It's got a ceiling and four walls holding it up...

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 5, 2005

If you're backpacking around Europe and staying in Budget accomodation, you've got to expect some very basic living conditions at some stage.

The Hotel Griff Junior, at under a tenner a night per person, is exactly that...a ceiling with four walls holding it up, and some air in between. Perfect! They even give you a bed, some sheets to sleep under (clean ones!) and a window to look out of.

The showers and toilets are communal and don't smell too great. The breakfast is about as basic as you can get - tea, coffee, a bit of bread, and a few slices of ham and cheese.

If you were coming here on holiday expecting a hotel, you'd move somewhere else. But if you're hiking it on a tight budget, it'll do OK.

Unique Quality: There's hundreds of rooms in this place, so you might even get to meet some other people.

The place is about a half an hour walk from the Danube, but luckily there's a tram stop right outside, and the two trams running from it will take to right to the heart of the city.

Directions: Easiest way to get there is find a 19 or a 49 tram running from the centre, and they'll drop you off pretty much right outside.

A very good youth hostel!

Just next to the fancy Griff Hotel, you'll find this nice hostel located in the southeast of the city. Although the accomodation, expectingly, won't be fancy, it's going to be more than enough to offer a few nights to stay and roam the city! Also, easy to connect to the city - tram lines from there will take you to the center in a snap!

Unique Quality: Huge rooms! I was so suprised when I saw how big a 4-bedroom is! You can play soccer inside, literally! The bathroom facilities weren't such a charm though, prepare for troubles in that area :)

Directions: southeast of the city, about 5 minutes of walk from Budapest Kelenfold train station
