The hostel is centrally located but not well signposted from the road. It's also up 3 flights of stairs so poss not great if you have mobility issues. It's just written as lavender on the gate too but relatively easy to find. The hostel itself is very quirky and well decorated. The staff were very friendly and gave us loads... More

We stayed for a week with a few friends over Easter holidays. Great location and rooms. We rented the apartment (with it's own kitchen) and another room. Worked great for two couples travelling together. The staff were super friendly and helpful. I actually think it's the best hostel I've ever stayed at :)

The staff is very helpful, gave us a welcome drink and directions to all kinds of good places to have fun and to eat. The hostel is next to the tram and metro. The rooms are very beautiful, feels like home! Loved the time there

Stayed here last week, when we got here it was a shame we were only staying one night. It was a lovely hostel very quirky with lovely helpful staff. We had an apartment which was very comfortable and decorated nicely with paintings on the walls. Old fashioned building with lots of charm. Definitely better than other hostels I have stayed...

A really great hostel that has friendly, helpful staff. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and comfortable - with the added draw of a hippie, artistic vibe. It's up a few flights of stairs, so if you're lugging suitcases - it could take you a few trips - but once you're upstairs, you're set! Free tea, wifi + adapters... More

I've never stayed in a hostel before so I didn't really know what to expect beforehand but I loved this place! The staff were so kind. On one of the nights people staying in the hostel were invited to have dinner together :) I found it a really social place to stay but at the same time nice and quiet.... More

It was way more than I had expected. The atmosphere, the layout and rooms were awesome. Everyone from the staff were very nice, helpful and gave great sightseeing tips. If it had breakfast, it would have been absolutely perfect value for money, but that really is not an issue in Budapest with so many cafes and cheap options. Would surely... More

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
