our room was decorated incredibly, you can even buy a postcard with a picture of it! considering our room faced the main road, and the window was left open all the time we really didn't struggle with sleeping, as the rest of the hostel was so tranquil. the view opposite was of the national museum. The staff were all so...

Loved everything about this hostel. Beautiful, nice design, incredible ensuite and very close to everything you want to see in Budapest. Definitely recommended. The staff was very nice with us and the value for money is also a plus!

Our private room was brilliantly furnished with a comfortable bed as well as ample room for...

As long as you don't mind climbing stairs (we don't) this has to be one of the loveliest little hostels I've ever stayed in. Friendly staff, cute communal area and perfectly placed to get wherever you want to go.

We visited in December 2014 as part of a trip to European Christmas markets and Budapest was by far our favourite - and this definitely had something to do with the Lavender Circus! The big welcome you get when you arrive is not something you get in every hostel and we really appreciated it. We were offered a complimentary shot...

As soon as myself and my boyfriend arrived we were given a shot of the local fruity spirits. We were sat down by a lovely girl and talked through everything about the hostel and about the shops in the surrounding area. She gave us a little map with instructions on how to get to each tourist attraction and it was...

Traffic noise on second floor meant we had very little sleep, especially the tram noise in the quieter hours, thin strip of material over window did not help. And I live on a busy road in London and am hard of hearing. Otherwise fine but holiday ruined by very little sleep.

Firstly, the location of this hostel is great. It is walking distance to most things and on the edge of a really cool district. The staff are really helpful and it is staffed for long hours so there is pretty much always someone to help you when you need it. The value for money is amazing - it's cheap, especially...

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
