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

    Awesome vibe at this place from the moment I arrived. My cards weren’t working as my bank had blocked them upon me landing in Budapest but the staff were willing to accomodate and help me resolve the issue. Everyone is very social and up for a chat and the events I attended were all a good time full of like minded young people. While everyone is down to party, the place also has a relaxed vibe so that you can sleep in peace without having to worry about loud music etc. Would def recommend!

    The staff were amazingly friendly, and the hostel itself offered a huge range of activities that allowed you to easily make friends. One staff member took me and my friend out alone just because she’s a g, swiper. The only regret I had was not staying longer.

    Kirsten was super helpful checking me in, even allowing me to check in early to catch up on sleep after a long night bus! Was given heaps of recommendations on what to see and do in Budapest. The rest of the staff were equally amazing! All lovely, kind, helpful, and contributing to a fantastic atmosphere at Vitae, bringing everyone together. Thanks for the great time!

    The worst thing I’ve ever done was get a ticket out of Budapest. I believe the statistic is something like 95% of guests extend their stay (I joined it). This is the most fun party hostel. Events nightly and daily, above and beyond friendly staff, M3, Ocean, Julio, everyone makes an effort to get to know you. Super easy for solo travelers to make friends and definitely a time warp week of a lifetime. Book your stay here!! Just save some HUF and don’t book your departing flight!

    Wow--Vitae is an experience as much as it is a place to stay, and a destination in itself. Cliche as it sounds, Vitae truly is a family, and the goodbyes after just four nights felt like parting with old friends. The events are superbly fun, social, and well-organized, and the staff absolutely top-notch. You will party like you've never partied before, but still get some sleep if you need it. Leave your schedule flexible, because you WILL want to extend your stay at Vitae.

    I enjoyed my stay at this hostel, even though I didn't go out partying - everyone else had left by about 8.30pm so it was lovely and quiet! They keep the bathrooms remarkably clean and they staff were very kind and helpful. It appeared that the washing machine had leaked right next to our dorm so it smelt of damp... But you got used to it. The cooker upstairs is broken. For a cheap place to stay, this is fine, I felt safe and the place was clean.

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
