The downstairs dining hall leads to an outdoor patio with fire pit, ideal for after-parties.
The accomodations are hostel/dormitory style, with shared rooms from 4 to 8 persons maximum. Bathrooms are private per room or semi-private/shared.
The Gázsa Band was formed in 1992 by some of the best folk musicians in Hungary who have spent years studying and learning authentic village music from famous masters of folk music, who, in most cases, lived in remote rural areas. The band takes its name from the leader’s nick-name, István Papp. He was born and raised in Transylvania and has played with many ‘giants’ of Hungarian folk music. A graduate of the Conservatory of Music, Kolozsvár (Cluj), Gázsa was influential in starting and providing music for the first Táncház (community folkdance event) in Kolozsvár while he was a student. This was a significant step, since this folk-revival movement offered the basic impulse to hundreds of young musicians to learn and preserve authentic folk music of the Carpathian Basin. The Gázsa Band has accompanied the famous Budapest Ensemble for more than a decade. Together, they have performed in many countries, including the United States, Canada and Mexico, to critical acclaim.
