Hungary is a small country in Europe that is considered to be one of the oldest European countries, situated in the middle of the continent in Central Europe. This is the country which boasts one of the world’s most beautiful cities: Budapest, the “Pearl of the Danube”.
Apart from reeling people in to see the beauty in what is “old”, Hungary is visited by tourists because of its fresh water lake, Balaton. It is Central Europe’s largest fresh water lake providing natural paradise for its visitors. Hungary also has hundreds of therapeutic mineral springs gushing up from the depths creating a spectacular show for anyone.
Seeing that so many people will be visiting Hungary, there is a wonderful hostel in Budapest that will be great for those who are travelling on a tight budget – Downtown Oasis.
Downtown Oasis is a small, homely and beautifully renovated place in the heart of buzzing historic downtown, within walking distance of most of the sights and right in the entertainment quarter. In the heart of Budapest downtown, the hostel provides a calm, cozy and intimate atmosphere where after a tiring day of traveling or sightseeing you can relax and really feel at home.
It is less than five minutes walk away from the famous Vaci street, a fashionable all pedestrian shopping area, and the nightlife and entertainment quarter, packed with trendy pubs, clubs, cafes, fancy restaurants as well as cheap eateries. Only three minutes walk away from the blue, yellow and red metro line stops, night buses, and trams to the Buda side, the hostel provides an ideal base for exploring Budapest’s rich past as well as its vibrant multicultural present.
The owners have turned a beautifully renovated classic Budapest apartment into a small hostel so that you, the budget traveler, can enjoy quality accommodation at bargain price, and get a glimpse of Budapest as only locals know it.
Top service is the hostel’s priority, thus the hostel has very friendly staff that would be delighted to give you an overview of the best places to go to. Also, if you would like, they can help you plan the most efficient ways to do your sightseeing.
Downtown Oasis has beautiful rooms with large living rooms and fully equipped kitchen. Each room also has great views. If you’re a person who loves connecting with people in social networks, they have wireless internet connection in the rooms and a desktop computer outside the rooms.
However, the hostel does not have a 24 hour reception, which means that you will have to notify them when you are going to arrive. You’ll have your own keys so you can come and go as you please all day round.
Overall, hostel guests have rated 98% for the hostel with a 100% rating on both the staff and its cleanliness. The rooms may not be that big and is not a place where you can meet many people and party but it has got the best service you can get in Budapest. Friendly staff will also mean happy guests.
