Nice hostel, with a warm bedroom. You have to walk for 35 mins to arrive in the city center. Lovely staffs.


We're very reluctant to allow us to store our luggage while we travelled the city


A great stay at here. Staff are super friendly. It's close to the train station and all the sights of Bucharest. Had a great time thanks !


flexible staff and wasn't noisy at all while i was there. good place for a short stay.


The hostel is just fine! Not something extraordinary, but everybody is friendly there and the atmosphere very uncomplicated. The staffmembers are very helpful and friendly, too. You can just pay cash there in Euro or Lei. The price is fine for what you get. I would go there again, so I can recommend the Funky Chicken Hostel!

The atmosphere in this hostel was flat , quite crippling actually . People seemed quite lost here ,their were no backpackers when I was there , only old guys bumping into each other walking on eggshells to not have a conversation, staring at Romanian TV in a trance not understanding a word .It is a cute looking hostel , great price and convenient location ,staff are polite but no so helpful , they need to engage with guests , have dinner nights etc free coffee and tea and throw out those TVs .
