Property Information:

Enjoy the best view of Budapest from our wonderful balcony overlooking a beautiful theater and some of the nicest buildings in the city and be amazed at the features of our own magnificent 113-year-old building. Stay at The Groove and get to know the real Budapest!

100% locally owned and operated, 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 renowned super-comfortable beds with 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.

Our helpful local staff will take care of your needs around the clock, 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 travellers in our lounge or watch a movie in our cozy TV-corner. In addition to the lounge area, all our spacious rooms offer chillout 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 travellers and locals alike. Our house and the theatre next door are both protected national monuments and official parts of Hungary's national cultural heritage.
We are 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 screening international movies with original sound, with a non-stop restaurant just across the street and 3 grocery stores and a dozen cafes and bars within 2 blocks.

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

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

    Possibly the best hostel we have stayed in so far. Fresh clean linen, free towels, big open rooms and common areas with a well equipped kitchen. Staff were really helpful with giving us advice on how to get to places and booking us a taxi and even made us coffee! Friendly and relaxed atmosphere, always felt like we were coming into a familiar environment no matter what time we returned. Played a fair few hours of GTA vice city. Would definitely stay here again.
