Beautiful hostel looks like an apt. Great location in the old town w bars and restaurants right outside the hostel. Music until 5 am every morning. Bring earplugs. Rooms are big and spacious w high ceilings. The common room/reception in the same room. Toilets/showers are smelly and not very clean. No hot water. The staff are friendly but no organization. Had to remind them a few times when they booked tour or checked something for me. Then he/she left and the new person had not been informed....

A hostel in the very center of the city with an extreme helpful and kind staff. The rooms are spacious and newly painted, the beds are comfortable. During the night there might be music outside, but closing the window helps a lot.

I really liked this hostel because the staff were really good to me. The hostel is good for young people and they have a really nice building. I think the area is full of clubs, bars, pubs, restaurants and is perfect if you want to party. The nearby rooftop terrace which is run by the partner hostel is great and they project the football matches onto the side of the nearby building-I really liked this. :) The 2 English guys who worked there were sound and I liked talking to them. Thanks!

Perfect location in the heart of the old town and very helpful staff that helped us with bookings and advice constantly. From speaking to other travellers staying here improved our Bucharest experience. As it is right in the heart of the action there was constantly noise coming from outside the hostel but I would stay there every time.

I enjoyed my stay here. The staff was friendly, and super helpful. It was really loud at night, because it's near a bunch of clubs and bars, so if you don't like loud music, bring ear plugs or something that will block out the noise. But otherwise it was great. It's super close to a lot of good restaurants. I would definitely go back.

Great hostel, everything is clean and new, big rooms and staff are al really helpful. Great location surrounded by restaurants and the old town. Lockers in rooms but no keys to the room door, it's always left unlocked but staff are on hand all the time. It can be a bit noisy from the entertainment on the street but that's to be expected with such a good location, nothing ear plugs can't fix! Would stay here again :)

Very well located in terms on being in the Old Town, but the problem is that is a very noisy area. The showers are very small and the toilets are a bit disgusting. In the other hand, the rooms are very nice and the staff also.

A beautiful location in the old town, staff are friendly and helpful with everything, stayed as part of a large group and they were extremely accommodating! The double rooms are palatial in size for what you pay, with stunning views over the streets outside! One complaint would be the use of the stairwell as a smoking area, but it's well ventilated and not much of a problem. Stay here!

The hostel is located in a great spot and is fairly easy to find. It did feel a bit 'cliquey' and for most of our stay it felt like there were more staff there than travellers so it was at times a bit awkward. Not being able latch the room door closed was sometimes frustrating as well, but that's an easy fix :)

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review our hostel. We are happy to see that you have enjoyed that location and it was easy for you to find us. Also, we are sorry that the atmosphere did not meet your expectations. Usually, during the day, most of our guests go out to discover the city so sometimes the hostel may seem empty, but it is not. We are fully booked most of the time :) Best wishes!

Hostel is perfectly located in the middle of Old Town, with max 20 minutes walking distance to the city center's sightseeing highlights. Can be a bit noisy at night though, but nothing you cannot sleep through when you bring earplugs. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Facilities overall are good, even though the 3rd floor toilet doors do not necessarily lock too well and showers (at around 11am, so that could be the reason) may be a bit cold. Overall, it's a good hostel.

Great location, nice rooms, and friendly staff. Can be a bit loud at night, which we knew going into it. Wasn't really an issue. Comes with the territory when staying in a central location.

Had a really great time at little Bucharest, it was a fantastic place, just in the perfect place in town, but still quiet at night, the beds were comfy and the staff really helpful, especially Cristina who organised the night out on Saturday which was great, she was aursome at getting everyone in the hostel to get along..!
