  1. Best Sauna

    “Being a regular guest, I could only recommend this venue for either chill out in the lovely saunas (many to choose from) or for some hot actions (private cabins, gloryholes, dark steam). The friendly staff, the special atmosphere and the visitors from all ages and shapes will guarantee that you will not regret your visit. At the top of it is the cheap entrance fee!

    Magnum features many themed events:
    – sauna séances on Thursdays (at 17, 18 and 19 pm, with free tea and a fruit plate in between the events to facilitate the detoxification of your body)
    – Pizza parties
    – Dark and Naked parties every Friday and Sunday evening

    These events also worth giving a try, my presonal favourite is the sauna séance.

    Ps: if you are into younger guys then best to go at weekends before or after party times.”

  3. Jó hely a Magnum

    “A Magnum maximálisan elnyerte tetszésemet. Az idén 15-ik születésnapját ünneplő szauna elhelyezkedése kitűnő, alapterülete nagy, a hely tiszta, a személyzet kifejezetten barátságos, szolgálatkész, szorgalmas. Külön tetszik, hogy a felújítások alkalmával az emeleti részre kerültek a szaunák, így jobban elkülönül a relaxálás az egyéb más “tevékenységtől”. A korosztályos kedvezményes napoknál is mindenkire gondoltak, az árak elfogadhatóak. Külön öröm sokunknak, hog idén elkészült a Jakuzzi is, szóval csak dícsérni tudom a helyet. Aki még nem járt ott, az mindenképp pótolja ezen hiányosságát, és látogasson el a Magnumba! Péter”

  4. Great time

    “I visited this sauna while I was in Budapest. First of all I was really pleasantly surprised by the prices. Compared to London it was really cheap. Sauna was nice and clean, the rooms can be locked and you don’t even have to pay extra to use them. Every room had paper towels and some of them even have porn movies running.
    The crowd was a good mix from 20-somethings to 50 somethings.
    I absolutely enjoyed the upper level with the bio sauna and the dip pool. Really well done, and quite a unique experience. I haven’t seen many gay saunas which are actually taking pride in having a great selection of sauna rooms. This place does.
    The jacuzzi was fun and quite busy, always full. I actually had to wait for my turn, but it was worth it.
    Steam room was a bit too dark for my taste.
    I didn’t know the facility also had a gym, otherwise I’d have bought my gym gear. Took a look around and one guy was working out naked. It was an interesting sight.
    I’ll definitely visit again, if I’m in the city.”

  6. Tapasztalat

    “Szerdán voltam! Nagyon jól éreztem magam, és csak azért utaztam fel Nyíregyházáról, hogy részese lehessek ennek az élménynek. Csodás a társaság. Én 58 éves vagyok, de voltak olyanok, akik idősebbek, és voltak fiatalabbak is. Még a 20-as korosztályból is voltak páran. Meghitt, intim hely, ahol én mindig megtalálom az igényeimnek megfelelő partnert is. Az igényeim írhatom azt, hogy nem kicsik, és itt az emberi tulajdonságokra gondolok elsősorban!”

  7. In the top ten in Europe!

    “I was talking to some people from the United States, and they were very happy in Budapest and they loved the Magnum Sauna, Congrat guys, now the Magnum is in the top ten gay saunas in Europe, nothing to shame, ok some cold drinking water free of charge it would be very handy at the desk or around the Jacuzzy.”

  8. A kettöböl az egyik.

    “Két szauna van Pesten, az egyik ez. Nem nagy szám, szokásos emberek, változó korok, változó kinézetek. Mindenki megtalálja a maga választását, a felsö szaunaszint és a jakuzzi jelentösen feldobták. Ha azt hiszed föleg tizen-huszon-harmincévesek járnak akkor tévedsz, ide kanosak járnak.”

  9. Legjobb szauna Budapesten

    “Sokszor voltam, és mindig barátságosak volt a személyzet, szinte családias a hangulat. Sokan régi ismerősként üdvözlik egymást, nagy beszélgetések, és még nagyobb ölelkezések színhelye ez az igazán remek, nívós, és kulturált hely. Csak ajánlani tudom mindenkinek!”

  10. Typical Sauna

    “Nothing special, typical sauna, very dark to tell who is who, 20 or so guys there, cruising around but few actions. I always think most attractive and younger guys use online apps and would not bother sauna any more. So, customers are truly older and out of shape. I went on a naked Friday, staff ask everyone to lose their tower, not sure it aroused me or dis-aroused me. Guess owner is trying hard to attract customers, unfortunately sauna seems to be doomed, everywhere.”

    • Far from doomed

      “Dear Peter,

      thanks for your candid review. Yes, we have our share of older out of shape guests but we also have our share of in shape younger guys. Our business is doing well and although the demise of the bathhouse as a business model has been heralded many times, truth is that most bathhouses around the world are still operating and new big ones are being opened (Boiler Berlin or Rőmer sauna Vienna). Hooking up with applications has it s positive and negatives, just as hooking up in a sauna does.

      Greetings

      János”

  11. Better-than-expected.

    “Online sex apps are undercutting bath houses in most cities, so I don’t expect much when I visit one lately. Luckily this one was just fine given that Budapest isn’t Berlin. Larger than I expected, better maintained than most and reasonably priced. Staff was friendly. Like most saunas in Europe, you do not have the option to rent your own room but you can use one that is not occupied and there were plenty available here – even one with a sling. Average age of the patrons was around 40 which is typical with most bath houses these days. Not terribly busy but enough guys to find some fun. A local told me to arrive Friday at 10pm.”

    • One more on apps

      “Dear P

      Thanks for your nice review. As I answered previously, I don’t think that apps are killing gay saunas. In fact, if what you want is to have som nsa time, then you”re probably better off in a sauna instead of spending countless hours trying to organise something on the net.

  12. Visit may 16

    “Visited the sauna on a Wednesday, I was led to believe Wednesday would be a busy day but this was not the case.
    Even though there a spray bottles and wipes to clean the cabins, the cabins do still smell.
    Only 3 people under the age of 60, the over 60s were very pushy and smelly
    Would not go here again.”

    • Wednesday at Magnum

      “Dear Clive

      Sorry that you did not enjoy yourself at our sauna.

      Yes, Wednesday in our place does have an older crowd as the 50% get a discount on that day. The other days are more mixed.

  13. Only lockers available

    “Website does not clearly describe the facility. As a traveler it would be nice to have accurate info. Most saunas in the world have private cabins to rent. This one only has lockers. The cabins mentioned are mixed use for sx. Disappointing for a facility in a large city.”

    • Lockers vs rooms

      “Dear Travis

      I don’t like to argue with someone that write an inteligent review, but truth is, most saunas in europe use the locker and free cabins for all system. But as this has allready been commented on, I will add some information on our website regarding this.

      Greetings

    “Im an italian guy (35 year old). I went to the Magnum Sauna on this summer. I spend time in Budapest for a long weekend. I had really relax feeling on Thursday afternoon and fun on Friday night on dark naked party. As in the other saunas after opening time was quiet on the weekend but after 4-5 pm more and more crowded and completely mixed age in. The place was quiet clean and thanks for the kinda staff to help me any information about gay life in the city. Grazie”
