At Carpe Noctem Vitae you can have as much fun as you can possibly handle, and then if you need a day/night to recover, that's okay too! Just beware that if you decide to stay in most of your roomies won't get home until 3-4am, so pack a pair of decent ear plugs and you're good to go!

I went into this experience knowing this was a party hostel, but Budapest being a later stop on a long trip, I was in need of a break from the partying. As one would imagine, Carpe Noctem is not the place for that. But if you're up for heavy partying every night, this is definitely the place for you! The staff was nice, albeit a bit disorganized. The place is not very clean but nothing too bad. All in all, if your main priority is partying, book Carpe Noctem.

Best hostel I've ever stayed at!!!! The atmosphere is great, I felt at home as soon as I checked in, and it has a fantastic environment for making new friends (perfect for solo travellers). The activities during the night were so much fun and the hostel was also really lively with lots going on during the day as well. The staff are all wonderful, helpful and friendly and the facilities/ cleanliness of the hostel are great too. The only downside? You'll never want to leave!

Great atmosphere with friendly staff and a great mix of travellers there for a good time. Fantastic location right in the centre of town with excellent transport links, places to eat and things to do. Wish I could have stayed longer!

The staff is very friendly, the organisation was very well, they were no loggers but they are going to buy. It is a chaotic but it has a nice athmosphere and you will not get bored there.

What can I say about Vitae.. In my 3 months this could be my favourite hostel. Despite it being 100+ beds, I've never felt more welcome at a hostel. Everyone is here to have a good time and the staff show it with night activities 7 days a week that will all get you equally hammered. Even though its a party hostel, I never had problems with any facilities, cleanliness, or security, and could always get a nights rest when I needed to. Absolutely legendary hostel, this one.

Hands down this is the most amazing place I have ever stayed. The staff are amazing and go out of their way to help you. There is activities on every single night which are so much fun and a great way to meet people. The hostel is beautiful and has a lot of characteristics. Cannot recommend this hostel enough!!

This hostel is really cool! The building that you stay in is one of a kind and really beautiful! It's an awesome hostel if you want to party although it also caters for people that want to relax aswell as they impose a no noise curfew.. The staff were axing and went out of there way to make sure you were having a good time and making sure you experience whats on offer in Budapest! Only thing I can see as a negative was the showers. But they are fine to use just not the best! STAY HERE!!

This is the perfect hostel for anyone who wants to explore Budapest by day and party hard at night. The staff are beyond amazing, they gave tons of information on what to do and where to go plus they get hammered with you every night. Communal drinking games and organised nights out with guests and staff every night, the best place to stay. This hostel has ruined all other hostels for me cause nothing can match vitae!

Vitae is the best thing that will ever happen to you. I don't know a single person that didn't extend there stay while there cause they couldn't bear to leave their "new vitae family" behind (including myself). The staff, location, events and guests are the best of the best. Go to vitae, guarantee you won't regret it. You might even have the honor of meeting your fellow birthday buddy!

honestly the experience was a very good one. I did not do the party thing though they had lots of cool activities planned if you wanted to join in. I just need a place to stay and this was convenient. I had gotten a single private room and all it included was a bed which was changed right in front of me for some clean sheets so that was good. many facilities throughout fairly quiet until the party goes come home and make some noise. Not the hostel's fault but lots of friendly staff.

This is the best goddamn hostel in the world. If you're by yourself and worried that you will be lonely or whatever, stop stressing. The staff are the coolest people ever (shout out to the big fella, Cyclops), and everyone there is just down for a good time. All the facilities are great too. Stay here. Just do it.

This place is AWESOME! The staff is what makes it such a great place-everyone is so friendly and welcoming and eager to make sure you have the best time in Budapest. It's super clean, well-maintained and has a really good location, almost everything is within walking distance. It's also a great place to meet people as the hostel has activities planned every night. I can't recommend this place enough, staying here will make Budapest all that more amazing.

I was only gone for a week and I found myself back at Carpe, so that should speak for itself! Amazing staff, location, facilities, and anything else you can think of. Stay here!!

Best everything you can imagine. Came to party and see the city and this place allowed us to be able to do both to the maximum. Definitely stay here if you're looking to have the best time of your life with the best hostel staff in Europe.
