ☺️). Thank you for taking the time to show me around the place and sharing some practical tips (and the drinks, of course).The sauna is exceptional. The crews are great, friendly, and very helpful (shout-out to Gabriel!). The crowd was great and friendly as well. With regards to the facility, a clean towel, sandals, and a locker key are provided at the counter. The sauna is modern and has a beautiful interior, well-equipped, clean, and well-maintained. It has a nice sizeable jacuzzi, steam room, relaxing areas, and a well-thought labyrinth (and exciting areas) so that we don't get bored spending hours inside the premise. There are different types of dry saunas on the second floor and a number of seating areas at every corner of the premise.For a first-timer, I felt comfortable and enjoyed my time there. Well done and highly recommended. I'll be back, definitely!😉

We went there on Tuesday and Thursday close to Christmas time.Price is fair for both entrance and beer, environment is good, clean. Staff are nice and helpful. If you are curious, and like sauna, this is right place.
21:39 20 Dec 22
I liked it so much !The 4* only because such a diverse age , and I cannot tolerate when somebody touch me without my approval, so not respectful … but of course it’s not the place fault just stup* ppl and old ones there mostly

The sauna has a lot of facilities which will make the average visitor more than happy. For us, this was a first (visiting Magnum). We got cold feet a couple of minutes after we undressed because some of the other men were a bit overwhelming. The staff can not be responsible for the behaviour of its clients. However, since we did not use the facilities and were only in for 15 minutes (half of this time was undressing and getting dressed again), we did not expect to pay the full price. We paid nonetheless, but we think that the staff missed here an opportunity to show some customer care and understanding. Especially since it was the same person at the front desk who welcomed us.

Mixed crowd, and I had a lot of fun every time I went there. Very friendly staff, looking after the premises all the time, thus it is very clean and tidy. Looking forward to visiting again
19:15 21 Sep 22
The high price reflects that it's not purely hook up place but also is a spa with very hot Finnish sauna, bio/aroma sauna, salt room, and infrared room. They have rain shower and cold basket feature I never seen before (been in bath houses all over Europe and Americas). Music is not too loud and not obnoxious, chill out kind of style. Patrons are friendly and respectful.

I do not know about the people who complained and what they expect from an establishment like this, but it’s perfectly okay.

If you are a tourist and you don't speak any Hungarian they will charge you double (around 20$) because you "don't have a membership card". It is nothing unheard of. Except, fun fact: the membership card doesn't even exist. They will decide who is a "member" and who isn't. But they will give foreigners a card with a stamp. If you get three stamps you can enter a fourth time for free. Maybe you really like old and fat guys and want to come back every day during your trip to Budapest, who knows.

The sauna itself is good, the labyrinth is great, however, the servise and atmosphere not so great. The staff tried to charge us double the price. When we asked why they lowered the price without questioning, but still adding few thousands extra. When we asked why they corrected it - a warning to all tourists, be careful. They always try this with tourists. Regarding the atmosphere - very cheap and tacky design, with sport channels playing in the TV. The avarage age is 40+ ... but on a good note, the sauna is clean and the whole area is massive.

What can you expect from gay sauna?To be clean, to meet nice people, to relax and/or have fun.I believe this sauna fulfills all of above.Price is maybe a bit high but you get towel, clean flip-flops and unlimited access to all saunas, jacuzzi, labyrinths and relax zones.I think I'll visit this place again.

Might be the biggest yee I've been to in budapest! The venue consists of two floors. sauna, steam room, jacuzzi it has everything (of course I can add that they are a little small). other than that, the bar is very large and fun. The employees there are very friendly and helpful people. The average age of the customers is not always the same, I can say that there are people of almost all ages. I also liked the dark rooms. I highly recommend you go!

I have to say that this place I is AWESOME! They had everything you would expect from a men's sauna and more. Steam and dry saunas, a cold bath , SALT room, infrared room, nice sized hot tub, a lounge foe drinks and a massage therapist on site.The guy at the reception was really nice... men of all types, ages and interests were there... just a SUPER fun time. I will definitely be back when I return next week! I highly recommend this place if you're ever in Budapest.

I had a great sauna in here. The place is quite clean and tidy. The receptionist is very polite and friendly. I liked the wet sauna on the first floor. Almost at the end, I luckily found that there is dry sauna on the second floor. In summary, it is a fantastic place that is highly recommended for boys/men. Will go back again at the end of this trip.
