If you're looking for somewhere to party, meet other awesome travelers, but also still be able to get a decent night/morning of sleep then this is your Budapest hostel. I booked the 4 bedroom dorm and when I walked into my room it actually smelled GOOD! This is a miracle in any party hostel. And my bed was comfortable, meaning...

I stayed at Vitae for 9 nights and had an incredible time! Highly recommend it! Vitae hosts events every single night and the staff are like a family welcoming travelers from all walks of life from all over the world. Many guests only plan a few days and extend their stay because it's such a trip. There's also access to...

It still seems like a fairy tale but it is all so vivid in my mind. The people there were so nice and outgoing it made me question why I am not normally living with 11 other people in the same room in my daily life. Budapest now has a great place ın my memory and its all because of...

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Facilities are good (decent beds, clean toilets, free breakfast food, equipped kitchen, good wifi, lots of common areas) but the staff are what make it. They are all incredibly friendly and outgoing, making everyone feel like family from the beginning. They organise many activities everyday and go out of their way...

Always come to Vitae as a solo traveller and leave with a bucket load of new friends. Drinking games every night guarantee noone is left out of the party. Staff are amazingly good fun and helpful when youre stuck. The atmosphere inside the hostel is very open and friendly. Plenty of places to chill, cook, clean yourself, watch films and...

We stayed here for a few nights in September, it's in a great area, close to most attractions. The hostel has a great common area, the beds and rooms are comfortable with a great party atmosphere! Staff (especially Fables) are always friendly and helpful and get you involved.

Staying at this hostel made our Budapest trip. We were checked in by Fables The Legend of Vitae. Our original 3 night stay turned into 5 nights, which turned into 8 nights. We just couldn't get enough of Budapest and the atmosphere of the hostel. The staff of Vitae are all amazing and our time in Budapest would not have...

The best hostel ever! The staff here are amazing. The atmosphere here is unbelievable--nothing like it. You feel so comfortable right off the bat. Big shout out to Fables; I've never met someone so willing to help.

This hostel is one of the best I've been to so far. As soon as my friend and i walked through the door we were treated like instant friends/family and everybody was very welcoming, we struggled to work out who actually worked there majority of the time because everyone was always having so much fun. The place was super clean...

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
