*********************************************
ROOM DESCRIPTIONS:

Our main residence, like almost all the hostels in Budapest, is inside a quiet residential building; we're not a hotel. On the 2nd floor we have dorm rooms with shared kitchen and common-room, on 1st floor 4 tidy, private rooms with shared facilities, and a fully equipped kitchen for you to use. It's small enough to have you privacy if you wish and big enough where you are not left waiting for the bathroom also won't be disturbed if you want to sleep late. If it feels like a home, that's because we try to make it that way.

Our ensuites are PRIVATE, private apartments that is. Ensuites are fully equipped apartments which are all still centrally located but off-site, within quick walking distance of the hostel if you need to stop by for internet or questions. Please note that if you book more than one ensuite they are not together but still not far apart either.

********************************************

If you must take a taxi from train station BEWARE of being taken for a ride. They will get you here but you will be greatly overcharged. Pay less than 10euro!!!

Do not ride public transport without a ticket, which needs to be punched before riding.

Please be careful of ticket sellers who may try and short change you.

From Keleti train station:
Please take the metro (5am-11:15pm) to Arany Janos metro station which is one stop north of where the metro lines intersect -- so switch to the blue line from the red there.

Ride to Arany Jnos utca (final stop). Find the building with a large STIEBEL-ELTRON sign, we are in this building entering from Bank utca, first door #7, Please ring #11. We are on the 1st floor.


If you care to make your way here on your own we are located by the Arany Janos Metro stop, which is one stop south of Nyugati station, or one stop north of Deak ter on the blue line.

For those guests who would come from the airport we can offer a cheap transfer.

Please contact us by e-mail the week of arrival to arrange pick-up.

If you don't need this service, please e-mail us and we will give you proper, well detailed directions to our hostel.

Thank you!


Please note we need to know when you will arrive to ensure someone is here to greet you when you arrive therefore please confirm your arrival by phone or email to arrange your check-in!

Once again, to students I say, please advise us of when you will arrive, just a quick email will suffice. Thanks in advance
