    Amazing place with the best hosts— you truly couldn’t find a more hidden gem. You do have to pay extra for different activities but by EU or US standards they are very affordable and led by the couple who own the hostel. Very clean and very hospitable place. I’ll definitely be going again!

    Very clean and very hospitable owners, but they wanted to sell me everything. Want a locker? Extra $1000. Kept asking if I wanted to buy other services, too. Like bike and sailboat. Other than that it's great place to stay, very peaceful. Their kids were running around all over but were well behaved so I guess that's fine. Very close to the nice sand beach, and beach restaurants as well. Hosts insisted I try their home made wines and schnapps which were great... And free lol.

    I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. It's very close to the beach (but a bit far from the old town). The hosts were very kind and gave me great recommendations for things to do in the area. You can rent bikes at their place and they offer kayaking or sailing as well.

    Pretty much what the rest of the reviews say. Nice spot, spotlessly clean and cosy, near the beach and a 20 min walk to town and train station. Several large supermarkets and restaurants nearby. Facilities available for extra cost eg bike hire, boat trips, late check out. Limited self catering facilities available.

    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!

    This hostel was in a nice location and had nice owners. However, as mentioned, you are charged extra for many things (late/early check-in, bike rental, any type of baggage storage!, train drop off etc). The hostel bunks were very close in our room. My friend and I both slept on neighboring bottom bunks but I would have been very uncomfortable sleeping that close to a stranger if I had to.

    Scammers. Avoid. I booked a room for 8900 HUF. Upon arrival, they claimed that there was an issue with the booking system and I should pay 1600 HUF. This 'issue' was not known to the website and I was not told in the 9 days between making the booking and arriving (despite the property having my phone number and email address). Sounded like a scam, so I left and went elsewhere.
