Carpe Noctem

Szobi Utca 5

Description

Do you want to feel like you are staying at a mate's house, chilling on bean bags and drinking free tea and coffee until beer o'clock? Do you want to stay in a place that doesn't believe in hidden charges and wants to give you as much for free as possible? We’ve travelled widely and know what you want to feel comfortable.
There’s free padlock hire, free lockers, free use of our electronic staff safe, free Internet and Wi-Fi, ree towel hire and free tea and coffee – not just when you arrive, but all the time! And it’s not this European yellow label tea, either; we get the good shit imported from the UK.
Our top-floor apartment is newly renovated and we have added our personal touches. Our handmade bean bags mean you can chill wherever you want around the house. There’s also a large corner sofa to watch films on, tables to eat on or play drinking games (depending on your mood), plus murals of the sights of the city across most walls so you can decide what to see that day (if our 30-minute run-through of everything hasn't been enough info for you!).
We have a fully equipped kitchen for you to use, apart from the times when we are cooking up roast dinners, gypsy gulyas (goulash), breakfast of champions or whatever else we think the hostel needs to prepare for a good night out or to deal with a hangover!
There’s also 24-hour check-in, no curfew and very relaxed check-out times – you can check out any time you like but you can never leave!

“Lots of fun”

Rating: 4 Reviewed on August 06, 2018

Lots of drinking games and big nights out, and a lot of laughs; definitely a younger crowd on average (some older too of course). It’s quite a small hostel, unlike the other party hostels, so a...

Favorite place I've been to in Europe and I wanted to stay forever. I went back several times and it wasn't even enough. It was so fun and comfortable and the staff rocked my world. The activities...


“Best solo experience”

Rating: 5 Reviewed on June 20, 2018

Carpe Noctem is not a place for the weak of heart or liver. That being said, it is an incredibly fun hostel experience that has a crowd of people mostly in their 20s. The staff are fun, informative...
