The location I love a lot, in a very old part of the city, with no tourism. Decoration show fantasy, the owner was very nice and charming. Beds old like everything in the house, but ok for the very cheap prize.Unfortunately we got some insects there, which can come into a 5 star hotel as well, but they have to be treated immediately and professionell. We wrote the owner a note and left, expecting a refund. Even so I want to come again, because I loved this atmospere. New color would help improvi


A cheap and cheerful stopover, usefully situated midway between he railway and city centre. Basic and quirky.


infested with cats we found people sleeping in our room at 1 point


The place looks OK from outside (nice yard), but I did not have a chance to try it becouse of overbooking. We stayed at another place. We got our deposit back in cash.


it's not easy to find the upstrairs guesthouse " the directions givin were wrong. there's only one room, 3 beds. they had to scare away a cat that was sleeping on one of thouse beds and told me i could move in. the room was poorly clean, the bathroom wasn't any better. when i asked the staff "one man i had to wait for" if there was still a shop open,he went all the way to show me."that was nice ". helft of the price should be better for this place, and thats still if you don't care.(.....)

I said on the begiginig this place is for nice people only i dont know who is the animal in this case my cat is very sweet you can see her in the pictures please never came back here how everybody like and you ...........for sure you make money like thath the other hostel give to you money to give bad rating somebody told me thath


Cristian is very friendly with their guests, I recommend this hostel if you need just a place to sleep without any luxury, in a really old building. The only thing is what is not the most positive, that the closest metro station is just about 10 minutes walk, however it is in the city centre.

Thank you nice to meet you


The room we had was not cleaned and also the shared bathroom and kitchen, but very cheap. Nice staff, wifi connection, next to the train station.

I loved this hostel! Clean, big room and great staff! Good location to, Close to the old town and thé trainstation.


We had a nice one-night stay in Olive. 4-bed room is really comfy and clean, we enjoyed it very much :) Staff is so friendly and helpful, you can ask them whatever you want to know. If you're looking for a big, spacy hostel, it's not a place for you - it's a small, comfortable hostel with just only a few places. On our arrival there was a mistake, because the owners though we'll come at 8 p.m. (we came 8 a.m.), but problem was really quickly solved so we would reccommend Olive Hostel!

thank you and i wish i will meet you again


It is starting, and if you just need a place for leave your things and sleep it's ok. They are kind and helpful.


We stay one night at this B&B. Please be aware that Olive Hostel and Frog Hostel arenot the sa, although at the same address. Olive Hostel comprises only two rooms and the person in charge is nice but seems quite untidy. When we arrived, our room was taken by another guest, that had to move. Some of the linen for bed were missing, and we had to complain to the Frog Hostel reception to get our promised breakfast. All in all, this place is cheap, but that would be the main reason to go there.

Thank your rating help me to inproove the things which you dontlike


Geat atmosphere and a really feels like a family. The owner's are a brother and sister team that really care about putting Romania back on the tourist map. Bucharest is a far safer city than people will have you beleive and this hostel is the perfect springboard from which to dive into it.

The hostel is ok, not the best of all, but it is quite centrered and the most most most important thing: the owner was amazingly nice with everyone.
