Budapest’s first hostel, the Back Pack Guesthouse, has added two floors to its colourfully painted suburban ‘villa’ in south Buda and been reborn as Shantee House. It's all good and the fun (and sleeping bodies in high season) still spills out into a lovely landscaped garden, with hammocks, a yurt and a gazebo. Two of the five doubles are en suite.

9. MUSEUMS & ARCHITECTURE

The Chain Bridge is one of the most well known landmarks of Budapest. The bridge straddles the Danube between Roosevelt tér on the Pest side and Clark Ádám tér in Buda.

Worth a walk across at night, all lit-up in its glory, the bridge provides great spots for taking photos of Castle Hill sitting above on Buda side and the Parliament on Pest, with the Danube river flowing below.

While somber but well worth a visit is the House of Terror. The former Headquarter of the ÁVH Secret Service, it has a permanent exhibition Illustrating the grim decades of Nazi and Communist repression.

Walking up Andrássy út, between the House of Terror and Hero Square, you will pass many grand, World Heritage-listed, 19th century buildings.

Millennium Underground Train (M2 yellow line), was the first of its kind on the European continent. Its stations have preserved the original layout from 130 years ago, with each station presenting the most important buildings of the Era.

The Avenue ends at Heros Square, where the Museum of Fine Arts offers the world-famous Spanish collection and the opposite building of the Arts Hall featuring temporary exhibitions of contemporary arts.

Tickets to most Budapest museums are cheap, varying between 800-1500 HUF (3-4 Euro) per adult.
