Stayed here for about a week and it was gnarly. Everyone that works there is friendly and outgoing and they make you feel at home. You'll never be bored at this hostel as they can help you with activities for the day and they have nightly activities like open mic night or pub crawls. Whether you are with a group...

One of the best hostels I've been too! Extremely friendly and welcoming staff that help you with all your needs and tell you the best places around Budapest. I would definitely recommend staying here if you love meeting new people, seeing the nightlife of an amazing city and just generally having an enjoyable experience whilst travelling. It's extremely cheap too!

Staying here probably made our trip 10,000% better. Stayed here 4 nights- The hostel is located in the pest side and pretty much within walking distance of most places. The place was clean, there are lockers to store your stuff in the rooms and a massive kitchen on each floor for personal use. Hands down best showers i've ever seen...

Stayed here over the course of a week in Jan. Best vibe, the staff are excellent and fun! It's in a great location to access all areas of Budapest. It is a smaller hostel so you get to know everyone and the hostel workers cook a dinner for everyone every night, you play drinking games and then head out together!...

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
