The greatest time I've had in Europe was while staying at carpe noctum. The worst thing about this place is having to leave - the staff are some of the nicest people I've ever met and the hostel itself has everything you need. I'd recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a great time, and party a lot while in Budapest.

Had an amazing stay at Carpe Noctem. As soon as we arrived we were greeted and told all about what to see in the city (with some great recommendations). Then in the evenings the staff would take us out and show us the Budapest nightlife, with something going on each night! A great social atmosphere, made especially by the fantastic staff who would go out of their way to ensure you have a great stay. If you're heading to Budapest, don't look anywhere else. Hope to visit again next time I'm back!


Had a great time staying at Carpe Noctem, wish it was longer! Friendly staff, always activities planned day and night and guests ready to party and explore. Would definitely suggest more than 2 nights, so much to do!


Easily the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Basically everything you could ever want in a hostel and the atmosphere deserves 120%. Shout out to Salty, Coltrane, Teabag and Sly all the best staff and people in general! They just create this awesome friendly vibe where you really do feel like you're staying at a friends place the whole time.


We came to this hostel as a couple and had the best time of our lives. The place makes you feel like you're living in with a bunch of friends and isn't your average hostel experience. The staff are so lovely and accommodating and are always looking for ways for guests to have the best time possible. What also set Carpe Noctem apart from other hostels was the amount of additional services they offer without charge. We found it so hard to leave... cant recommend this place enough!


A great place for solo travelers to meet people.


Highly recommend this hostel for any solo travellers going to Budapest. The staff are all wonderful, the beds are comfy, events every night to have a good time.
