Great hostel for socialising, partying and getting a bit of sleep. Can't make any noise after 9pm which was a bit annoying but overall the staff were helpful with organising activities every day. The hostel could be cleaner but can't really fault them. Place was great

An excellent hostel for party goers and young travellers who want to meet new people. Location in the city is bang on, and there are many group activities provided by the friendly and enthusiastic staff. Value for money is unmatched. So good I had to extend my stay and still did not want to leave. Have recommended it to everyone I have met who is travelling to Budapest. Just do it!

Carpe Nocturn Vitae is a fine example of exactly what it says it is, a party hostel. If your not ready to get drunk and debaucherous with a group of awesome people then steer clear. I honestly thought I could but after 3 nights I was a soulless shell of a human being. Definitely worth the experience though, and the place has the best atmosphere of any hostel I've been to. Stayed at retox too, in my opinion carpe nocturn vitae is better.

Crazy good hostel. Staff are champions who are ready to make your stay in Budapest event filled and fun. Location is close to all things worth seeing/doing. Very clean, comfortable and if your after quiet this is enforced heavily at ten pm. I will most certainly be coming back for round two. Cheers you bunch of legends. Beerie

Definitely a party hostel! You won't get away with not going out there and the nights out are amazing, the whole hostel goes out together and there is an organised night every night. Standards were excellent, a family meal every night and the best part about it was the people who ran it. So amazingly helpful and friendly and are the sole reason for the great atmosphere that comes with the place. I would definitely recommend a visit to anyone wanting to have a great time ( free table football!).

This was the most fun I've ever had at a hostel. The staff were absolutely incredible getting everyone involved in whatever was happening so no one felt out of place. And the place itself has really nice places to chill out and meet people if partying isn't your thing. I will definitely be returning some day in the future.

Good hostel but this goes above beyond the title of your usual party hostel... it is ONLY a party hostel.. as in dont stay here unless you wanna party. Staff were great and super knowledgeable but yeah be prepared for 3am squealing girls.

This was the best hostel we have stayed at. Amazing facilities, staff and atmosphere. The nightly events were great, and we were genuinely sad to leave. Would definitely recommend.

Met great people and made new friends The atmosphere was brilliant, a good mix of partying and relaxed. In terns if location, it's situated perfectly: close enough to train station; near the ruin bars; not far from the terror house baths and zoo, next to a major tram line.

This place is awesome, the staff is open friendly and will easily be a great drinking buddy if your that socially awkward. The atmosphere is for the party people so if your not trying to be that...don't, just don't be a kill joy on other peoples good time (you know who you are).

If you want to party and don't care about cleanliness/quiet too much its great. Not somewhere to go to relax though. The staff are very knowledgable.

The staff were brilliant, always up for going out and doing things. The location is right on the main road where all of the bars are, you can't complain at that! It's right on the top floor of a block of apartments which you need a key code to access. Once on the top floor you then use your electronic wrist key to open the door to the hostel and your room. Overall, I would definitely go back to Carpe Noctem Vitae.

Great hostel, staff are very welcoming and eager to get people involved and show them a good night out in Budapest, good location near to night-life and centre of the city. Would highly recommend.

The hostel is extrememly dirty, particularly the bathrooms. It is a party hostel but it is still a hostel. 2 of the showers were broken, shower curtains were full of mildows, bathroom floor was always dirty.

Words cannot describe how AMAZING this hostel is! If you want to have a really fun time and experience Budapest at it's best, then you MUST stay here! Despite some hiccups with our booking, the staff were bloody fantastic at making it up to us! BIG shoutout to Frame who personally paid for our boat party tickets

This place has literally provided me with some of the happiest memories of my life so far. At Vitae, you are instantly made to feel like one of the family and both staff and guests help create the awesome social atmosphere that makes the hostel such a great place to be. It's always worth getting involved in the nights out that the hostel runs as they are all a guaranteed good time. Shout out to Emily, Cyclops and Frame for making my time as memorable and enjoyable as it was!
