I searched the website about the best place to stay in Budapest and surprisingly Lavender Circus is the one of best listed on it. I stayed and felt the environment is comfortable. I found the hostel has very unique vintage design and decoration especially the room. I booked a private en-suite room and price is cheap, most importantly is the... More

My friend and I recently stayed here for 3 nights and it was just amazing! On the Friday when we arrived they had made dinner for the guests, which was the nicest stew I've had in a long time. As they were hosting a dinner party for the guests, we met everyone, which was really nice. The hostel its self... More

This is my favourite hostel I have ever visited. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a very helpful staff member who made us coffee and took us through a map of the city. The hostel is small so there isn't as big of a crowd as other hostels, but the environment is one of a kind. A kitschy decor makes... More

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a 4 night stay at Lavender Circus. We loved the art interior, there was certainly plenty to look at! We had an en-suite room and were pleasantly surprised upon arrival to find we had a small kitchen area in our room aswell. The room was clean and warm with a great with... More

We stayed 3 nights and the staff there was super nice (I particularly remember the girl with short hair). When we arrived we were welcomed with a palinka shot and then the girl showed us all the must-see attractions on the map they gave us for free. The room was huge, clean and warm and we had great views to... More

You simply must stay in this place if you are looking for incredible value with a fantastic, boho-artsy interior: proof that cheap does not have to be soul-less and decrepit. Nesting on the third floor of a majestic building in front of the National Museum is the Lavender Circus. Be prepared to be breathless from the staircase, and take a... More

I stayed at Lavender Circus during my InterRail trip in the summer. The location was great, we visited everywhere in the city by foot (though I am happy walking a lot). Despite our early arrival we were greeted with tea and a really useful introduction to the city. The lady provided us with fun maps and had highlighted all the... More

Once we had climbed the 108 steps to reception we enjoyed the hostel. We were pleased to be on the second floor, 30 less steps!! We had an ensuite room with our own kitchen, although the fridge didn't work, we were self sufficient. Our only negative was the road noise, as we were facing the street, luckily we had ear... More

We stayed at a new apartment, very comfortable, but with some problems with the boiler. We were offered different solutions until the problem was solved (they were quick) and finally offered a discount when we checked out. Really nice people working behind the counter and a really relaxed atmosphere in a perfect location to explore the city. The wifi works... More
