Great athmosphere and really nice people, working there.


cozy and kind. definitely has a charm to it. Bronco the dog is quite a champion as well


A very nice hostel, a little outside the action of the city but that makes it a secure and calm place where to get some sleep. The atmosphere is lovely, the staff is helpful, all the facilities are clean and the garden is nice to have a rest in. And the breakfast is good.


From my weary-eyed check-in (having driven from Bansko all day long..) I was looked after exceedingly well by the charming young lady on duty. Assistance with telephone ordering a pizza delivery for my supper was unexpected, but most welcome!! Later, home-made Raki was served and the local beer was superb too I intend to visit Timsoara properly in future and will 100% be staying at Hostel Costel including cooking up an Indian feast to reciprocate the warmth of my recent visit...


Such a rad hostel! Cosy, arty and creative. Staff are so friendly, they will do everything to make sure you have an amazing time . Hostel has great facilities including a big garden with deck, hammocks and space for bbqs in the summer. Make sure to visit here, we will be back for sure!

Magic place! Just 10 minutes walk to the city center, quiet neighborhood and close to supermarket. I loved this creative hostel, its spacious and bright dorms but most of all, the kind staff. Book it if you want to have awesome time in Timisoara and meet great people.

Only stayed one night but the hostel was amazing- would have loved to stay longer. Amazing common spaces to hang out and relax. Staff are so helpful and friendly. Even got up at 5 am to set out breakfast for us before our early bus. Top notch hostel!


Excellent hostel. A 10 minutes walk from the centre. The free breakfast is a nice touch. Recommended!


Great place with very kind staff and cool atmosphere.

2 showers and 2 toilets for 3 dorms, we had to queue for shower. Room was clean but showers were dirty. Nice kitchen, nice staff. Location far from city center
