Very friendly staff, they offered to come with us and find the bus station as we needed to leave next day early in the morning. The rest of the people we met were equally open and helpful. The room was very clean and we were not disturbed by anyone. Positivie experience overall. The only point that I found weird and that you should take into consideration is that the reception is open between 8 am and midnight. So you may want to take that into account if, like us, you have to leave before 8 am

Dear guest, thank you for stating an amazing thing about us. We also love the view and we are happy that you have enjoyed it too. We hope we'll see you again soon in Bucharest. Best wishes!


Overall a good hostel with an excellent location. The doors to the rooms don't lock, but they do provide lockers. It's loud outside, so you'll want to bring earplugs. Bring cash - they don't accept credit cards.


Fantastic location. Clean dorms. Would definitely recommend.


Great location and comfy beds, but that's it. Staff (who don't have much tourism info) enforce noise rules in the common area. And while ear plugs can easily cover up street music and noise, they can't mask the loud late-nighters, whose sounds are amplified by the building's thin walls and creaky floors. There is no a/c which wouldn't be so bad if they offered fans. One fan was brought in on the last day but for six of us was not enough. Bathrooms were not clean. Don't recommend this place.


Our private room was spotless with working AC, working shower and toilet. Wifi actually worked in the room, etc. best hostel we stayed in, in Romania. for cleanliness, comfort, and working facilities. Would be nice if breakfast was included like most other hostels in Romania but that was no big deal.

Pretty good hostel, only thing was bathrooms on the main floor could be cleaner. Staff were awesome, especially Robyn, she's so helpful.
