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 :)
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.
well run place several blocks from the main square. It is small (not many tourists in Moldova) with small kitchen (seats two) and enclosed porch/balcony as social spaces. My taxi driver delivered me to the front (back) door of the building. Others , according to other guests, were clueless about the location so you need the address to get there.
The staff was very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. Finding it from the bus station was hard as I couldn't find the first street mentioned on the directions. Once there though, it was easy. Make sure you download a map of the area around the bus station if you go that route. The bunker is really really cool. Definitely check it out if you stay here.
Great staff, lot of information and good position
