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.


THE best hostel I have ever stayed at. Small family environment, amazing staff, amazing for solo travelers, good price, clean atmosphere. They make you feel very welcome (rather you party or not) and you'll make friends right away through family dinners. Don't waste time looking for other hostels in Budapest like I did, and just stay at Carpe Noctem!

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.


Great youth hostel. Staff was awesome. Very resourceful and made all guests feel very comfortable. Events every night. Fun atmosphere, but also can relax which was nice.


It was my second time at the hostel and it was better than the first one.
