How to get there

From 'Keleti' railway station: Exit the railway station by the main front gate -with the big clock behind the wide stairs. Then walk forward, cross the traffic light and head right to the street where the McDonalds and Burger King restaurants are located, which is Bethlen Gabor utca. Look for the door number 8 -at the building on the corner where is the 24-hours ABC supermarket.

From the Ferihegy Airport:
By taxi: This is the best way if you are two, three or four persons. We do recommed you to take 'Zona Taxi' -with affordable prices (less than 20 euros to the hostel plus an expected tip of 10%)

By public transportation: First, buy 3 tickets (one for the bus and two for the metro) from the ticket's machine at the bus stop or inside the bus. Take the bus to the last stop (Köbánya-Kispest) -which is also the first stop of the blue metro line (M3). Then be sure to punch the 2nd ticket before you board the metro. Take the metro, get off at 'Deak ter' and change to the red metro line (M2) in direction to 'Ors Vezer tere' -and punch the last ticket- and get off at 'Keleti' railway station. Then follow the instructions given above.

By Airport Minibus: The Airport Minibus is cheaper than a taxi if you are alone. The fee is around 10 euros per person to the hostel door.

From international bus station 'Nepliget': Take the blue metro (M3) in direction 'Ujpest Kozpont' and get off at 'Deak F. ter' and change metro to red metro line (M2) in direction to 'Ors Vezer tere' and get off at 'Keleti' station and follow the indications given above.

From 'Deli' railway station: Take the redmetro (M2) in direction to 'Ors Vezer tere' and get off at 'Keleti' station and follow the indications given above.

From 'Nyugati' railway station: Take trolley bus number 73 at Podmanizky utca (in front of the post office) and get off at the last stop called Bethlen Gabor utca. The hostel is just in front of the last stop at number 8.

WARNING: In Budapest is necessary to punch a new ticket every time a different metro line, bus or tram is taken. Unlike other countries, in Budapest a ticket is valid for 30 minutes only but just for that particular metro line, bus or tram. Be watchfull as there are many ticket controllers around!

Nearest airport: Ferihegy 2 (aprox. 30 minutes by taxi or minibus service)
