Vitae is legendary. It was recommended to me by three friends on three separate occasions. There are events every single night of the week. From pub crawls to all-you-can-drink clubs to boat parties. You will meet the coolest people at this hostel and you will have an amazing time in Budapest. I stayed during off-season (Dec) and had a blast. A special shout out to the awesome staff who made me feel like part of the family - Fables, Gash, Lish, Sho, Miley, Phoenix. Miss y'all. I'll be back. :)

I really enjoyed this hostel, it was one of the best I've ever stayed in. In fact I loved it so much I extended my stay an extra two weeks and even then didn't really want to leave. The people who stay here and work here are awesome, they really make you feel at home. The activities every night were a ton of fun. I would definitely stay here again, in fact I'm planning my next trip here for Sgizet already. Can't wait to go back!

Favorite hostel in Europe! I walked through the door and within minutes felt like family! Beautiful atmosphere and the staff is prime. Such warm hearted fun people (Well other than Fables cause he'll steal your McDonald's)..they make every night in Budapest a blast from all you can drink clubs to boat parties! i was initially booked in for 5 nights..Stayed 6 weeks! And this hostel is definitely the reason, so don't do Budapest wrong..Stay at Vitae!:) Shout to everyone but Aussie Dave!! Boyz.

The hostel is great. The staff are absolutely brilliant and very helpful especially the girl from Newcastle. The atmosphere is very party like. So if you're into that all the time then this is the place for you. The beds could really use new sheets and covers as they smell and worn out.I recommend this place if your main reason for the trip is partying. Which is what this placemail is really good at. The hostel is located in a residential area so you cant be too loud at night.

Staff are awesome. Gilly, lish, wonk, everyone just so nice and hospitable. Rented the private room it was huge. Nightly events really fun. People that stayed there really cool. All in all great stay.

Don't let the poorly google-translated Latin name put you off: Vitae is a solid 10/10 gem filled with an amazing bunch of people who are here to make your stay as awesome as they are (which is mildly awesome). It's all in the atmosphere that makes people from around the world meet and become friends -- nay, family -- in mere moments. It speaks to the beauty of Vitae that guests arrive to stay for a few nights and end up perpetually extending. Shoutout to the staff, you guys are one of a kind

Loved my stay here- the staff were amazing and the nightly events really showed another side of Budapest. Great for solo travelers and feels like a home away from home! Can't reccomend enough!

The absolute best hostel I've ever stayed in- anywhere! The entire staff is extremely knowledgeable, insanely welcoming & just all around legends. Group activities and nights out are literally unbeatable. Was meant to stay only ten days and have kept extending because I honestly love every second here. Shouts to Hook, Di, Wonk, Phoenix, Miley, Hickey, Ghillie, Sho, Gash, Fables & of course Aussie Dave. Thanks for making thousands of miles away still feel like home. Love you all :)

Awesome bunch of people! Great atmosphere, always group events going on, and copious amounts of alcohol. Gets a bit messy in the rooms and bathrooms, but that's to be expected of a party hostel. Highly recommended if you'd like to have some fun in Budapest. Cheers guys

The staff is amazing but Fables is the soggiest. ;) This hostel has events every night that are all a blast! Boat party, alcoholympics, pub crawl in bars from the ruins, etc. They can also set you up with the tickets and directions to many other activities that Budapest has to offer! Beer bike, thermal baths, and caving to name a couple. Definitely recommend! You won't be ready to leave when the time comes ;)

Fantastic hostel - everything is amazing. The staff are sooooo knowledgeable about the city and have really genuine recommendations. The hostel has events on every night - the best party hostel I've been to. I've already overstayed by 5 days. The only two things I can pick at are the lack of space to keep packs in the big dorm rooms and the lack of laundry services in the hostel (but there is a laundromat within 5 min walking distance.

Again Carpe Noctem Vitae gave me another amazing stay. Really can't say enough how much these guys welcome you in like a family, give you such a fun unforgettable experience and go out of their way to help you out or give any advice you need. Big cheers to all the Vitae kids new and old had a rad time partying on with you making new mates and memories. Will be back soon to do it all again and winepedo a bottle a rose with Fables the soggy unit. Vitae for life xox

Awesome staff! They were super helpful and point you in the direction of everything you need plus fantastic places to eat etc. especially on a student budget. Definitely had a party atmosphere but everyone is so inclusive and make you feel part of the family!

If you are ready to be social, make amazing friends, and party like no other. Look no further. Fables is a real legend, as is the rest of the staff. Cheers!
