I´ve bin only for two nights out of many in the friends hostel, and it was one of the best on my way. You got all you need: Free WiFi, friendly and very informative stuff, clean bed and bathroom, free breakfast and not least a save place for my bicycle. The closeness to gara nord was the reason why i... More

Booked initially for 4 nights, ended up staying for almost 3 full weeks while I was searching for an apartment. It is situated 5-10m by foot... More

If you are in Bucharest, you should definitively go there ! It's a very nice place to stay, from one night to how many you want ! It's near the city center and everything is closed (grocery store, bus stop, train station and so on). In addition, the girls at the reception are very helpful !

Really comfortable and warm hostel with welcoming staff who go out of their way to make sure you have a great visit. Good wifi and free basic breakfast of cereal and bread. Great downstairs and upstairs relaxation areas and 2 computers. Close to the North railway station but a 25 minute walk from the city centre, this makes it very... More

Beware, or at least phone ahead, they don't seem to bother keeping their booking dot com or hostelbookers sites availability up to date. I had a funny feeling and sure enough it was fully booked, so make sure you don't just blindly book with them through the web.

In and out I stayed a whopping 5 nights! Clearly there's a reason and it's the Crew and management. If you planned a million things, or planned nothing, either way here you'll get all the help only a friend could give and I mean everything. The ladies running the house are to date the best and honest hostel caretakers I've... More
