The only problem is the noise from the pub downstairs! Besides that, the place is really cool, has a nice vibe, and all staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

Instant Groove is outstanding, great hostel full of great people, from Anna on the pub crawls to techno Joe, Viktor playing live music and the bar Hintalo. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to enjoy themselves.

This place is the best! I had booked three nights here, but ended up staying for six. The staff is made up of wonderful, friendly people who are always willing to help. The location is right in the middle of the city's best bars, and has plenty of shops and restaurants right outside the door. If you want to go sightseeing, you may want to pick another hostel, as Instant is a little far from the tourist attractions. But if you want to party, this is the place for you!

One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Awesome staff and even better people. Met a ton of awesome people on our first night. The rooms were clean and the same with the shower kitchen etc. Close to transport and obviously the club down stairs. Would recommend 100%

The staff was awesome, very informative about the sites and parties and everyone was very down-to-earth. The atmosphere was great for young people traveling around europe; everything felt very friendly and relaxed. It should be obvious that you will not get a lot of sleep here, since the word party is in the name, but you won't want to since there is so much to see and do. I will definitely be recommending Instant to anyone traveling to Budapest!

Best week of my life. It's a party hostel on top of a club so don't expect to get much sleep, what you can expect is a clean hostel, bringing your own drinks and skipping lines at Instant, and a fully equiped kitchen. It feels like you're chilling at a friends appartment rather than being in a hostel, the staff is always up to help you with whatever you need and the atmosphere is amazing. I was travelling by myself but made so many friends along the way. I will definitely be back here again.

Amazing staff, and the best atmosphere to meet people... right above Instant ruin bar so location is excellent, right in the centre. It felt like home with one big family.

If you are ever planning on visiting Budapest - staying at Instant Groove is a MUST! The common rooms are so inviting, the staff are such wonderful people, and you really feel like you're being welcomed into the Instant Groove family. Best hostel I have stayed in Europe hands down!!!!

Brilliant place to stay - as long as you realise that it is a party hostel. Loved my time here. All the staff are fantastic and ready to help out or suggest anything if you need activities. They even have their own bicycles and penny boards for hire. Anna also runs a pretty rad pub crawl I heard.

Awesome party hostel! Like other hostels in Budapeste, this is a party hostel at its core, so you should know that before booking. It is situated above a 3-floor nightclub, which I found to be fantastic, but there will be some noise until the nightclub closes. (There are ear plugs available). Bathroom are good. Common areas and the rooms have a nice ''at home'' feeling. Staff is also great. Special thank you for Anna (I hoped I guess the right amount of n's) for all late night chatting!

Staff was amazing! If you want to party, then stay here. Don't expect to sleep much :) location is perfect for the city, very central. The only thing is that I wish the wifi would work better in every spot of the hostel.

If you've ever questioned yourself what a hostel experience would feel like, Then you've come across the definite example. Its wild, its crazy, its above a club and ruin bar!! The environment here begins with a hip and exuberant staff. No matter who is working, theyre filled with great stories and amazing vibes. the facilities are everything you can expect in a hostel, STAY HERE!!!! Techno Joe will blow your mind!!

I had such a great time at this hostel, all the staff were amazingly friendly, great atmosphere, good location with regards to all the clubs. As it says is a PARTY hostel so if you like to drink haterade maybe not the best place for you, Shout out to all the awesome staff!

Amazing place. Great location, lots of fun, amazing staff and people. Keep in mind - this is a party hostel. It is loud, and goes all night. They do supply earplugs which is great. Two girls left when I was there because they didn't realize it was a party hostel and couldn't sleep. Personally, I had no problem with the earplugs if I decided to have an early night. Highly recommend, its a small nice hostel - very community feel since there is only about 30 people in the hostel.

This was my favorite hostel out of my whole trip. It wasn't commercial so it just felt like I was staying at a friend's house. The people that work here are AMAZING and you end up hanging out/talking to them. Really small hostel so you truly get to know/meet everyone you're staying with. Super chill bohemian vibe, no one even locks their doors to their rooms! (don't worry there are lockers for your things). Night club downstairs so kind of loud at night, but you'll probably be out anyway!

This hostel is above an awesome club.... So be prepared you'll need ear plugs to sleep. The hostel is small and cosy with a kitchen, chilled balcony and living area. The staff were lovely and very accommodating. I thought there would be more of a party atmosphere but felt it was pretty chilled. Good for if you're partying until 5am as check out isn't until 12 ;)

This is maybe one of the best PARTY hostels in the world. One of the most visited and rare pub-nightclub of the city, with a hostel upstairs. So, if you are looking for party, this is the perfect choice. And if you are trying to sleep... well, you must use earplugs.

Great location and atmosphere and many cool people. However, part of the staff was constantly drunk and stoned and invited their own scarily psycopathic friends over for a stay. Beeing stoned all the time they were completely incapable to do our laundry in a decent way, tell us about activities in the city or the most basic things, such as handing us a beer from the fridge. We liked our stay and the other giests, though we were pretty pissed off about the rediculous attitude of the staff
