What's the point to book a hostel if we can not have a good sleep (the owner received their friends and stay until 1am listening music, smoking and cheating). No problem if it wasn't a very small apartment. The owner waited us to arrive at the property to clean the room (we arrived 1 hour delayed) and he was in a bad mood that day. He gave us some information and that's it. I have no courage to have a shower.... Actually it is not a hostel but a apartment where he rents a room for tourists.
We really liked the in the centre.The owner of the hostel was very helpful and polite. We could ask for any help and we got it. We could stay in the hostel in late afternoon when we were waiting for late flight and it was freezing and cold outside. The hostel is small and basic-but you have everything what you need. It was winter and the private room was very warm and clean. It was great place to stay in for the little money. Also we had a great access for everything we needed.
I only stay for a short while in this hostel. Colin was helpful and very friendly. Definitely not a place for party but a nice and quiet enough hostel for relaxing after a tiring day.
The host is very great, but the hostel is not so clean. Our sheets were dirty and the shower too.
A hostel that keeps the feeling of a cheap -yet-nice hotel, conveniently located near Piata Romana (where you can get off in a bus straight from the airport). A real back packers' place, authentic and friendly.
Manager is always in a good mood and opened for conversation. Good place to rest, good place to spend a weekends and good place to learn about Buckhurst and Romanian people. Security and location is on excellent level. No problem to park a car near hostel.

This is a great little hostel, a good location and easy to find. The owner even cooked an authentic Romanian meal for me and the other guests- very much appreciated.
Fantastic little hostel with an amazing host! Had a great time, thanks Collin for making our stay in Bucharest a positive one :)
Colin was hilarious, really accommodating and lots of fun to talk to, such a character. Facilities were nice and it was very homey. Location was very good.
Hostel is located right in the centre of Bucharest really close to the main sights. Interestly, it is located in a rear court-yard making it also quiet for sleeping & really secure. The price offered great value while Calin really stands out with his hospitality, perfect English & well-travelled native Bucharest insightful-knowledge. Calin also pointed me in the direction of some great places to eat. I can highly recommend this hostel unless you have mobility issues due to stairwell entrance.
