Nice atmosphere, very good prices, very good location next to margit bridge and several clubs. Definitely one of the best hostel ever!
Great location, kitchen fully equipped. Street was a little loud at night, but nothing ear plugs can't fix!
It was our second time at the groove, after a few years. Definitely the place where to stay in Budapest. The location is good as it is pretty close to everything by walking. Big and spacious rooms with large comfy beds, just a bit hot during the summer but they have fan in the rooms. What makes this hostel better than others is the atmosphere inside, more like an apartment than an hostel. It's a great place to meet new people. The staff is very friendly and helpful.
The staff at this hostel are absolutely unbelievable. Ive stayed in a lot of hostels and The Groove felt like you were staying over at a friends house rather than a hostel. Really relaxed atmosphere and the hostel itself is pretty small so it's easy to meet people. Only thing I would say would be not to stay here when it's hot - we were there in the 43 degree summer heat and the hostel has no air conditioning, it was an actual sauna in the rooms at night
Good atmosphere!! They have all these funny and nice details in their hostel, which I liked :) The hostel is not so big, so you'll meet a lot of people in the common area where a lot of people were hanging around. The atmosphere is really relaxing and makes you feel like home. The staff was also really friendly and helpfully, they weren't really strict about the checking-out or checking-in time or anything else, which made me feel comfortable. I'd recommend this place!
I enjoyed my three night stay at the Groove. The staff are quite friendly and helpful. The hostel has a small, cozy atmosphere and all the people I met there were great. They also provide free coffee and tea as a bonus.
The Groove Hostel is a great place to stay in Budapest. The staff is super nice and helpful. The hostel is very well situated and very easy to find. There is everything you need! I totally recommend this place. Hope to see you guys again soon! Zora

Fantastic place to stay, staff were very welcoming and helpful with recommending places to eat and drink. its very clean too
This hostel has a very nice terrace common area and good atmosphere. The rooms are good and clean. The location is a little bit further from the center, but Bratislava is so small you can reach it by foot easily. Definately recomend!
Favorite hostel I've ever stayed in. It was clean and everything about it was really funky. Staff were really friendly and will recommend good places to visit/ go out in the city. It was clean and because of the layout, everyone just chats and we met so many people during our stay. Good security and location also, short walk to all the bars/ clubs in one direction and short walk to Buda and all the great viewpoints in the other.
fantastic place with really great staff looking to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
Our favorite hostel out of all the hostels that we have stayed at. The Groove is so amazing. We have stayed at this hostel for the past 3 times that we have traveled to Budapest. The staff is AMAZING!!! They are extremely nice. They allow you to store your luggage at the hostel. The rooms are very spacious and nice. There is a great view of the street. The hostel is in a great location. One bad thing was that the shower water was either burning hot or ice cold.
The Groove hostel was the best! After backpackin a while it felt like I had come home. The staff was so nice and the hostel itself was assome. It was in a beautiful building and the facilities were nice and comfy. For me the location was good. It is like home.
Great little place. ad a really nice atmosphere that was really chilled out / super easy to find and on one of the major streets. easy to get around. Staff were super helpful as well. Just a great place to stay!
Lovely little hostel that provided everything we needed. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would happily return without a second thought. Many thanks!

I was recommended The Groove hostel by my cousin and I'm glad I listened. The Groove is probably the best hostel I've ever stayed in. All the staff where very helpful and friendly. The hostel was an excellent place to meet people and chill out. It's homely, clean and comfortable. The location is great - near a metro/railway station and a tram stop. It's also in a beautiful building with an fantastic view! Budapest is a truly awesome city so why not stay in awesome hostel? Groovy!!
the staff is great and I really liked the hostel building. its a good place to chill out if you are tired and just want to sit back and relax.
