100 metres from 'Keleti' railway station, 5 minutes walk from 'Arena Plaza' -the biggest shopping center in Hungary- and 10 minutes walk to Blaha Lujza ter (downtown area), this nice and small hostel is situated on the 3rd floor of a 19th century newly renovated residential building, with a 24-hours open supermarket on the ground floor.

Free and safe parking place for cars nearby (500 metres away). We have also parking place for bicycles.

The hostel is in a large apartment and offers rooms with double bed, twin beds, triples, quads and dorms with 6 and 7 beds, a well furnished kitchen for self-catering, Laundry facilities, Free Wi-Fi Internet connection in all the rooms, Satellite TV and a common room with one free to use computer, unlimited free use of coffee, tea, chocolate, plus Indian spices and cooking oil -in case you want to cook. It is a very quiet and relaxing hostel with a friendly, open minded and helpful English, Italian and Spanish speaking staff. The hostel welcomes everyone -with no discrimination for sexual orientation, race, nationality, etc.


There are individual lockers, a flexible check-out time and a not curfew policy. We have all the basic amenities required to enjoy a decent and relaxed stay far from home.
