“Like staying over at a friends place.....”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

OK so my check in was a little all over the place, I was expecting to be greeted by Marius, but no word from him. It didnt matter, someone answered the hostel so I dropped my bag off and headed off for the day.
When I came back I checked in, I cant remember the guys name! but he was lovely. Gave me a map and showed me everything I needed to know, sights, shops, tours etc. So helpful and friendly!

The hostel itself is in a great location, 5 min walk into the heart of the old town and 15 min walk to Palace of Parliament. Its a beautifully decorated place, and is spotless clean, they seem to get a cleaner in everyday. Other bonuses about the place, free towels, laundry facilities, excellent wifi, and a handy little App on the computer that when you press a button, a taxi gets called to collect you from the hostel downstairs.

One thing to point out is there are only 2 bathrooms, but I found that one or the other was generally free. Also the hostel is on the 6th floor, which was alot of excercise for me. There is an elevator, but it just freaked me out! :)

Anyway if your looking for somewhere with perfect location, thats clean and has friendly hosts then this is the spot.

is an excellent hostel. Warren and Marius are great, always open to help you and very friendly guys. Cozyness is a must place to visit in Bucarest!

The kitchen and the big bathroom are really comfortables, the relax room is excellent for chill out during the evening and has a lot of bars really near the hostel.

Room Tip: locate the place with google maps or something like that before arrive to bucarest

Great hostel as the name suggests the cozyness, it lives up to its name very warm and friendly place more like staying at home, very relaxed atmosphere. Ive being travelling for 3 years now, and the staff are some of the best I have come across especially Marius. A good place to chill out while travelling in Bucharest.

Everyone was so nice and welcoming. It's a very social hostel and Marius (owner of the hostel) was always finding out what was happening in Bucharest and taking us out in the evenings. They have bikes that you can use for free, you just have to pay a deposit. The location is perfect, I was able to walk everywhere I wanted to go and there are two 24 hour mini markets very close by which was convenient. The hostel is a pretty fun place to hang out if you just want to stay in for the day, there's hundreds of movies, a wii, playstation, free wifi, air conditioning (gets pretty hot in Bucharest).
I can't think of anything bad about this hostel, it's clean, the people are friendly, and it's just a fun place to stay!

I stayed here for a few days in June, and it really was a great place! Very social and easy to meet people, also in a good location, close to the old town. If I come back to Bucharest I'll stay here for sure!

Great location in the city center, super helpful personel, clean and cozy, with two bathrooms and a lofty common room, good wifi. Great value for money! All in all - one of the best places I stayed in! Will be back for sure.

Cozyness has a great relaxed atmosphere, it feels like you've moved in with a load of friends rather than staying at a hostel. Marius (the owner) organises evenings out for everyone too so it's great for meeting people- at the same time if you just want to stay in and relax that's fine. The location is perfect, not far from the airport or railway station by public transport and walking distance to loads of tourist attractions, bars and restaurants. There's also a kitchen so you can cook if you want to save money. Definitely recommend it, will stay here again :)
