It's a great party hostel! It's quiet enough that you can get some sleep no matter when you come back, unlike the other party hostels. Staff are awesome and there is something fun literally everyday. That said, don't expect the facilities to be amazing, still the staff does their best keeping things clean. And the security is ok. Fables, Tash, cyclops, meddler, dope guys!

This hostel has honestly the best staff I've ever experienced. They genuinely love their job and love the hostel which makes the whole place feel like one big, happy family. This is definitely a party hostel so don't stay here unless you want to go out. That being said, the hostel offers GREAT events like a pub crawl, boat party, beer bike, etc on different nights so there's always something to do. 10/10 would reccomend to anyone looking for a great time in Budapest.

Awesome hostel! The facilities are actually a lot nicer than first impressions when you walk in from down stairs, very cool place. The staff do a brilliant job organising activities for during the day (caving, tours, beer biking etc) and keep the hostel very laid back, before pumping you up for a big night out! Big thanks to all the staff there, will definitely return!

Great security, friendly staff, definitely party hostel, but it's located in a flat building, so the hostel is quite after 8.30/9pm. Loved my stay, would definitely stay again.

Such a great overall experience at this hostel! The staff is amazing and really promotes a social and communal culture. There is always something going on which is great if you like being busy or are traveling alone. If I worked at a hostel it would be Carpe Noctem Vitae!

Great people, great party hostel. Take you to mostly places with other backpackers but most places are ruin bars and real cool. The staff is awesome and the people you will meet equally awesome.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Vitae! Fantastic location and the staff were very welcoming and informative. The best so far on our travels. Special shoutout to Fables and Meddler who made us feel at home and organized some great nights out! Thanks for having us!

This is by far my favorite hostel...and I've seen quite a few. The staff were warm, welcoming, and just downright hysterical. I appreciated their help finding veggie food, interesting sites, and cools bars during my stay. The activities provided gave an opportunity to socialize in a stress-free environment for solo travelers and groups alike. The facilities were lovely and convenient, with ingenious security/room access. I would absolutely recommend this hostel.

Absolutely amazing staff and an amazing time. I was only supposed to be in Budapest for two nights and ended up staying for three weeks between Vitae and their sister hostels. I will definitely be back next summer!

WHAT A HOSTEL! We arrived and signed up straight away to the 3pm beer bike and evening jäger train, which were incredible. My man Fables along with the rest of the staff did a sweet job getting everyone involved, organising events, and keeping the hostel really clean. A bonus to this hostel was the large kitchen facilities as well as the communal areas perfect for a few beers before heading out as a whole hostel to the evening event. I will be hopefully be visiting this hostel again this year.

This hostel is about partying and unfortunately, thats about it. There are a lot of people, but hard to get to know anyone since most people are hungover during the day and at loud bars drinking at night. Which is fun, but kind of impersonal. The staff is really nice, but none are locals and there to keep the party going. If youre in a group of friends looking to party, stay here, if you want to meet others and have a varied exp. stay somehwere else.
