If you get stuck in Groningen you can stay at the 'Santana' 24-hour bar, but they might get you to buy a drink once in a while. It's right in the centre by the market place (Akerhof 4a). Moreover, Groningen is a vibrant student city and going for a drink might result in a couch or bed for the night. Try your luck.
