i think this hostel is abit run down and needs a re-vamp... small indoor common area not really ideal for winter cause theres limited space... outside area is great. the staff made this place most bearable.... if it wernt for them i probably would have stayed elsewhere for my 2nd night.
Staff was very nice

Great location and great male staff member. Very friendly place.
I spent a few nights at the Freeborn hostel and it was one of the best experiences I spent in a hostel. The place is awesome and the atmosphere unbeatable. 100% recommendable.
Cool hostel with good staff who are always happy to give you information and just hang out. Would stay here again.
I made a very short notice reservation for this hostel, because of friend of mine told me to go there if I am ever going through Timisoara. I am so glad I listened to her, because I had there everything I needed for a night spent away from home. Good job to Raul for what he has done there. And thank you for everything you told me to visit when you are in Timisoara :) The long walk on the river shore was the second best thing you can find in Timisoara after Raul and his hostel.Thank you for all!
The staff and everyone at Freeborn Hostel were great. My boyfriend and I came and stayed in the private room. There were two beds instead of one big one which was unfortunate but totally understandable. We were scheduled for 2 nights but our train was cancelled and we had to take the next train that was at 3am. The staff let us come back and hang out on the patio, use the facilities and basically relax untill we had to walk in the middle of the night to the train station. Made us feel like fam!
Altough i really enjoy to travel with some good summer weather on my side, when i arriveid in Timisoara i had the surprise to have a real autumn day...but even so, a pot of tea, some wii games and some good quality time spend with people from the hostel, made me change my mind about all my traveling :) I think that it is a big plus what this hostel has to offer: a very good place to spend your nights and the opportunity to feel like home, no matter who you are and what are your likes.

The overall atmosphere was warm and welcoming, and people were very friendly. The hostel officials provided useful information about the city, i had a wonderful and pleasend time at the hostel.
Super chill hostel, great fun, friendly staff. Best check-in review of a city I've ever had, it was like a walking tour without walking! Facilities are awesome, clean, comfy beds, lockers, plenty of bathrooms, laundry facility, well equipped kitchen. Oh and fresh grapes galore from their own vine!
Best hostel so far, great staff and good atmosphere. Situated right in the city center next to a big park and across the street is actually an old castle from the XIV century, my time there was flying. Wish I could stay more. Perfect place to be when you're in Timisoara !
Had a bad experience with a snoring person keeping all 5 people awake the whole night but not the hostels fault, the whole place just seems a bit run down. Staff were very friendly, a small hostel making it hard to have a good atmosphere as not many hang out in the social area. Has a kitchen and okay facilities but you just feel a bit cramped all round in the hostel. The mosquitoes both outside and in didn't help either. In my opinion it's more a place hippies would stay.
The hostel is a great place to relax and meet people. The outdoor common area is perfect for conversation, music and eating meals. The staff is great, extremely friendly and knowledgable about the area and its history. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are clean. The kitchen has an espresso machine-- love it!
We had a very nice stay there. The hostel was clean and the host was extremely friendly and helpful. The location is also really good, close to main attractions and also easy to find.
Only a short stay but very enjoyable! The hostel is in a perfect location and the owner is very helpful. The garden is beautiful and the hostel has everything you need for a good stay. Would have liked to enjoy the free shot haha
Cool hostel. Very easy to find. It's too bad we only stayed one night as we were passing through to get into Serbia. I highly recommend it.
They offer great coffee all the time. Stuffs are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are simple and clean. Very easy to meet some great and interesting travellers.
We stayed in the new appartment and it was so cozy :) Raul is a nice person even the other 2 guys - Our room was big and colorful - we had 2 bathroom and a nice patio where to smoke if u want . Cozy kitchen and all of this is the heart of timisoara
