“Amazing location and staff in the center of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Not only are the privates brand new, spotless and off the main street in the city, the staff who works there is absolutely amazing and ready to help you with anything you need. Everyone who stays with the Budapest Party Hostels is immediately part of their family, so whether you want to explore museums or rage every night, they will help point you in the right direction. The kitchen is very convenient, bathrooms are cleaned daily with very hot showers, towels and sheets provided, and daily updates on activities in the city are posted each morning. We loved staying with Hawaii and her team, and can't wait to come back. Especially for the 200Huf pizza place right across the street! Thank you Penthouse Privates :)

I stayed here with my girlfriend for a couple weeks and loved every second of it! The staff is very friendly and you get tons of personal attention on what to do during your stay in town. The location is awesome- across the street from the best pizza in town, and minutes away from the world-famous ruin pubs. The rooms themselves are clean, comfortable and we appreciated the shelves where we could put our stuff. The hang out room is comfy with a bunch of leather couches, and they even had a flat screen with a great selection of DVDs- not that we had the time to watch too many!

When you want to party, the staff hooks you up with the best backpacker parties in town. When you want to sleep, the rooms are dark and quiet. The best of both worlds.

Overall a great place, and I'll definitely stay again on our next visit:)

Room Tip: Didn't see a bad room in the house!

Great location, good facilities, hot showers, nice and cost during the day and amazing to have the option to go out with all the hostels in the chain at night. Hawaii was more than hospitable and knowledgeable about the city.

The privates were very clean and tidy. The privates are in the city centre, and are near a great late night pizza place that charges 200HuF per slice.
The staff here are great, and can show you a tonne of places to check out in the city.
There is also the option of going on nightly parties with the Budapest Party Hostels group, which ensure that you'll have a hectic alcohol-fueled night that you wish you could remember, but definitely will not.
The only negative aspect that I can add to this review is that there is no lift, and a lot of stairs.
But hey, everyone needs a little exercise each day so what a great start.
All in all, stay here, it's great.

A shout out to Hawaii, for being a nem brother.
