The staff at the hostel are really great, they give so much information and help so much. They booked our taxi for us, gave directions, recommendations. We couldn’t have asked for more. Our room 003 was a little noisy as opposite the bar and theatre but it was spacious and clean, the beds were made ready for us to sleep in and they’d turned the heating on for us, the shower was great too. The walk to the city took around 15 minutes and felt safe with myself, a friend and my 15 & 17 year olds. The taxi from the airport to the hostel at 10pm cost 40 Lei so a great price. There are several little supermarkets around the hostel and places to eat. The bar right next to it was good for food and cheap drinks so we loved having that so close. I will happily stay here again :) The only pic I have is of us drinking at the bar next to the hostel.

The room and bathroom were clean and nice, the hostel well equiped, and the staff very welcoming. There is a nice yard to have a drink and chill. Perfect for a backpack trip or holidays with friends. I recommend!

We stayed 3 nights in this hostel, which stayed before on 2016. I must say that the renovated floor and beds were a nice surprise, big new private bathroom. The attention from staff, as always, very good. Could be much better to give the towels instead of renting.Kitchen 24 hours, and your own key for entering and going out the bulding at anytime. But location it's very good, near main attractions in Bucharest and, connected by bus, with pubs, supermarkets nearby.
