Get to know Budapest (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Budapest.


Budapest is the capital of Hungary and home to over 1.7 million Hungarians. It was founded in the 12th century and was ruled by the Greek Empire at the time. Budapest is made up of the Buda and Pest areas which used to be separate cities. Budapest also has an old city section which is a very nice place to visit, especially during summertime.

Hostels in Budapest are a very good value. You will probably end up paying about 10 euros (approximately 12 USD) for a dorm bed, and slightly more for double / twin rooms. Budapest and all of Hungary is a great country for budget travelers, because accommodation and food are very good and inexpensive. Also remember to ask your Budapest hostel staff / owners for tips on what to do around the city and what events are going on during your visit.

You can get to Budapest by airplane (Budapest International Airport: BUD). The city can also be reached by all main forms of public transportation: trains, buses and so on. Although the city area itself is not that large, there are some attractions that will require you to use the public transport if you want to see them. That is not a problem however, since the public transport system is well developed and inexpensive to use. The public transport is comprised of metros, buses, and trams.

There are many, many things to see and do when you stay in a Budapest hostel. It is best to ask your Budapest hostel staff and/or the information centers around the city for a map before heading off.
