Olivia Burden thinks…

"This place was like having your own apartment. It was great food my partner and I to have some privacy and quiet but with the convenience of social living and hostel life at your finger tips."

The price stated on the website is for 2 person occupancy but with the large pull out sofa bed there is optional space for 2 more guests at an extra fee of 4000huf each per night. Contact us at the time of booking to let us know if you are interested.

The hostel is called penthouse because it is on the lofty top of the fourth floor in an old 19th century building. Therefore there are 130 stairs with no elevator leading to the top floor. If this is an issue for you please contact us and we will recommend more appropriate accommodation for you.

Anyone wanting to stay for Christmas please note that we are closed for check ins from after 12:00pm on the 24th of December until the 26th of December. If you would like to book during this time please let us know

Take a left and you are on the swanky and upmarket restaurant street of Liszt Ferenc ter, both of which are broken up by the 'champs elysee' of Budapest, Andrassy.
