I slept 1 night in this nice hostel in the very center of Bucharest old Town, super close to restaurants, bar and nightlife. Rooms and toilettes are clean, and the sky bar on the top of the hostel is wonderful.

The drinks and the view was nice, but I kind of got the feeling that the people at the bar didn’t want us there. Also, in the TripAdvisor app, it says opening hours from 12-02, but the bar didn’t open until 19:00. Receptionist at the...More

We were so excited to be staying in this hostel but when we arrived we were horrified. We had booked a 10 bed mixed dorm which was on the top floor, this was only accessible by stairs. The entrance into our room was through the...More
