Everything at the hostel was absolutely spot on! Had everything you need...fully equipped kitchen, great common areas and a disco shower. Definitely stay here if you want a great party - different events every night. The staff (especially Jax) were amazing and helpful. Would stay here again for sure!

Very very socialable hostel that organise events every night & cook meals. Rooms don't have en suites and the communal showers have a bit of mould in but nothing too bad. The hostel doesn't have cleaners and is cleaned by the staff there already so it's not too spotless. Locks on the doors don't seem to work too well either as staff just kept roaming in or even staying in our room. Very helpful though and would recommend it if you're into party hostels!

You pay for what you get here. Your stay is cheap for a reason-- place is filthy. It's also run mostly by faux-hippie Austrailians who run around bare foot and shirtless. Sure they want to cull an atmosphere of "laid back" and "cool". The reality: staff are unorganized 20somethings who don't know if they're coming or going. You'll like this hostel if you like tacky pub crawls and meeting 18-20 year old "backpackers" who's only interests are getting wasted. Positive: location is nice!

This is the best hostel I've ever had the pleasure of staying at. Staff and guests at Vitae are the best in the world, you quickly find yourself a part of a new family :) I literally cannot wait to go back, leaving Vitae was the most difficult thing I've had to do in a long time. -Sparkles

Whether your chilling on the porch or becoming a beer wizard with a Cyclopes, chilling with the Cosmos, or learning Gallic. All I can say is it is nothing short of an amazing time, like any place, the people make it, and the staff could not be any more amazing if there all rode giraffes :)

This was legitimately the best hostel I've ever stayed at in my travels! The staff are absolute legends and the atmosphere at this hostel is fantastic whether you're a solo traveler or in a group. There is always something fun on every night and you can count on the staff to be helpful! The location is superb, almost everything worth seeing in Budapest is walking distance.

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.
