Instant groove was great! The hostel is incredibly clean and homey feeling, and the staff is all so friendly and helpful. If you want to party in Budapest, this is the BEST place to do it. You get discounted drinks when you stay there and it is directly over a really cool ruin pub, with tons of different bars and dance floors. Would highly recommend to anyone staying in Budapest.

This has got to be one of the best hostels ive ever stayed in, and THE best in Budapest!
The whole vibe of the place is relaxed and comfortable, everyone's easy going but also when its time to party, then its time to party!!!
The staff are the coolest bunch of maniacs youll meet in this town and they'll make your stay the funnest easiest experience you wont want to leave. Take time to hang out with them and get all the local knowledge of the best things to do on your hangover's :)
The place is always clean and sometimes quiet but the coolest place to crash in town.

Located right above one of Budapest's most awesome ruin pubs.
This is probably the best place to stay if you wanna go partying in Budapest. The cool kids at the reception can get you discounts and tell you where to go.
There are some ladies from a free pub crawl, based on tips, coming in every night to pick people up and all that kind of cool hostel stuff that you don't want to miss out.
Definitely gonna come back here :)

Room Tip: just any room is fine. cool people from all over the planet to be met.

I don't know the best way to word this, but I'll give it a shot. The staff are great, the hostel is clean, and the parties are amazing. It's right above the Instant! ruin bar. It's at a great location, easy to get anywhere in Budapest from there, and it's honestly just a nice place to be. There's always something going on in Budapest, and you can find out what it is by staying at the Instant! Groove!

Best Party Hostel with the most welcoming Staff I've ever met! The hostel is above an awesome club with 4 dance floors in the heart of Budapest. Don't forget to ask the Staff for earplugs, and you will have a great time there!
