We booked by phone Duble Private room one week before our arrival. When we arrived in Bucharest it was 7a.m. and after long road we came right to the hostel. Woman on reception told that our room is busy and there are no other vacant rooms or beds there. She told us to come back to the hostel at 2p.m.... More

The price and locations are the only good things about this place. When we arrived we were told our room wasn't ready and we were put in to a shared dorm, but it seemed we were the only people staying there so we had it to ourselves, until a girl arrived so we got moved in to 'the best' room...

Despite I met lovely people there, I will never return! I could overcome the material base I will never forget the dirt and the smell in the bathrooms. The open window and the cold in the bathroom is far from my idea of pleasant stay. Not to mention the presence of the owner who came once dressed in some kind... More

Stayed for 2 nights during Easter European Comic Con. It was fairly close to Romexpo (about 30 mins on foot). There aren't many thing good to say about this hostel but just as few bad things. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and acceptable. The bathroom could use some work. The shower was not at... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in this hostel in September 2012. The location is very good, close to the train station and not far from the city center. It is clean and has very friendly staff (we made friends with a girl named Maria and used to stay up late and talk with her)... The weather was perfect (about 30c)... More

I have been here only once for a night. I was attracted by the pricetag, which for me is important, and the conditions were good. There is warm water, heating, air conditioning (didn't use it though) and nice owners, so I recommend if you have short stay.

Simple common area, nothing fancy. The location however was great, just outside the center, next to a great park. Supermarket around the corner, asswel as the metro. No breakfast included... More

This is a small, very spartan hostel. The location is great, walking distance from parks and museums. The rooms were clean and acceptable. No nice appointments, but a good place to crash. If you are looking to be in Bucharest on the cheap, this is the place.
