I was there for a meeting in one of their lounges. The location was quite hard to find, but the inside was cozy and the people in the other lobby were playing the guitar and it actually made a nice environment for our meeting, it was a great joke opportunity (we were starting to discuss some love stuff and the guitar was just perfectly syncronized). Interesting location overall, central and with a nice view but hard to point out and the way up is exhausting for unfit people.

The bartender that served suggested that we try his signature cocktail when we asked for an old fashioned, we begrudgingly said yes and were served a peppermint and scotch drink, that no where near resembled an old fashioned twist, or any cocktail. He talked a lot of crap about his knowledge of cocktails that was frankly unlikable and irrelevant. Faster service would have been better appreciated. View was nice from the bar.

The location of the hostel is really good, right in the city center. The access to the metro station is very easy. Enjoying the view and having a drink at their skybar is also a plus. Overall I had a pleasant stay.

This place is the best option if you are looking for a room right in the city center of Bucharest. And if you are a fan of rooftops, the skybar has a beautiful view above the entire old town. Another thing I really appreciate at this place is that you have access to a lot of restaurants, pubs, clubs and metro station is just 2 minutes away.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that the hotel is located in the city center, close to everything that Bucharest has to offer. The rooftop was also a plus during my stay. It is a good place for a short trip in the city.
