Our mountain hostel is not reachable by car, the last stage of the road coming up from Szentendre city can be only used by vehicles that have autorisation of the forestry company. The House can be reached about in 1,5 hours on foot from the main parking sites or from the public transport destinations. Generally we can say that the easiest way to get here is the yellow hiking trail starting from Szentendre railway and bus station, we recommend this way for families with little children and elderly peolpe. The green hiking trail stating from Pomáz city is more touristic, but with a steeper incline, and in rainy periods it can be muddy as well. Or those who arrive with car, parking at Lajosforrás can be a good solution, the yellow hiking trail leeding to the House widing through the forest and the altitude difernce is also friendly. We recommend to allof our guests the use of an online or printed map when navigating to the house, and depending on the time of the unset, a torch in the backpack might be useful as well.
