What a week!! Only been back a couple days and already planning our return to Vitae! The hostel was so central and easy to find and the staff were just incredible (especially Fables, Cosmo and Josh) <3 the atmosphere was always so chilled and welcoming but the building was very secure and everyone had their own locker in the dorm...

Great place to party, etc. Not all but most Staff are arrogant, 'going no where' people with huge ego's. They will try ram 'how good they are at drinking' and 'how great their little staff clique' is down your throat. Don't be fooled; there mostly 'piss weak' and are more interested in people seeing 'how good of friends they are'... More

By far the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Staff go above and beyond to make you feel like a part of the group, I've recommended this hostel to so many people. Budapest is a beautiful setting, but Vitae really makes going there worth it. Everyone there at the time extended their stay far beyond when they were set to... More

Carpe Noctem Vitae is located right in the centre of Budapest and one of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed at. It is hard to put the incredible 10 days I have spend there in words, but me and my friend had an amazing time there and did our best to miss our flight when we finally had to leave... More

This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. It is extremely social which is great for solo travellers; with the common rooms always being so lively and having jam sessions on the top balcony. The staff are what make this hostel so incredible, they make you feel apart of the family and are a whole bunch... More

I checked into Vitae with pretty high expectations as many of my friends had raved to me about its hospitality and crazy party antics! Not only were my expectations met but it has now crushed any hope of finding a better hostel to party with. Being a solo traveller,I was worried I would have a hard time meeting new people... More

I fell in love with this hostel! So much that two weeks later I'm changing my trip just to go back and stay longer. The second you walk into this hostel you are apart of the family. I promise you, you will not find a more inclusive, friendly, fun hostel than at Carpe Noctem Vitae. All of the employees are... More

Had a really sick time, met so many people, really easy to get along with. The staff are all super knowledgeable, showing me cool places to visit and explore around all of Budapest. Massive cheers to Schnitty for being real helpful and knowing how to make the most of the experience.Definitely the best hostel so I've stayed in so far,... More

Today I am on a bus to Vienna from Budapest and already miss this hostel. Even though I stayed for 3 nights it was genuinely sad to leave. Josh the beautiful blonde Aussie (if you're looking for him just look for someone who resembles Ellen degeneres) changed our lives for the better. He is just absolutely incredible. He cared so...

Stay here if you want to meet people and have a good time. Every night is another great experience, led by charismatic hostel workers who can connect on the same level as the travellers that come here. The rooms are cleaned daily and the beds are comfy enough. The whole of the hostel is maintained very well with multiple kitchens... More
