Freeborn is a nice hostel where you can sleep over for a very decent price. People who work there are very helpful and kind. You don't have a feeling of being in a hostel, it feels more like coming to a friend's place. I recommend staying there when in Timisoara.

In 6 weeks of traveling this has been my favorite Hostel. The hostel itself is small but efficient. You have laundry (no drier), computer, ping pong, TV, super friendly, incredibly laid back. You will get to know everyone by name. Absolutely challenge Raul to chess if you have a chance.

I went with a group for a weekend away to Timisoara and Freeborn Hostel was an excellent choice. The staff are incredibly helpful and nice with a consistent presence to ensure that all of the residents are enjoying their time and if they have any questions that need to be answered. The hostel has a great place to relax outside... More

We spent three wonderful nights there. The Hostel is decorated with lot of stile and Raúl, her owner is improving the resources all the time. He uses to offer homemade palinka for free and likes to take everybody out for party in Timisoara. BTW, he gives maps and explain everything that you need to know about the city. The hostel... More

As a woman travelling solo, and inexperienced in it, I especially appreciated the sense of security and warmth I felt there. I immediately liked Raul` s (the owner` s) natural attitude, genuine hospitality and helpfulness. The atmosphere was so friendly that it was really easy to meet other people, and I enjoyed hanging out in the hostel. Free welcome drink,... More

Firstly the location of this hostel is brilliant, less than a 5 minute walk into the centre and close to alarge supermarket and the parks. The hostel itself is small and has a great atmosphere, where it is really easy to interact with everyone. There are facilities such as wifi, a computer, television, a wii. And free tea and coffee...

I stayed at Freeborn for one night in August and give it high marks. Definitely a backpacker kind of place: spacious and well set up dorm room, a living area with a comfy couch, a kitchen with plenty of room to cook and eat and a back yard for hanging out. This definitely seems like a place you could hang... More

Freeborn Hostel is one of the best places I have ever stayed in. Take up the private 2-person room and enjoy a nighttime show of glow-in-the-dark paint on the back wall and ceiling. Take up the 6-person dorm and enjoy the privacy of blinds separating you from everyone else or simply enjoy the darkness into the afternoon after a late... More
