Solid Hostel, just didn't feel very clean.

Party seekers: this is your heaven. Most amazing parties I've ever seen in hostels. Definitely worth staying there - although you might get tired of the intensive partying if you are not a party animal. Bathrooms and toilets could be a bit better cleaned up, especially during busy times of the day. But you will survive it. Definitely go for the Boat Party. It is ok also if you want to sleep all day long. Not all rooms have air conditioning and can get really hot.

Vitae is by far the best hostel I have ever stayed at, facilities are clean and the nightly events are incredible. But what makes it is the staff, they are like a big loveable dis functional family. Can't fault any of them. Fables is such a beautiful man, both his delicious physical appearance and generosity is what really made my day. Got a smile that melts your heart. Love Vitae and everything it is. Peace out, see you soon!!

I was sick, so didn't feel like going out all nights I was there. It is a party hostel but they were very respectful of my decision. People didn't arrive yelling and turning on the lights. I had a very pleasant stay, would recommend for any solo traveler going to Budapest!

There are times in your life when things just click, when you instantly realize that you're in a place that feels like home. That place is Vitae. I'd heard so much about Vitae but it exceeded my expectations. Aussie Dave's warm, inviting personality. Tej's charming ways. Tinks' incredible banter and humour, and all the rest, you all hold a special place in my heart. I love you and all your quirks (Santi and his love of llamas). If you like pizza, then you like fun, then you'll love Vitae.

Dirty run down hostel. Would recommend staying elsewhere in a better location. Amenities are terrible and staff are very un-helpful.

Awesome place to stay, staff are so relaxed and provide awesome ways to get into the Budapest party life. They know where to go and what to do, and the rooms are comfortable and clean. Also if someone doesn't want to go out , the hostel is quiet at 10 onwards so there is no problem with noise.

Was welcomed at 2am by a sick guy called Frame, went straight to instant.. he let me sleep on the comfiest bed in the living room til room was ready later. Hostel is really nice with kitchen and facilities and the room was cosy. Recommend the party boat and the karaoke pyjamas which was amazing. On my third night did the drinking olympics with the biggest legend ever Fables! we came so close. Best thing by day is thermal baths. Aussie Dave, Santi, Tinks, Miley, Mansaw, Medlar...all coolguys

Cold showers but warm staff. The people here make the place. Definitely a party hostel. Easy to make friends. Kind of like never never land! Taj will be your Budapest Fairy Godparent and take good care of you if he checks you in so hope that he does!

This hostel was perfect for everything I wanted. Chill during the day with organised activities during the night. Bathrooms and room were clean. Great kitchen facilities, however, there were no laundry facilities. Staff were amazing, so helpful and very entertaining. Definitely a great party hostel. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Budapest.

Staff are probably the spine to the hostel. They are all super friendly and welcoming! They have great activities organised daily. The rooms were large enough even in a 10 bed dorm and the kitchen was great! Area is really close to cool bars, vintage clothing stores and places to eat! It's the perfect balance between partying and just enjoying Budapest on your own accord! Highly recommend :)

Was interacting with 3 friends and this was perfect for partying. Staff were beyond friendly and amazing on the nights out. Very accommodating, we arrived a few hours early and were exhausted so they prioritised our room to be cleaned so we could rest up. Air conditioning was great as it was really hot at the time. Amazing bar crawl and boat party. Also great information on tourist activities.

Such an amazing hostel run by amazing people. In our short time there we made some really good friends and had some unforgettable moments. The parties and other group stuff they do is all a lot of fun. Will definitely keep in touch with the folks there (Pepper, Cosmo, Mansaw and the rest) I will definitely go back there soon! Cheers, Shiv & Magnum

This is the best hostel in Europe by a mile! The hostel is clean which is great for a party hostel! They do hostel dinners, group drinking games and do something every night. The9pm hostel curfew makes sleep possible if you want! The aircon in common room/rooms is great! The best bit are the staff, all of them are travellers and make you feel immediately at home in particular Miley, Cosmo, Meddler and Manza absolutely rock! Only advice i have is leave time to stay longer...You will want to! Zach

Excellent staff, amazing city and so many returned visitors (myself included) and guests who extend their stay for weeks instead of continuing with their planned travels. Cannot fault the place!
