“Great hostel!”
Reviewed June 4, 2014 via mobile

I am staying in one of the private rooms. It is very clean and comfortable with private bathroom, a/c and natural light. The hostel is located few minutes from the old city. So the location is fantastic to explore the city. The staff is super friendly and helpful and there is a cool bar to hang out! The only negative is that it is not possible to get breakfast in the hostel. There is a good bakery walking distance though. Would definitely stay here again when I am back in Bucharest.

Stayed here with probably 40 young adults and parents. First time ever and I loved it! The bar gave us a free drink even! The staff was helpful with directions and suggestions. Near to Old Town! The cleanliness was exemplary! The only thing that was iffy was the wi-fi. Would definitely stay there again!

On vacation with friends we stayed here. There was a deal available where we could buy 10 euros to drink at the bar and sleep for free. The hostel was a nice place not far from old town and a main square. The staff was pretty nice and liked to joke with you. The room was pretty nice and the building was pretty secure. Only thing was the showers. The rest of the bathroom was very clean but the showers were not very clean looking. Looked like maybe some new tile work was needed and it would be all fixed.

First time ever in a hostel and first time ever backpacking and we could have picked a better place to start! Such a great atmosphere, friendly staff and clean dorms. Ok, the hot tub room smelt a bit mouldy...but still...there was a HOTTUB! The bar is open 24hours and its a great meeting place to chat to staff and similar travellers.

Old town is the place to go for the night life, I recommend MOJO. and that's only a 5mins walk away from the hostel. I will be back...

Room Tip: if getting a taxi from the airport it is very cheep and safe. Just make sure you have the post code...

Loved my stay at X Hostel. Came for two nights, stayed ... a long long time. There are a lot of things that make it a great spot: a mix of dorms by size and type as well as more hotel/airbnb type private rooms, friendly staff willing to go above and beyond (order pizzas, translate directions for... the tailor fixing my pants, take you out and show you the town), and... it must be highlighted: 24 hour bar. The location is easy to reach on the subway from the train station and is a very quick (and safe!) walk from the old town, which is chock full of great bars/clubs/restos. Highly recommended and will definitely go to other X Hostels!
