We loved Friends Hostel!! Located close to Gara du Nord. Metro stops and airport bus near by. A good place to rest and chill out. Beds are great, so are the showers. The best feature was the crew! We have never felt so welcomed as in Friends. Thumbs up for Dana, Diana and Andreea. The will help you with everything... More

We arrived in the early morning and we found an unexpected hospitality from the girl at reception. Is really close to the train station but maybe a little far from the city centre. Clean toilets, clean rooms and a great willing, helpful staff. They helped us to find the best places to spend time always smiling. I recommend it!

Ive stayed here twice with my friends, and it was really funny. Last time we were 15 people and they helped us with the city, looking for clubs, and so on... Good location (near the train station), confortable rooms, 1 living room (perfect to having a drink, meeting people,...) and the best staff. I really recommend it!!

We were a group of 15 people from Spain traveling around Romania and this hostel was the best thing that could ever happen to us in this trip. The atmosphere is very familiar and perfect to make new friends or to stay with your old ones. The hostel has a very nice kitchen and lounge room and clean bathrooms. But... More

We were at this hostel for 2 days on August. The staff was very friendly and helpful and we met a lot of nice travelers. The friends hostel is also not far away to see the sights of the town (+/- 10min walk). They have a kitchen, a fridge, a washing-mashine for the guests. Upstairs they have a Chill-Out room... More

I stayed in this hostel for 2 nights on September. Only 5-6 minutes walk from central bus & train station in Bucharest (Gara de nord). It was a very pleasant hostel to stay in. The staff was very kind and helpful. The rooms and bathrooms/showers are all clean and comfortable. There's a kitchen with everything you need including washing-machine and... More

It was also a good place to meet fellow travellers, we even watched a film one night in the social... More

This was one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. As soon as I walked through the door, I felt comfortable because the staff was incredibly friendly and cheerful. The hostel used to be an old house, so it has a nice, cozy atmosphere. Their lounge and kitchen area is quite nice, and in the upstairs lounge they have... More
