I had a fantastic time at this hostel. Upon my very late arrival I was met by an incredibly welcoming member of staff (Marius) who showed me around and was lovely to hang around with, chatting about Romanian politics and music on the entrance steps until the early hours. The hostel is hardly luxurious, but in my opinion no good...

This was a really nice hostel right in the center of Bucharest! Very nice garden with hammock and chairs, very chill atmosphere. Best of all was the very friendly and hospitable staff, who were so very welcoming! Only wish I could have stayed longer than 2 days!!

The hostel was nice, cozy, clean and everyone was friendly; the staff and the other guests. It is also not far from centre and the prices are quite ok for such a central location. The atmosphere in summer is really great there.

This hostel is lovely. Spacious dorms. Great staff who are friendly, helpful and speak great English. Loved the tent outside. It was so nice to sit there in the evening with a drink from the bar. Ice tea, smoothies, lemonade, beer, tea, whatever you fancy!

This was a very clean hostel, but by far the noisiest hostel I have ever stayed at. It was full of young partiers. I was also woken up early by their dog.I would not stay there again. I was also not very close to any restaurants or attractions.
