I really cannot praise this place enough. My friend and I were staying for a long weekend and we wanted nights out, clubs and meeting people, while still getting a good nights sleep. The place: Ok, yes it's at the top of a few flights of stairs but I really can't call it a negative as this is such a... More

Right in the center of Budapest next to the district VII well known part of city for parties so nothing is far. Street is full of cheap bars where you can order a pint of beer for one euro. Hostel is very clean and hosts are great. Salty is one of the most amazing hosts I ever stumble upon.

First off, as the other reviews say. The stairs suck! Other than that, this place is great. We stayed in a room with a balcony and a shared bathroom. For the most part, no one was in the adjoining room so we had our own private little nook/bathroom. The room was simple but nice and spacious. The hostel itself is... More

Absolutely brilliant hostel. If your not interested in staying in a noisy dirty party hostel but still want to go out and party but then come home to peace and quiet this is the place for you. The staff were amazingly helpful with all aspects of our stay. They are extremely knowledgable with all the fun activities, bars and food... More

I stayed here with my husband. This hostel is in a great location, close to the ruins bars and easy walking access the all of the tourist attractions. There are heaps of diverse places to eat in the area too. This is a very small hostel which is linked to the bigger party hostels. It was great to have the... More

Fellow Travelers, With Penthouse Privates being part of the Budapest Party Hostels, you meet so many people while you stay there, and you have the luxury of a comfortable environment while you rest. It's the most tame of all the BPH locations and has the most incredible staff! So much so, that I stayed there for a second time (two... More

I had an amazing stay at Penthouse Privates. I stayed over new years where I got to party with everyone and I got to stumble back to a beautiful, clean, spacious private room... What could be any better?

Would highly recommend this hostel to any couples/solo travelers looking to get the perfect blend of partying and sleeping! It is a sister hostel to the main party hostels of Budapest so there is always plenty to do and you feel very welcomed to join in the activities. Upon arrival we were greeted by Salty, who was very friendly and... More

The hostel is good, the location even better. The hostel had a nice atmosphere but was very quiet the three nights we stayed there. They had a computer and printer we could use as much as we wanted. We had a private room with ensuite. Very clean and cozy. Free coffe, tea, milk and butter. The girl that was there... More

A great hostel in the heart of Budapest, Penthouse Privates (despite it's suspicious name) is a great spot for anyone in Budapest. It has a great location and it is up five flights of stairs which is good exercise in my opinion. Hawaii will greet you upon arrival and give you an extremely detailed overview of the hostel and budapest... More
