Another stay, another great time. Staff was wonderful, location is key as always. Can't ask for a lot more! Perfect location to go visit local monuments and tourist sites, as well as get to the old city center to party all night. Beds were comfortable and the facilities were very clean.

The place is clean and not far from the city centre. It was excellent they served drinks as it...

Being a hostel the standard was never going to be that of a hotel. The room was clean and acceptable. The room came with two towels. The ensuite was fine other than no hot water during the mornings. There was no soundproofing whatsoever. We could hear people in the corridor, the next room, in the outside sitting area, and I'm...

There's a bar in the basement and an ATM just outside the main door. It's very easy to reach it from the airport (you have to take the subway and walk a few hundreds...

We had a wonderful time in this hostel and made friends with some of the guests right away! The place is clean, safe and super friendly. You can find plenty of board games, table-tennis and the hang-out spaces are very inviting, so you get to meet loads of travellers but also locals staying in Bucharest for a few days only....
