Very dirty and not at all how it was advertised.

Its a great hostel. My friend was sick the whole time, still loved it. The staff were friendly and helpful. great place to meet People and the staff sells tickets to upcoming Events at the front desk which is very helpful. It is on top of a loud Club so its hard to sleep if you want to take a night off

Hostel had a very unique vibe, that made for a very chill and friendly atmosphere. Combined with the awesome staff and location, Instant Groove is a fantastic place to stay, with a good time guaranteed.

Great hostel for partying! Situated above Budapest's biggest & best ruins bar, don't stay here if you're not down to party every night, as the music keeps the rooms vibrating until 6 in the morning. But if you're here to party, look no further! awesome atmosphere, helpful staff & a great location

Instant Groove is THE place if you're looking for an amazing staff (read: second family), a great time in Budapest, and a party. Hands down the best hostel I've ever stayed in. I met amazing travelers and locals through this place and I will be staying here again. If you don't want to party or meet people, don't stay here. If you want to meet interesting people and have a crazy ass time, this is the place for you.

So happy I came and stayed here. Being above a night club means you're in for a good time! Don't expect any sleep until 6am but that was never a problem as I didn't come to Budapest to sleep. This place was so much fun I can't recommend it enough!

Great staff and a welcoming vibe. Great for guests to hang out or stay up all night with the club below.

One of the best hostels ever. If you don't mind the noise until 6 am (or don't mind using ear plugs) this hostel offers a great atmosphere at a really, really good price. Definitely will recommend to anyone i know staying in Budapest.

Instant is such a cool hostel IF YOUVE BEEN TO HOSTELS BEFORE. If this is your first hostel I can garuntee you'll be scared off. We loved it because the atmosphere was awesome, it was so easy to meet people and you didn't have to worry about getting home after a night out because everything was under a 20 minute walk. The rooms are comfy and the kitchen works but there's no mugs or glasses. The bathroom doors need a little work... All in all, if you like hippies, this is the place for you.

We loved it here!! Such a cool atmosphere inside the hostel. Very open.. You become friends with every guest staying there. It's on top of a huge club so good luck sleeping being, but when you are staying here you won't want to sleep anyways. The staff was always very helpful when we had any questions. There is a big kitchen plus a fride inside of our room. I loved the little terrace. This hostel really has a great vibe. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Loved this place!! We stayed in an 8 bedroom dorm and became good friends with everyone in our room by night and hung out with them all weekend!! If you're looking for a fun place to stay with great community, I definitely recommend this place!! Thankfully they give you earplugs at check-in...

Instant Groove! was AWESOME! The staff was friendly and welcoming, the fellow travelers were all looking to have a good time, and the club below was great. It was clean and I never worried about the safety of my belongings. Be warned that it is above a club and so it is loud until 6am but we were out partying until then so it was never a big deal. The only thing that I saw could be improved is new cookware in the kitchen; some of the pan handles were falling off.

Sweet place to stay if you are keen to party, as it's right above a ruin bar! Always tunes playing in the hostel, set up to youtube so everyone gets a pick. Staff were good, always someone round, rooms were huge with lockers. Nice tidy place with a kitchen and fridge aswell. And also allowed to bring you're own drinks into the common room. Full recommend stayin here.

This place was soooo much fun. Met so many great people and partied till dawn everyday. You have to because the place vibrates until 5:00am. Also, it looks a tad sketchy when you arrive and you'll question your choice to stay there.....DONT! So much fun!

A place where you won't get any sleep at all. But there is no sense in sleeping while you are being in Budapest over the weekends!
