We highly recommend that you buy tickets for all public transport. Tickets are available from all metro stations, Relay shops in the basements and often from ticket machines at tram stops. A one way single ticket for the metro, tram, bus or trolleybus costs 320 HUFs. Being caught without a ticket will cost you 16000 HUFs in fines and the controllers can be very intimidating. At the airport you can buy tickets for the train from the tourist information desk. They cost approximately 400 HUFs.
Informations about Carpe Noctem Vitae
Carpe noctem vitae is the hostel with facilities, ambience, and soul! If you want something more from a hostel than just a bed, 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.
As part of the Budapest Party Hostels' Brand we are the least wild of the four, 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 2 large modern kitchens, 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 a finger on the pulse of what is going on in the city. If for any reason you are not interested in the evening event we plan, don't worry as we can tell you a host of other things going on in the city.
We are relaxed and chilled-out people who need to be at walking distance of everything from major sights, corner shops, supermarkets, pubs, clubs and restaurants, so we have located ourselves in the middle of it all, AND in between major public transport methods if walking is too far.
We have smoking areas for smokers on our terrace overlooking the view of the Basilica, and the rest of it non smoking for non smokers. We not only offer free tea and coffee, but we will also sell you cheap beer and cider in case taking the lift downstairs is too much for you.
We have entertainment central with a darts board, table football, guitar heroes and even chess to stop you from getting bored.
But more importantly, we know Budapest inside out and love it, so we want to share why we love it with you. We will spend a long time with you on check in (after we have made you a cup of tea or coffee which is always free) telling you all about what we love, and asking you what you might love. We'll point out all the cool places, places with discounts, sights to see, things to enjoy, culture to soak up and parties to not remember in the morning!
A week with us will include karaoke nights, backpackers' parties, live music with open mic nights, mad epic pub crawls, party boats, bath parties, cheap drink nights and much much more. Of course we are flexible and open to suggestions, so you let us know what you like and we'll see if we can get the group along.
Carpe Noctem Vitae is suitable for single travellers and small groups who like to meet people, but also has the space for larger groups as well, as long as you want to get involved!
We are all native English speakers, live in staff who are sociable, friendly, open, and can't wait to meet you!
Regrettably, due to previous experience, we can no longer accept bookings for people over 36. If you have booked and are outside this age, please contact us and we will help find you alternative accommodation.
*We do not accept stag/ bachelor/ bucks parties here but alternatively you can book one of our sister hostels Grandio Party Hostel or Retox Party Hostel.
