There was a problem with our booking, but it might be related to hostelworld: Our room was booked three times on the same date, and we had to move to another room with 4 beds and had to wait until the evening. The room was next to the inner yard and always open. The toilet was leaking and there isn't really a shower. Mamaia beach is still quite far away and we didn't get real maps. There was not really a storage possibilty for our luggage. The good atmosphere, though, really compensated a lot.
The hostel is okay, although I believe they have bed bugs there...
It's a good place to make friends, perfect of the summer. The owner is a friendly guy who speak several languages. A good hostel.
Don't stay at this hostel if you want peace and quiet. It's impossible not to end up talking to other guests. The owner is nice but can be a bit much at times.
The directions for how to get here need to updated; especially as bus numbers have changed. Staff are really lovely, pleasant and helpful - always around to help. This is the only hostel in the area - so they have a monopoly. Unfortunatly during my stay, the bunk beds in both dorm rooms has a bed bug infestation. The only alternative the hostel offered was to change to the other dorm room, not to look at removal of the infected furniture. No lockers for belongings, shower head above toilet.
I really like the vibe of the hostel, and a lot of cool people come and stay there!
Small hostel with one common area meaning it's easy to meet people. Friendly staff who organise day trip (not the cheapest day trips but definitely good) and a nice place to stay
The hostel staff is great, very nice. Laundry is free wash and air dry. The hostel says there is A/C in two rooms, it was never turned on. We had to sleep with the door open at night because it was so hot. This also meant no privacy! The courtyard is right outside the rooms, which means if people are up talking, you are not sleeping. There was also some guy who did not work there who sat on the bench in the courtyard and also slept there. A little weird. Only one bathroom was working.
Definitely the people and atmosphere that made this. The owners are lovely, and enjoy spending time socialising with guests. Rooms all open to an external communal courtyard with the kitchen and bathrooms the same, so socially orientated. Hostel is a little far from the main town, maybe 30 mins walk. Very close to beaches and lake though, so good value overall.
EOL 777 Hostel is the best hostel on the continent. Alin is both a character and an excellent owner. Do not stay here, if you don't enjoy having fun. Activities are always organized according to the crowd, and you will find yourself hanging out with people from all walks of life. Truly a unique atmosphere. We were even taken on a day trip to Bulgaria which was fantastic with Alin and his wife Florita. They are now Romanian family.
Just relax and enjoy the company of the great people and the coolest and nicest owner... Else, everything is in place you would expect from a hostel, but no 5 or 7 star hotel or resort can come closer to the atmosphere of this place plus you would miss the chance of meeting those down to earth guests and the great owner....
Fantastic lady who runs the place :) Really nice, would totally go back!
Very clean, lots of fun and the host was extremely helpful. I had a great time there! *Tres propre, tres bonne choix
Loved it! Razvan and Flori are the nicest people in the world and treated me amazingly. the hostel is small and basic, but super sociable. I spent most of my time in the smoking patio in the sun drinking coffee til night time and chain smoking. you get to meet every guests who is staying there, and I met some brilliant people. It's near the beach and Razvan will tell you all the cheap places to eat and which clubs to go to depending on your taste and budget. never felt more at home!
The lady that ran the hostel was so helpful! Hostel is clean and location is good but a bit far from mamaia beach
The staff was really nice with us, the rest of the hostel is normal with the money that you pay. Everything was OK, just take care with that Shower-Bathroom, you could have a surprise if you want to clean your hands :D I recommend this hostel!
The staff here was great , helped booking taxi and helped find places to go. The location is nice by being near the beach about ten minute walk depending on your pace. The showers are just a shower head hooked to the sink but it works ! Overall friendly staff and nice location for the price.
Our stay was short but very pleasant. The staff of the hostel was incredibly kind with us, she gave us advice about touristic views, se gave us a map, some beach and shower towels and she also call a taxi in the morning.

Small but very, very great Hostel!! The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms clean at any time. Nice kitchen with everything I needed was always usable. The staff Valentina and Allen are great people and created an atmosphere in which all visitors felt like a big hostel-family. They helped us with problems and showed us around the city. It is a place full of joy and peaceful pleasure!!! Totally recommend it and will hopefully go back there. Thanks again!
