Budapest July 2018 update 2 weeks
Phone: http://prepaid-data-sim-card.wikia.com/wiki/Hungary
I'll note roaming here blows. My phone is frequently unworkable outside of google maps when out. Get a local sim and don't rely on the EU roaming law to have data here.

Transportation: Metro, tram, bus. At night the 4-6 trams run in a circle around the inner core in a semi circle. There's also night buses but most of the distances are walkable unless you are in the boonies. The taxis are actually ok, I had no horror stories, just be sure to take the yellow licensed cabs(not freelancer on the side). There's a express bus that runs from the airport into the city center, and if you got in by train both stations are pretty much city center as well.

Food: Food isn't all that cheap here unless you want to survive on pizza and langos(fried bread). To get meat protein I was paying about 8-10 USD per meal. Not bad but not great either.

Neighbourhoods: District 5, 6 or 7 is a good bet. District 7 south of ersezbet will be the closest to the main party area. District 5 close to the chain bridge/parliament isn't bad either.

Gym: I'd recommend Westfit gym at Jokal utca 15. It's the best one I went to, it doesn't look like a Soviet gym from the 70s. Also there's a restaurant right across the street when you walk out at Jokal utca 20 with decent prices for the post workout meal.

Touristy shit: Walk the chain bridge at night, this I recommend. Else its the usual shit.

Nightlife/clubs: Sat night:
Szimpla: Went at midnight. Looked at lineup. Walked away. Came back at 3am and walked right in. Mostly groups, or maybe it was just too late in the night for the smaller sets of girls to be apparent. It's much more of a social hangout and chill scene(think a bar). Ratios were decent. For someone who went earlier, I feel damage could be done here.

Doboz: At 1am walked right in. 2 rooms, separated by a courtyard. 1 room is EDM/remixes, other is rap/hiphop. Decent ratios, but I feel it's a place to roll into as a group, not solo. Wasn't feeling it, it felt very local so left after a drink.

Instant/Larm/Fogos: These 3 are connected but the lineup for Fogos and Instant were ridiculous. I didn't even know Larm existed but was talking to 2 dudes from the UK who were looking for it and the DJ set. Had a cover so I paid that and walked right in.

Instant is your typical club playing house, EDM with a dancefloor. Girls dancing, guys attempting to crack in. Bread and butter. Decent ratios 60/40 guys. Sets of 2-3 girls availble.

Larm is techno or at least it was on that night, with a good sound system. Think fog, lasers, and dark rooms and pounding beats. Still I saw potential, made a move on a 6 because she was dancing into me, found out she's German and passed. Saw a MILF get hooked by some dude when she was getting ignored most of the night. The niche is rave girls.

Fogas is a open courtyard with 1 room in the back playing rap/hiphop and a dungeon playing rock. This is pretty much Szimpla again. 70/30 guys. Competition is tough here.

Thurs night:
BOB: To whoever said BOB is dead, I can't agree. It was packed and talent was pretty high. An older crowd as mentioned but most of the older guys with tables and bottles weren't killing it. It was actually the dudes roaming, some of which were in shorts. I'll note though, while receptive I saw a lot of dudes grind up/dance and then the girls would bounce.

Otkert: Pretty much next to BOB this crowd leans younger and talent is high. However, competition is tough here. No love for the brothers here, maybe it was just the night. This place gets packed, the line to get in is bad but not Instant bad. Same as BOB, the girls would let guys in then shut them out.

Aether: Was pretty dead when I went inside(3am). Walked past it earlier, it wasn't bad then but I opened 2 blondes from Germany outside(7, 6) and tried to work something for 30 mins but no go. Doubled back and nothing, maybe 20% full then.

Fri night:
Hello baby: Was there at 130am, dead. 20% full, 80/20 guys. Downed my drink and left.

Corvin Club: They are closed due to the govt.

Now here's where the night gets interesting, met 2 girls trying to get into Corvin and bounced with them to Doboz. Hung with them and was working it, grinding and making out with the shorter one with bigger tits(6), while the taller one(7) was being more chill. Eventually was talking to some French girls, that wasn't happening, but was trying to venue change when I lost the 2 girls from earlier. Ended up at Instant because where else, and called it a night after an hour there. Surprising how many guys actually do leave empty handed after being at Instant for a few nights. Some dudes will literally stand outside with shirts off, and....nothing.

Hungarian women: I find they are binary, either hot or cold. If they don't like you, you will know immediately. Open aggressively and don't play reserved. Coming from Berlin, it took me awhile to adjust.

Hungarian men: The Hungarian dudes that are put together are very well put together. Most are chill though.

Hostels: I made sure to get the party hostel experience in and it's not bad. Not as crazy as one would think, there was no puking all over, people passed out everywhere and orgies going on but there were all 3 of the above in some capacity. Yours truly got a blonde 6 from the UK. There were some 8+ and most girls are DTF(party hostel). Do it at least once, just google budapest party hostels and go for the craziest you can get.

Party hostels are great to meet people, I'd actually suggest you start a city with the hostel then once you get a social circle from the hostel going, switch to an Airbnb. I did it the other way around, learn from my mistakes.

Summary: Cheap rent. Decent food. Good nightlife. I can see why so many go to Budapest and why it is pretty heavily talked about, there's something about Hungarian women. I can't quite put my finger on it. And then there's the tourists. Overall not bad, definitely go here at least once but I found the crazy level wasn't as high as it was hyped up to be.

Still here for 2 more nights, hit me up if you want to grab a drink.

Good stuff. Bob and yellow were excellent last time I went. Would never go to szimpla. been there done that years ago. Would rather get blown out violently by slutty future Hungarian pornstars than pick up backpackers.

I second that sentiment, except replace the blown out part with blown.

I think staying in a hostel will cockblock you since you can't invite the girl to your place except if she is already DTF, she may invite you to her place or she may do some crazy things with you...
