The Golden Eagle Hostel
Nestled in an apartment at the 4th floor of a historical building which was the home of late Count Lajos Karoly and his wife Countess Katalina Andrassy. Count Karoly gave to the building the name 'Arany Sas Udvar' or 'The Golden Eagle Yard', placing a golden eagle on the top-front of the building -being the eagle a symbol of the Austro-Hungarian empire.
After the communist took the power in Hungary, the building was confiscated by the new regimen and given to the proletariat to live in. It was then divided in many small apartments. Besides its great location and amazing history, our small hostel has a homey atmosphere. It is like arriving to a friend's home.
We are located in downtown, near to the National Museum, the splendid Central Market and the Danube river with Gellert and Rudas Thermal Baths.
The area is well known for its pubs, cafes, restaurants (one block away from Rday utca -with 50 restaurants with tables lined along the street) and many other places of entertainment as well. The environment is safe and pleasant.
We have bright, spacious and clean mixed dorms and a private double bed room. The hostel has free Wi-Fi Internet connection in all the rooms, use of linen is included in the price, free self-serving coffee and tea, a kitchen for self-catering.
1) Please make as accurate as possible your arrival time, as we do not have 24-hour reception desk. If you are delayed or arrive earlier, it is useful to inform us about the change in the arrival time.
2) The hostel is in a residential building, for which it is important to keep quiet specially late at night (after 10 pm).
