Can't beat the location - easy walk to the metro station which takes you right into the city centre.

We arrived with no booking and were checked in at reception by a lady who spoke excellent English and who gave us lots of information about Budapest. Payment is cash only. We were guided to a suitable spot by a gentleman (who unfortunately didn't speak English and who got a bit confused when he realised our door was on the "wrong" side), but he had everyone lined up neatly and spacing was adequate, though not generous.

Its a bit noisy (especially from the ambulance station nearby) but that's to be expected from a city centre site. The showers lacked privacy (not uncommon in many of the eastern European sites) but were very clean. Fantastic automated washing machines (pay by cash or card) - large capacity, very quick cycle and detergent is included.

The bar/restaurant on site serves good but basic food and is very good value for money.

I'd definitely stay here again to visit Budapest.

I cut to the basic question I look at when trying to locate a campsite. Positives;

1/ It is the only centrally located site to Budapest.

2/ petrol station opposite, very cheap prices, it was worth arriving empty from vienna and filling up there.

3/ petrol station has a small shop and there is another supermarket 3 minutes on the same road.

4/ there were two people on arrival. One that did the whole talk in 1 minute flat, I kept telling him to slow down. He spoke good English. The other person there was very helpful and showed us all the good places to visit on a map and wrote all the information down. Local metro station. Bus etc.

5/ He also gave us good advice on getting the 'hop-on, hop-off' bus. They sell the tickets there too! 48 hour ticket as we were staying for 2 days. There is a stop 2 minutes from there too. It is all great. This is the best choice if you don't have enough days to see the place. This bus takes you around drops you off. , has commentary in 10 languages and you get the water boat trip and the night tour with it for free! you get 10% discount entries in certain places but we did not test this out.

6/ The place has good showers, toilet facilities, washing area, water and waste disposal area. It is basic as it says in the last review and not up to our standard but considering the whole country, this is considered very good. It is not a as bad as described though. I wore my on slippers in and out of the shower as they all did. So muddy or not, it did not affect me

7/ Price, is very cheap. In fact less than half the price of one night in Vienna!

8/ there is a small restaurant in it that closes at 10pm. We didn't try it

Bad points:

1/ it is not really big and nothing is in it. Everyone there is only 'parked' to go out in the day and come out last thing at night. So Don't expect greenery or birds or anything like that. It is just a parking space in the middle of the city really.

2/ most of the people had no booking and just pitched up asking for a night or two. So they added them in no matter how busy. In saying that, we had a camper so our section was organised and all cars parked in line with electrics. The tents were more like 1 or 2 people tent, more like hikers and hardcore basic campers, not sure I would use a bigger tent or have my family there.

3/ The toilets and showers are in the same place, so when busy it was really 'stinky' in the showers when people used the toilets. I could see the shock on peoples faces when they used the toilets or showers but somehow, I managed to blend in, it reminded me of my trip to egypt. It is not a rich country and the whole standard is lower but people are friendlier than other places I have been too (Like Venice for example).

4/ My wife refused to use the showers as it only had curtains to close them and they were in a block of 3 (2 blocks, total 6 showers). That was not a problem for me since my local gym in the UK does not even have curtains in the cubicles! so that was not a problem to me.

5/ People may come across as loud and rude ( not as bad as Venice or Paris) but they are really helpful and kind. It took me a few minutes to understand that.

Would I book again, yes. Considering it was the busiest time of the year for them and some of the people camping there give it a bad name by abusing it. It is not one of the best I have been in but considering the alternatives, this was the best for me in visiting this country.

We had seen favourable reviews for this campsite and chose it as being the most convenient site for visiting Budapest. Unfortunately it didn’t live up to expectations, to put it mildly. To be fair, city-centre sites are often busy and noisy, and Hungarian sites can be a bit basic. In low season, when not so crowded, and at ACSI rates, Haller Camping would just about be acceptable. In high season, packed in like sardines and at the equivalent of 25 euros a night, it was purgatory!

The approach to the site was off-putting, up a narrow residential street with cars parked on both sides. There was a queue to get in, made more complicated when cars wanted to leave the campsite and everyone had to reverse to let them out – a tricky manoeuvre in a narrow road. However, on the plus side, the reception staff were very friendly and spoke good English, and told us to drive in and find ourselves a pitch. We had phoned about 40 minutes before, as we approached Budapest, and were told there was plenty of space. The site has two separate areas.

The first area, to the left of reception, has some shade from mature trees, but was almost entirely covered with small tents, and looked like Glastonbury without the mud! We drove up a short slope to the second area, mostly caravans and motorhomes, but with some tents too. Here there was no shade, just a few young trees which will take quite a few years to become any use as shade. There were no numbered pitches, just a free-for-all, with units pitched at all angles very close to each other with no regard to safety regulations. The ground was covered in a spaghetti of extension leads. We squeezed into what appeared to be the only available space, but several more units arrived later and were somehow shoe-horned in.

The photo in the ACSI book shows a grassy surface, but that must have been a few years ago – the grass has been almost entirely worn away, leaving an uneven surface of bare, dusty earth. It must get very muddy if it rains.

The sanitary facilities are very basic, housed in a sort of portable cabin. The toilets have seats and paper, and were cleaned regularly, but the showers lacked privacy, with a communal changing area and only a few pegs, several feet away from the showers, to hang towels and clothes. However there was ample hot water and the showers were fully controllable. Because of the dusty conditions underfoot the floor of the shower block got very muddy.

The washing-up sinks were fine, outside but under cover and with hot water. There was a laundry room with free washing machines and communal drying racks, and during our stay it was in constant use. Wifi is free and available throughout the site, but the connection was very poor.

We didn’t use the bar or restaurant but they were very popular. There’s no shop but some supermarkets close by. Surprisingly there was little traffic noise, but a great deal of “people” noise! We had originally intended to stay four nights but couldn’t face more than two. There is a metro station nearby so it’s easy to get into the centre of Budapest, where we used one of the “hop on, hop off” tour buses to see the sights. A boat trip on the Danube was included in the price, which was 5,000 forints (about £14.)

Although conveniently situated, I have to say it was one of the worst sites we’ve ever stayed in!
