It's amazing how friendly the owner is and the staff is amazingly gentle with you. Even if you miss breakfast hour you still get a nice breakfast. Beds are comfortable and place is really cute. All of this for a really cheap price (not even 8 euros a night). Amazing and close to pretty much everything. Thank you so much... More

Fine place to stay with shared bathrooms and a small kitchen downstairs. I had a private room (the only one?) with tv which was accessible only from a dorm room. The staff was very friendly and helpful despite their level of English. At night stray dogs kept me awake for some hours which is a problem all over Bucharest unfortunately.... More

We came to Bucharest on a whim without any reservation in advanced. We were lucky that we could get a room since there were a lot of locals students staying over. They gave us a double room for three persons for the normal price, great gesture! Also for some movie works that I have done they were really cooperative and... More

This place is great - I arrived alone in Romania and landed into a great bunch of friends. The first night they had a barbecue for one of the students staying there...The staff are as friendly as they come and willing to go out of their way to help. I can't thank them enough for making me welcome and comfortable... More

I stayed at Puzzle Hostel at the beginning and end of my stay in Romania and it is great value for money. The six bed dorm I was in was clean and spacious and had lockers. Outside the dorm is an area with sofas where you can socialise or use your laptop. There are bathrooms on both floors and both... More

I arrived at Puzzle Hostel with no booking at 7:30am and was greeted by the receptionist who was able to book me in for two nights and said I was free to use the kitchen, bathroom and common areas until my bed was free at 12. The hostel is located a 10 minute walk from the train station, 15 minutes... More

A great hostel in Bucarest! One of the cheapest in the city too. We arrived late with no booking. It was fully booked but they suggest we sleep on the couch, which we actually booked for 4 nights! The staff and the owners are very kind, trustworthy and helpful. I'm so glad I met them all! We had really nice... More

We (my best friend and I) arrived late and we hadn't book. The hostel was full, but the receptionist offered us to stay on the couch instead, which we accepted straightaway. The weather was really hot, and we were glad to have air-conditioning (like in all the other rooms). The following morning, the staff was really helpful. They gave us... More

We were a group of 26 people. The staff at Puzzle Hostel were very accommodating and worked hard to make us feel comfortable. The space worked well for our group. We filled the entire hostel. We had a pleasant stay and would return when visiting Bucharest again.

At first it seemed like a good place- the American at reception was really nice and helpful. The room seemed very clean. And then it seemed to go downhill a bit fast. Overall it felt like we were staying in a dorm half full of university students- no other travelers. The private room had a frosted window pane- that was... More
