Join Couchsurfing to see Zoltán’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm an open minded guy living in Budapest. I like to get to know new people, I can host or just hang out in the city, make a tour or have a drink. I have experience in tours, I have been doing it for over 3 years. Now I'm a tourist guide officially too. I speak several languages, on different levels, but all of them sufficiently to communicate. I am kind and welcoming, sometimes I have problems with time but no worries eheh. I prefer accepting requests of ppl with reference (from experience). So... that's all at the moment :D.
P.s. I will know if you didn't read my profile if you write about your trip to "Eastern Europe" referring to Budapest. Budapest as we know it is in Central-Europe ;).
Pls if you come be aware that I don't live in any central touristic area.
Enjoy your life, don't hurt others
Couchsurfing is not good because of a free place but for know other cultures, have valuable time and make new friendship!
Try to be kind even if sometimes it is very difficult, and if you fail next time you will make it ;).
Believe in yourself, never be ashamed because of who you are.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Usually I can host surfer(s). Several times I just meet travelers who write me and we pass some time together, walking around or grabing a wine/kriek whatever :D.
I prefer local places, why should you go to places where there are just tourists if you are in Budapest ;)?
When I host I try to spend time with my guests as I don't think Cs is ONLY about a place to sleep. It is an experience, opportunity to meet great people.
I have had lots of nice experiences on Cs, mostly hosting, I had surfed only once, I hope that it's soon my turn to travel and surf ;).
I like architecture, theater /opera/, culture of other countries, BELGIAN beers (and usually belgian everything) make new friendships, ride the bike, rollerskate, hugs, a good rétes (strudel), good wine in good company, a good dinner. And languages/linguistics, of course.
Music, Movies, and Books
Fado, Classical music, opera, Édith Piaf, Mina, Amalia Rodrigues, Scorpions, Queen, ABBA, John Williams, Greek music, Antonis Remos, Astor Piazzola, argentinian tango, and so on...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
My two weeks in Italy some years ago.
Passing one night as ''homeless'' in Paris.
Teach, Learn, Share
I teach Italian, from A1 to C1. If there is someone who is interested in Italian and knows French, we can do exchange lessons.
And I teach Hungarian too, I tought Hungarian to Italians and I think I can teach it to others too :).
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can offer you a place to sleep, my company, cultural exchange, usually a free city tour, maybe some home made stuff if you come in the good time :).
And here sadly but I have to add:
After some not nice feedbacks: my place is not a hotel. I can give you some sheet, functional ones. I usually have 1 emergency towel, once it was in laundry because I was about to travel and had to wash everything and my just arrived surfers complained. So, if your towel was stolen/broken I can help you out, but personally I am always surprised as I prefer to use my towel and I ALWAYS bring it with me.
As several things were broken in the flat please keep in consideration: by now I charge broken glasses, plates etc. on my surfers.
Some people like abusing availibility and time of others and show few respect or think that Cs means free hotel. Please those don't even message me.
Countries I’ve Visited
Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Monaco, Portugal, Slovakia, United Kingdom
