The Groove Hostel
Budapest, Hungary

Budapest
Budapest főváros, Hungary

We set out in early 2008 with a mission: to create the best youth hostel in Budapest. One that offers personal service, one that caters to all the needs of the traveller, one that would be good enough for ourselves. In short, a home away from home.

Overview

Housed in a 19th century building once used as a casino for Hungarian military
officers, The Groove, in operation since 2008, has provided thousands
of guests from all over the world with the most well rounded living experience Budapest
has to offer.
Our rooms, with their high ceilings and wood­grain floors provide a sense of
openness not found in hostels with smaller, compact spaces. Wander through the rooms
and you'll find yourself standing (or sitting if that’s your thing) on our sun­drenched
balcony overlooking Budapest’s renowned Comedy Theatre and Margaret Bridge
with a free cup of tea or coffee in hand.
Owned and operated by what might as well be a family of local Hungarians, our hostel provides the perfect environment for making friends and immersing oneself in the culture. Our helpful local staff will take good 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 information, 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.

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; if you feel like partying late, we will ask you to do so at one of the city's infinite awesome party locations.'

EXTRA: your comfort is the most important for us, so we guarantee you that our hostel is bed bug free, even if somebody brings it in, they will die, thanks to the professional pest control that we take very seriously.

Children under the age 16 are only allowed in the private rooms!

Guest Room Amenities

We have 4 dorm rooms, two 8 bed dorms, a 6 bed dorm and 4 bed dorm. Please note that the reason for the same price n the 6 and 8 bed dorm is that our 8 bed dorms are much more spacious than the 6 bed dorm.

The 6 and 8 bed dorms have bunk beds, handmade wooden beds, that are pretty solid and massive. The 4 bed dorm has single beds.

Belongs to every dorm bed: - a big lockable safety box (padlocks are available at the reception for 2€ - deposit), - a smaller shelf where you can put your belongings (book, glasses etc) - a fabric pocket on the wall next to the bed for further packing opportunities reading lamp + curtains on the bunk beds for more privacy (in the 6 and 8 bed dorms)
