Stay here in Budapest!! The staff is so friendly and helpful and will plan your trip day to night and make your Budapest experience that much more awesome by showing you some hidden and unknown places only locals would know. Their key system is the best I've seen- you should never forget or lose your key or where you are staying! This was my first hostel experience and it was great!

Best hostel in all of Budapest. Hands down. Great staff, events, family dinners, drinking games, wifi, and people. There's always someone to hang out with on the terrace or teach you how to do a strawpedo. Highly recommend staying here if you want a real Budapest experience.

One of the best hostels Ive stayed at. The best welcome greeting Ive received and the staff members are really knowledgable and informative. Events planned for every night of the week and great dinners for cheap! There is quiet time after 10pm so dont worry if you want to stay in a night. Highly recommend to travelers from all walks of life!

I can't say enough about this place. The staff and other travelers are unbelievably friendly and there is always something going on -- anything from cooking up a feast for dinner, chilling outside on the balcony, or getting ready for a big night out. I will definitely be returning and highly recommend this hostel to anyone visiting budapest.

If you ever go to Budapest and don't stay in this hostel, you miss out on life. Best place in the world to meet the most amazing people, make friends for life and have the craziest nights out. The amazing sexy staff will not only show you all the cool places to check out in Budapest, they will also cook dinner for you and take you out every single night. The second you walk in, they will make you feel at home, so at home, that you might never leave. Don't be dumb, stay at carpe noctem vitae!

The hostel is great for people that are super social and even for people that are not. They have a dynamic staff that makes a personal connection with everyone. Going out at night feels so safe because the staff take you on free pub crawls to great places in the city. The facilities are great. Kitchen is awesome. They do a great job of making everyone feel included. A very diverse and inclusive environment. Very clean Best hostel I've stayed in.

I was scared of the idea of a party hostel before staying here, but I, without a doubt, recommend this hostel to anyone. Yes, it is quite difficult to sleep and yes, some odd things may be going on in your room in the middle of the night, but it is completely worth it. They have awesome activities to do every night, and it is very, very easy to meet other people in your hostel. If your looking for a fun, social place to stay, and friends to party with at night, then this hostel is perfect.

From the moment I entered the hostel I was made to feel at home. The most friendly staff who give you a thorough introduction to the city as you walk through the door. Great location and would love to have stayed longer. By far the best hostel I've ever stayed and I am pleased to say I will be back. Facilities were excellent! There's nothing bad I could say and there's not enough characters for this review to type how great it was. Five and a half stars!

Great hostel with amazing staff that is very friendly and welcoming, had a great time with great people. They have a kitchen to cook meals which is ideal for travels looking to safe money on eating out. It is a open environment where everyone wants to be friends! The hostel plans events for everynight of the week!! Be aware it is amazing and something amazing isn't for anyone so if you don't want to experience Budapest at night choose another place. Chill with a Cyclops!!
