Best hostel I've stayed in! Super friendly staff and sociable visitors allowed the hostel to really feel like home away from home! Comfy bedding with hammock and sofas to chill in after a long day of walking around beautiful Budapest! Close to the centre meaning it's just a short walk to sites! Really great value for money! Safe and secure...

Very good location, there are bars and clubs on the same street and good public transport links but it's still quiet enough to sleep at night. I came in late February when there wern't many guests so I had had the dorm to myself on most nights. Dorms are spacious with large lockers and sofas, wifi works well and there's...

We stayed from Monday till Saturday in a 6-bed room. The staff is friendly and helpfully. Be aware: this is not a part hostel. Met some chilled people from all over the world. You can find a lot of bars,kepabs, backerys etc just around the corner. The next metro station is a 5 minute walk away. Everythings clean and in...

Me and 3 friends sleep in the hostel during 2 nights. We booked a room with 6 beds but we were alone in the room, the staff was so nice and helpful, everything was clean and it is a calm place. I hardly recommend it, all was amazing!

My sister and I stayed at The Groove for Christmas and it quickly became our home away from home! The staff cooked a lovely Christmas dinner of traditional Hungarian food and we shared it with the other hostel guests. The vibe was super chill and comfortable. We always looked forward to coming home to our warm and cozy hostel after...

The hostel is in an old building. Don't worry, it still has a lift. Centrally located too, most of the sites are walking distance from here. Lots of restaurants, money changers and convenience stores nearby too. Stayed for three nights at a double room at the apartment. Room is spacious and clean, with a sofa, clothes hanger and speaker.

Small hostel for relaxed days in Budapest. Few rooms available making it more like a big house with many guests than a loud hostel. Staff friendly and willing to serve your customised needs. Location great and not loud in the same time.

The hostel is set in a beautiful location, central enough to access the city but with enough security and peace to get a great nights sleep. The staff there were extremely helpful and relaxed. The hostel had a really homely vibe, each bunk bed also featured curtains which is a great touch. The rooms also had sofas and hammocks and...

This place for me felt like a fifth storey apartment. It was very homely. There are only two or three rooms for guests to stay in. My room had a hammock, sofa, and balcony with an exquisite view of the city. There is a kitchen and fridge for everyone's use, a tour desk promoting lots of parties and activities and...
