Awesome hostel in great location with fantastic social atmosphere.
good : extremely helpful and friendly staff. all of them speaks perfect english. there are organized party-related activities every day, and there is always a collection of people kicking back in the common room. bad : the overall hygiene and privacy in this place are abysmall. the common room smells, staff do not wear shoes (which is fine until they go up on your bed with their dirty bear feet), the bathrooms are disgusting and the rooms too small and with windows through which all can see.
Great hostel, Great location, Even better people - Was a bit worried about the language barrier etc. before arriving but everyone makes you feel right at home (city map, circling do's and dont's, recommendations etc.) Has a super chill environment with a definite party vibe but the noise is always kept down so if you're not into the partying atmosphere its still a great space. Really well organised bar crawl every night that meets up with other hostels so is easy to meet people esp. when solo
This is an order. Go there. I'm going back next year and I stayed a week. The staff are awesome and their is someone to meet and something to do every night alone or as a group. So much do by day and night.
I booked two nights at Carpe but moved to another hostel after the first night, mainly because the other guests weren't really my kind of crowd and the hostel itself wasn't so clean. Positives: the staff give a very personalised service, giving you loads of useful info when you arrive and showing you to your room. This is a party hostel so they organise a night out every night, if that's your thing. If you're 18-22 and just want to party, stay here. If not, I wouldn't recommend it.
If you are looking only party and do not care at all about comfort and cleanliness, then you will like. Now if you like parties, but also want the minimum of comfort and cleanliness, as I do, then I recommend looking elsewhere. The negative points are: small toilets and bathrooms, some showers with only cold water, and general poor cleanliness. Good think is the night activities and friendly staff
