First off 10/10. I love this place! I went to Vitae because of a recommendation from some friends (because I haven't really done the hostel thing before). When I arrived, I was greeted by so many friendly faces, staff members and guests. They invited me to do so many activities/events that by the end of my stay I didn't feel...

Stayed last week with a mate and despite it not looking much walking past on the street due to it being on the top floors of a residential block behind the high street we couldn't have asked for a better time! Staff always got people staying there involved with plans for nights out which made it very welcoming. Also found...

We really enjoyed our time in this hostel! The staff members were so incredibly lovely and were always keen to help and support us! Shout out to Grinder and Lead as well! Also, great wifi 👍🏼. The walk in to the centre was really close and a recommendation from Sweats for the Hummus bar was a great shout! Myrtle blessed...

Everyone that I met was welcoming and was excited to make some friends and go out together on the activities organised by the hostel during the day and night. The beer bike in...

Wow! What an experience! This place was the perfect balance of a party hostel and a hostel with great family vibes. The staff did a great job of bringing everyone together for phenomenal activities every night, and I met loads of awesome people not only staying with Vitae, but also their partner hostels. The location is top notch; easy to...

I stayed here with a few friends in Feb. The facilities were great; spacious rooms, clean facilities and the friendliest of staff! They were always around to answer questions, offer suggestions and were always keen to participate. I couldn't recommend these guys more.

This was my third time back in Budapest and boy, Vitae did not disappoint. The facilities were clean and the common areas are super spacious that makes it incredibly easy to play drinking games- which you will be doing a lot of, and to meet new people. The staff made an exception to make sure all of the guests had...

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
