Check out before 12.00

Please ensure that the arrival time you have stated is correct so that we can be sure to have someone at the hostel to greet you as the reception is not 24hours. Be sure to confirm your arrival time via email (penthouseprivates@gmail.com) upon completion of your booking. If you at any point need to change your arrival time please let us know either by email or give us a call at 0036706062796.

Do not hail a cab in the city ever, if you need a taxi please call a reputable taxi firm.

If you have a UK or Canadian bank card you may experience problems getting cash out, don't panic, but wait until you get to an OTP bank where you should be fine.

A quick reminder: 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. Call up when you arrive (buzzer #27) and let us know if you would like some help with your luggage! No wheelchair access.

Liked: 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.

Disliked: No staff on premises 24\\7 so there's no control over the noise level in the middle of the night.

Liked: The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. They always have really fun events going on and make themselves available to hang out or show you around. Definitely a great place to stay for people looking for a relaxed/chell vibe or atmoshphere.The room was really spacious, warm, and bright and it had a nice view. The location can't be beat-many restaurants, bars, and tourisitc sites all around. The hike up the stairs wasn't that bad either.

Disliked: The shower was a little bit finnicky-the water pressure was kind of strong and the temperature turned from hot to cold sometimes. Also, the walls are pretty thin and you can definitely hear people talking or going up/down the stairs if they're not being quiet, but there wasn't an overwhelming amount of people staying there because the hostel is of modest size (in terms of number of guests.)

Liked: Best staff ever! I went to budapest alone thanks to Penthouse Privates staff I've made a lot of friends. They don't treat you like a customer or a guest but more as a friend.Also good location. In the middle of the city. Walking distance to both the city park and Chain Bridge area. Very safe and quiet.They offer many types of activities for both day and night in case you're not sure about what to do in Budapest.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Everything was very good. The staff is worried too much about the stairs, these were not a problem.

Disliked: Some guests were a bit noisy, listening to the music or watching movies. They stopped at the fist moment we asked them to. The walls are thin and let the noise spread.

Liked: feels more like staying with a friend or couch surfing. is situated in big house, where several families living in. therefore quiet and relaxing. it's not for party ppl, but the hostel itself offers many party options together with other hostels. loved the location! easy to get around, with plenty of bars and restaurants. stairs aren't as bad as everyone says.

Disliked: nothing
