Very friendly staff and I enjoyed the breakfast. I also loved seeing the little dog that one of the employees had!
really nice cosy place. staff were really helpful. particularly the Serbian chap (can't remember his name). The night i arrived the owner had just got married and was giving me plenty of Palinka to drink. So timing of my visit was good too! Free breakfast, another worker helped me to search to watch Premier League football extensively. cannot complain about anything, apart from the weather being rubbish (though that has nothing to do with the hostel itself)
Great hostel with really welcoming staff. I wasn't in Timisoara long enough to use the showers so I can't comment on them, but the rest of the hostel was neat and clean at all times. The kitchen is really well stocked. It seems a little bit out of the way at first, but it's definitely within walking distance of the city center, and the neighbourhood is really quiet at night. Would stay here again for sure.
This place is amazing! Great people, cool place, amazing garden! Clean, safe, really nice style, interior design, etc.! Free breakfast/coffee/pc use!!! Will definitely be back!
One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Feels like a home, very clean, and nice kitchen and bathrooms. The 10 bed dorm is so spacious. Also cool additions like an xbox, bath tubs in the garden, and Jagermeister bottles for the soap dispenser :) The staff were so helpful, as we asked them to help plan our onward journey and they did a very thorough plan while we settled into our room. I can't imagine there is a better hostel anywhere in Romania.
Awesome place to hang out. Really enjoyed my stay there.
One of the best Hostels I stayed in! Very nice staff, it's always someone around to answer all your questions, helping organize your next stop or have a beer with you. Great kitchen and garden and very cozy athmosphere all over the place! Highly recommended!
Really nice place to stay even for only one night. We were passing by Timisoara and we had the lovely surprise my friends and I to find this hostel. The atmosphere was really cool and staff&people very nice ! A lot of french like us, but still a really good place. If you want to stay 1 day or more, I definitely advise you to go to this hostel ! :) The room are big and there is a lot of space inside and outside the hostel. A little paradise for travelers !
If you moustache. I've been backpacking around Europe with friends for a few weeks now and this hostel was by far the best we've been to. It's only downfall is that it is a little further from the centre than some other hostels however, this distance from the hustle and bustle allows for a chilled out and relaxed hostel where the owners sit around with the guests sharing stories, melon and beer until the early hours of the morning. I highly recommend Hostel Costel.

Really friendly and helpful staff. The place is kept really nice and tidy and clean. Also,they've got a massive patio with two bath tubs which you can fill up and sink in after a hot sweaty day.
Amazing place to stay in Timisoara although not so close to the city center. The atmosphere is great. This is a renovated villa with loaaaaads of space. I loved it.
quick one night stay but hostl was clean, comfortable, and had all the bits and pieces one needs. Free breakfast was a nice inclusion
Good location. Xbox 360. Lack of key to our room.
