Very cool place with very young and cool staff (cheers to scott). This a very laid back hostel. The bar to it is really cool and right on the beach. The only slight detail that wouldn't justify the price are the showers. But apart from that, the hostel is right on the beach, and the staff is awesome!


There was overbooking so had to stay at other place but it was all arranged for me, no problem. Cannot fully review the hostel itself for that reason, it seemed fine when walked in for a minute looking to find the reception. The staff at the check in/ bar were awesome and the chill out bar was really cool place to hang out during the day and night. Everyone was very welcoming and going the extra mile which made Vama Veche experience even greater. Thank you all!!!


Loooved my time here! Right on the beach in the middle of everything. A mix of different types of travelers from everywhere. Cheap drinks at the bar, easy to meet people if you're traveling alone. Amazing staff. The kind of place that's really hard to leave!


Great, helpful and friendly staff, quiet and cool rooms, nice bar - and some extra info for the next person who wants to take the FANY bus to Brasov: you have to call and make a reservation beforehand. Cheers!


Everything was great except for the lack of cleaning. For 3 days the floors were not cleaned in the room.


Awesome hostel, awesome staff. Can't beat the location right on the beach.


It's all about the location with this place, it's incredible. The 8 bed dorm has the best view I've ever seen in a hostel. The downside is its extremely noisy, don't stay here if you're not looking to party as the bars next door will keep you awake. There is a security concern at the moment, anyone can just walk off the beach into the hostel without a key and the staff are all working in the bar.

Thanks for staying with us. There are lockers where one can put the valuables so there will be no worries. It is too bad that you had such a good experience and rated us with such a low score. Vama Veche is a party place and people come specially for this experience, there is no quiet place during the night in the whole town.


This is an excellent hostel. Great staff, perfect location and very clean. The chillout area and the bar are also awesome. Planned to stay for a few nights and stayed almost two weeks.
