If you are wanting to stay at an infamous budapest party hostel but are anxious about not being able to keep up or sleep for that matter, look no further than vitae. Great vibe from staff and guests, plenty of fun activities to do and best location in all of budapest. Just make sure you ask someone to tell you the rules of the hostel before you get intoxicated.

After my first stay at Vitae during the summer I didn't think any other trip could come close to matching its shear immensity. However, winter in Budapest and Vitae is a completely different experience and one that took my love for this hostel to an even higher level. Though some of the staff were new, the Vitae ethos and atmosphere was entirely unchanged and we had an incredible week of seeing the city in a new light and hitting the party scene harder than ever. This is the only place to stay.

This is by far the best hostel I've ever stayed at, the staff are the friendliest leople and juat want ro make sure you have a good time, always ready to recommend places to see or eat and all the good places to get a drink, and will gladly parry with you. Awesome kitchen and chill area as well makes it so easy to meet new people and other travellers. Organised pub crawls and fun things to do every night and so many things to see during the day, Vitae is the best place to do it all.

Such a sick hostel. If your sociable and wanna have a sick time in Budapest go to this hostel. Staff are awesome as hell. Really helpful and freindly, the nights they organise for everyone are so sick as well. Going to go back here next week.

If you are looking to have a fun time and meet a bunch of people, this is the place for you. Definitely a party hostel and there is something going on every night of the week. But if you want to stay in and relax you can do that as well as there are quite hours after 10pm in the hostel. My only complaint is that it gets a bit dirty at times, I saw a mouse in the kitchen late one night. But would still recommend.

Amzing time in Budapest, thanks to Carpe Noctem Vitae staff. Everyone are so chill. And of course crazy partyiers. First thing after walking in they offered me a beer witch was amazing after traveling all day. Every night there are events to go out and if you don't feel like party you can just chill watching movie. All partyiers are out by 20:30 so there is time to relax. Definately would recommend to everyone!!!

Fantastic party hostel if this is what you are after! The staff are amazing, sit down with you and have a chat about where to go and what to eat. A lot of pressure to go out every night so may not be everyone's cup of tea. Also everyone was very sick so this was not a great atmosphere at the time

What do I say about this indescribable wonderland. First a guest in February for a week, extended to a month, worked until September. I've never felt so far away from the real world and so happy partying. By far the closest most intimate friendships I've ever made. Ive never felt so relaxed and at ease with life. I'll never take away unforgettable life memories that come close to these. I'll never feel more at home with my family. I'll never be this free again. Careful it might happen to you.

I've stayed at Carpe Noctem a couple times, but this was my first visit to Vitae. Great location, directly across the street from the 4/6 tram line and a couple blocks from the Metro. Very secure building and an AMAZING wristband system for room access (so no creepers getting in!). Staff were awesome and always down to suggest fun activities. I did a couple evening activities and they were well organized. Definitely a party hostel, and a guaranteed good time. A favorite spot, must come back!

You truly get what is advertised. Every night there are pubevents for the partyhungry person and a lot of people from the hostel join in the fun. As a solotraveller I found the atmosphere extremely open and friendly and I quickly made a group of friends with the same idea of this stay as I had and we had great fun together. (I dearly missed some washing facilities, had forgot to check if they had this before I mad the booking, so that one is on me.)

Staff at Vitae were amazing. It was really well run and had a great social atmosphere - perfect for meeting other travellers. No one ever wants to leave this place.

This is definitely the place to stay if you want to meet people and party while in Budapest but still would like the option of staying in and relaxing some nights. The staff was friendly and had great recommendations (shoutout to Tinks and Clover!!). It was an overall amazing experience being there!

This hostel is genuinely my second home. I've never had so much fun, whether we were partying harder than ever before or chilling in the amazing common room with the most incredible people I've ever met. The staff make you feel like part of a family you will never want to leave. Cannot put into words the fun you will have. This is my 2nd time here and I'll be back at Xmas. And probably many more times. love to tables murph frame medler cbelt tinks cyclops clover gillie santi dj

The staff make you feel like part of a family you will never want to leave- I abandoned a flight I had already paid for to stay longer because no amount of money can compare to the experience here. love to tables murph frame medler cbelt tinks skinnyp cyclops clover and the most reliable ghillie

Staff is excellent making you feel at home once you walk in the door. Try to go during the weekend as there are group (drinking) activities that allow you to meet people in your hostel and their sister hostels. Highly recommend the boat ride Thursday nights.

So much fun and the best environment for making friends- I turned up alone, but by the end didn't want to leave everyone. If you don't want to go out, you can still chill out and do touristy things. Great atmosphere and staff!

Having stayed at a number of hostels throughout Europe, i can confidently say that this was the most impressive in all aspects. The facilities meet a satisfactory standard, staff are all incredibly helpful and friendly, and the location is perfect. With this in mind, I believe that the most outstanding feature of this hostel is the culture and community that resides within its walls. For young travelers who are seeking an opportunity to experience Hungarian culture while having an amazing time.
