We were given a tip from a local to come visit this boat if we want a good night out. it was a Tuesday night and we decided to rock up, we found out there was going to be a band on so thought why not. This wasn't just any band the A38 has a house band and they invite... More

Went to A38 last night and saw a band called Random Trip who were very good! There was a great atmosphere but we all had hangovers this morning. I think this band play regularly there, go see them, a fantastic experience!

After experiencing the Szimpla Kert bar and others in town, we decided to give 'the best bar in the world' a go. After 2 metros, tram and a walk we got there (to the east side of the centre of town, and on the north bank of the river). OK, it wasn't a Saturday - but it was high season... More

Reading all the reviews and hype surrounding this place, one would have expected a pretty awesome club. After we arrived, I was pretty underwhelmed with the typical backpacker dive, most of all the boat is hardly as big as I was expecting. Hungarian only sections pretty much show that the locals avoid the place, and if they end up there... More

the a38 is unique, it doesn;t matter whether you are there for a gig, a party or just a casual few drinks on the top deck and terrace, you will always have a good time. the sound in the hull is intimidating and it's a special moment when you are in a gig so wild you feel the boat shake.... More

It basicly is a disco on a boat, it was pretty epic! It is based on a houseboat in the Donau which separates Buda and Pest. We had to walk quite a while but its worth it!

Sure, it's on a boat moored on the Danube, but you can see the same sights for free when off the ship. Drinks are much pricier than any other bar in Budapest, music is just so so, and you may have to pay cover if there's an act you didn't know about that night.

I never write reviews. Always read but can never be bothered to write one. This place got my back up so felt I had to. It's voted best bar in the world! What a joke I have been to better church services and I don't go to church. Worst we was rip off at the bar. i asked what was... More
