This property was mis sold to me under the pretence of being part of a party goers accommodation which was a lot of fun as well as a good clean place to stay with a beach nearby. Well the hostel was a derelict house, really dirty there was rubbish everywhere. I had to go and find a B&B nearby to take a shower and have a good sleep for the second night. This is unacceptable.

Shower dirty, no lockers/keys etc...However this is such a cool place to stay. Although there is little to do in the area (lake is pretty/there was a huge market/funfair/music when we stayed which was cool) you'll have so much fun with people in the hostel. We went drink bowling with big crowd - lots of fun. MOST IMPORTANT is the building itself - see it to believe it - an 'abandoned posh hotel' - place is a fun free for all - go explore attics, corridors, stairs- SCARY but so MEMORABLE.

This was a funny, unique and memorable stay, freaky caste with a lot of rooms needed to be explored! Lot of adventure and open people. Enjoyed very much. Highly reccomended but only for youngsters! :)

Cool place & cool people! Maybe we were just really lucky but in addition to great staff every single person who we met at the hostel was awesome. The wine festival was going on so tons of hungarians were around for that as well and the atmosphere in the whole village was very laid back and fun. The hostel building is very cool but a bit run down so don't expect a polished look from the interior either. Beds were comfy, bathroom and sheets clean so really nothing to complain about :)

Loved Balaton Beach house. Such a unique place to stay, basically a 4 star hotel that has been smashed up and turned into a non-stop frat party. The staff were really cool and were backpackers themselves - couldn't tell who was working there and who was staying there to be honest! It was a great chilled out rest stop for us, loved the location right next to the beautiful lake. It wasn't the most secure, you could walk straight in and nothing... didn't bother me personally though. Cheers Scotty!

If your ready to party and have a alcohol fuelled night, this hostel is perfect. If you want to relax and have clean rooms, don't stay there. I had fun, staff were great.

Flyers around Budapest say this is a party hostel but nothing could be further from the truth. Balaton is cool but the real parties are in Siofok. If you want to party or buy food after 10pm don't stay here! There is a 24 hour bar down the road but that was pretty quiet. The guy working in the hostel was chilled and friendly enough but not very informative. Buying international train tickets from balaton boglar is a right ball ache.

Was meant to stay one night here and ended up staying for a week! Best place I stayed in by far. Atmosphere is awesome as everyone just seems to be really friendly so most evenings everyone staying at the hostel (plus the staff) just drinks and socialises together. Seb was great and maintained an air of professionalism at all times. Made so many friends here and was gutted to have to leave. Balaton Beach House is unlike anywhere else you will find so GO THERE.

During me and my friends stay at balaton beach house hostel we had an epicly fun time. All of the staff were extremely easy going and the entire atmosphere of the hostel was very relaxed and chilled. Every night nearly the entire hostel would get together and go out for the night socializing until the wee hours of the morning. Definitely recommend to anyone who needs to just relax and get to know tons of people while doing so.

As previous reviews have stated, if you're looking for a clean hostel with safe/locker facilities, then stay away from here. Rooms have no lockers, all bathrooms were flooded, hot water took a while to come on etc. But if you're looking for a great time, this is the place to be. Drinking games every night with a bunch of fun people, going bowling, swims in the lake at 3am. Facilities around the area are not great, so stock up during the day. Despite all the negatives, I didn't want to leave!

Crazy crazy night. If you're looking for a memorable party or two in the epic frat house that is this hostel, don't miss it. Would highly recommend but you need to be prepared for the wildest things you can possibly imagine !

We were supposed to stay here for 4 nights and left after our first. It was dirty and the staff were non existent! We were not greeted by the host (we didn't even see him until he tried to drunkenly swore at us and refused us entry into the hostel, because he felt like it) we were not given a key to our room let alone the hostel itself and, with no lockers provided, we felt very unsafe here. If all this appeals to you, please do stay at balaton beach house hovel... I mean hostel.

The hostel is in a great location and next to a beautiful part of Lake Balaton, but this is literally the only good thing about it. We were not given keys, there is no security, the "manager" had no idea what was going on/was hammered and the rooms/showers are dirty and full of spiders. I would absolutely never go back.

The hostel used to be a hotel, so thy have big rooms and comfortable beds with clean and efficient facilities. The shower had good pressure and was wide enough. The hostel is cleaned daily. The staff is amazing as they go out of their way to make sure every guest has fun and meets other travelers by organizing activities and drinking games in the cellar (party room) or by bringing everybody to the bowling alley down the road or to some of the bars who serve cheap cocktails and beers.

A very interesting experience. Cool old hotel/castle looking place with heaps of potential but now it's kind of just a big student party house. Which is awesome if you feel like partying but not so much if you don't and we just wanted to relax. Staff member nice and did our washing for us and trying to keep place clean but he didn't know much about the area, shower filthy and bikes broken. Also no locks for the door or lockers. Still reccomend to go its an experience and the lake is lovely

Amazing hostel, if your looking for a break from the city this is the place to go, you can relax in the sun by the lake all day and either party or have a quiet night no problem, the staff Scotty and jared are great and the hostel is kept super clean, a great place to go if your looking for good times and want to meet some cool people.

This hostel is brilliant for young, enthusiastic people looking for a party. If you want to party at night and chill during the day this is perfect. Great location as lake is 5 mins away. Lacking lockers and cooking facilities but at the time this seems unimportant due to great atmosphere and friendly staff. This 108 year old "Frat House" gave us a great time and we were sad to leave.
