Possibly the nicest hostel I've ever stayed in. Very handy and easy to find/direct taxis to when drunk as it's directly opposite the National Museum. Our room was huge and fabulously done out, as is the whole hostel - a massive old building with lots of quirky knick knacks and I wanted to steal ALL the amazing lampshades!!! In spite of that, the thing that really makes this hostel so outstanding (I'm repeating what other reviewers have said,I know) is the AMAZING staff. Really lovely, interesting, helpful, friendly and well travelled people, who have stayed in many a hostel and are passionate about making guests feeling as at home as possible. They are very knowledgeable about the city itself and have some great recommendations of what to do and see, and can book you tickets for various things (they arranged an evening at the thermal baths for us - this is definitely a MUST if you're in Budapest!). Free wine/palinka on arrival and delicious strong coffee whenever you ask for it. The steps up to the hostel aren't for the faint hearted (it's on the 5th floor) but this is definitely a small price to pay!
Thank you so much everyone at Lavender Circus for making our stay in Budapest one to remember!
