This hostel was amazing. The staff was fantastic and staying here was like staying with a group of friends. There are events organized every night, which makes it super easy to meet people and is the perfect place for solo travelers. Definitely an emphasis on partying, so if you are looking for a relaxing place to stay, this is not it. But, if you are looking to have a good time and meet some cool people, this is totally your place. I cannot wait to return to Budapest and stay here again!

Looks like that half of the people lives there and they allow you to go out with them but they are not really friendly. Luckily the new people that arrives are great people and you won't be alone, but if you look for real party hostel there are better options for sure.

Carpe noctem is an awesome place to stay if u are travelling solo and want to party in budapest. Every night the hostel crew takes the guests to some party or pub crawl and everyone is really sociable and welcoming, great atmosphere. Only bad thing is that they always leave really early, at 20:30; (however u can meet up with them later, that's what i did) also the places where they go are the most touristy parties packed with australians, i barely met any hungarians at my stay.

If you want to party this is the place. I guess... I had Lost my soul here over Sziget festival. :) The staff made the stay awesome and were really helpful throughout the 3 nights I had there.

Fantastic, smaller hostel which is great for solo travelers. Really easy to meet people and the staff is awesome, super helpful and organize events every night for going out and seeing (and drinking in) Budapest. Even though its a party hostel there is a noise curfew every night which is nice for when you do need to sleep. Noone should spend all night drinking in a hostel in Budapest anyways, go explore the city!

Far and away the best hostel I've ever stayed in! Loved every minute in Budapest and wished we could have stayed longer. The staff are so laid-back, friendly and helpful. Great location, amazing atmosphere. The PERFECT hostel. Wish I could go back tomorrow! STAY HERE.

Easily the most fun I've ever had at a hostel. It's a smaller hostel, so it felt like renting an apartment with a bunch of your really good friends. It was in a good location near some great restaurants that the staff were happy to point out. Also, If you like to party the staff will take you out at night i.e. to a thermal spa party! And, if you don't -- I never had any trouble falling asleep. Great for solo travelers. My only regret is that I didn't stay longer! Two days was not enough!

Incredible spot, really friendly and helpful staff, very social atmosphere, while I was there I heard more than one person say it was one of the best hostels they'd ever stayed at.

If I could give the staff a higher rating than just excellent, I would. I stayed at Carpe Noctem OG for a week and I wish I could've stayed there forever. All the staff, Tom, Andy, Coltrain, Anna and Jaime made sure you weren't just a guest who stayed there for your euro trip, but they made sure you were part of a family. The staff made sure to take you out every night, and if you wanted to have a quiet night you had that chance as the hostel itself was cleared out of all the partiers by 9PM.

So much fun! I love that the hostel is so careful about not allowing group bookings larger than 3 people. That way, you really get to know the other people in the hostel and they always have great activities for every night of the week. Great place to stay if you want to socialize but all the activities leave the hostel at 9PM so if you need to chill the eff out, you're able to do so—great team and am glad I stayed!

Great hostel to stay at if you want to party! Staff were very welcoming and friendly, and would join in on the nightly events. Great atmosphere and the staff were always willing to help with any problems I had, and gave the best recommendations for things to do during the day. If you're heading to Budapest I would highly recommend this hostel!

Fun, friendly and social hostel and is perfect for the solo traveler. All staff went above and beyond to make me feel at home and involve me in social activities in the evening. Had lots of fun with the staff and other guests. The small hostel feels intimate like you are guests of the staff who are obviously all great friends. Really nice atmosphere. Central location for exploring the city. Cute little hostel.

Perfect for partying and meeting people, located in a historical house with huge ceilings. Unfortunately the facilities are a bit rundown, the rooms are a bit short on plugs, and there's no shelf/light near each bed.

Amazing hostel couldn't recommend this place more. Super friendly staff in a great location, all the staff take you out each night but no one ever gets pressured into go out. Once again I had an amazing time so just book it and do it.

Amazing hostel. Small enough that you get to know everyone really well which is perfect for solo travellers or those in small groups. Tom, Anna, Odds, Jaimee, Coltrane, Andi and all the rest of the staff make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. They organise great group nights out every night and were a great help with any information we wanted about things to do during the day. I would recommend anyone to stay in this hostel - I will definitely be back!

Awesome hostel if you are looking to party. They have bad ass stuff to do every single night. Staff and other travelers are all cool and looking to have a good time. Odds and Coltrane, y'all kill it. Wish we could have stayed for the bath parties but this hostel is definitely the place to stay if you want to see the wild side of Budapest.
