Everything was so much cheaper than home. Even food was 1/2 of the price.Metro-month card was 1/10 of the price in Norway, and the cafe/nightlife was ca. 1/4 of the Norwegian prices...I really felt extreamly rich.

Do get the deposit back when you leave...or you will never see it again. Do not listen for "I'll send you the deposit when I get the TLF - and EL-bill. This kind of bill you get when you call there. It's done in one minute.

Be cautious with international bank transactions denominated in HUF, my home bank charged me 20EUR and also the receiving Hungarian Bank charged me 20EUR for a transaction of 40000HUF = 160EUR, do only EUR denominated transactions, then banks are not allowed to charge anything

Food, booze, and nightlife in general are a third of the price as in the US, while housing is also slightly cheaper. Phones are definitely more expensive, whether you have a land line or a cell phone.

I spend less at home because I live w/ my parents, but overall the prices are lower, especially for alcohol and cigarettes. But these prices are rising fast since Hungary joined the EU.

If you have a Canadian bank account, note that every time you take out cash, you'll be charged 5$ CAD no matter what amount you withdraw. So take out as much as possible each time.
