The staff was totally unprofessional and completely stoned when we arrived to do the check-in. Although we had a reservation for a 6 bedroom, we were split in three rooms. All the hostel was full of rubbish (empty bottles all over the place, food in the rooms, clothes on the floor, ....). When we woke up in the morning there were several people slipping in the beds and people were coming in and out of the rooms during the whole night making it impossible to sleep.

Great location if you want to be in the middle of the party hub and fab party hostel for those early, single 20 some things. If in 30s you'll feel old!

Great place to stay. Sometimes they run out of locks, better bring your own... Many events and helpful relaxed staff.

Best bathrooms I have had during my 6 week trip around Europe. Really big and clean. Good kitchen facilities, plenty of space to hang out in. Events on every night. Perfect.

I stayed here as a solo travelor. This is a good party hostel were everyone goes out in the evening. There is no bar and the common area is layed out a bit weird so can be tricky to meet people. I luckily was in a room with nice people so that helped. Only down side is it's a little bit rough round the edges in terms of cleanliness, and lots of people were late teens early 20s and I'm getting onto 30 now so would have been nice to have some older people. But That's me being difficult.

Great place to meet people and have an amazing time in Budapest. The bar crawls are awesome and it's a small place so you get to meet a lot of people. If you stay here you will have the best time. It's a family style place and everyone just wants you to be a part of it. You should 100% stay here. It's a nice option if you wanna stay in a party hostel but don't want to be partying every second of the day. Loved it!!! The place is not the cleanest but you get over it because you are loving life

You can't describe vitae in words, only feelings of extreme happiness and joy. I've never had more fun at a hostel - the staff are awesome, every night there are cool activities (e.g.boat party,) the facilities and security are great but overall the atmosphere is unbeatable. You feel like you're part of a big family that you get really drunk with every night. The only downside is that you'll never want to leave. Shoutout to Frame who now owes me 3 beers!

Great hostel, just make sure you want to party day and night, because that is what people are there to do. It was a fun stay in what was a very fun city.

I loved this hostel! Real homely, clean & secure for a party hostel. Has all the things you'd have at home & more (kitchen, couches, a/c, beanbags, computers, foozball etc). Good location on a main road but not too hectic as it's on the top floor of a multi-level building (that has a lift-amazing). I was here during SZIGET so the normal activities that they run each night weren't on but reckon the place would put on a decent night out since they're a part of the party hostel chain.. RECOMMEND!

This should not be at 92%. It's a reasonable hostel and the staff were very friendly. But the bathroom facilities were shabby and the rooms are quite small.

Have been on the road for 7 months and this would have to be one of the funnest hostels I've stayed at. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Entertainment every night usually at one of the sisters hostels which is good because they are really close and if you want to escape the party one night you can just stay in. I don't think the Budapest experience would be the same if you didn't stay here

The hostel was great. Everyone was friendly and the security on the doors was good. The only suggestion I would have is that the staff get some sort of uniform or something! I had no idea who worked at the hostel or not and it was disconcerting to have people walk into your room when you know they're not staying there, only to find out that they are staff. It also made it difficult to know who to ask for assistance. Other than that, I'd definitely stay here again.

So much fun and the staff really are amazing. Not super clean but I think you get value for money in that you are definitely going to make friends and have a good time.

Need to fix the hot water, no one likes a cold shower.

I had a great 6 days here. The staff were extremely helpful. There is something going on every night, usually joining up with one of the sister hostels. The staff here make it a great place to stay, and will make you feel at home. Go here to party! There was some issues with showers not draining properly and air conditioning malfunctioning on a few hot nights, but the staff did their best to fix the problems. On the higher end for price, and could be cleaner, but fun!
