Go Back


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 wood¬grain floors provide a sense of openness. Wander through the rooms and you’ll find yourself standing on our sun¬drenched 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 travelers and our staff, keep clean, and in general, be the kind of person you would be happy to host.
