Ginkgo was nice and quiet, with friendly staff.
It was weird that one dorm room is accessed through another dorm room, meaning that people were walking past our beds a lot.
Unfortunately you can't get wifi from the rooms, but I guess that means we spent more time being social in the common area.
Location is excellent!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Staying at Ginkgo will open up hundreds of years of Hungarian history to you: it is housed in a historical art nouveau building that still bears bullet holes from the 1956 Revolution against Soviet occupation. The hostel is located in a flat that was privatized after the change of regimes. Historical marks surround you whether you are outside the building or in Gingko's unique courtyard. Ginkgo Hostel lies in the heart of downtown Budapest, near the Danube, on the Pest side of the city. In a few minutes you can reach historic sites and the most popular cafes, restaurants and pubs as well. ... more less
