The location is great and one of the workers is happy to take people out drinking. Very laid back feel. Place is pretty dirty though. Sheets are much smaller than bed so you just end up sleeping on the gross vinyl mattress. Shower was tiny and unclean. I did have fun with people here but felt a little grossed out during my stay.

All in all it was really nice. The staff definitely has some passion and knowledge about Romania. Unfortunately they obviously disliked our travel plans and tried to convince us of their style of traveling, which doesn't fit to us. If you look for insider tips for going to the mountains you should go there.

Great location. Very friendly staff and Raul is very helpful. It is really easy to meet people here as the staff encourages activities together and the outside garden is a nice place to sit together. The hostel itself is not that fancy, but the atmosphere is amazing.

My stay at Hostel Freeborn was incredible. The staff are the most helpful, and the environment is both fun and relaxing with its ping pong table and Wii. It was really easy to meet people and learn the best places of Timisoara. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a refreshing stay!

I really enjoyed my stay in Freeborn Hostel; the personal was amazing and really easy going: as soon as we arrived they offered us a glass of a sort of typical liquor! The atmosphere was very nice too, thanks to a small outside garden where you could stop and just talk, relax, playing ping pong...Moreover, the position was perfect, really close to the city centre. Well,enjoy your stay in Freeborn Hostel!!!

This is the best place to stay in timisoara! You won't regret it! Raul, the owner, will go out of his way to ensure you an amazing stay in romania. They are more then willing to organised personal tour for more then a fair price and the location if perfect.

I have never written a review before but I feel I have to for this hostel... It was incredible. It's not the fanciest or nicest hostel I've ever stayed in but it's in a great location and the staff are incredible. You feel like you're part of a family with Raul and Trell. If you stay here, you're guaranteed to meet some of the most interesting people and have tons of laughs and memories. Overall experience: Fantastic

If you are passing through Timisoara on your travels you cannot miss this place. Raul, the owner is the most friendly and welcoming guy you will ever meet, ensuring your stay is comfortable and fun! The common room, kitchen and outside courtyard are inviting places to meet fellow travellers from around the world and relax, creating a very chilled out environment. You will find a power outlet for each bed and a HUGE locker to guarantee your security. A terrific stay, thank you for everything!!

If you are planning on visiting Timisoara, there's no better place to stay than in Freeborn hostel. Its excellent location, friendly staff, inviting atmosphere, comfortable rooms, and facilities make this an excellent hostel. However, what made this hostel stand out among all the other hostels I have stayed in was the owner, Raul. He lead everyone in the hostel to some really nice places to drink and hang out at night. This way, we met many people and had a memorable experience in Timisoara. 10!

Friendly owner Raul and staff (usually volunteer backpackers) create a welcoming atmosphere. Small kitchen available so cooking dinners is possible. Plenty of effort has gone into the rooms with very large lockers and curtains on the beds for privacy. Very close to central square. I also scored a free beer after beating the owner at table tennis :) Timisoara is definitely worth visiting and will be very pretty once all the construction work is done. I recommend staying at this hostel.

This is my second time in Freeborn and it's really a great hostel. Good dorms and nice garden to chill out. But the best is the atmosphere and Raul who is very friendly and helpful. Definitely the best hostel if you pass by Timisoara!

A great hostel right in the center of Timisoara, Raul (the owner) was great both in making us feel at home and introducing his city to us. If I am passing by that area again, I would gladly stay at the Freeborn again.
