I had a great time staying at Carpe Noctem. The staff are super friendly and the ambiance is just right. I'll definitely stay here again next time I'm in Budapest.

Look, the only thing you need to know is that you have to book to get out of here before you arrive in Budapest because this place is so much fun you will try to escape all obligations and live here forever. Missing this place times a bazillion. Will be back ASAP.

Cannot recommend this place enough! Consider the staff your second family and the hostel your ticket to everything fun going on in Budapest! If you are looking for a good time but also a comfy place to relax (be hungover) and learn a lot about the city please stay here! It's the best of the party hostels and is just downright amazing!!! All the charm of a home away from home :)

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.
