    Located right on the inner ring of Budapest a stone’s throw from the Great Market Hall and the Danube, the Goat Hostel offers everything that a budget traveller could ask for. It is located in a converted first floor flat and is central, cheap, clean, and friendly. While the bedding is quite Spartan there is a lovely light filled common room replete with sofas and computers for internet access or a quiet refuge from the rigors of the city. The friendly staff is always happy to welcome travellers from all over the world and there is an easy feel as visitors take advantage of the central location to come and go during the course of the day. For a small fee the road weary traveller can even do their laundry in the in-house washing machine. The bathrooms are quite clean and there is a private shower. This goat is certainly a swan.

    Clean and not stacked to the brim with guests – there would certainly be room for more bed bunks in the dormitories – the Goat is run by a friendly Anglo-Hungarian couple happy to give advice about where to go and what to do in Budapest. Their double rooms have comfy beds and relaxing sitting room areas. Chill spaces, in the modern parlance. Shared facilities include the kitchen and bathrooms, with separate lavatories. There are locks on all the appropriate doors. Linen and towels are close to hotel quality. The cosy living room comes complete with DVDs to choose from and (when they’re both working) two online work stations. Free wifi as well, which should be standard these days whether hostel or five star hotel. Breakfast is cornflakes and toast but is included in the room rate, which you can’t really complain about.

    Intrigued by the name, and guided by good ratings and the cheap price, my friends and I booked three nights at the Goat Hostel. When we arrived, I was momentarily concerned because there was no indication of a hostel around. Those concerns evaporated the minute the man who worked at the hostel let us in. Seeing that we were exhausted after not sleeping on a night train, he hurried to clean the room so we could nap. It was unexpected and very kind. The room was nothing special, but clean with bunk beds and lockers. There is a small kitchen and a room to hang out in. The atmosphere was friendly and in the morning they offered to make espresso.
