This is a nice hostel, the staff is very helpful and friendly. The room and the area were clean. It has a nice backyard too. A good value for money. ---------------------------------------------------

Keszthely is quite a dull place, and so it is difficult to be in a 'good' location, so I'd imagine that the hostels location right by the castle is about as good as it gets, 20 minutes walking distance from the station. The hostel was clean but there were no real kitchen facilities (conveniently, as it doubles up as a...

This place is so so dull. The cafe closes at 7pm and it's far out from the lake in what seemed to be a dodgier part of town. For what you pay this isn't great, Keszthely is a very small holiday resort and so the accommodation should be priced accordingly. The shower room smelt damp and was unsafe, the bath...

We were on a bike tour along the Lake Balaton. The room was clean and there is a lockable bike storage. Close to the center and the Castle Festetics. Very nice staff. There is no kitchen, but in the common room, there is Microwave, a fridge and a water kettle.

The grounds are nice to sit out in when the weather is good. The location is a bit away from the centre of town...

Hostel says that they are bike-friemdly, but the only designated area for bike storage is non-guarded area without the shelter from the rain. It is not allowed to take bikes inside the room. We had expensive bikes and took them inside to avoid them to be stolen. Hostel owner wanted a huge penalty fee from us, even called the police....

Ambient was a nice little place, very clean, very nice cafe with wifi downstairs. It was sort of between a hostel and a cheap guesthouse - it had dorm rooms, but no kitchen or lockers or such, although there was a common area. It was quite a walk from the Lake, about 20 mins, but it's right next to the...
