About The Groove Hostel

The Groove offers comfort, quality and style to make sure you enjoy Budapest and make the most of your stay. Cleanliness is an absolute must for us and our orthopedic mattresses will make you sleep like a baby so you can be fresh and ready for your adventure in the city the next day.

24-hour reception by our helpful local staff means your needs are always taken care of, and you will never be short of information on what to see and do here. In case you prefer finding your own info you can go online anytime on our computer or use the wireless network, all for free. If you are looking for company, find a cooking partner in the fully equipped kitchen, hang out with fellow travelers in our lounge or watch a movie in our cozy TV-corner. In addition to the lounge area, all our spacious rooms offer chill out areas for you to enjoy the beautiful view and make new friends.

The Groove is located in the very heart of the city in what is probably the nicest area for travelers and locals alike. Just 3 blocks from Nyugati train station, the center of public and long distance transportation and 2 blocks from the Danube river. You are no more than a 10-minute walk from anywhere you may want to go including the main tourist attractions such as the Parliament, the Basilica or Margaret Island, as well as great nightlife and shopping areas plus some hidden treasures of the city that only we can tell you about...
Our building features one of our favorite cinemas in town with foreign movies and original sound, with a non-stop restaurant just across the street and 3 grocery stores and a dozen cafes and bars within 2 blocks.

Be careful, a stay at The Groove is so pleasant you will not want to leave!

Our one and only house rule is: FEEL AT HOME!
This means live how you would live at home: be respectful of your neighbors, other guests and our staff, keep clean, and in general, be the kind of person you would be happy to host.
Though we have no restrictions, regarding alcohol consuming in the hostel, or a curfew please note that this is not a party hostel, you cannot be loud after 10pm, if you wish to party hard all night you need to go out.
