I stayed there a week ago. From what I understood the hostel was under renovation and management has been changed. Central Hostel is very clean, stuff is very good. At 15 minutes walking from downtown.When I will return to Bucharest, I will stay there once again.

the hostel is clean, the receptionists are kind, it's quiet, but the hostel is not in the center (20 min walking the central square). we booked this hostel because they said us that is in the center, but it's not. the staying was good but if you want to stay near the city life, it's not the right place.

We arrived at 9pm and would have left straight away if we werent exhausted from a 48 hour trip to get there. The lady working there was rude and we seemed like an annoyance to her. Our dorm was 4 bunks, which is fine, but on one of the bottom bunks was a 50 something year old half naked man....
