Ideal for those interested in farming, sustainable agriculture and alternative technology. We offer large rooms with shared cooking, bathroom, wc and laundry facilities. As well as being a hostel, ours is a working farm. We are keeping, goats and chickens, and growing vegetables (both on the field and in a poly-tunnel), grain, hay, fruit-trees and staple local food plants such as peas, beans, marrows.
You are welcome to take an interest in our agricultural activities. We aim to be an ecologically sound, sustainable farm. The hostel is, however, in a separate building to the active farm parts, so there's no need to get dirty.
To get the bus from Pecs to Kiskassa (pronounced: paitch, kishkasha).
Walk out straight from the main entrance of railway station,
walk up on the tree-lined avenue, and turn right at the second
set of traffic lights. Walk about 5minutes and the bus station is on your right opposite to the big ARKAD shopping mall. Buses to Kiskassa start from stand 9, except for the
11am one, which starts from stand 10. The buses are usually signed for
Villany or Siklos or Ujpetre, the trip takes about 40 minutes depending on which villages the bus go round to on the way.
There are direct buses from stand 9 at 2pm, 5pm, 7:30pm and 10:30pm on weekdays;
On weekends the 11am, 3:30pm and 10:30pm are also direct.
There are alternatives to Ujpetre, (get off at the stop at the Kiskassa turn-off).
Kiskassa is about a 30 min walk from there; you might get a lift from a local.
If you have a problem ring us. Its a good idea to write Kiskassa on a slip of paper, the drivers are usually helpful.
The EcoHun sign is on the gate.
