    Pol's hostel - Great location & value


    Experience: I spend 5 nights at one of the rooms (very large, double bed, closet) at the addresses: Hercegprímás utca 3. Great location right in the centre of Budapest. Loved the courtyard that I looked down on when leaving my apartment door. Also save to store your belongings at your room, since there were 3 (locked) doors to be opened from the main street. Bathroom is shared and is clean.

    Service:This hostel doesn't have 24 hours reception and wants you to confirm you arrival time just few days before you come. There was someone to welcome us and help us to get the first information to get around easily. There was a kitchen free of use near the reception and in our own apartment.

    During my stay there was some construction work to be done at one of the neighboring locations, so at morning there was some loud drilling, that's all the negative coments I can tell.

    Unique Quality: The courtyard at this hostel is great, shadowed and a quiet place to relax from the heat or traffic

    Directions: If you stay at this hostel, I would recommend to enjoy a good glass or bottle of Hungarian wine at the DiVino Wine Bar at night. Especially in summer time Budapest can be very hot, even at night, and lovely to enjoy the Basilik at night.

Family (48-Hour) Ticket for public transport

by kbyrne

Hi all

Does anyone know if I can buy the family ticket at the airport (T2) or can I just get the single tickets? If I can't get it at the airport, do you know if the ticket office at Moszkva Ter will be open on a sunday evening about 8.00pm?

I´m fairly certain that the airport won´t help much with any "city transportation" except for the express taxi shuttle service into the city. But you stand a good chance of the larger metro stations being open such as Keleti pu. and probably Moszkva Ter. The people at the airport (except for those at the café) are rather un-helpful and dislikeable people, if you don´t mind me saying so.

Hello Karen,

The ticket office at Moszkva tér metro station is open every day from 6.00AM to 8.00PM.
At the airport you can buy only single tickets or bunch of tickets (10 or 20).

Travel Tips for Budapest

Fishermen's Bastion (Halászbástya)

by Sarita76

The Neo-Romanesque Fishermen's Bastion was built at the turn of the century as part of the reconstruction of the Matthias Church and its surroundings, in the Castle District, not far from the Royal Palace. Tradition has it that this stretch of the medieval ramparts used to be defended by the fishermen's guild, though the name might also derive from a nearby former fish market.

The seven towers represent the seven Magyar (Hungarian) tribes. Each of the chiefs has his own statue, and the steps leading down to the city are dotted with figures, such as St. George and the Dragon.

The function of the present bastion was both decorative and to serve as a look-out terrace over the Danube. The view from here is magnificent - Margaret Island, Margaret Bridge and the Parliament are to the left, the Chain Bridge, the riverside hotels, Elizabeth Bridge and Gellért Hill to the right. In 1988 the entire panorama of the Danube embankment in central Budapest was added to UNESCO's World Heritage List.

Elizabeth Bridge (Erzsebet hid)

by Gentleman75

The new Elizabeth Bridge on 15th March and the Gellert Hill on back. The old bridge was nicer, but unfortunately it was explosed in the WWII on 18th January 1945. The new one is only 40 years old.

by Heniko

Budapest is divided into 23 separate districts, each indicated by a Roman numeral which prefixes the street name i.e. VI. Budakeszi ut 65. Post codes comprise of four digits: 1067; the middle two representing the district - i.e. 06 is district VI. The most common type of street is an utca (often abbreviated as u.) although confusingly an ut. refers to a wide boulevard. Other thoroughfare names include: fasor (alley), rakpart (embankment).

Visegrad Castle - Mideavel History @ its finest

by beluga

The Visegrad castle is famous in Hungary. And for a reason. The castle was built around 1258. In the 14th century it became the seat of Royal power. The town of Visegrad grew rapidly in those days. Much of the town and castle was later destroyed during the turkish occupation.

Currently the castle is being restored. Its location is magnificent. Views over the Donau are very nice and inside the castle they made some exhibitions.
