This place is amazing! The staff are so friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere here is just so fun. There will never be a dull moment at this hostel, I promise! I highly recommend staying here.

Well, I certainly had a blast here! My only regret is that I didn't stay longer. And, really, Budapest itself is truly incredible. The whole team were fab and even if I didn't hang around the hostel too much, I certainly felt welcomed and part of the family! I really don't think I could have asked for any more of the hostel. Apart from maybe to relocate two storeys down... I'll definitely be back, Carpe.

The staff was very helpful when we had questions about navigating the city and also had awesome events planned every night. It's very clean and the beds are super comfortable. It's in a safe location and all of the major sights are easily accessible on foot.

This place is awesome. It might not have the greatest facilities but it is well located, the staff is great and there is always something going on. It is the right place to meet other travelers and enjoy Bp's nightlife. I look forward to staying in this hostel in the near future!

This is the best hostel! If I wasn't limited to 500 characters I would be far more descriptive, but as it is there isn't enough space to do justice to how welcoming, warm, friendly, fun, relaxed, clean, boozy or perfect this place is. Go visit it and find out for yourself!

Hands down the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Staff was incredibly friendly and knowledgable, the nights were insanely fun, and the other guests were great. We almost didn't want to leave. I cannot wait to return to Budapest. I definitely know where I will be staying.

Although my stay was very very short because of unpleasant experiences in "the wild" of Budapest, the Carpe Noctem hostel and its crew were amazing! I felt at home right from the start. The crew is really cool, very helpful and joins the travelers in partying at night. Everybody visiting Budapest should definitely visit this hostel!

Welcoming, felt like family as soon as you walk in the door! The staff were super friendly, hi-larious, extremely helpful with ideas for things to see and do. The planned party nights were rad! It's a small hostel so by the end it was sad to say goodbye as you get to know everyone. Made Budapest for us. Will come back soon :)

Excellent hostel experience - Recommend this place to everyone! Absolutely amazing staff that will answer a million questions and give heaps of tips and are really cool to hang out with! You will feel like a family and go out together but if you want a quiet night or to get some sleep it will be totally respected.

There is not enough space to leave a proper comment for how amazing this hostel is. It really does feel like you're staying at a home with a bunch of friends, you totally forget that you're supposed to be in a hostel. The staff are the coolest, nicest, most fun and helpful people you'll ever meet. The people who stay there instantly become your friends. There is no other way to enjoy Budapest than through this hostel.

If you want to have a quiet and boring time in Budapest, do not stay here. If you want to party like a rock star every night and go on epic adventures and exploring the city with new found drinking buddies/ fun staff who will help carry/be carried home with you, then this is definitely the place to be. The nights out are phenomenal, staff are great, facilities fulfill all your needs and the location could not be more central, stay here if you like to have fun and enjoy life.

Best hostel ever! Especailly for solo travellers. I loved it so much the first time that I went back 3 months later! It's amazing how much they make you feel like family from the moment you arrive! You go out every night with 20 of your new best friends and they always have something crazy organized. In the daytime you can hangout in the lounge with a cup of tea and meet up with other travellers before going out to explore! Honestly can't explain how great this place is! :)

The below reviews of this hostel are correct, this place is the best party hostel to stay in in Budapest. Yes, the staff make the place super fun. And yes, you are a fool to book any other hostel if you're even gonna think about going to Budapest, BUT I feel that everyone in these reviews have missed out the true selling point of Carpe Noctem. Located in the living area, cruelly obscured from view is the game Stratego. Possibly the best board game I have ever played. There's not enough character
