Had the best stay at Carpe Noctem. The staff were extremely welcoming and made you feel like you were at home. The moment we walked in the door we were greeted by one of the staff members that took the time to sit down and go through all the sights and how to get there. They informed us of all the activities that were happening and made everyone feel involved. They even helped us out when we missed our night train. They go above and beyond. Highly recommend staying here. thanks guys :)

this was definitely home away from home .... Coltrane, Kat, Sly, Salty ... these guys are the best .... the best way to party up in Budapeshht is to stay with these guys ... they will drag you out to party even if you are sick! ;) .. we loved the place so much we went back to stay another night before we left back for home.... great place to meet new like minded people.. we are definitely going back there sometime soon! :D


Best hostel in Europe. Best Staff ever. Highly recommend!


Me and my friend went to Budapest on a short backpacking trip. I have been to a lot of hostels and heard about Carpe Noctem from so many people, and it didn't disappoint! The staff is SO helpful and more than willing to help you set up anything you want to do, even if they are if they are not affiliated with it. There are organized night every night, we had so much fun every night. If you like to party but also want to come home to a quiet, clean bed this is the place for you!
