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... More

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... More

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.... More

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.

This hostel completely made our trip! It was the perfect balance between party and chill- joined with 3 other party hostels there was plenty of opportunity to go out with fellow travellers, yet as the quietest hostel it meant that you never had to worry if you wanted to sleep at a decent hour or have a lie in. Big... More

We stayed 3 nights at penthouse privates and we enjoyed a lot, the room was clean, they provide you towels and all the information you need. They organize a lot of night events around the pubs in the city but the hostel is calm and quiet. You can get to know people easily, is like sharing and apartment!

The Penthouse Privates is part of a group of party hostels in Budapest, which my daughter loves. I was traveling with her but as an older adult, had no interest in the party scene. The Penthouse Privates was the perfect option. It IS a penthouse with lots of steps up to it but the staff is immediately there to help... More
