GB trailed 22-14 at the end of the first quarter before holding their opponents to just two points in the second to turn things around for a 24-26 half-time advantage.
However, Hungary hit back in the third with an 18-13 quarter to lead 42-39 before GB cut the gap to a single point with five minutes to go.
GB made a pivotal run to take control down the stretch and held on for their second win of the summer.
GB U20s play a second game against Hungary tomorrow before their Division B campaign gets underway on Friday.
