Hullam Hostel was built nearly 100 years ago and it stands in the heart of the town of Revfulop. Revfulop is situated on the north shore of the lake on the boundary of the Balaton-Highland National Park and the Kali Basin. You can see the whole lake from the nearby tower. The town is famous for its excellent wine, its sports events (e.g. swimming across Lake Balaton) beaches and ancient trees.
This hostel is a great base in and out from Budapest or the Adriatic Sea. If you are curious to discover this unique region of Hungary and to meet locals or to taste the local specialities (in music, food, customs) then this hostel is probably the best choice for you.
We usually have live music bands ( folk, jazz ) on the evenings and cooking together on open fire is quite common, too. There are several local festivals around and we provide up-to-date info about these.
If you need some privacy the other day then you can read or have a nap in a hammock back in the garden.
You can rent a bike at your disposal on the spot. The nearby Kali basin is a true paradise for bike lovers with its beautiful surroundings and rare fauna. The lake is ideal for sailing and swimming, too. There are 2 local beaches to choose from, both are a few minutes walk from the hostel. You can also go horse riding in the neighbouring village of Kovagoors.
All at exceedingly modest prices!
A place for all ages and interests highly recommended. The hostel is 2 and a half hour away from Budapest by train. It is easily accesable also from Balaton Airport ( 40 km away).
