The whole thing was very smooth and effortless and it was really handy to have Packed on whatsapp meaning you could as a question anytime and it was fairly informal too! I will definitely be recommending Packed to others!
They were so helpful and quick to respond. Provided me with a variety of options that were so nice and everything sorted.
Excellent service, very responsive and knowledgeable. Second time using these guys and all has gone well both times. Definitely recommend, see you again next year!
I approached Packed with a work project, searching for a Ski trip for 50 people. Right from the beginning the customer service was super, within a couple of days I had 2 trips that fitted the criteria perfectly. Due to the nature of my job I was unable to progress quickly and was back & forth with questions and requests, but nevertheless Ed Mellor continued to be professional, extremely helpful and patient. There was never a delay is receiving responses to my many emails.
Excellent response times, nice query too small and just made my life so much easier. Thank you!
Great team, great service. Will definitely use again.
I saw an advert on Instagram and thought it’d be worth a shout as I was having a hard time booking a ski trip for myself and 6 mates. From start to finish it was easy messaging through WhatsApp and they found brilliant deals for us. Would happily recommend to anyone thinking of using them. Ed was fantastic and super fast to reply and keep my up to date
Would absolutely recommend. It made booking a group holiday so much easier and completely removes the hassle. will definitely be using again.
I've booked with My Swft for the last 3 years, 4 holidays in total. This year was even better. The new online booking is really simple to be able to share with the group and get people to choose a location. Then everyone managing their own booking makes it even easier for the group leader!
Fantastic service for all aspects of the holiday. Made our leaves easy.
Very good service from the team at MySwft. Very responsive to messages and would highly recommend using them...I certainly will be again!
No matter your group size or budget, Budapest always delivers when it comes to stag-friendly accommodation.
Those travelling on the cheap will find numerous hostels with cool facilities and unbeatable city centre locations (by that, we mean they’re right on the doorstep of Budapest’s best bars).

Located midway between the river and the Jewish Quarter, this lively hostel is the ideal spot to base yourself for a rowdy weekend away in Budapest. Check into Wombats City Hostel’s clean, comfortable rooms and enjoy easy access to all four corners of the city from the nearby Deák Ferenc Tér bus and tram interchange.

For a slightly more upmarket option that’s still well within your price range, the minimalist yet modern rooms at Ibis Style Hotel are a great compromise. You’ll find a handful of these hotels in Budapest, from one in the Jewish Quarter to one near Petőfi Bridge that’s surrounded by pubs and jazz bars.
After private, comfortable ensuite rooms for a decent price? Check out the Mercure Budapest Korona in the Inner City district that’s within easy walking distance of the river and Liberty Bridge (it leads to must-see Gellért Hill).

It couldn’t be better positioned for visits to St. Stephen’s Basilica, plus it’s just a few minutes’ walk from the riverfront.
For stags on their best behaviour, the posh Corinthia Hotel on the edge of the Jewish Quarter is a no-brainer. It’s found in one of the city’s most elegant 19th century buildings and was formerly known as the Royal Hotel Budapest. Select to stay in its luxurious suites and benefit from complimentary access to the exclusive Executive Lounge.
