Located about a 5 minutes' walk to one of Bucharest's biggest malls and a 10 minute walk to the Old Town (bars and clubs), this hostel's location is one of its best features. The staff were friendly and helpful. Upon check-in, the front desk staff girl even helped me carry my big bag up the stairs. The Tuesday pub crawl was fun. The rooms and overall property were clean.
The air conditioner was put on at night and it was really helpful to get a better night's sleep. Not that they were needed, but there were feather duvets that would be great in the winter.
Two main beefs with this - you only have access to the kitchen if you are staying 5 nights or more. Also, the onsite bar (which is a great feature) is underground with no windows and gets extremely smokey. I couldn't stand more than 1 minute in there. I wish there were another communal area which was smoke-free or at least better ventilated. (One could sit outside in the courtyard.) But, this is Romania, so one better get used to the indoor smoking. One could use the hot tub but it cost extra so I didn't get to see it.
I would recommend this hostel for its location, excellent value, friendly staff, and cleanliness.
