Hostelworld says

Vitae hostel awarded the most popular hostel in Budapest 2019 with the Hoscars.

This sociable, party-oriented hostel offers a welcoming atmosphere with staff who are'super helpful and friendly and are on hand to include you in the activities, according to users of Hostelworld.

They host various different nightly events and dinners and one traveller told us that guests looking for a quiet night can 'hang back at the hostel and play PlayStation, use the Wi-Fi or relax on the balcony'.

Property Description

Vitae Hostel (Seize the night life!) offers the perfect balance between providing a wide range of amenities and facilities of a large hostel, but making you feel relaxed in a sociable, fun and family-esque atmosphere. Whether you are traveling alone, or part of a group, you'll immediately feel welcomed and want to stay with us longer to see what the Budapest hype is all about!

Though still participating in a different party every night of the week, Vitae represents the more relaxed, less intense atmosphere of the five hostels under the world-famous ‘Budapest Party Hostels’ group. Clean, spacious, non-smoking and secure dorm rooms are always ready for travelers in need of rest; drunk and sober alike. Our staff, which are comprised entirely of experienced travelers, have all of the best recommendations and tips to make your stay in the beautiful city of Budapest the unforgettable highlight of your travels.

And why travel, if not to make new friends along the way? Over 60% of Vitae’s floor space are dedicated common areas for you to meet & mingle with other guests over a game of cards, drinks, or the cheap family-dinners the staff put on for only the cost of the meal’s ingredients. Vitae’s 3 modern kitchens are always accessible and if you’d rather eat your meals over a good film or video game session, there’s a projector room and a snug to lounge in during all hours of the day. We have entertainment central with a darts board, table football, guitar hero, Playstation 4 and netfilx with a projector screen and even chess to stop you from getting bored.

Sight seeing and partying don’t always have to go hand in hand, but Vitae’s all staff always try and present a healthy blend of the two together every day with their knowledge of all things Budapest, historic and contemporary. Whether you’re after a romantic evening dinner cruise on the Danube river or a 6am trip to a 24hr bar in the city after a night out, the staff have been in your shoes and will happily point you in the right direction.

It won’t take long to notice the ATM, currency exchange, tram stop, bus stop, convenience store, tobacco shop, and 24hr eateries and the cheapest bars are all on the same city block as Vitae.

A week with us will include party boats, ruin bar crawls, spa parties, open mic nights, backpacker parties and much more. Of course we are flexible and open to suggestions, so you let us know what you like and we'll see if we can get the group along - and we also know all sorts of cool stuff to do during the day!

We are on three levels and have the luxury of being to able to offer a multitude of different rooms to cater to every budget and privacy request, from private doubles, twins, female only dorms right up to 12 and 14 bed dorms for the more money-conscious traveler. View House Rules

    Absolutely love this place. My favorite event was the ruin bar crawl on Friday. Did an amazing job checking me in and gave great recommendations on what to do in the city and where to eat. Joey’s Jäger train went down perfectly. Promise you’ll extend!

    Vitae was a truly incredible stay. It perfectly combines a party hostel (which they remind everyone when they walk through the door so you know what you are getting into) with great amenities (good showers, AC, and decently comfortable beds). The staff is so welcoming and definitely try to get to know everyone beyond just their name! Shoutout especially to Food, Joey, and Phoebe! If you want to experience Budapest parties and have a great place to return to at night. Vitae is the one for you!

    The best hostel I've been in, the staff was increadibly friendly and they were always happy to help you with information regarding travel around the city or any other problem you have. The location is great because its located near the centre and around different bars. The hostel also offered differnet activities throught the day and night, and adding to that, the hostel had a nice common area with a PS4 that was used to watch movies on, a pool table, a guitar and a bunch of couches and bean bag

    Pablo was a great host! Hostel rooms and washrooms were clean. Every night at 8:30 we would go out together as a group and do a certain activity such as a pub crawl on Friday nights! Would stay here again when I visit Budapest again!

    Great hostel. Great place to meet other people who are travelling. Great for young people with pre drinks and organised events each night. Staff are excellent, so friendly and welcoming and always there to help. Air con in rooms, lockers available for free - take your own padlock. Big open communal areas for meeting people etc. Highly recommend

    Great Hostel in the city centre of Budapest. Really Friendly & Helpful Staff. Kitchen is equipped with fridge,stove & oven. Light DIY breakfast is provided. The Private Single room isn't ideally located as it's right on the balcony where the noise curfew from 10PM-8AM wasn't really followed and was noisy by other guests from 2-6AM on 2 consecutive nights. But it's a party hostel so wasn't too peeved. Bathroom & toilet could've been maintained a bit better but other than that good stay overall

    This hostel was very clean and very comfortable, a bonus being the air conditioning in the rooms, which was amazing in the hot weather. i was a solo traveler and the hostel existed on several levels so it didn't feel as communal as it could have done. However there were plenty of social spaces which were nice to hang out in and meet people. the hostel organises social events every evening, although they start early and often end up at retox hostel, which i didnt like. would reccomend overall.

    This hostel is great if you don’t want to see any of Budapest and just want to drink alcohol with young travellers. Not the cleanest place either. The staff here are more interested in organising the booze and partying than they are with the state of the hostel. Multiple showers ran out of hot water and the kitchen was complete mess. This place is over rated.

Vitae Hostel says

I'd say that Carpe Noctem Vitae is definitely for travellers who like to go out at night but who also enjoy seeing the city and being a tourist during the day. It's a sociable place and we've got a whole range of night-time programs, inclyding free pub crawls, backpackers' parties and party boats. I really think people like us for our community and the welcoming nature of the hostel. Every night the staff at the hostel cook dinner for their guests and get everyone involved before heading out at night.
Since we're a party hostel we cater to travellers aged 18 to 36, solo travellers as well as bigger groups who enjoy a sociable and fun hostel. Ellen, Staff
