Awesome hostel With The coolest staff and people not to mention the wonderful balcony and it's view! It's near the party places but if you'd like to take a quiet walk in the moonlight it's location is perfect! I recommend to check this place out- you won't regret it!

I stayed at this hostel for 4 nights. I can easily say that this was the best hostel I've stayed at in terms of the community vibe. It's very small but because it's small everyone is so friendly! Great location too & the staff are amazing! Highly recommend!

Great location, fair prices, friendly staff, clean facilities etc. Everything you want a modern hostel to have you will find at the Groove hostel. There was a complication with the payment that was completely my fault and the staff remained very friendly even though it took quite some time to resolve.

We fell in love with the place as soon as we entered. Where else would you find an anti-clockwise clock?! Or the day's weather report written on the black-board with child-like symbols. The place was homely and colorful as I had imagined. So much so that it had a grumpy neighbors problem. Talk about feeling at home! We've generally had... More

Very cozy place, high ceilings and wooden floors, colorful and young,central, next to the tram line which goes all night long - so perfect for partying! But most important, the staff - all of them, make you feel like home, always eager to help and give tips for any kind of taste in the city. Only negative could be that... More
