“Not a cyclist-friendly hostel, though they claim to be”
Reviewed 29 August 2011

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.

Room for five people has just two-level beds and a table with one(!!) chair.
Only one wall power outlet is available in the room. Towels are available for additional fee. Free WiFi is working only in cafe, not in hostel.

Reviewed 24 July 2009

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 town, so it's close to lots of nice cafes and the shopping area. The Lake and beach at Keszthely is really nice - it has all kinds of stuff to do, like cafes, bars, shady grassed areas, minigolf, water polo, volleyball.... but to go you have to pay - about 3EU I think. So be prepared!
