The staff makes this hostel gold. Interesting and very friendly, even if you just missed the train and had to come back for another night :). The hostel is located close to the train station, hence you do not have to carry your backs for too long. With it being a bit outside of the old town, you also get... More

The hostel is very near to the train station, what helps when you are arriving, The dorm that i was in front of the rececption was pretty good, they have two showers but one wasnt working so it wasn a problem. The kitchen is good but the breakfast is super simple with just basic stuff. The highest point is the... More

The hostel itself was good. The room we were in (the 8 person) had plenty of space and was what I would expect from a hostel. The staff were all friendly and helpful, showing us plenty of interesting things to go and do, and providing a decent map that was very handy. The bathroom was shared as you would expect... More

I had two great nights at the hostel with nice conversations. A very nice staff- espacially Joe made my stay. He took great care of me, wated half the night with me for my bus and shared his drinks with me. Seb's a nice guy, too.

Awesome stay and set out, the beds are comfortable and the toilets and showers are clean. It's really close to the station if you are stopping by in Bucharest. Special mentions to Joe and Seb, they made the place feel like home.

I've spent 2 nights in Bucharest, and we went to this place. Absolutely lovely and helpful staff -we got useful info about the city, map, free tour locations and so on-, crispy clean, hot water, AC unit was spot on, clean and comfy beds, and best of all very very good prices. But again, very nice staff!

Having just returned to the UK with a group of teenagers i can recommend this hostel for its location and very friendly, knowledgeable and approachable staff. Denisa and Mariana on reception were great and helped us sort out local restaurants and other nearby places of interest to visit. it's main selling points are close proximity to the railway station and...

A quick walk from the train station; other than this - nothing positive about the place.Crazy neighbours, dog barking all night,AC unit in the room barely woking (altough set to lowest temp), dodgy cpeople (cstoned and drunk Haitians/Nigerians).This place is in the middle of one of Bucharest gipsy squats - every time you pass them they'll offer you prostitutes, dugs...

The great thing about this hostel is the location: 10-15 minutes to the station. Staff members are very friendly, rooms&bathrooms&toilets are clean, and you also get access to a well-equiped kitchen. You have a good internet here. But sometimes in the night, this hostel could become a litttle noisy.

This cozy hostel is one of the best choices in Bucharest, especially since it's super-cheap and very conveniently placed near the Train Station. It's nothing special, but the atmosphere is very pleasant. You can easily make friends and have a relaxing time there. The street on the other hand, may seem a little dodgy in the night. All in all,... More
