About us[edit]

H.A.C.K. is the first hackerspace in Hungary, operating since February 2009. In December 2009 we moved into a flat on the first floor of Fogasház, and in April 2012 we moved into a basement which is located in the inner city of Budapest, near a major traffic junction (Kálvin tér).



We've started a series of smaller camps, the first was CampZer0 in 2013, followed by Camp++ in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. A similar event will take place in the summer of 2019 called Camp++ 0x7e3 (TBA).


Just as hackerspaces in general are meeting points in space, OpenNights are meeting points in time, so that hackers who want to join the hackerspace or just look around can meet members who are eager to help newcomers. Since February 2017, it's done on the second Wednesday of each month, the space opens around 19:00 and there's no fixed schedule.

  • Lockpicking workshop at 19.00 on the last Thursday every month

Ham radio[edit]

Our callsign is HA5KBP (HACKBP with a 5 instead of C), and we're famous for our SSTV beacon. We also have connectivity to HAMNET, and we love SDRs.

Connection with neighbouring hackerspaces[edit]

We have contact with Hackerspace Szeged, and are open to such contribution with others as well.

Some of our members regularly attend Metalab's various events, such as NinjaCon and Stadtflucht. We participate in the European cross-border hacking community, and maintain friendship with the Progressbar in Slovakia. We've also had visitors (among others) from Syn2cat, Brmlab and Kiberpipa.
