I don't know where to begin with this place. It was amazing! The staff was great. Barney, Gyula, and Daniel were the best, they were so welcoming and fun to socialize with. The place was in such a good location, not in the main party district, but a quick metro ride away. I had the best hostel visit of my... More

Great hostel. Wonderfully located. The hostel is pretty small but everyone likes to hang out and talk. Staff included so you get to know everyone in the hostel. Everything was very comfortable and spacious.

A few friends and I came to do some sightseeing in Budapest. We wanted to find a cheap place because we are students. We found the Groove Hostel. We were pretty amazed by the people there, so friendly. They welcomed us properly. The chambers are pretty big. We slept on bunk beds, but that was fine. A whole kitchen is... More

The Groove Hostel was actually a recommendation from a friend who had previously stayed there, but we took his word for it and gave it a go during our stay in Budapest. It's safe to say that the recommendation was completely justified. A true backpackers hostel with everything you would want from a hostel right in the heart of the... More

Stayed here two nights together with two friends. This was in begin of Mars and the hostel was quite empty, having to share the big dorm only with one other guy the first night and had it for ourselves the second. Great dorm with high ceiling, lockers, old stone balcony and a chill-out corner. The staff was really helpful giving... More

The staff at The Groove hostel make the trip worthwhile. There is someone on reception 24hours a day always up for a chat. They very much go out of their way to assist in making your visit to Budapest the best. Group meals are provided some nights and a great variety of daytime activities and nights out are organised.

Stayed here just after Christmas, unfortunately both me and my friend had come down with the flu on the days that we were there but the hostel was actually really therapeutic and quiet enough for us to chill out in. Its located in a really central area with cafes, coffee shops and restaurants around, the walk into the centre takes... More
