MONDAYS, TUESDAYS, WEDNESDAYS THE CHEAPEST DORM BEDS IN TOWN!!!!! Okay you've read the competitions blurb, so why choose the Red Bus? Our rating's not the highest, our staff not the hippest, nor rooms the funkiest.

The hostel is situated in the absolute heart of the City, in a beautiful typically Budapest courtyard building. The staff are all local Hungarians, and all though not monks or puritans they do agree that 99% of our guests don't want to be awoken from their peaceful slumber by stampeding drunks..
Prices are per person per night.
