Trotter's Den Hostel has the best location in Chisinau, on the main boulevard and very close to the city attractions. The staff and the facilities were ok. The only problem was the bathroom line each morning. There's just 1 bathroom for all and you may wait for 4-5 people's bath or wc needs.


The hostel was alright - I guess, there aren't any excellent hostels anywhere in Chisinau ;) The hostel is bascially a converted apartment. This is also its biggest drawback: there is only one shower and one toilet and there is no basin to wash your hands after using the toilet, if the shower is in use. That said, the atmosphere was good and the staff was alright.


The best hostel I have ever been. Familiar atmosphere, very helpful and always very well informed staff,wonderful breakfast. No problems with leaving stuff. Open24 hours.The best week of my travel. It's situated in the centre,5 mins to the bus station.1 minute to the main street. I recommend this hostel. Polish guy


The place is awesome. The only issue I had was that there was only 1 shower and 1 toilet. Besides that everything was great.


very clean. fresh air and very helpful staff

Great location,right in the centre!Lovely staff!Great value for money!


I booked two beds at this hostel for two reasons - low price and location. And it is exactly what I've got. The entrance to the hostel is very difficult to find, street signs are scarce. We ended up asking a local to call the hostel and ask for directions. The girl at the reception isn't very helpful in general. The internet connection is great, though. Free breakfast is ok. If you need a place to crash for a night or two, go for this hostel. Otherwise look for something else.


A classic example of a hostel: there is something for everyone to enjoy. The caretaker - a well-spoken young man - seems to habitually go an extra mile to get to know his guests and to help them feel welcome in the city. Nice location near the central market, good security and overall clean appearance, would recommend without reservation


I want to say that the location of the hostel is great, as it's near to all intresting places,Staff is friendly and helpfull. I liked it.


If you arrive in Chisinau and search hostel dont think much this hostel is for you!:) It is in centar just look from balcony you will see life in Chisinau:) Thank you very much!:)


Good location, clean.


The hostel is basically an apartment with one room having 9 beds and another room used as common area (only during the day, not at night). There is only one toilet and one shower. The location is excellent, in the city centre and really close to the market (where you can buy genuine food) and to the maxitaxi station.
