Pura Vida Hostel is the only beach hostel in Romania, located in Vama Veche, the backpacker’s capital of Romania. Our location and rooms with sea views is what separates Pura Vida Hostel from the rest. Once you step foot outside of the door you are already on the beach. Right next to the hostel is our brand new chill-out bar where you can grab one of our famous Thailand buckets and enjoy a day the beach, relax in one of our hammocks and soak in the sun or hang out in our bar’s Asian style chill out lounge. The hostel will be host to a variety of events and activities ranging from yoga, drum classes to concerts in our bar. Come visit at Pura Vida and experience all that Vama Veche has to offer!

The place is AWFUL. The smell in unbearable, the bathroom had A FROG in it, the toilet was dirty from the people before us, the sink has holes that were sealed with white silicone, the cables from the light fixtures were out from the wall. So the door that squeaks was the least of our problems. THE BED SHEETS WERE NOT CHANGED before us and the matress gave us both severe back pains in the morning. There is no real possibility to let a window cracked, and you don't even want that, because the music was cranked up to the max and 10-15 people were shouting in order to hear themselves at night. The party was outside our door. Half a meter at most. The cost per night was higher than other clean places, so the whole combination is a NIGTHMARE. Steer CLEAR AWAY FROM IT if you value your health and serenity.

The price met the expectations and the staff was very nice.The only thing is that there wasn't hot water at 21:00 when we took a shower but the next day at 16:00 all was ok.We didn't came there to sleep although when we came back at 05:00 it was quiet.We didn't make noise,nobody woke us.The location is central.

Great place with nice energy!! Perfect location. We couldn’t catch our train from Brasov so we arrived one day later. Vladimir was really kind with us and switched our reservation. He also helped us to book our transfer to the AirPort in Bucarest. Gracias!! Pura vida

We arrived over a weekend and all places in Vama were full so I would definitely recommend booking ahead of time. On our third day, we came to Pura Vida where we wanted to stay initially and were able to get a private room with an extra bed for three of us. Vlad helped us with everything from doing our laundry, to booking our bus tickets to Varna, to being the ultimate host. Would highly recommend!! Thanks for the great stay!
