Very helpful staff!

- Slow email response rate. - Got lost finding it; it clearly needs a better description... make sure you look up the map of the area first! I didn't, and relied on the text instructions. Big mistake. It's misleading to suggest asking for the Ibis because it's NOT in the neighborhood of Ibis at all; the tip only refers to the DIRECTION to walk. It's much further down that road! - There is a nice common area for chatting with other guests. - Cute cats! - Nice shower!

The hostel is in the right place, according the directions. We are sorry you got so lost. In our area there are 3 others hostels, everybody find them and us according the correct directions. Regarding Ibis Hostel, we never mentioned we are located there. We mention it just to verify the right direction toward the city center (downtown) and not the toward Grant bridge. Calea Grivitei is a very long street that cross half of the town but this is not our fault. Check the map, of course !

Great place, very central (walking distance from main areas, also possible to walk from main station, but in a quiet back street), and very friendly and relaxed owners.

You can find very nice and welcoming people at this hostel, even if the cleanliness is not the best and it looks quite a bite messy, the atmosphere is very pleasant and the staff very kind really. It deserves a staying if you want to save money and you can trust people there.

It was simply great! No need to use transport, all reacheable by feet. Great friendly atmosphere, very special old building, quiet street. What else? - it is very "hostly" hostel😊, if you are looking for something like cheap hotel, you better don't chose it, cos it's not...

It's run by a brother and sister in a house that has been in the family for two generations. It's in the midst of renovation but everything was usable the others were friendly and it was about a 20 minute walk from the historic portion of buharest. Really lovely!

I had to delay my booking, and they didn't try to charge me for the day missed. There are human beings running this place! I was robbed by Meininger hostels in Vienna when I missed a train. So it's good to find compassionate people offering home to travelers. Go green frog!

No wifi was available because the owner didn't pay his bill. We had to sit at the staircase and steal his neighbour's wifi (which the owner told us to do!). The owner is not always around. Breakfast is just coffee.

It's a lie or a mistake or a confunsion or maybe worst, something about unffair competition. I remember that you were transferred you to another hostel that use to influence our guesst to give a low other hostels. It happened once with another hostel and the owner managed to prove by the help of a fair guest. I have asked your help and I didn't get it. Maybe you thought that is a joke and nobody will check out. Never happened that here.

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.

The staff here are lovely people, I had a lovely long conversation with Cristian outside on the patio.

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!!
