    Very nice Hostel in a great location- Maverick

    by

    Maverick was a great place to stay during my 3 night stay in Budapest last year.

    It was a bit hard to find at first, the easiest way to find it is look for the bus stop on Ferenciek Tere and its basically right behind it. The entry is a bit of a hassle, you need to be rung in and if the building guard isn't there it sometimes took a bit longer, but in the end it really wasn't a major inconvenience.

    Location- location was excellent. Right in the middle of downtown Pest. Metro is at your doorstep as are buses and taxis. Cab to the train station, taken in the wee hours of the morning, was something like 7 dollars US from what i remember.

    Hostel was nice and clean. A nice reception area with internet connection and nicely decorated. Nobody seemed to have any complaints. I stayed in a double room which was a good value for the money with ensuite bathroom. Very high ceilings, i thought there would be a lot of light in the room at night, but wasn't really a factor at all, bed was nice and comfortable and quiet at night so i rested very nicely.

    The only thing that would have made it much better was breakfast. You were directed to a small cafe that really doesn't open until somewhat late. Plenty of nice little bakeries around to get a bite in the morning though.

    Would I stay here again,,,absolutely!

    Unique Quality: I really liked how well run this hostel is. Rooms were cleaned well each morning and staff really went out of its way to make sure you were comfortable and everything was going as well as possible. Staff gave me some superb suggestions for places to eat. All of the staff that I met spoke great English.

    Location was exceptional, about two blocks to the Danube, which was magnificent early in the morning before everyone got going. It was also a short walk to shopping and places of interest.

    On Friday nights the staff makes a hungarian dinner for the guests.

    Directions: right behind the bus stop at Ferenciek Tere.

money!

by eztiger

even tho Hungary still has its own currency, i have noticed from reading alot of guides that euros and american dollars are widely accepted.... im going to budapest in july, is it worth havin some euros in cash or should i stick with the hungarian currency ?

Re: money!

by fischert

Hi,

If you use EUR os USD it's sure that you will be highly overcharged, everywhere. You can find lots of money change offices where you can change money. It's worth changing to HUF and use it. Or you can use your bank card almost everywhere. It's still a good option.

Feel free to ask if you have more questions about your stay.

I was there for fours in October Never used dollars or Euros. Used ATM to get Florints

Re: money!

by nicolaitan

any time a vendor can get you to pay in a currency other than the one for which the price is posted, he ( or she ) can exchange currencies at a rate favorable to themselves and certainly not to you. if a vendor won't take florints, give them a credit card or debit card. even with the fees most cards have, you will be better off and have the security of knowing you can dispute an unreasonable charge.

dino, where are your images?

Re: money!

by Redang

Euros are accepted in some shops and even stands on the street, and I've oticed than the rate was fairly convenient, so, you can decide to use euros or not; regarding USD, I really don't know

Re: money!

Hello!

My husband and I were in Budapest last September. I did not see any places that accepted USD as currency. However, there were some places that accepted Euros. That being said, in most cases, your money is going to go much further, and you will get a better exchange, if you use the local currency - HUF (Hungarian Forint). Hope this helps!

Happy Travels!

Travel Tips for Budapest

Hungarian Crown

by ruubje

This is a picture of the famous crown, the crown with the cross on top not entirely perpendicular, the crown all Hungarians know about and get excited about when they see it. If you pay attention to it, you see it everywhere. So, for example here in Stephen's Basilica. But also in many statues and the real thing that is saved in the Matthew Church.

The 2nd Classical Performace...

by coceng

Here on these photos, I shall share with you guys some amazing first time experiences for me seeing the Classical performances !
It was great !
My host Alain accompanied me in the 2 Opera Theaters that he took me.
This is me ! Holding my drink to Alain (he took this photo !) for such a great night out !
I had put my Walkur text on a sofa near where this photo was taken; After that, when I turned back to the sofa to get it it was gone !
I was so angry why would people took it or rather steal it !
Alain said, "This is Budapest !".
Whatever that could mean...
Alain had to buy me a new one...

UNICUM- Cure for all of lifes problems

by biggeorge

A shot of unicum after a hearty meal ( and hungarian meals can get a bit hearty ) is essential to ensure the food is digested properly allowing you to force more beer in on top of it.
It's a digestif like Jagermeister or Strega but much stronger ,the recipe was hidden during the communists but the bomb shaped bottles are everywhere now.
According to various friends it either tastes of herbs ,fire or like drinking an ashtray but it's a blinding hangover cure and a usefull medicine for colds and flu. It also like tequila relieves beer bloatedness allowing for much greater consumption and wins you local coolness points because tourists normally hate it , however if you wince as you down it these will dissapear as everyone says you are a little girl!
The hangovers are monumental though ( think 40 fags and two bottles of champagne ) and the only cure is to get drunk again.
Whatever you do DON'T MIX IT WITH ANYTHING as it's like going to Russia and ordering Vodka and orange.

F 1 in August!

by anaiis

For all those formula Grand Prix fans - you are wellcomed in Budapest in August. For all the others - keep away from Budapest at that time!!! The rates of hotels, apartments and everything are the same as in New Year days! To pay the double price even if you don't go wathing formula racing? Not me, thanx! In 2003 the days to avoid travelling are: 15th - 17th of August.

The 'Glass House'

by leics

To be perfectly honest I would have walked past this place were it not for my guidebook.

In fact, I walked past it anyway. I was expecting something more than what looked like a 1960s UK council building.

But the 'Glass House' is important in two ways. Firstly, because of its style......definitely not usual for Budapest.....and, more importantly, because it was one of the places which was used to save some of Hungary's Jews during the latter part of the Second World War.

Swiss consular officials made some buildings 'neutral' by declaring the part of Switzerland. The 'Glass House' gave safety to more than 3000 Jews from 1944-45. There is an exhibition, but it was closed when I visited.

There are also plaques on the walls outside.

A special place but easily ignored.

29 Vadasz Utca, in the Lipotvaros district. Open 1-4pm daily.
