We offer rooms with double bed, twin beds, three and four beds. There is a furnished kitchen -which includes cooking oil, Indian spices, etc.- plus individual lockers, laundry facilities and wi-fi in all the rooms. We have the basic amenities necessary for a simple and decent stay away from home. Obviously, we are not a party hostel and quietness will be highly appreciated late at night. We have a flexible check-out time, which means our guests can use the hostel facilities till they leave, but need to vacate the rooms/beds at 11.00 to prepare them for the new arrivals. Check-in after 13:00

We have the advantage to be next to 'Keleti' railway/metro station, from where most trains leave to other countries and inside Hungary, a few minutes walk to 'Arena Plaza' shopping center and Blaha Lujza ter. We are also near Széchenyi thermal baths (Széchenyi Fürdő) and Hero's Square. Our small but cozy hostel is on the 3rd floor of a 19th century residential building in the 7th district.There is nearby a free parking place for cars (800 meters away).

Yoga Happy Hostel intends to bring -free of charge- the ancient Yoga techniques to those travelers curious about it or interested to find a deeper meaning of life. Our hostel offers the possibility to explore the Yoga ancient practices that can lead us to an enriching experience of a happier and healthier life. Our guests will have free access to the classes and lectures at our Yoga Studio -not far from the hostel. Yoga is not a religion and does not promote any religion, nor it is a mere practice of some physical exercises and body postures. Happiness and mental peace are everybody's common goals of life -there is in every human being the desire to experience endless happiness and limitless mental peace. Unfortunately, in a materialistic society such as ours and due to a state of ignorance, most people strive to experience happiness using wrong channels and means, which can led to experience a sort of temporary and artificial happiness, in many cases with adverse effects, while Yoga has proven for thousands of years to be an effective means to achieve an state of limitless peace and happiness. All what is needed is a competent teacher and practice. We can provide the first and encourage our guests the second.

1) The payment is in cash at arrival in euros or its equivalent in Hungarian currency buying rate.
