Best hostel we've stayed in :) had such a nice stay and the staff were unbelievably helpful and friendly. With most hostels we've stayed in the atmophere hasn't been great and you just stay out all the time but at Lavender we actaully enjoyed just sitting abouy in the communal areas. Would come again :)


Lavender Circus is a very unusual and nice place with an excellent location (close to the underground station, bus and tram). Staff was very helpful, Good WiFi access. Aquarium in the bathroom is originally, you can calm down looking on fish and continue doing you job. But some rooms due to their location in the building have problems with ventilation.

Lavender Circus Hostel is located right in the heart of the city and within walking distance of everywhere. The staff were so friendly and couldn't do more to help. Not to mention that Budapest is the most beautiful city! Would 100% stay here again.

The location is brilliant and the hostel made a quirky and interesting change from other places we have been staying on our trip. If you are looking for a party hostel this isn't it but the atmosphere was lovely. The staff were great, some a bit more than others but generally the mixture of the welcome and maps etc, that we got on arrival, and the answers to our questions were very useful. I would definitely stay there again.


This is a fantastic, quirky and cool place to stay. Only problem was the temperature of my room facing the museum - it was far too hot all week with no air con.

For a younger crowd who can make it up the stairs I really would recommend this hostel. The staff are beyond helpful and friendly and will make you feel quite welcome. The facilities are interesting and fun, not boring whitewashed cubicles but rather a stylishly designed series of rooms that bleed artistic merit. It really is a lovely place to stay when in Budapest!


Great atmosphere, amazingly decorated. Lavender Circus is the epitome of hip and cool, whilst keeping a calm friendly atmosphere. Located perfectly for all the city sites. The security is great and the staff are beyond helpful. You'll be tipped off for all the big tourist sites but also recommended all kinds of pubs, cafes, restaurants, clubs etc. Budapest is amazing and this Hostel will make your trip unforgettable.


pros; the Hostel was very unique and really nice inside, very clean, good location, helpful staff. cons: the shared bathrooms weren't great, the one near our room was dark and the shower head wasn't hung up so you had to hold it yourself which was a bit annoying, & also when we were there it was very hot and there was no air conditioning or even a fan which made sleeping a bit uncomfortable.
