What a wonderful hostel! I have stayed in many many hostels, and this one is definitely my favorite. The owner is wonderful and really makes you feel at home and goes out of his way to know you personally. He also helps create a lovely atmosphere among the guests, which is a definite plus for a female solo traveler.

great hostel


This must have been one of the best hostel experiences I've had so far. The hostel is situated at walking distance from all the main attractions. We had to use public transportation only 3 or 4 times to get to the sights that were further away, like the Village Museum and the Arc. Marius was the best host, going out of his way to help us and let us know where to go or what to see. He stayed up with us whenever we were feeling like staying up for a couple of beers. Nicest guy ever. RECOMMENDED

I heard about that and I heard also that we will meet some other time (again). We wait proposals about place and time. While you were here I was visiting Rock Monastery Basarabov in your country. Happy to hear from you. Hugs from our thin team !


If you want to stay for a nigh and close to the North Train station then this is an option.

Indeed. You arrived very late in the night while our staff didn't expect you to show-up anymore so you slept "by mistake" to Olive Hostel as the owner met you "eventually" in the court yard.You left early next day. Good point to rate our hostel LOW. Thank you but it will be dismissed soon because the person who doesn't sleep in a certain hostel is not entitled to rate that hostel.


All the staff very nice (really liked Marius), very nice hostel. easy to go from the airport, centric location. They would fix any need or urgence you have, recommend.

Wonderful staff, very kind and helpful. Nice place to lay your head for a night's sleep!


The map offered was confusing sometimes, but the rest was great!

We will order real maps as we used to have. We were out of stock and we provided you another kind of map. We do thank you for your understanding.


I really enjoyed staying here. Although very small, its very confortable. Its about 20 mins walk to the old town, but not a deal breaker. If you are out at night a taxi shouldn't cost more than 8 lei. I do recommend this place.


Most staff were friendly and very good but one of them allowed a guy to sleep in our room without telling us first. We were convinced to believe that the room was only for ourselves just to find another guy in there when we returned in the evening. Shower could use improvements, because it was flooding a lot. The breakfast was very good and the room was spacious, having a sofa besides the four beds and very good mattresses and pillows.

Indeed you had a 4 bed shared bedroom. A guest lost his flight and came back to our hostel very late. We let him sleep in your room behind the sofa. It was the only way of giving a hand as long as we were "fully booked". It was a particular situation with the guest and also it was an exception with the shower. It happened while a guest took a shower. Maybe he shaved there. Our staff solved the matter. Days are different pending the guests combination, weather and our staff shifts.


We had a private room for two nights and were really happy with the hostel. The staff were helpful and gave us some great restaurant recommendations. Disappointed that we couldn't lock our own door though. All areas were clean and the shower is awesome.


I really enjoyed staying here. Primarily for the staff. It's like family here. When I arrived they went out of their way to ensure I was comfortable. Within walking distance of all the major attractions in the city. Only drawback was the "noise". Not so much an issue but a situation to be aware of. The common area is in the middle of two rooms. You can hear everything. People were really respectful though. Praise to the staff for keeping things in line. Highly recommended.


People managing this hostel were adorable and very nice. They were very generous in giving advices and tips for traveling over Romania. Our private double room had a great big bed and was very big. The breakfast was really generous and included.

We do thank you. It's great to feel your appreciation. The days are different. Sometimes "our best" is under our average. It's quiet normal for the human beings. Enjoy your trip in our country.


Awesome hostel with a very hospitable staff. Maurice, Roxanna and their crew made my stay very welcoming and are just nice people overall. Great location in regards to getting there from the airport via the bus, the metro stations, parks, and a short walk to old town. Thanks guys!


The location is very good, close to Cismigiu and in a very quiet neighborhood.

Thank your understanding and excuse us for the inconveniences caused due to a rude volunteer that was suppose to give us hand and not to ruin our work, waste our energy and not to behave like the most difficult guest himself in front of our real guests. He is "working" now to one competitor. Good to hear that. :)
