A wonderful little hostel conveniently a few minutes from the train and bus station and about 10 minutes from the centre, run by a very helpful Dutchman called Hans. Unlike a lot of hostels this one has more than the required number of toilets/showers for guests.


Stayed here briefly between trains. The shower was great and the bathrooms nice and clean. Breakfast is included and they even set it out early for us so we could eat before leaving to catch a morning train. Staff were lovely and the hostel is really nice and quirky!


A very, very nice hostel. A lovely building with plenty of space. Good kitchen. Nice outside space. Really helpful and pleasant staff. The extra distance from the railway (ain't it always the way in romania) and town centre is out weighed by the peace of the neighbourhood. Great staff (I know I've said it once before but it bares repeating).


I loved the staff and the dog with a human personality


Fantastic quirky little hostel with great facilities. The staff were among the friendliest people in which i meat on my travels; did everything to make sure that my visit to Timisoara was enjoyed and helped out tremendously with my transfer to Budapest (phoning up the Romanian company which i was having difficulty with). Really recommend this place!


Very cool hostel, beautifully renovated house with a good sense of humor and a sweet atmosphere. staff were very friendly and helpful. the hostel itself was more of a highlight for me than the city.


One of the best hostel I have ever stayed! Big and clean rooms; a cool area for hangout and not at last, the garden! Great stuff and decent breakfast too.


I had the best stay here! The hostel had a fun atmosphere, and the employees were all very helpful and engaging. I particularly enjoyed talking to Gav.


Lovely place very welcoming and comfortable


It is an amazing place! Home away from home. In a quite neighborhood 15 minutes walking to the center (maybe longer after a party :P) with great staff , very big rooms and a garden that makes you want to relax and enjoy the sun! I will return to this place with the first opportunity I will get / great :)


Very helpful staff. The hostel is a 10-15minute walk from the city centre.


Staff were so so helpful and friendly, the atmosphere very relaxed. Definitely one of the top hostels Ive stayed in


One of the best hostels I've stayed in. I was going to take a shower, and they offered me a beach towel! Bok also got up one more at 5:30 to set out breakfast for me before I caught a very early morning bus, even though breakfast is normally from 9-12. Both he and the other people who run the hostel are extremely considerate - one helped me peel potatoes for dinner! The facilities are good - the lockers are nice and large and the beds are sturdy. Plenty of hot water too. Great hostel!
