From Nyugati train station
Once you come out of the station you have 2 options. You either take a short walk (5-7 minutes) or take the tram. If you have the energy we suggest to walk. But first of all, check out the building you’re in front of, as it is very beautiful. It was designed by Eiffel!
If you choose to walk, turn right and walk towards Margaret bridge. Walk on the pavement till you get to the beginning of the bridge. You will see the tram stop of line 2 on the left side of Margaret Bridge. Keep walking along the tracks of it for about a minute and you will see a sign for the hostel at 27 Balassi Bálint street. Go to the doorbell and ring 53.
If you rather take the other option, you will have to have some hungarian currency. Once you come out the station, you will see 2 tram stops (of the Tram 4 and 6, doesn’t matter which one you take). Before you get on it, make sure to buy tickets at the maschine in the stop. You will have to buy a single way ticket, which will cost HUF 350/person. Once you have it, get on the tram (4 or 6) and go 1 stop till Jászai Mari tér (to the right, towards Széll Kálmán tér). Get off there and cross the boulevard to the left. You’ll see the tracks of tram number 2. Walk along them to 27 Balassi Bálint street, and ring 53 on the doorbell.
