“Exellent place to stay”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

The location is exellent. You can just walk to the center of the city. The staff is really friendly and helpful in every situation. The breakfast is nice and the clearness of the whole hostel is kept on a high level. It was a very good experience for me, gonna stay there next time while in Armenia :)

The best hostel experience that I have had before! Here,cleanliness is on the highest level. The staff is really helpful and warm. Hmm... About location, very convenient to go somewhere,as it is in the center of the city. Mostly,I liked the view from the balcony and I really miss it.

Room Tip: I stayed in the room Yasaman (liliac),very quiet room.

This was the most disapointing place we stayed: the staff was unfriendly and unhelpful. The day trip they "organised" for us was a catastrophy. The breakfast they served was barely breakfast at all ( the bread and jam were stale..), the beds were torture with the springs comming out of the mattress ( which is super dangerous). There was no internet and no AC . All together, I really hated it and would stronly advise people to stay away

Room Tip: the abricot room is definitely not a comfortable room to stay in. Not only was is noisy ( the washin...

Dear Guest (but not sure that Penthouse Hostel's one).
Thank you for spend your time writing a bed review about us but it seems you have confused the hostel you are writing about!
The fact is that we have not and we never had since our opening the DAY TRIP (that you qualify as a "catastrophe"). We just never... never organized the trips like this and in any of previous and later reviews one can not find any mention of it.
So, we guess that or you have confused the hostel (sometimes it happens) or it is a FAKE bed review which is a rude violation of rules of Tripadvisor.
We would like our other guest understand that this review is a case of misunderstanding or of sabotage. Also we would like to stress that we do our best for all our guests be happy in Penthouse Hostel!

Voted Hostelworld's best hostel in Armenia in 2013, The Penthouse hostel is a wonderful hostel located to the north of the city with a fantastic view of Mount Ararat and Yerevan. It is conveniently situated close to the Cascades Art museum which is a great attraction of Yerevan and is only 10 minutes walk away from the Republic Square. The hostel has a cosy feel to it with a nice communal area and a small kitchen. The staff are extremely friendly and courteous and can provide advice on tours and transportation to the local area. Breakfast is included in the price and tea and coffee are freely available throughout the day. Whilst the dormitory is relatively small, it has adequate space for a few nights. The hostel is regularly cleaned and linen and towels are provided free of charge. Wi-fi is also available free of charge and can be accessed from all of the rooms. I would certainly recommend The Penthouse Hostel, and in particular the reception staff who make you feel extremely welcome and of course the wonderful view of Mount Ararat from the hostel's balcony.

The best thing about this place is its location that you access to important part of the city even by walking. The staff especially Catherine are very nice.the break fast is too small too.You can find this place at night easily.

(+)Staff of this hostel was very, very nice and helpful, localisation good, breakfast good.
(-) During our 6 nights stay the room was not cleaned (even once), there was one bathroom for 3 rooms, it was not the problem (the price was very low) but there was horrible smell from the bathroom (the bathroom was cleaned so i think it was caused by the pipes and there was not a window inside the bathroom so the smell was getting out into the hall, we had to close the doors to our room because the smell was really teriible).
(+) Przemila obsluga, bardzo pomocna, Dobre sniadania, dobra lokalizacja.
Wyposazenie bardzo skromne, pokoj nie był sprzatany. Niestety straszny zapach z lazienki (jedna na 3 pokoje), prawdopodobnie zapach wydobywał się z rur, nie od zniesienia.
