          A bit hard to find, as there is no outside sign, to show that there is a hostel on that street. Probably the only way to know about this place, is coming upon it on sites, like Hostelbookers or Hostelworld. When reaching the address of the place, you have to push the right button to be buzzed in. After that, you go up some stairs, and find a door that leads to the Barocco Hostel. A little extra time will be needed, but worth it.

          This place feels more like being in someone's home, the place is a great place to stay. The staff is very helpful, and they will do the laundry for you. The rooms are very nice. A lounge to relax in, as well as a good kitchen.

          The location is great, being away from the busy streets. Not too far from the Great Market Hall and the Danube, as well as a 24-hour grocery store. The closest Metro stop is Kalvin ter.

          Some downsides include tight shower space and no internet access for those who don't carry laptops, like myself. As mentioned earlier, the difficulty finding the place. And the room temperature may be an issue for some people.

          But overall, the Barocco Hostel is a very nice place to stay at, and would stay here again in my next visit to Budapest, at the prices that cannot be beat.

          I had almost completed this day and lost the lot. As time is running out as we leave for home in three days, I'll post it now for the photos and rewrite it all later


          We spent the morning cruising the river into Budapest where we arrived just after lunch. The captain took us up through the city so that ...

          ... only supposed to be 250 forints (and Sam should have qualified for a 1/2 price ticket maybe?). You can buy the Budapest transit tickets as a pack of 10 for 3000 forints, or 350 forints each, so I think reselling the 10 tickets must be his regular scam for picking up some spare change. In any case, no real harm done, but next time I will say no thanks. I explained all this to Sam, and he said "Oh, I thought he was just being helpful because we were going to ...

          ... schnitzel as the girls had both said that was what they wanted. Shortly after we arrived, Andrea walked in with her Austrian husband Thomas. I hadn't seen Andrea for 25 years and would not have recognised her if I'd walked past her in the street- apart from everything, she now has very dark hair! She doesn't speak any English and my Hungarian is woeful now, but we muddled through and it was lovely to see her again.

The market hall took quite some time to see, so it was time for a snack at Patas Negra, a nice little tapas bar with outside tables. We had duck in balsamic vinegar and salt, grilled calamari with pesto and fried red pepper with salt, washed down with Kronbacher dark (German) ...

          ... ON THE BUS! After being completely grossed out and relieved to get off that smelly wagon, I got to the subway station in Budapest. I had some troubles with getting a ticket, asked for help and was given a response of, "yeah I don't know what to tell you". After about a half hour if trying to figure out how to get a ticket, I finally did and got on the bus and walked to my first hostel. This place was by far the dirtiest, craziest place ...
