Hostels are cheap in Budapest. You can get a hostel bed for around 4,500 HUF per night. Alternatively, you can rent an Airbnb apartment. The average cost per night for a small apartment that sleeps four people is 25,000 HUF.

However, with a little research online, you can get better deals, especially if your dates are flexible and don’t travel in high season.

Over 30 million people visited Budapest in 2018 alone, and the numbers are rising every year. Especially in the summer months, but also throughout the year, there are crowds everywhere, especially around big tourist attractions, so be prepared to wait in line. Even if you can’t avoid the crowds, you can do some things to make your trip to Budapest a more pleasant experience.

You can avoid peak seasons, avoid traveling during rush hours, get up early in the morning to explore the city without the crowds, explore the suburbs once you’ve visited the must-see attractions at the city center. SAFETY Budapest is generally a very safe place for tourists. Some areas are better avoided by night, but they are usually not located near tourist attractions.

Typical for all major cities around the world, beware of pickpockets, especially around major attractions. Watch your valuables and use common sense. For emergency services, dial 112. NUMBER 5: FOR INTERNATIONAL TRAVELERS TRAVEL ADAPTERS If you’re coming from outside Europe or from the UK, you will probably need a special European travel adapter to charge your phone and other devices.

This is what THE Hungarian power plug looks like. We recommend purchasing a travel adapter before traveling to Budapest. In fact, it is worth buying a universal adapter so you can use it in other countries too. This video is sponsored by Ceptics, the number one choice for international travelers to and from the US when it comes to travel adapters.

Did you know that different adapters charge your phone, laptop and other devices at different speeds? Sometimes charging goes nowhere and when you’re traveling, you need your device to be ready to go fast. Ceptics just released their brand-new travel adapter designed to charge your devices more quickly.

We’ve used it on our trip to Budapest. With multiple attachments, it allows us to charge up to four devices at once, which is convenient, considering most hotel rooms only have a few outlets. Also, we can just bring the right attachment in a pouch. View Ceptics’s user-friendly website to find adapters that fit your needs.

We’ve also made a video about travel adapters and outlet types around the world. The link is in the description. LANGUAGE The language spoken in Budapest is Hungarian. CURRENCY Budapest uses Hungarian Forints. At the time of the making of this video, 1,000 HUF is worth approx. 3.34 USD or 2.97 EUR. Many places like restaurants and bars also take Euros, the currency used in most other European countries. The exchange rate is not great, of course.

Naturally, you will get your change back in Forints. While some hotels, stores, and restaurants in the city accept major credit cards like Visa or MasterCard, it is always wise to have some Forints in your wallet.

MONEY EXCHANGE AND ATMs The easiest way to get Forints is through ATMs. In Hungary, ATMs typically ask if you want to be charged in Forints or in your home currency. For better exchange rates and smaller fees, choose to be billed in Forints and to avoid EURO ATMs.
