Amazing people, good location, feels like home. Don't come here if you can't stand the constant parties, this is a party hostel, keep it in your mind. If you are up for it, you are going to have the best time as everyone is treated like family. <3

A fantastic hostel to travel to with a group of friends for nights out and meet really cool people people. Stayed there three times. I stayed in quite a few hostels and this is by far my favorite. Planning a trip back there soon. The staff are awesome and good fun. Make sure you go on one of the pub... More

...and I'm serious. Unless you pass out drunk. Saturday the club doesn't close until 9am. This is basically a nightclub they've stuck a few bunk beds in a side room and turned the bass up. Location wise its good and clean(ish). One of the showers is fine but the other one was pretty disgusting. If you are on a bender... More

Could I start by saying our stay was excellent until we encountered one particularly awful member of staff on our last night. We came in from our last night at 3am and proceeded to the common room area for further drinks (which we had done the previous two nights without issue). The female member of staff was asleep on the... More

I am writing this review because I feel that the others do not adequately reflect what you will experience at this hostel.

It's situated above a club, which they advertise as a pro, but after walking around the club you will realize... More

Instant Groove was the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The staff was beyond wonderful. Everyone was helpful and always willing to answer questions or offer recommendations. The noise is not a problem, if you have earplugs it is not even noticeable while going to sleep. The overall vibe of the hostel was really welcoming and felt like I was... More
