One of My Favorite Cities | Budapest, Hungary

One of My Favorite Cities | Budapest, Hungary, Budapest, Hungary (B)

I am proud to say that this is my 200th post on my blog, and how appropriate that I can dedicate it to one of my favorite cities in the whole wide world – BUDAPEST!Just thinking about Budapest is enough to stir up the butterflies in my stomach and make me crave summertime in this city. I have so many fond memories of both trips I’ve taken here, and it’s definitely a place I’d consider living in for awhile. The nightlife is invigorating but not pretentious. The food scene is hot but the prices are unbeatable. The people are (mostly) friendly and welcoming to tourists. The city provides ample opportunities for sightseeing and relaxation. If you find yourself here, I cannot encourage you enough to spend time just wandering both the Buda and Pest sides of the city, allowing yourself to get completely lost in its streets.

In a city of a long list of party hostels and accommodation options, this spot was a gem! The staff was very friendly and inclusive, always organizing bar crawls and other fun events for guests while providing awesome recommendations for anything you could possibly want. I felt like I was friends with the people working there after just a few days. It’s in a central location, with a fully equipped kitchen, rooms with bathrooms nearby or ensuite and strong security – there are large lockers in the dorms to secure valuables. They also cook a communal meal every night – you can sign up for about $2 to have one of the staff cook your dinner! This is really a great spot for longer-term travelers. ......
