Perfect location close to the old city center, great bar downstairs and friendly staff! The owner was fun and made sure that things were working right! Jordy was a blast as well! I'll be back the next time that I'm in Bucharest!

A hostel that has it's stuff straight. Passports were not copied, but a few things were written down. They heavily fined smokers inside, which was something I liked as well! The room was big, we had a lot of floor area (it was not filled with furniture, so a lot of space was sort of useless). The bathroom was nice... More

My friend was staying in this hostel so I went over to visit her. I was pleasantly surprised that hostels in Bucharest have this standard: pub with bitcoin atm (they do exist!) and lots of interesting games I ve never heard of: drinking jenga, beer pong and cards against humanity for example She showed me a picture of her dorm...

It's my first solo & I decided to go for hostels instead of 5 star hotels as it was the best decision the trip stay is more fun. I did not not experienced any thing like this before. I love the hostel experience and the staffs are really informative & helping.

I hate giving this hostel a 2, because it was so cheap and really fun. But honestly the bathrooms did smell despite staff efforts to clean them, the room was very hot, and beds very loud. People were cool there but I would avoid. Little Bucharest is good if it's not hot (no AC).

Awesome hostel, perfect location and lovely staff. The hostel is very large with a pub downstairs and a terrace outside. This made it very easy to meet people, have a few drinks, hangout with the staff and then head out for a night in Old Town. The rooms, bathrooms and kitchen are all very clean. I loved this hostel and... More

The staff was very helpful/nice and the location is excellent. But the hostel is just average... the rooms are small and crowded and the beds are very squeeky and cheap. The upstairs has an unpleasant smell and it lacks a comfy common area, as the only area is a bar. This hostel doesn't allow you to bring your own beer,... More

Very good location, very nice rooms and good price! The hostel is very close to the center, there is a cosy indoor pub area and an outdoor terrace for drinking purposes, and the hostel is mostly full of party-people. The staff were friendly and I also received one welcome drink. I enjoyed my time there and i'll choose it next... More

Very good location and a very social atmosphere. The staff were friendly but not very knowledgeable. Bathrooms and bedding were clean but the walls of the dorm room I was in (21) were nasty.... chocolate pudding stains (I hope).
