this hostel made me completely reevaluate our experience of europe. it has now made us realize that our hearts will always be with this hostel. the people are the absolute best, and they make it one of the best experiences i've ever had. i will return, along with my karaoke voice and a few flaming Lamborghini to boot. and to end it off you can not put a price on friendship and i have made friends for life from 2 days and from people all around the world you ARE MY SISTERS MY BROTHERS AND FAMILY PERIOD

one love from your family in the great white north, chris ,will, and jesse

wow, where do i start? the staff- amazing fun, so nice. cleaned the hostel every morning, the place is so clean even though its a party hostel, dedicated cleaning team. you will have so much fun here- they take you out every night, but you dont have to go out you can just chill. its easy to find and very safe ( 2 locked doors) they sit you down when you arrive and take you through all the city and show you maps etc, for around 20 minutes. never felt so welcome at a hostel, ever. oh a warning- you will not want to leave this place, its addicting man.

Easily one of the best hostels i have stayed in. Each and every staff member is fantastic and is eager to welcome you to the carpe noctem vitae family! Special shout out to Hawaii who was still happy to welcome me even at 5am when i arrived! This hostel has the best common room i've ever experienced making it super easy as a solo traveller to mingle and meet every person staying in the hostel. Great dinners, big rooms, free wifi, great security and lots and lots of alcohol = FUN!!! can't wait to go back!!

This is one hostel you will never regret staying at, immediately upon arrival the staff welcome you like you're family and give you extensive information on what sights to see in Budapest, restaurants close by and the places to go out at night. Within a day you feel like you're hanging out with close friends rather than staying at a hostel and the positives of this place are ridiculous - approx 2 euro dinner cooked for you (delicious), they take you out every night (1 place with 50 cent beers) with the 3 other 'Budapest party hostels', the place is always clean and the rooms are nice with comfy beds. Also the staff absolutely LOVE to party, which is awesome but you still have the opportunity to chill out and relax when you want. I booked for 3 nights, stayed for 3 weeks and left for one week before returning for another 2 because I missed the place so much. If I wasn't going home to Australia I would never leave. After 8 months of travelling, this is easily the best hostel I have stayed at, you cannot fault the place or the people that work here other than the fact you will also most likely never want to leave.

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
