A nice hostel for Moldova. Some little points which I aren't a big deal but best to forewarn you about: Pay in euros. When I paid in Moldovan lei, an exchange rate above the market value was used and then the result was "rounded up" by an extra 25 lei. This type of thing is common in Moldova, so be careful at markets etc as well. It was very hard to find at night (there are little red markings showing the way, but these are unlit). Note the houses are not in numerical order. Breakfast = bre

Nice staff, super worth the price (the review is for the Retro Hostel, as they offered this alternative, as the Funky Mamaliga was closed down for refurbishment)

This review is for retro Moldova hostel, not funky mamaliga. Apparently funky closed down but they relocate you over to that particular hostel. This hostel is just a house where they stuck in beds in all rooms available. The 6 bed room has a window out to the common room, which is weird as you can hear everyone talk. It also has only 1 bathroom for everyone, but at least it's kept clean.

The staff, Michael, who helped me get the taxi and negotiate the fare very early in the morning, thank you very much!

Staff were great, friendly and eager to chat with guests. There is only one shower however and when I stayed it didn't have a curtain, so the bathroom was always drenched. The dorm was very crowded, and power points were not spread throughout the room. Good security though as it was enclosed from the street.
