I have never written a review before but this hostel deserves one. Easily the best hostel ive stayed at great vibe amazing staff, you cant not have a great time. STAY HERE!
The second I walked in I wanted to leave. Dirty, carpeted floors, muddy shoes in bins, sticky tables, beer bottles everywhere.. None of the bathrooms had toilet paper, people were half naked sleeping together on the couches.. The fridge REEKED of death. The staff is super nice and fun but this is a straight up frat house. Party hostels should still be clean, this was just gross. I felt so dirty.
Probably one of the best hostels I've stayed at along my travels through Europe, the staff created such a good atmosphere I ended up having to extend my stay loved it so much!! Every night there is something on I had such a good time did not want to leave thanks for the memories maybe ill be back one day!! From your lover Webb!!! :)
would probably go out on a limb and say this is the best hostel i've stayed in over my past 3 months in europe. the staff were super super friendly and so keen to help with any questions or queries you might have. the atmosphere is fantastic and the organised evening activities are mad fun and a great way to meet people. an insane way to experience budapest!
Nice place! Party Hostel. Don't go to if do not want to party high.

BEST HOSTEL! So much fun in this hostel as the staff are not really staff, they are your friends! But not only that they know the city so well! (Swaino's check-in talk was super helpful!) We stayed in privates, it was still really easy to just go and chill in the common room areas and make loads of friends. Definitely go there if you want to see Budapest and still have a good time at night! P.S. Angry Steve and Aussie Dave - it's plAID not plADD.
Decent party hostel... the downside is that people therefore tend to come back drunk at regular intervals during the night, and even if they're not talking quite a few doors get slammed in the dorms! So good in general, but a good night's sleep not guaranteed so be wary if that's important to you.
Sweet party hostel. Also space and time to chill which some of the others don't offer. I highly recommend. Strawpedos
Staff is fun and friendly. They organize outings/parties and make dinner at the hostel each night. I'd definitely go back and recommend the place to anyone!
best hostel i have ever stayed in! Best staff i have ever come across, scrumpy, c3, shwayno, noddy every one was so nice. great bar crawls every night, you meet up with the other hostels so there are plenty of people to meet. verry clean hostel with nice places to relax. would not stay any where else!
The personnel working here were the best that I encountered on my entire trip. The atmosphere is very homey and welcoming. Caving, wakeboarding, and the Saturday pool party are musts! Made the experience 100 times better.
Best staff ever. So helpful and laid back. Yeah, it wasn't the cleanest place I've stayed at, but hey, it is a party hostel. Though as such, it was surprisingly quiet come nighttime, which was appreciated.
This is a great hostel if you want to be sociable and party! The events organised through the hostel were lots of fun and the boat party is a must. Rooms and bathrooms were decent. No breakfast but you can pay for dinner cooked by the staff. Location was good with the majority of sights within walking distance. The wifi wasn't too bad and it worked in our room. We recommend this hostel!
By far the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The staff was amazing in helping you find things to do regardless of the time of day. Atmosphere was amazing, the common spaces were perfect for meeting other travelers and having a great time. Definitely recommend.
Stayed at carpe noctem vitae with a group of 3 guys for 8 nights, extended my stay and still didn't want to leave. The staff are what makes this hostel the best I have ever been to, they don't seem like staff but more like mates because you get pissed with them every single night. If you are missing home you can have a kick of the sherrin with C3, he does tend to miss targets though. PS: Boyzone sucks at strawpedos and doesn't even finish them
Amazing fun. Made my stay in Budapest something i will never forget. Great and friendly staff, nice spacious rooms and planned our nights out perfectly.

Very friendly and helpful staff. VERY laid back atmosphere. Could have been cleaner but staff organise nights out every night for guests.
The location of the Hostel is excellent, staffs are very friendly. Bathrooms are need to clean more, but over all a very good experience while in Budapest. People should definitely book for their pleasant stay at Budapest travel.

BEST HOSTEL I'VE STAYED AT IN EUROPE! STAY HERE & NEVER RETURN HOME. Stay anywhere else in Budapest & you won't experience the city to the fullest. Why? Coz the staff are EXCELLENT at what they do BEST- PARTYING & being ridiculously good looking (C3). Worried about what to do at night? BOOM. They have an event planned EVERY night for you. Wanna be soft & stay in bed to nurse that hangover? POW. Comfiest beds. Wanna wash the sin away from last night? WHAMMY. Clean showers. Common room is the BEST
This hostel is the best I've stayed at! Amazing staff, comfy beds, nice bathrooms (mostly on the 3rd floor), and near the Oktogon which leads you anywhere in town! There is always something to do, and there's a really chilled homey atmosphere, so you don't always have to go hard...but you're not gonna want to miss out. Thanks Angry Steve for finding me a bed so I could stay an extra night too! I would have stayed an extra week! I highly recommend and would stay there again anytime!
