My place is literally in the heart of the active and cultural most central center, the Jewish Quarter. Everything you will experience is on and around my street! You’ll love it because of the myriads of bars, ruin pubs, restaurants and museums within just seconds, and because the room is very quiet and comfy, the flat is spacious and well equipped, and my tips on a great time exploring Budapest day & night for a relaxed, mainstream or off-the-beaten track experience are absolutely spot on! :)
This very comfortable bedroom with a very comfortable double bed has a view to the inner courtyard so it's a really quiet little resting zone tucked away from the tumultuous busy streets where the nightlife is basically thriving day and night non-stop.
The room is really for everyone. Whether you are a lone wolf/mistress, a business man/woman, or a couple on an extended date, regardless of your background, country of origin, gender affinity and religion, and you are looking for peace and quiet or crazy adventures, it really can make you feel right at home and relaxed in the middle of all your busy schedule exploring around.
The living room is our private place and will rarely be accessible, it will depend on whether we are home ourselves and having a little gathering or celebration.
Otherwise the apartment is spacious, ie the kitchen, corridor, bathroom so it never feels like we are stepping on each other.
You are free to use and access everything available in the kitchen, the dining room, the book shelves in the corridor, the bathroom and the toilet.
You also get towels, bathrobes, slippers, tissues, shampoo and a laundry basket.
I am available almost every day to assist you and give you pointers, I know this city and its key places and people very very well, mainly all the hidden gems tourists usually miss out on.
I might be away working though, but whenever possible, I'll be able to go out with you and show you around sometimes or just enjoy a drink or two or a meal at home around a cozy chat and a drink. :)
IMPORTANT, PLEASE TAKE NOTE: Check-in time is flexible but always subject to change, depending on our availability or your arrival, therefore subject to discussion prior to arrival, always.
Do not forget we are private people who share their private space to other private people and who accommodate to them the best they CAN, we are NOT a hotel, this is NOT a business, it's exactly like how AirBnB was originally created. Please do not have high standard levels of expectation, just accept it's a very comfortable, clean, spacious and very friendly place and atmosphere and you won't get disappointed.
Check-out time is as early as you can, say by 11 am. If your next trip is later that day you can of course leave your bags in the corridor, take your keys and come back for your bags later, just as long as you give us enough time and space to clean the room.
You can of course drop off your bags early in the morning and visit town, provided that there is someone in the flat to let you in, either me or my girlfriend. Otherwise please use the baggage locker facilities at the Train Stations, they're close to the flat and they are cheap.
When you arrive at the bus/train station or airport, DO NOT CHANGE more than what you need for getting into the city. The exchange rates there are a rip-off. Once you get to the city, I recommend 'Correct Change' places, there are a few in Budapest, the closest one to the center and my place is on 7th district, Erzsébet körút 41, at 5 minutes walk, and they basically have the best exchange rates in Budapest.

Hello there fellow discoverers, I'm new here, I have been on Couch Surfing for a decade now and I'm trying this new platform here for a change.
About me, sometimes I am a dedicated learner of linguistics and travels, or a passionate musician, or an enthusiastic photographer, or an avid supporter of fitness & nutrition, or a fervent follower of the religion of love and kindness.
But really, all I am, is a guy who occasionally break things, fixes things and makes new things, who strives whenever possible on giving something back and who always cherishes peace, passion and genuinity. :)
