Can't recommend Vitae more, it was the best trip and definitely best hostel I've ever stayed at. The staff are amazing, especially Murph and Cyclops who really helped me when I had problems with my booking... The atmosphere is incredible and you can easily meet many like minded travellers. The staff offers help with what to do/see in the daytime and includes everyone in the nightly outings which are so much fun. Already miss everyone a lot, can't wait to go back!

We stayed at Vitae our first time in Budapest and loved it so much we came back again. The rooms are great, the atmosphere of the hostel is awesome and every night out there's something good going on. The staff are also what makes this place so unreal, always going above and beyond to make you feel welcome and make sure you have a good time. Vitae really sets the standards in my books for the way any hostel experience should be and I can't recommend it enough.

Great staff, clean facilities, amazing atmosphere. They will take you out every night, book amazing day activities, and then even cook you dinner while you are there. Really icool old building in a perfect and super accessible location. Also, having been there in July, a hostel with AC was so nice to return to. It's a mistake to book anywhere else really.

Perfect hostel if you're in Budapest to party. We were in the new part of the hostel. Our room was one floor down from the reception which was perfect because we could sleep without being disturbed by people who came back super late/early extremely drunk or by the early birds. Also, don't miss the sparty! Every sunday night during the summer.

Highly rate this hostel, the location is great and they can provide anything you need. Great atmosphere, everyone is super friendly and the staff are really helpful with heaps of ideas to explore the city and make sure you have a great time. The hostel is in a great location, within walking distance to anything you need and on a main road.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time at Carpe Noctem Vitae due to the laid back and social atmosphere and super friendly staff. Rooms and common areas furnished very nicely

One of the best hostels I've stayed in purely for the vibe and location. It's right in the city centre. Staff are so welcoming and friendly. There are nightly (and daily) events that almost everyone gets involved in (there are also dinners if you want to chip in) which makes for a really fun atmosphere. No breakfast but communal kitchen, TV, computers, lounge area and balcony.

If you want to party- go here. If not, don't stay here. Full of young and messy Aussies.

I arrived in Budapest expecting to stay for 2 nights, but thanks to Carpe Noctem Vitae I ended up staying for 13! I've seen many guests come and go in that time and they have been some of the best people I've ever met, but it's the hostel's ethos and staff that have been the highlight of my stay. Massive shout out to Frame, Murph, Flinch for being the sickest guys and the rest of the beautiful staff for showing me the best time... I can't wait to come back!

This is a fantastic hostel, especially if a solo traveller. It has a great atmosphere, the staff and other guests make you feel immediately apart of a family. The location is great if you want to sight see, but if not Vitae has great common areas where it's guaranteed you will be surrounded by people. I highly recommend and I would come back to budapest just to stay at vitae.

I really liked this hostel, the staff were very friendly and welcoming. My only criticism would be that the air conditioning in our room didn't work properly, so being there in summer meant our room was very hot, which made it difficult to sleep.

We had the best stay at this hostel! The hostel has a high standard compared to other places we stayed in Europe, the rooms are big and has the most comfy beds. We even had our own bathroom. But the best thing is the atmosphere! The staff is really welcoming and made everyone feel included, we especially liked the super hot red-haired girl

It's a difficult place to find. On the main strip but located on the top floor of a Brothel-looking apartment building. Sketchy and ghetto entrance in but once you're up there you'll understand it's just a place for college kids to hangout, drink, and smoke. We stayed in a private and it was really spacious, had a washer and dryer, and a balcony. The bathrooms and shower were really clean too. There was even a kitchen and stove top! It can be a little disorganized but a fun place nonetheless

Really sweet hostel, made Budapest one of my favourite city's. Everyone that work there wants you to have the best time so it's impossible to not. Met so many cool kids when I stayed here as well. I've been telling people to stay here.

I will be staying here again when I revisit Budapest. Absolutely amazing staff and great atmosphere in the hostel. If you want to be able to party and still get a quiet nights sleep, this is the place for you. Big thanks to Big Willy Smooth a.k.a Cyclopse a.k.a Narley Marley a.k.a The Rasta Masta a.k.a Thunder 12".

This is a great hostel! The staff are very helpful and organize events for every night, as well as offer many great suggestions for places to eat and see. Stayed in the newer part of the hostel and it was very nice. I would definitely stay at this hostel the next time I am in Budapest. Would also recommend to friends.

After two months of travelling coming back to Vitae is like coming home (and not just because it's full of other Australians). The hostel is incredibly well run and very clean. The popularity of the hostel itself if really a testament to the staff. They provide so much helpful information about things to do Budapest during the day and make you feel incredibly welcome. Beyond that Vitae is like a big family and you will never regret your stay there!
