A group of us traveling to Budapest for 5 days 13th - 18th August and just wondering which parts of the city we should be looking for accom. in ? Only after realising that the Grand Prix is that weekend so accomm is disappearing rapidly!! Any help appreciated...am finding place names in the city kinda confusing!
we stayed in the Downtown Hostel on Kiralyi Pu #7 and it's really an apartment these two dudes share and open up to young backpackers. Across from Holiday Inn hotel. It's fun... and verrrrrry chill. The guys working there last were nice.
It's on the Pest side (most accomodation is), its SUPER cheap by comparison to other pesty hostels w/ kitchen to use & free internet(!!). Take blue metro line to Kalvin or Ferenc stop.
Red Bus Hostel is more put together & clean, but more expensive and stiffer.
i can recommend the Yellow Submarine if u want to party. Its a great time but not very clean and orderly. its located near the Western Trainstation.
