I really enjoyed my stay at Carpe Noctem Vitae! The staff was super nice and they went out of their way to help you. They also made an effort to get to know you and made sure everyone in the hostel knew everyone. If you like to party this is the spot to stay. However, the hostel wasn't the cleanest but you're guaranteed the best time! The location is also perfect! The hostel is located in the center of Budapest and is near all of the bars! There are also very good restaurants located nearby.

I spent two nights in the hostel, the staff was very friendly and is very good if you want to meet new people I really recommend the pub crawl I think the only bad thing in the hostel is the bathroom because is not too clean

This is a great hostel for young adults wanting to go out heaps and spend their days hungover and eating awesome food around the city. The staff is great and filled with energy, and always willing to help you out. The bathrooms need some attention, but apart from that this place is amazing to drink heaps, meet amazing people and come back to a nice clean safe room. If you're up for a party, but a safe environment this is perfect!

Carpe Noctem Vitae has the perrrrrfect balance of chilled out socialising during the day, & awesome party vibes at night! The facilities were bright and colourful, and the staff were brilliant beyond words. From the moment we arrived, Hamish, Fables, Santi & Clover really made us feel at home! The organised activities each night make it so easy to meet people, and have epic night out after epic night out. Basically, it was so good that I'm coming back to Budapest in a week! Seeya soon ;) x chels

Such an amazing hostel, so sad I had to leave! Awesome communal atmosphere, everyone is so friendly and welcoming, and loads of organised activities make it really easy to make friends and get involved. Had a kitchen which was handy, and plenty of chill out spots. Cleanliness prob not the greatest, but it's a party hostel so to be expected

Such a great hostel!! Defiantly a party hostel but also room to relax and unwind of need be!!! Staff are all amazing, especially Milhouse (but can someone please buy him some glasses). The hostel has everything you need and there is even multiple 24hr kebab and pizza joints at very close vicinity, even right next door!!! Highly recomend!! A++++ "I'll be back"

Positively the greatest hostel experience of my life. If you want to party and make friends for life then Vitae is the place to stay. Fables will make you feel like a super hero, Shosh will melt your heart, Hamish will make you smile 4 days, Slips will show you how to use ice cubes and you will want to marry Clover. Best staff, best parties, best hostel in Budapest. Good luck trying to leave ;) love you all.

The staff here really make this place amazing. They organize activities EVERY single night, including free options EVERY night. During the daytime they'll also hook you up with some awesome activities in Budapest. They welcome you right away, so that most people end up staying weeks or months (!!). For a party hostel, it's also very easy to come back and sleep, so it's a great balance. Shoutout also to Fables, even though his winepedo performance was subpar during my stay.
