This was one of the best hostels I've stayed in! The staff was super friendly and helpful and the whole place had a great, welcoming atmosphere. The best place to stay if you're ever in Bucharest!


Loved this place. Only one issues, the directions. Just so u know, if ur coming from gaurd de nord. After #5 u take the second right, before # 6 u need to take another right on the second street. Adding this one step makes the place easy to find. I will stay at this place again this month. It was just amazing felt like being home. I definitely needed a break like that after traveling for months. We also went to the bars, not far. Had a lot of fun.


Wouldn't stay anywhere else, best hostel I have stayed at throughout Europe ! The staff best people so so helpful Marius the owner is the best bloke will do anything to help out ! Great shower hot water doesn't run out! Comfy beds I could go on all day! Stayed 8 nights didn't want to leave ! When I come back no 1 choice Love you all :) Jon Pintilie !

This Hostel is amazing had such a nice time and great to meet new people.


Enjoyed a great stay at this central hostel. It's cool, funky and laid back-a great atmosphere with really helpful staff. The facilities-especially the showers-are fab. Beds are comfy too. Fab!


Nice hot shower but was pretty dirty and had no clip on the wall so have to hold it bit of a pain. A walkable distance from the city, to get to the bar street is about 20mins speedy walk,

We're glad you you enjoyed the Hot shower while staying with us :). the hostel (bathrooms too) is professionally cleaned every day, but being a shared environment you may be right. so... all the best.


The reviews don't lie. One of the nicest hostels I've ever been to, nice staff, awesome room facilities and great help if you need and recommendations for the city. Only thing: the promised bikes were broken, but I'd still heartly recommend the hostel to everyone!


I was only here for one night but had a great night, The security is a bit lapsed where as the door is always open so anyone can really walk into the building and the rooms if they felt like it. Other than that the Staff were really helpful and the atmosphere was really good.


It was the best hostel in my life! It is literally essential coziness. The staff is friendly and helpful, location is good, lots of facilities and great atmosphere. I felt like I stayed at my closest friends' place! I think staying at the hostel is one of the reason to go to Bucharest!


Great place, friendly staff, my only problem was that the door is left unlocked all night which made me a bit uneasy, but I would stay again.


Staff were extremely friendly and helpful! Not far from the old town. The common areas are comfortable, and everything that you'd expect to find was in order, and I didn't encounter any sneaky extra charges. The one downside is that the lockers they provide are small and a bit awkward to access. Would definitely recommend!

A very relaxed and friendly place. The staff were very, very helpful. The beds are definitely very cosy. One issue would be security because if you're in the second building, there's nothing really stopping anyone from walking right in, other than the fact that people are often around. The bathrooms are cleaner in the main building. They have Wii as well!


perfect it is just literally cozyness. great hospitality I would like to recommend definitely


This place was very cozy. It is a bit farther out than we liked, but the design and hospitality made up for it.


The cozyness is more like staying at a buddy's home rather than a hostel. They do not have a front desk, but you are welcomed warmly by their staff. The living room is a comfy common room filled with bean bag chairs and snowflake the cat. Marius contacted us days before to make sure we would not have trouble finding the place. I've noted the security is low. The front door is not locked, nor is your dorm room, but I believe the home-like feel would add to someone's feelings of security.

Arr arr arr... First of all, you forgot to mention that all dorms are provided with lockers and free locks to use, same goes for computer, wifi, printing, bike (you heard me) towels and umbrellas.. just in case it gets rainy. more to say about security is that we are in one of the safest, more quietest neighborhoods in Bucharest, exactly on a closed small street, yet only 10-15min away from Old Town. This is safety and security ;)


Very friendly and helpful stuff. The room I stayed in was very silent, and I had a perfect sleep with no disturbing sounds - this is my #1 requirement in any hostel. The hostel itself is located in a quiet residential area, but not far from the city center. Good value for money.


Marius was super helpful, and the location isn't bad - ten minutes walk to the old town.there are drawers with locks provided for small valuables in the rooms. The shower was great, hot and steady! Finally, he has two bikes, but no locks.but there is a cheap bike rental place nearby - Bucharest is surprisingly good for biking! Overall, a very good stay!


Amazing place! Great atmosphere for a solo traveler, very easy to meet people. Nice garden out back. Staff was excellent. It is a little walk to get to old town but nothing to bad. I felt at home here. Kitchen is a little small but has everything you'll need.


THIS HOSTEL IS THE BEST. Cannot recommend it enough. The owner is awesome and so is the staff. Location is so good. Amazing vibes. Great people. Lots of love for the cozyness. Xxxxx pip
