Vitae would have to be one of the raddest ever hostels. With a bunch of quality staff, comfortable rooms, plenty of communal areas (with so much room for activities), a decent kitchen and family dinners. If you want an ensuite stay at a hotel and have a bad one. If you want to have a mad time but also want to see Buapest in all it’s glory and not just spend your day sleeping off a hangover, go Vitae. Ps. Get Aussie Dave to make you Bolognaise, just beware if he offers you tomato soup
Even though the location was on point, there were other factors that lacked at this Hostel. Yes it is a party hostel and they know how to have a good time but that is not all that traveling is about. My friends and I should not have been ridiculed for being in bed by 1 a.m and doing educational sightseeing adventures. If you wanna wake up to a smelly room This is the place for you. Also the staff remained clueless on many topics.
This place rocks! Make sure you know what you're in for..pack the Berocca. Keep your eyes peeled for the one called Noddy..he knows how to party but is the one you want for a mushbrained hangover chat too. Hard to leave..'one more night..!'
Awesome hostel! The staff are super lovely and make you feel like you're part of a family... You can't help but have a good time!
Vitae is by far the best hostel I have stayed in over my three month trip. Not-so-angry Steve and the rest of the team go above and beyond their jobs to ensure everyone staying at Vitae has an amazing time in Budapest. There are parties every night and always someone to drink with during the day. They cook a super cheap dinner each night (Leah's veggie chilli is amazing). Staying at Vitae is like living in college with your friends. I had such an amazing time and really did not want to leave.
I have spent over a year traverling around different parts of the world and this would by far be the best Hostal I have stayed in its like being at home, the staff make it this way with lots of effort being put in from the moment you walk in the door, if you want to party rest or see sights they have got it covered, big thank you to Stevo, Cosmo Boyzone,Rosie and Lea for making Budapest amazing!
This place was amazing! Staff (and other travellers) were so friendly it felt like a big family or something! Evening activities were heaps of fun and definitely worth doing. Stayed here with two others we all agreed its the best hostel we've stayed at so far.
One of our favourite hostels of ALL TIME!! Staff are incredible! We did Exit Point with a few of them and had the best time. They are one of the Budapest Party Hostels and every night there was a different event including themed nights, a party boat, ruin pub crawls, and a bath party. We stayed for a week but could have easily stayed a month or longer there. They provided us with crazy fun party nights but also a homely environment we could easily sleep in. Highly recommend this hostel!!!
Despite being a party hostel (with some sort of drinking-related activity organised for each night), this hostel is very well organised and facilitative of good times. The group dinners (for which you chip-in a nominal amount by a set time each day) done are a great initiative! The staff always seemed happy to help (even 'Angry Steve') and a lot of people who have come here extend their stay even to the point of becoming staff themselves, which says a lot. Cheers!

This is the best Hostel I have stayed at hands down. If there was a rating higher than Excellent for both Staff and Atmosphere I would tick it. Thanks for an awesome time! I will return.

Can't thank you guys enough for the BEST time in Budapest! Had so much fun, felt so at home and will def be coming back to stay when I'm in Budapest next.
In 6 weeks of leaving hostel reviews, this is my first 100%. I had SO MUCH FUN I did not want to leave!! Facilities were great, free dinner lots of fun, the location couldn't be better being right by octagon. When I checked in at like 9am, Aussie Dave (BEST hostel guy EVER) spent 30 minutes going over the map with me! Very fun and caring staff was the best part of Vitae. Stay here. you'll miss out on the best possible Budapest experience if you don't.
This was an amazing hostel, quite possibly the nicest I've seen in Europe. It's a party hostel, but not at all pushy about it. Events organized every night, with the 3 other hostels in this chain. Very cheap and good facilities, bloody awesome staff, Canadian Jesus was hilarious and great to hang with. Definitely stay here if you're coming to Budapest.
I cannot rave about this place enough. The staff are the most incredible people I've ever met. Staying there is like staying with extended family - after a few hours there you'll feel right at home. The activities organised each night are super fun and cheap. They are also overly helpful when it comes to general local questions and tips. Facilities are great, modern, quirky, lots of showers and bathrooms, giant kitchen and awesome wifi.
Carpe Noctem Vitae is absolutely amazing. Unbelievable place, so comfy you feel like your at home! Staff makes you feel really welcome and helps you with anything you need. Its in a great location right near many popular bars and clubs and plenty of locations to eat and drink nearby. Very secure always with a great atmosphere as the staff leads a different event every night. Rooms are cleaned daily and there are plenty of areas to relax throughout the hostel and its so cheap value for money!!!!!
Good hostel. Quietest of all the party hostels, but good to be able to get a good nights sleep. Staff are friendly and helpful
Wifi worked well and beds were super comfortable! They play drinking games before hand and the staff are a lot of fun. Defiantly reccomend this hostel
It's a great hostel that has a nice party vibe with events on every night. It could be a little better singed on arrival and the lift is a little iffy but that's a small problem. Enjoy your stay there.
The STAFF is what makes this hostel so enjoyable. Great sense of humor and definitely know how to have a good time. So helpful with recommendations!! Overall, the hostel looked great, was fairly clean, and felt secure. I was really, really pleased with my stay and would recommend this to anyone considering to stay in Budapest.
