A really fun party hostel for anyone that wants to have a great time in Budapest! The staff are awesome also!

Great location, spacious, and very fun staff here! This is definitely a party hostel, and I was definitely not disappointed in that aspect, but the still kept the place very clean! Unfortunately, the room next to the kitchen on the lower level is awful. If anyone is in the kitchen, you can hear them at full volume in the room, just as loud as the door's heavy slam every time it would close. Morning people, late night partiers, every sounds keeps you from getting any sleep! Avoid that room!

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.

Great staffs with good attitudes. Night activities organized so there's always something to do. Great shower.

We went to Hungary for a holiday, Carpe Noctem Vitae is where we chose to stay. We were greeted at the door by a couple of the workers, they said "hey, welcome to the circus". At first we weren't sure of what this meant, though as the week went on we understood their intent. By day the hostel was calm and settled, then by night the parties were insanely mental. But by morning Fables and the crew had washed away all the nights shame. This is the story of how CNV got there 5star name.

This is the best hostel ever... Amazing staff, insanely fun/positive atmosphere, great location. Had the craziest week here, went to almost all of the activities they organized (Sparty, karaoke, halloween pub crawl) and always woke up the next day not remembering much, but knowing I had a great time!! Definitely go here... PS. Fables, you have the best smile!!

Excellent staff, good location and very comfortable rooms. If party hostels are your thing then this is for you - however having to be kicked out of the common rooms if you're having a beer after 10pm is a bit silly. Overall a good stay but we got sick of the "party hostel" vibes.

Excellent stuff. Really dirty and horrible showers. Location is very good and wifi works properly. Good place for party. No credit card wich is not good for a country without euro

Carpe Noctem Vitae is by far the best hostel I've stayed at. If you don't stay here you're a fool and you need to rectify this toot sweet. So do yourself a favour and make another trip to Budapest. Literally the best of both worlds - awesome party hostel, as well as a chill place to relax and get some info on what to explore in the city. Gem of a place, so get on it.

One of the party hostels, but deffinatly more chill. If you don't want to go out your not trapped into the party for the night, but if you do you will have an amazing time with the crew! I was there for 2 nights of Halloweek, and it was so much fun, and met a whole bunch of awesome people. Guys know heaps about the city as well, so any questions will be answered. Will welcome you with open arms and take you out on the party scene for an amazing time in Budapest, thanks guys! I'll be back soon.

Carpe Noctem Vitae. What a fantastic hostel. Not my first visit and not my last. Can't recommend this place more. Huge shout out to that gruesomely handsome Murph, eyebrowless Tables, vivacious Frame Funt. Alas, this place used to have another team member who brought tears of joy and endless laughter...Flynch. Rumour has it he was too much fun for this hostel, apparently he got shipped to the maximum party hostel Retox down the road. Miss that dude. Still a great place

Vitae is such an incredible place. It feels like home and i am heartbroken to be leaving. The staff here are the most amazing, friendly, wild bunch of people I've ever met and i will never forget them, they are like my family now. Special love for C-belt, undoubtedly the best person in the world and our absolute favourite. There is always something happening at vitae, from day activities to going out with everyone at night. We will definitely be coming back!
