One of the best hostels I've stayed at, hands down. Clean, comfortable, really good value for money, great location, breakfast included, internet access, lovely outside area to chill out in, everything you could possibly want! The people who own and run the place are super friendly and amazingly helpful. I would recommend this hostel to anyone going to Bucharest!

I stayed in puzzle hostel for four days and would immediately recommend it to anyone visiting bucharest. The Staff were fantastically helpful, beyond what we would have expected. Upon arriving in Bucharest one of the guys at the hostel came to pick us up from the station to take us to the hostel. Throughout our stay they gave us great advice about bars, food and sights to see. The room was well air-conditioned and the beds where very comfy, something which was very important given that we were there in the hight of summer. Also on the day of our departure when one of our group was ill he was allowed to stay in the room until we left. Many good hostels would not have allowed this due to strictness concerning check out time however they were very understanding of circumstance. Definitely will go here if i visit Bucharest again.

We stayed in Puzzle hostel private room for one week in July. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, they called restaurants and buses for us. We highly recommend this hostel. It is very clean and has great showers. There is fast wi-fi and a decent breakfast. There is a nice park with a bar close to the hostel. It is in a quite area with no traffic noises. It is close to Gara de nord and Plaza Romania. The washing facilities ( machine and clothes line) were free and useful as we are travelling for a month. The air conditioning in rooms worked perfectly, and it is essential in the hot temperatures in Bucharest summer. We would both definitely stay here again.

I stayed at the Puzzle Hostel recently and would recommend it as a great new hostel in Bucharest. The guys who run it were really friendly and helpful and the location of the hostel was good. It was within walking distance of town but in a quiet area. There is a nice park at the end of the road which was nice to wander thru on the way into and out of town. The accommodation was clean and spacious and the kitchen downstairs is a bonus. lockable storage is provided for each bed. The only negative I could mention is that there was no lock on the bedroom door. I am a sole female traveler so would prefer to be able to lock the bedroom door at night although the hostel is secure. Wifi was also good and the rooms have aircon which was a real bonus on the hot nights I was there.

I didn't stay at the hostel, but my friends did (after a mix-up at a different hostel). Puzzle Hostel was clean, the staff was friendly, and I particularly liked the small balcony with comfy pillows. The location is fairly central, close to the Stirbei Voda part of Cismigiu park. I will recommend the hostel to any of my friends who visit Bucharest.
