    Great hoise with walking distance location from all attraction. The hosts are lovely and do their best to accomodate you and help you out. If they are not busy they may share their traditional home made wine and schnapps over a board game after your days travels. Would recommend to anyone

    This is more a b&b/guesthouse than a hostel. It is 20 min walk away from tbe train station and 30 minutes away walking from the city center. Since it is not a hostel, don’t expect a lot of ambiance. That being said, this is an amazing place. It is really clean, the owners are super caring, we shared lots of good moments together when we went to see the sunset on their boat, made hungarian fish soup, went kayaking and tried schnapp. I recommend this place if you are not on a budget!

    Nice, clean hostel. Was a bit far from town, so you have to rent the bike (they offer them). I felt like it was a bit expensive for being so far from town. Overall great experience.

    Nice hostel run by a sweet family. But far from the town but still in a very nice spot. Over priced in my opinion for the facilities offered but still a good stay.

    This hostel is about twenty mins walk from Keszthely train station or about twenty-five mins with luggage. This place doesn't have 24 hr hot showers. I stayed three nights and the shower went cold after a short time and I was the only guest staying there. If multiple people had been staying it would've been a nightmare for all to have a peaceful warm shower. The kitchen has a microwave & refrigerator but no electric/gas oven. Electric cooking plates would've been a bonus to have instead.

    Very Good

    Despite only being able to stay for one night, the staff here were lovely. HOWEVER we definitely felt that this place is not suitable for budget travellers as it’s difficult to get value for money. You have to pay 1000 ft for a locker (no free luggage storage), more for an early check-in/ late check-out, for using facilities after checking out... We stayed in a 7 bed dorm but only 4 were occupied so it felt pretty empty. If the price was lowered it would attract more backpackers and be worth it.
