I'll be in Budapest for about a day and a half in a couple of weeks, and I've been doing some research on the internet about public transport.
I could get an undeground map, but there was no way for me to find the trams map and timetables.

My question is, what is the best option for moving around the city? I'll be staying in the outskirts, and I know I got a metro stop just by the hostel, but once i'm "downtown" everything looks quite spread. are trams a good option? (any similar to Prague)

Budapest is a really easy place to get around. The trams usually run in an almost full circle so you can always get back to where you came from.
The metro runs directly beneath the main streets (I mean directly, one flight of steps down), it's cheap, it's efficient... but don't travel without a ticket - buy yourself a multiple pass in the Tourist Info office or in the station.
Walking is also a good option as the centres of both sides of the river are pretty compact - take a tram from one side to the other.
Most of all don't worry about getting from place to place, it'll happen.
