The idea of an entire building transformed in a club it's just amazing! Multiple scenes with different music and decor it's also great. The place seems to attract lots of young people and tourists!

Had fun here, place gets increasingly rowdy as it gets busier with increasingly drunk people after midnight. Much like an indoor playground for adults. Bring your ID, I didn't think to bring mine and had to bribe the bouncer which was a laugh but also quite expensive. Not specific to this venue, but what ever happened to indie/alternative music? Was... More

Nice bar and quirky decor. Had a band in the evening and watched from the balcony. Decent prices and fairly central!

One of the best places to visit in Budapest not only for a ruin pub. Great place, pretty affordable too and we had an amazing trap party (Jan 7th 2017). I am gonna stop by again next time I visit Budapest. Cant wait:)

The club consists of different rooms and in every room there is a different music style. The rooms are connected by small alleys which makes it exciting to walk around. Absolutely one of the best clubs I have been!

Instant is a must-see if you are after quirky, fun, interesting and cool bars (second only to Szimpla Kert). There are multiple floors with different music/vibes (downstairs is more dancey and crowded whereas upstairs is more chilled but also packed) and within them different rooms. We were lucky to find a room for the 5 of us where we could... More

The interior of this ruin bar is incredible, you have to see it to believe it. It's also so sprawlingly large that you'll always find somewhere to sit, however busy it is. As a mid-30s English couple we were the oldest there, but found a friendly welcome and great staff.
