You can spend a low-budget overnight stay in Groningen at the Simplon Hotel on Boterdiep street. This youth hostel is one of the cheapest hostels you will find in Groningen. And it’s probably the best choice if you’re looking for fellow travelers to hang out with. Next to dormitories, Simplon offers apartments and private rooms.
The hostel is a 12-minute walk from the Grote Markt in the center of Groningen. But there’s enough to see and enough food to grab just around the corner. Also, the city park Noorderplantsoen is a great place for you to enjoy summer evenings.
Opposite the hostel is the backyard of The Prael, a great place to grab a beer.
