The staff was very helpful (not a lot of English but we had a Romanian with us), not to mention super friendly and kind. The room was exactly what we expected; quite comfortable and clean - bathrooms as well. The hostel is fantastically located and is definitely a great choice for backpackers or budget travelers - definitely recommended for friends... More

The hostel is very neatly placed, 10 minutes from the Northern Train Station and 15 minutes away from the Old Town. The hostel staff and bosses are very helpful and the staff keeps the place fairly neat. The breakfast idea is awesome too, considering that it's nice to feed your stomach in the morning without breaking the bank :) Even... More

The Hostel has rooms of the finest quality, considering the rent price. Also, the stuff is great and really take your suggestions seriously. Anytime I have a problem about anything, I cand just tell them about it and they put all the effort to solve it as soon as possible. They also talk very serious about the smoking interdictions and...

We only stayed for one night. Staff (and other quests) was very friendly. They were very helpful when we had questions about transportation in Bucharest. The room was very neat as were the puplic spaces, too. Incredibly cheap price for a hostel this nice. We booked it because it was so near Gaara de Nord. I would definetely book again!

Very Close by to Gara De Nord (Train Station) this was one reason I booked. Found the Hostel to have a superb atmosphere and they have a big basement with bar which made it an even better place to be than the spacious and air conditioned rooms. Free Breakfast but was never awake for it ;) Met some awesome people... More

The Puzzle Hostel was a great one night stay kind of place. The room was clean and spacious but very basic. The staff were as helpful as they could be with their lack of English, Max was very cheerful. The location of the hostel is good, it was a nice place to stay. In the mornings there was a free...

Very good value for money. All inclusive in the price but breakfast was self service. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Cleanliness was okay but their mattresses were magical, had the best sleep ever! Location wasnt very ideal as it was approx 20-30mins walk to the city centre but only 10mins from the train station. Good place to stay. We... More

The staff and majority of the guests were really helpful and friendly. They provided recommendations and even a free gift when we left. The breakfast is all self serve so you can cook yours eggs how you like them which I enjoyed. The only negative was a guest in our dorm room who decided at 10.30am after staying up on... More

I don't understand how it is so afordable. Hot water, free breakfast, coffee whenever u want, free washing machine, good wifi, great location, clean beds. I think the best part is how friendly and helpful the staff is. Radus father Gigi even entertained us with his amazing guitar playing and traditional romanian songs. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.... More

We originally booked for three nights but we ended up staying for another three nights. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortably warm for this time of year. The staff and owners were very helpful, friendly and accommodating. We would certainly recommend this hostel for people to stay. Bryan and Lillian CAFFERKEY.
