I have never been so thankful for such an amazing place and amazing people. Whether you are looking for something quiet and quaint or people to show you the nightlife and parties this is the place to stay. Yes their are stairs, but they are definitely worth it! Loved the staff, loved the rooms, and loved the activities that they...

My first time ever staying in a hostel and what an amazing experience. The staff were so welcoming and couldn't help us out enough. The hostel itself was lovely and had everything we needed to make it an enjoyable stay! Perfect location for bars and restaurants and most tourist places in walking distance. Would highly recommend and return! 😊

Penthouse was the perfect place for me! It's totally worth the trek up the stairs! The space is clean, beds comfy, kitchen is nicely equipped, and above all the staff are superb! Everyone was very welcoming and helpful! It was a nice quiet space to relax and unwind but there were also plenty of organized social outings with other hostels...

Go to Penthouse if you want to experience Budapest's amazing party scene, but want the option of some quiet time to yourself too. It's located just a short walk past the bars and clubs, so it's residentially peaceful without being inaccessible. The ladies staffing the place know their way around, and will make sure you don't miss out on anything,...

The hostel is in a prime location; walking distance from everything. My partner and I had the double room with en suite - the room was spacious, comfortable and met all of our needs. The staff are more than friendly and have come up with really cool ideas around the hostel to make your stay more efficient. There is a...

I ended up here last minute as my first hostel wasn't right. I stayed in a single room for the first night and a double afterwards as the singles were all booked. The rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. The staff were all really knowledgable about Budapest and had good recommendations for things to do and places to eat. There...

Penthouse Privates it is an appartment , not an hostel or an hotel. You will have your own room and you will share the toilet with the guys of other rooms (something like 2 or 3 persons), thus services are usually clean and not busy ! You can use the kitchen, there is all the stuff you need for cook...

Love this hostel and have stayed multiple times for that reason! The staff are all so lovely and well informed about the city, always willing to go the extra mile for you. Very central to everything, and the tram is so close if you don't want to walk. There are loads of great food options just right outside the doorstep....

Great location, shared bath, very clean, everything you'd need. Five flights of stairs might be a problem for some. Very supportive staff, lovely little balcony, walking distance to pretty much everything.
