Where should I stay in Budapest?

I was thinking about taking a trip to Budapest in October. I was wondering about where you would recommend me to stay? I want to experience the culture of the city, and I may not have to stay in the center of the town.

Public transport of Budapest is very good, so you can easily reach the city centre from the surrounding districts. Budapest is divided by the Duna river into Buda and Pest. Buda is more calm, with green zones, parks, hills. In Pest you can find more life, but its more dirty and loud. I would prefer staying in Buda with a metro station nearby.

Hi there!
I can recommend you 2 hostels in particular depending on what preferences do you have.
The first one is the Animation City Hostel - it is located in the heart of the city - Vaci utca. Pretty much nice and comfortable place. I would even say quiet. Before I came to live in Hungary I stayed there 2 times. After that my husband visited it as well.
The other one which I could recommend is the Photography Hostel which is still in the central part but not in the overcrowded area. Right next to it passes the tram 4/6 with which you can get to any point of the city center. The tram makes connection with Metro 1, Metro 3, and 4 (regarding 2 I'm not pretty much sure, so I won't say anything about it). Next to the hostel there is a lovely restaurant - OINOS WineBar.
Hope this information would be useful for you :))))

Hi Marie, I clicked on your link but I can't find your listing.
Please advise
In my opinion, the best areas to stay are within districts V-VII with VII being probably my favorite.
