14 guys, 1 stag/bachelor weekend, 14 satisfied customers! Not one member of our party has a negative comment about X Hostel, it's facilities or it's staff. Rooms were fine(really glad we got the air con turned on though PHEW!) many showers and toilets, no security issues. Little sun trap/courtyard. Nice basement for games/chill/drinks. Staff were so helpful, ordered us taxis,... More

If you are looking for a hostel to meet people, have a drink and generally have a good time; don't look anywhere else in Bucharest, this place is perfect. The staff are friendly and really lenient so you can pretty much do whatever you want. The bar is cheap and is open till late ( all the music is selected... More

I started a trip with friends at this hostel. I stayed alone here and caught up with them elsewhere. I felt at home as soon as I checked in. I made a large group of friends to head out on the town for a fun evening. The staff were great to sit down and talk to.

Very welcoming staff and great services. I made some really awesome memories in this place and for sure I will be back. Make sure you don't miss any of the parties or you will regret it for sure. This will definitely be my hostel choice when I will visit their other locations.

I had a great time in X Hostel Bucharest. Staff were fantastic, always showed us the best places to go and the best things to do. Would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a fun place to stay and meet loads of people.

Center location, friendly staff, clean rooms and bathroom, even a bar and a pingpong table! X hostel fulfills all the expectation of a modern youth hostel. Perfect for a stay in Bucharest. I recommend it.

I booked this hostel mainly cause it has escape games. So we are waiting to play. Best features here: cute staff, free welcome beer, good quality private rooms, large pub with good wi-fi. Happy about our choice and hoping the escape games are fun too.

Was nothing like the photos, wasn't expecting the best place in... More

We stayed in the 3 person en suite room and it was clean and comfortable with towels provided. The welcome drink was a nice touch, and the staff were all friendly and fun. The bar was pretty quiet all the times we went in even though it was a weekend, but there was a table tennis table and board games... More
