Great place for a fun time! If you're in Budapest to party but aren't so keen on being force-fed tequila as soon as you walk in the door, then this hostel might be for you. Great atmosphere with friendly staff and guests who were all keen to socialise. The rooms are a bit rough around the edges (noisy doors, poorly ventilated, on the cold side) and the bathrooms likely require flip flops. Great common areas though, with comfy couches and good vibes!

So I started my stay with the intent of only staying 3 nights, I ended up staying 8. The staff is amazing, from the moment I walked through the door to sharing the last cheers as I left. I came with about 50 fewer Facebook friends, and as a solo traveler that's saying something. All the activities! Something fun is goin down every night of the week! Pretty much the worst part of this hostel is leaving it. Its also a hostel that it is what you make of it so just be yourself and you will have fun!

If you're going to Budapest, you seriously have to stay here. The location is great, the atmosphere is fantastic, and the staff are seriously some of the coolest people you'll ever meet. Vitae is a place where you'll have the best time of your life and meet some badass folks. Don't expect to stay for just a few days, though... It's basically impossible not to extend.

THIS PLACE IS A TRAP! For angels that is.... This place is rockin' and rollin' 7 days a week and I'm never leaving! The staff are all individually amazing people on their own and then when you combine them it's even better! The staff are always on their A game when it comes to cleaning, partying, and making us feel like a family. There's always something fun to do here and the common loft area makes it great for meeting new people and socialising. They have a disco shower!!!! COME TO VITAE!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here! The wonderful staff are absolutely amazing- they offer a warm welcome right from the beginning, and happily point out the local attractions, from the primary tourist spots, to their favorite local restaurants, from the moment you check in. They facilitate a wide variety of social events every night in conjunction with the sister hostels, which make it virtually impossible not to make friends! Definitely one of my top 3 hostels in Europe so far!!

This place is like Hotel California, you will never leave. The staff are all chill-ass dudes, you kinda just want to climb inside them but not in a perverted way... Heaps of fun evening activities, beers for breakfast, family meals and a sweet entertainment suite for when one is too hungover to leave the hostel. Excellent location, walking distance to all the important amenities such as kebab shops and tourist stuff. Shout out to Tables and also Murph has really outSTANDing, excellent legs...

Best hostel! I was only supposed to stay for two days, but ended up there fro a week because the staff and guests were so much fun. Special shoutout to Clover and Medler for being awesome and Tables for having really excellent knees.

The staff were super fun but didn't really go out of their way to help out - whenever we asked for suggestions or even tried to check in they would just tell us to go chill out for 10 minutes. The showers barely worked, there was gum stuck on my bed and the mattress was beyond terrible. The boat party was super fun though and pub crawls showed us some fabulous bars and clubs, wifi worked well in the rooms and when the staff felt like it they were also really fun.

Carpe noctum vitae was amazing! By day, the staff are super friendly and always willing to give us delicious food recommendations and organizing tickets for baths, museums etc. Shout out to swapsie and murph for your help! By night the staff turn into crazy party animals and you can be sure wherever they are taking you, the night will be awesome! Make sure you stay close to tables who will ensure you have a memorable night! Overall, no better place to stay in Budapest!

Carpe Noctem Vitae is like the most awesome place ever. Imagine living in Neverneverland, with drunk Peter Pan as your guide - that is what this place is like. You are guaranteed to party hard and have all kinds of fun. Tinks is great. So is Tables. Stay here or you're an idiot.

A really friendly, super social, fun hostel with great vibes. Can feel a little like a frat house at times, not necessarily a bad thing. Great place to stay, particularly if you're traveling alone (as you will be guaranteed to meet tonnes of people) and/or wanting to party and get involved in the nightlife. Great area too, close to shops, awesome bars and tram lines.

I love Vitae! I want to return immediately. Amazing staff - every single one of you! You guys know how to involve and interact with everyone and you always keep us informed. A truly great atmosphere for solo or group travelers, plenty of awesome guests to become friends with and see the sights by day and night. You won't find a better hostel in Budapest. Special shout out to Santiago, congrats on the job and initiation my amigo!

The hostel was really well located and was quite clean for a party hostel. We had several staff members coming into our room un announced which was not cool and made us feel really uneasy as they came in while we were sleeping and changing.The pub crawls were ok although the party atmosphere at times felt a bit forced.
