I just arrived into budapest this week. I will be staying for 3 years at least while my wife study for her PhD. We are a young couple from Costa RICA.
Finding anew apartment have been really hard. We have a tight budget and it seems people charge large amounts to foreigners and the flats we have seen are not in really good shape.
However we have seen one that we liked and it's what we need. Problem is location. I was told is not really a safe area for a woman to come back late by herself and of course is a serious concern. The location is Muranyi utca 46. I was adeviced to avoid it because it's close to the train station which is not a good area.
My wife will be by herself some months a year and we need some insight information.
