Administration system very disorganized. Only 8 dorm rooms but advertise 10 dorm rooms - confusing! I had booked for 5 nights and had printout but only registered as 4 nights on hostel spreadsheet. Only at end of webpage facilities that are unavailable. Had to move room to accommodate larger party and then bed subsequently given to another guest!


Nice place and staff but a bit of a walk to the centre


I booked a 3 pax bedroom and ended up sleeping in the attics. It was so low that I hit my head once. Definitely much worst than staying in multi pax dorms.


A well-run hostel, the staff was very helpful. I would stay here again.


Great hostel, a little far from the old city center, but still within walking distance. Very friendly staff, good toilets ads shower facilities.


The personnel is very friendly and helpful and when we travel this is a very important factor


A good location that is so easy to walk to from the train station. A really helpful and friendly American member of staff. A good chill out zone upstairs, free internet usage and a free breakfast in the morning. I would definitely recommend


Fantastic stay. Great staff, great location, best value for money hostel in Bucharest.


It was a great experience staying at Friend's Hostel, probably one of the funnest hostels i have ever stayed in europe and i certainly will recommend it to anyone I know that goes to Bucharest!


Its'a good spoot ,close to the buss station.A lots improvement in the cervise!!Last time when i was there, they barely had a tipe of tea... Now it is a full breackfast!Well Done! Oou


Absolutely love this place!!! Cute hostel not too big not too small with a nice lounge area, large kitchen and chilled staff. Only thing is beware of taxis, make sure the metre is on as they love to overcharge or you can just walk as everything is no more than a 20min away.

Top hostel! clean, comfy beds, large kitchen, nice lounge and fantastic staff who are more than willing to ensure you get to see the real Bucharest. The hostel is an easy walk from the train station with the directions spot on. Also given the more interesting things to see in Bucharest are spread around the city I found the hostel conveniently located as everything was within a 5-20min walk. Its also located close to the student city so lots of cheap restaurants, bars, clubs and no tourist!


Very good place for some days in Bucharest.


Very friendly staff, good location, cleanliness was OK. It is 15 min by foot to the centre of the old town - good in order to avoid taking taxis in Bucharest.


This hostel is a great place to stay when you are in Bucharest. It is located 20 walking mins from Old town or the Parliament. The stuff is really friendly and helpful. You have a nice kitchen which you can use.

Realy friendly staff, only comment was that it was a bit further away from the town than id hoped. Not a huge issue though as taxis are cheap


Enjoyed my stay there. In a quiet quarter of Bucharest so got some good sleep. Staff were great and met some awesome ppl there. I would recommend it!


Not near the old town but you can walk there in about 30mins. On the same street as the military museum soif you like tanks (and lots of them) this place is for you. Really good use of the attic room to make a very cost chill out room. Kitchen was large and well equipped. Staff were very friendly and helped my set up the other parts of my trip and gave me good advice on what to see in Bucharest. There's more to it than the old town. Much More.
