I have a very bad experience with this hostel although I have never stayed there. Me and my friend were planning a trip to Budapest and I decided to book a room with the Red Bus Hostel. I filled in the reservation form, including my payment card number and waited for a confirmation (otherwise the reservation is not valid). Nothing... More

I stayed here in August 2006. I had a private room which was a good size. The room, the toilet, shower and all the communal areas were spotlessly clean. It was quiet but central - just what I was looking for. I arrived at around midnight but it was no problem. The staff were really friendly. I have to admit... More

Safe, super-clean, quiet and centrally located. A perfect no frills hostel to act as a base for sight seeing. And Cafe Eklektika located directly opposite is great for relatively cheap western food and a night on the Dreher's.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.

“Bring a portable fan if you are staying in the summer - so so hot. Rent a towel if you don't have room in your bag - only 400 HUF.”
