What do you want in the show? Are we moving to fast, or is it all too basic? What do you like what do you not like? More on money or more on travel?

In this Budapest Guide Podcast episode:

We explore Budapest’s Street art scene and the ruin bars of district 7 (including the famous “Szimpla Kert”). We stay at Retox and discover what it’s like to stay or work at a party hostel – mental! Plus we eat a traditional Hungarian 2 course lunch for only 3 euros.

We discuss:

  • Budapest’s Ruin Bars
  • Street Art in Budapest
  • What it’s like to work in a party hostel
  • The unexpected American food revolution in Budapest
  • Goulash and how to find a 3 Euro, 2 course lunch menu
