Retro is a home away from home type of hostel. I personally found it very easy and enjoyed having all Kisinev around me. It is located in a very quite environment just in the city center, and provided the break I needed for so long. Thank you Olga and Victor for the nice chats about Moldova and Transnistria in the evenings :)


nice, cosy place and helpful, kind staff!


Good clean hostel, right in the center.


Pretty standard hostel. Good proximity to places you'd like to go in town. It would be nice if there were more than one bathroom open, but thankfully there were very few guests at the time.


Excellent atmosphere and service provided by the staff. Come here if you are looking to speak to people and experience life in Moldova. Hostel can organize wine tours for you. Will come back!


It is impossible to find. The young women that run it are very good and try very hard. There is one shower and toilet for up to 10 people which is rediculous. The shower holder is broken. It is tiny and cramped and the common area is cramped as well.
