Had a great time staying at Carpe Noctem, wish it was longer! Friendly staff, always activities planned day and night and guests ready to party and explore. Would definitely suggest more than 2 nights, so much to do!

Easily the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Basically everything you could ever want in a hostel and the atmosphere deserves 120%. Shout out to Salty, Coltrane, Teabag and Sly all the best staff and people in general! They just create this awesome friendly vibe where you really do feel like you're staying at a friends place the whole time.

We came to this hostel as a couple and had the best time of our lives. The place makes you feel like you're living in with a bunch of friends and isn't your average hostel experience. The staff are so lovely and accommodating and are always looking for ways for guests to have the best time possible. What also set Carpe Noctem apart from other hostels was the amount of additional services they offer without charge. We found it so hard to leave... cant recommend this place enough!

Absolutely adored my stay at Carpe Noctum. Great location, amazing staff and lovely facilities. Each night the hostel had events with the other party hostels of Budapest. Loved that this hostel was one of the tamest of the 4, but still knew how to have a great time. Staff were incredibly helpful with providing advice on what to see in Budapest and what to get up to at night. And the free (yorkshire) tea was a great touch in making me feel at home. Love, loved my stay - I will be back!

Do yourself a favour and stay at this hostel! It is a cosy home away from home with the most welcoming and friendly staff who go above and beyond to make sure you have the best possible experience in Budapest. By day Carpe Noctum is a great base for a day of sightseeing or to relax on a day off. By night this hostel organises the best nights out to show off budapest's incredible night life! Thanks Carpe noctem, see you soon!

This place was AMAZING! The staff really make you feel like you're part of the family. During the day it's a chill, relaxing environment where you can listen to music and cuddle up on the couch. At night they take you out to the craziest bars/clubs/boats. I had the best time here, I am definitely coming back

I cannot even begin to put into words how awesome this hostel is. If you are having second doubts, DONT. Just go... THIS INSTANT. The staff are beyond insane, as are the rest of the guests; I really have made friends for life. Sly, Coltrane, Salty and TeaBag truly do make it a home away from home. I have been back for two weeks and have already booked my next visit!

The Hostel was an amazing experience. It was very easy to meet people and every day and night was a new adventure. Meet so many great friends that I will keep in contact with and hopefully visit. Staff helped me with what I needed and had good recommendations. Perfect for a solo traveler.

Definitely one of the best hostels you can find! All the staff are awesome, but Salty and Coltrane were particularly welcoming! Really great place to be as a lone traveller.

Great place. The staff were amazing and took us out each night. Location, cleanliness, security, all perfect. Very party oriented so it's easy to have a good time.

Amazing hostel, very friendly staff and mostly solo travellers makes for a great time. The benefit of being in with the other party hostels but not being as big means you can go out and have an epic time and still have somewhere nice and clean/quiet to come back too. Staff even folded my washing. Chur!

Best hostel I have ever stayed in. It was more of a home than a hostel. The atmosphere was so great and the best staff I've encountered. They go out of their way to make you feel welcomed and organize the nightlife. But it is also more quiet compared to most party hostels so you can still rest if you need it. Never change Carpe Noctem!
