Loved this hostel. Maddy and Hawaii are lovely and would bend over backwards to help you in any way. The hostel is beautiful and clean with excellent kitchen and computer/ printing facilities. Extremely clean. A good option for two people looking for a nice place to stay in the centre of the city. It's very good as it's a sister hostel of the big party hostels and every day they have so much on offer and things to do. But don't stay here if you want a crazy buzzy place! But we loved it!!


What a lovely, chilled out home from home. It's very private with all beds in their own room and is more like a hotel. With an amazing kitchen and living area. But with the added bonus of being linked to a party hostel if you want to join in on their events.


The host is everything here, Hawaii goes above and beyond in her job giving you recommendations for food/bars, information on the best tours and how to get to meeting points. Our bedroom with balcony was huge - more than we expected, same with the bathroom. Location is great, close to lots of yummy food and tour meeting points. I Stay on a weekend so you can do the ruin bar crawl and boat party. This place will be packed in Summer, we were sometimes the only guests during the week.

Great Hostel…Hawai, who runs the spot does a great job of making you feel welcomed and at home as soon as you walk through the door. This hostel was very clean and in a pretty good location within walking distance to everything. The only negative is those steps but you get used to it, and they provide a good workout. I would definitely stay here again as the hostel was quiet at night to provide a good night's sleep which is something I was looking for!


Enjoyed our stay

We had a fantastic stay at Penthouse Privates! The manager is friendly, helpful and always makes herself available to help you plan your days. The hostel joins onto other hostels and every night has different opportunities to do different things and meet new people. The hostel offers opportunities to do and see things in Budapest that you would otherwise never hear off. Would highly recommend!
