IMPORTANT: for public transport, you need a ticket each time you get on a bus, tram or metro, even when you change lines. Tickets are sold at public transport stations, newsagent kiosks and some supermarkets. A single ride costs 350 Forint (about 1/2 Euro). Validate your ticket before you get on the vehicle.
The metro runs between 4:30 am and 11:20 pm.
++ From the AIRPORT ++
The best way to the hostel is the official airport shuttle bus, the 100E. It leaves every 30mins, from 0500 until 0030. You can take the 100E from outside the airport terminal. Take the bus to the ASTORIA stop, from here we are just a few minutes walk.
When you depart the bus you will be walking straight ahead, although you need to go underground through the Astoria metro station to cross the road. Exit at the right hand side, by taking EXIT B for KAROLY KORUT / DOHANY UTCA.
Continue following the main road straight for 200m, until you reach the corner with Dob utca on your right. Turn right onto Dob utca, and continue straight for 150m. At the crossroads of Dob utca and Rumbach Sebestyen, look for the small circular “Hostel One” sign. The hostel will be on the left corner.
You require a special 'airport shuttle bus ticket' to board the 100E. A single ticket costs 900 Forint (3 EUR). You can buy a ticket from the driver, but this takes longer and you need the exact cash (in Forints). Therefore we recommend getting the ticket from the machine inside the terminal, as you can pay on card and board the bus faster.
A taxi will set you back around 8000 - 9500 Forint (25 - 30 EUR). There are many fake taxis at the airport. To avoid these, be sure to join the official taxi queue, “Fo Taxi”. DO NOT get ushered away into a taxi other than a Fo Taxi.
We can arrange an airport transfer for 8000 Forint (or 25 EUR), this way a driver will be waiting for you at the airport. Please contact us if you would like this booked, we require at least 24 hours advance notice..

Here, we are surrounded by all of Budapest's best ruin bars, a 5 min walk from the great Basilica of Budapest, and a 2 min walk from DEAK station for the Subway, Bus and Tram.
