Such a great hostel! The accommodations were the best I've had so far (I've had 4 diff hostels through hostel world) and all the people there are so friendly! Miss you guys already! You will never have a dull moment and be among so many friendly people!
This hostel was fantastic, thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would recommend it to anyone who wants to party yet needs a bit of downtime too! thanks to all the staff that made it an unforgettable experience!
It feels like home, good location,,. Great for lonely travelers! nice people, if you want to party hard yo can do it, if you want to sleep yo can do it as well.
I was disappointed with the facilities of the hostel. The showers did not always have hot water, one of the showers flooded, and the bathroom was very small. In addition, the kitchen was small and there was no dining room where people could eat together. The hostel has a laid back atmosphere, but I found it difficult to meet people. As a positive, the staff are friendly, informative, and happy to answer questions.
Very nice hostel, well located and clean. Very friendly staff also.

Just go one of the Carpe Noctem hostels and leave your party plan to those guys. All you have to concern is can you postpone your flight/bus or not because you don't wanna leave Budapest with Carpe Noctem people :-)
Great cheap hostel with a really active environment to meet new people and explore budapest's party nightlife. Would definately go back
This is a nice, small hostel that has a friendly, home like atmosphere. It's a bit rough around the edges compared to some other places but they make up for it by having an organized event every night. It should be pointed out that these events are a bit commercial in nature and are combined with several other hostels to form very large groups of travelers hanging out together.
This hostel was amazing! The staff are the friendliest and most helpful I have ever encounted on my travels, they really make you feel like family.
I had the most amazing stay here. The staff is so much fun and super inclusive; they really made me feel comfortable and gave us so many suggestions on how to make the most of our time. The nightlife was crazy and the staff goes all out to make sure their guests have a good time. Can't wait to go back!

I have stayed in over 25 hostels in the last 2 months and this is the first I have wanted to actually give a review on. This place is awesome. As a solo traveller was incredibly easy to meet new people, the staff were amazing and went out of their way to help, good location, the place is clean and there was always something fun to do at night. I cannot recommend Carpe Noctem enough and if I make it back to Budapest I know where I will be staying.
Amazing hostel! Recommended it to so many people already. Fairly small place so you get to know everyone very well, perfect for solo travellers. Chilled out atmosphere in the day but they meet up with the other hostels in the chain at night for great nights out. Great location, staff make you feel like you practically live there, to the extent that almost everyone ends up extending their stay. Big thanks to all the staff - Suze, Tom, Rikki, Jaimee, Rosie + Cheesman for a fab time! I'll be back!!
AMAZING time at Carpe Noctem. Feels like staying at a friend's house because the staff members are so young, friendly, and sociable. Small hostel with 1 main common area, where everyone pretty much has to meet each other. Rooms are spacious, with kitchen and laundry on site. Only downside is there's only 1 bathroom w/ 2 showers and 2 toilets. Staff take us out every single night to pub crawls, mixers with other hostels, boat parties, bath parties, etc. FUN place to stay for young travellers
Carpe Noctem!! I love you so I love you so! la la la!! In all seriousness though the good folks that run this charming hostel do a ruddy good job, I felt like I was one of the family you know? So much fun I didn't want to leave! Imagine that!! Cheers Carpe crew you made Budapest Epic!!
Fantastic hostel with great atmosphere. Easy to meet people, staff so friendly and enthusiastic, always something going on. A lot of fly to be had at carpe!
This is by far the best hostel I've stayed in (and I've stayed in a lot). The staff is both very helpful and a lot of fun which is a rare combination I have found. They run different events each night and they're not your normal hostel events, they're much rode fun. This is definitely a party hostel and lives up to that reputation but its also very easy to relax during the day. If you stay here, you will have a blast, meet great people, and not want to leave.
Best. Hostel. Ever.

Great hostel! The staff are awesome; they give you a good rundown on all the sites to see plus they are all just loads of fun! Would 100% recommend!!!!
As soon as I turned up the guys at Cape Noctem were more than hospitable. The team refer to their guests as friends and sincerely treat them as such. The hostel has a family feel and will ensure to include you in a number events, form family dinners, fancy dress nights, boat cruises and spa parties. Much love to the whole team... Make sure you guys hit me up when you're in Australia... Brendan...
Had a ripper time in Budapest!!! Awesome hostel with great staff, atmosphere and facilities. Arrived in Budapest a bit worse for wear but were looked after immediately.. Budapest is such a cool place during the day and staff always had something on the go for the evenings taking us to cool bars and clubs or just showing a great place to eat. Stayed 3 nights here definitely not enough so will have to come back. Thanks Carpe Noctem crew from 2 aussie blokes
