Why to stay in the loud and suffocating centre with tourist prices

 for tourist made attractions

if you can in the silent and green?

If you want in 18 min. you are there or at the Airport.

Be curious, look behind!

If you want to book only one night it is also possible, pls. drop me a mail.



And if you love sweets here close by you can try the best pastry shop of the country, which win every year the country cake competition!

And if you think you are far away from the centre you are not! In 18 min. you are in centre of Budapest, next to the Budapest Parliament ( which is a must in my opinion! and the laid back Margaret island for a cycling tour and the most photographed St. Steven Dom)  for less then a Euro and it’s a great experience to try the Hungarian railways still in Budapest (just like in London, Amsterdam or Berlin)!


I speak English, German, Italian and Russian and having travelled extensively myself and stayed in different hostels I have a good idea of what the needs of budget travellers are. As a native Budapest citizen I am also in a good position to advice you about places to visit both in and out of the guide books.


This is not a party hostel in Budapest but is set up for people who enjoy travelling and experiencing new places and cultures. There is no age limit, I only ask that you to show respect to other guests regardless of gender, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity or nationality.


After booking pls. always contact the hostel about your arrival to Budapest.

Not taking any guests during the night time, which means after 22.00 (10.p.m.)!

Prices from 3000,-Ft, pls. check at “book now”!
