Animation City Hostel is located in the heart of Budapest. Great choise for a great price. Very clean and the staff are very friendly and willing to help. Not the best soundproof but who spends much time in the room when traveling?! Finally the sharing bathrooms, 2 for all the tenants but they are always clean.

After arriving at the hostel and realising its central location, helpful staff and good value for money, we extended our stay by two nights and the staff were happy to oblige. There is a lift to use to get to the 2nd floor also :) We were also allowed to wash and dry our clothes for free which is very... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
