Close to the downtown (15 minutes walking) and to the north station, the staff is kind and helpful. Small breakfast in the morning, internet is working properly. A good hostel.

The staff was really helpful and friendly. I was looking for a place to sleep one night close to train station and this hostel was simply good for this. I would choose them for next time too.

The manager was wonderful! We were able to check in at 7am after our flight, but be aware that the number on hostel world is not his number. We tried to call for directions and couldn't reach him. The location was great and made it easy to get to all the things we wanted to see. He arranged a special taxi to the airport for us at 4am and it only cost us 7 Euro. My only real complaints are that the shower doesn't stay hot. It goes hot then cold then hot and the place could use a deep cleaning.

Great location very close to The train station and a 30 minute walk down to the Old Town. Very clean, nice kitchen, hot water, everything you need. Very hospitable, thanks Marius. Now if they could just update their address on the Hostelworld site all would be good. At the moment if you go to the listed address you then have to walk back towards the station to the new place which is still being set up.

10 minutes walk from train station. 20 minute walk to city centre and old town. Lovely hosts that go out of their way to help you get the most out of your time in Bucharest. No aircon or fans in the rooms, and only 2 showers in the whole building. Lockers in the rooms. There was no breakfast, and tea/coffee was available however milk was not always there. Cleanliness in the kitchen was disappointing. Cake shop next door is worth a visit! Make sure you double check the address, they have moved!!

The hostel was a newly opened addition to the original Green Frog hostel, so it was not set up completely. The location is great, really close to the Gara Nord, a large market, and a park. The beds were comfortable, the staff helpful and relaxed, and the kitchen well stocked.

The hostel is being moved to a different location and most of the reviews are based on the old one, I suppose. I wasn't informed so I had to make a bit of a detour but the new one's not that far from anything, either. Quite close to a big street though so bring earplugs. The facilities are still a work in progress, there were some lockers but not enough. Breakfast was good and the staff wonderful and helpful so in total it was still a good experience

Thank you ! Most of the reviews are based on our services, our team work, the weather, the combination of the guests and their behaviour, their demands, their education, their origin, their habits, their experience and their mood of course. After 2 years of activity, we deserved a better location as long as the old one need some renovations. We do our best to keep our promises and improve our services.

I guess green frog is under renovation so when we arrived we were moved to a different hostel which was confusing at first but ended up working out for the best. Mauris is an amazing hostel manager and over-the top helpful, even taking the time to write out a full menu for things we need to eat while here. Eztremely home-ish feel Id go back to romania just to chill at the relaxing hostel. Big spacious rooms w beautiful furnaces and high ceilings made it feel like a hotel.

Green Frog is a truly amazing place to stay! It's unlike other hostels in that it's more like staying with a family than it is with other travelers. Marius and Roxanna were both extremely helpful in telling me what the best sights are, where the best restaurants are, and what else to do in Romania. The hostel itself is in a beautiful neo-classical building. Everything is clean, the kitchen and bathrooms are great, and the location is within walking distance of everything.

Thank you ! You got the point, this our "niche" on the market. From the beginning of our activity, most of our guests described us like a "homy hostel" and we are happy to find out that we remained the same. This is what we can do, more or less.

Nice place. Very central. Staff was amazingly friendly. A hostel where you can meet people from all around. Pretty much clean and very cheap. But pay attention! They moved the address and it's not informed here yet. We went to the wrong one.

Thank you ! We relocate our hostel and the proceeding will take a while, it can not be done "one shoot", it can be done "step by step" . It is not a simple proceeding. We will change our address after we arrange the new place and finish the legal proceeding. It is not simple and easy. We keep working on that. We are still at the old place so our guest will not get lost. We are here for you, we enjoy our work and we are grateful for that.

The neighborhood is not very nice, however the staff is very friendly. It has wifi for free

Owner Comment (Hide)
All the area is under construction. It will be a highway and a mall within the next years. We are located 5 min. away from Gara de Nord, the nearest hostel. Even thought everything look like a building site with the respective "fauna" .Our building is newly renovated, clean bathrooms, nice kitchen an courtyard.....all facilities for our guests. Also,there are 5 star hotels placed in this area so definitevly the neighborhood can not close a business or affect the services. The area is more than safe. All people/ tourists that arrive in Bucharest walk on this street on their ways to their destinations.

Green Frog was being renovated when I visited but will be a fantastic hostel when completed. Great location if you're visiting the opera and literally two minutes from Sala Radio (art deco concert hall with a nightly program). I was offered a very good deal because it was being renovated and if the prices remain anything like what I paid it will be a great deal.
