Carpe Noctem is hands down the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Because the hostel is so small, you really get to know all the guests and the staff well. It was my first time traveling solo and I felt completely comfortable and safe there, not to mention had an amazing time. It is a party hostel, so expect to be taken out every night. Each night has something different planned, and you get to party with their other sister hostels as well so you get to meet so many more people. Everyone leaves around 8:30, so it's quiet if you want to stay in and go to sleep early. I had read from reviews that most people end up extending their stay, so I booked 5 nights thinking it was enough...STILL ended up staying an extra two nights! It's true what everyone's saying - it is definitely just like staying at a friend's place. I can't wait to come back!

I had no idea the nightlife in Budapest would be so intense, and it impressed me how these guys were so enthusiastic to head out and party pretty much every night.

The staff are all very friendly, and are happy to direct you to the landmarks during the day... If you have any energy left.

Would definitely stay again.

I had an amazing stay at this hostel while I was in Budapest. I was originally only booked for one night but they made it work for me to be able to stay for 5 nights (even though they were over booked). The rooms are very clean and the beds are really comfortable as well. As soon as I got there, I got a map with all the places to go and recommendations for inexpensive, yet excellent meals! Every night they have an event that is just AWESOME and easily encourages travelers to hang out and meet each other, not only at this hostel but also their sister hostels. For any issue or need, they are right there for you and will do their best to ensure that you have a great time. I would whole heartedly recommend this hostel to anyone.

I stayed at this hostel for two nights when I was in Budapest. I really enjoyed staying at this hostel. The staff was amazing and helpful. When you sign in you get a map and a run down of the city. They were very good at answering questions, helped me get a cab, etc. Staying in this hostel was seriously like crashing at a friend's house. The staff runs really awesome party type events every night, which I liked because it meant you didn't have to spend time trying to find where you should hang out. It was comfortable, but not top notch as far as facilities are concerned. Despite this, the beds are really nice. Like...REALLY nice. Comfortable. The location was excellent, right downtown. I would definiately stay here again if I end up in Budapest. There are only three downsides to this hostel:
1. It's an OLD building. As a result things are a little run down looking. The staff was really good about cleaning and what not, but it's still and old building. I have bad allergies and I was def having some issues breathing.
2. No one mentioned this in any of the reviews I read or the hostel's website, but apparently the bathrooms are co-ed. I didn't really like that, to be honest.
3. There are a lot of solo travellers and small groups with people looking to hook up. That's not really a downside to me, I don't care, but I know that some people do. There was def some people...um...sharing beds. Like I said, not an issue for me, but it is to some people.

I had an amazing stay at this hostel, the accommodation was great but what really made it for me was the amazing people! I was unfortunate enough to have my handbag stolen whilst in Budapest and the staff couldn't of done any more to look after me! If it had to happen I was incredibly lucky that it happened whilst I was staying at carpe noctem as I don't know what I would of done without everyone there who helped me. You're made to feel like part of the family at this hostel and every night the staff will take everyone in the hostel out to party! I had some of the most fun of my life here and ended up staying way longer than I first planned! I just couldn't leave! Overall an absolutely amazing hostel, I won't be staying anywhere else in future trips to Budapest! 5*
