I had the greatest time staying at this hostel. The hostel facilities are great and clean. Location is perfect, right in the centre of the city. But what really makes Vitae shine brighter then anything is the staff. They go above and beyond to make sure your comfy and having a great stay. They also come out and party with...

I stayed 5 nights at Carpe Noctem Vitae and those are nights I will never forget. Budapest is such an amazing city and my stay at the hostel made my stay there so comfortable. The staff were so welcoming that they didn't even feel like staff, they felt like lifelong friends within the first day of knowing them. If I...

I left Budapest 3 days ago, and I'm already looking for excuses to miss more classes and come back. The staff aren't really staff at all, it's like staying at your mate's house who has the coolest Mum ever. She cooks and cleans and does everything for you, but after 830, she'll introduce you to all the neighbours and show...

Amazing staff with awesome recommendations for things to do, see and eat. A very welcoming, affordable and entertaining hostel. Also had the privilege of participating (and killing it) in the alcohololympics with Carpe...

By far my favorite hostel I have been. Warning, you will probably extend and re extend and extend again...or travel elsewhere and then find yourself here once again. You feel a part of a family here! There are plenty of activities that the hostel will help to set up for you during your stay. Every night of the week has...

Listen, between Myrtles dance moves and Dregs housewife prowess you really can't go wrong. Everyone at the hostel is super friendly and helpful! They give the best advice about things to do and places to eat. Definitely go to the tea houses they recommend! Obviously the night life is absolute top shelf, I'd venture a guess and say I've never...

Budapest is the most amazing city in Europe and there is no other place to stay. Vitae is amazing. The staff goes out of their way to make you feel like family. They are there to tell you everything about the city, where to eat, and what to do. They'll book any activity for you, all you need to do...

I am 100% in love with this hostel! If you are going to Budapest or anywhere in the vicinity go to Carpe Noctem Vitae! I planned on being in Budapest for a few days and stayed for 1 ½ weeks (I only left bc I had to actually fly home). Within the span of a single day it already felt...

It will give you Full of fun in your trip. It is actually party hostel. If you really want privacy don't go there. If you are traveling alone but you really need some friends, go there. Lots of friends are waiting there to company you.

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you are just looking for a bed and nothing else...easy, there are thousands elsewhere in the city.If you want something more from a hostel, from the people who work and live there, if you want a community, an experience, and an atmosphere bursting with creativity, excitement and fun... welcome to Vitae, welcome to real hostel life.At the bottom of this page you can get a taste of some upcoming events in the city. We deal in all realms of nightlife here in Budapest so get ready to get involved because there's always a lot happening.As part of the Budapest Party Hostels Brand we are the least wild of the three, we still go out every night drinking, but also offer you a range of different options, and have a great environment with chill areas if you want to stay in too. We offer clean,. bright spacious rooms, with hard to beat security and the real difference, attentive and caring staff who actually take an interest in all parts of your stay in Budapest.60% of our total floor space is sociable space so that there is a ton of room for you to chill, or play games, meet people or watch dvds. We have a large modern kitchen, for you to cook for yourself or for us to cook for you, as we have in house cook-ups almost every night for just the cost of the ingredients.We know that Budapest is not just about tours, castles and churches which is why we organise something every night with a group program, but we also can suggest other cultural or party ideas for you as we like to keep ourselves with the finger on the pulse of what is going on in the city. ... more   less
