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!

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.

A great hostel, with relaxed and helpful staff. Lucky enough to enjoy some homemade deserts and BBQ, felt very spoilt, just like being at home. Keep up the great work Cozyness :)

Great hostel. Easy to find and not too far from the centre. Very chilled out and cozy as the name suggests. Staff are very friendly and they even put on a free BBQ while I was saying there!!

I had a great time at the cozyness Downtow Hostel, the atmosphere there is just great and Marius is a great host, I felt like being at home with things getting taken care, like umbrellas, maps, taxi and even the printer for checking in at the airport. The location is also great just a couple of minutes of walk to the subway which is really close to Old Town!

Very cozy atmosphere, no doubt about that! It is actually one of the best I've ever been to. If there is something to "complain" of is that the shared rooms are not really big. So you might be in trouble to find a place where to put your things. But I think this is not a serious issue, they can always put some lockers in the halls, problem is already solved. ;-) Awesome the house has its own backyard!

Great hostel. I would definitely stay here again next time I am in Bucharest. Staff very helpful and friendly. Complimentary lockers with lock provided in your room. Outlets for every bunk. Good WiFi. Just a few min walk from Old Town, all the sites, bars, and restaurants. This was the first week in new location. The bathroom upstairs needs work but other ones are perfect. Hot water with good pressure. Great atmosphere to meet other travelers. Take advantage of free walking tour.

The name says everything, very easy going hostel, but if you want to party walk 10 min and you're at hotspot!!! Thanks cozyness for my good time there!!

When I arrived at The Cozyness Downtown they were in this new location for only a week, but everything was great. Location is excellent, few minutes from the metro stop, markets and 10-15min walk to the old town. Staff were extremely friendly. My only problem was the mosquitoes as they were everywhere, but I'm sure they'll solve this issue soon as they were still getting settled in the new place. Will definitely stay here again in my next visit to Bucharest.

Marius, the owner, is very nice (and charming!), but to me the hostel falls a bit short. It isn't really close enough to central Bucharest to be considered "downtown"; there is no coffee, let alone breakfast; and there is no sort of security. Great staff though!

Staff here are super friendly, eager to help out. We were there when the hostel was going through renovations so really couldn't say much about what it will look like in the future. However, based on the previous hostel I can't imagine it would be anything but amazing. Stay here if you are going to Bucharest!
