Very clean, great facilities, fun atmosphere, the common room/bar is a great place to meet people. Super close to supermarket, shopping, the old town, pubs, clubs and restaurants.

Perfect location. Staff were extremely friendly and could not be more helpful. This helped make atmosphere of the hostel a positive one. Bedroom was huge, facilities were excellent and property was clean. A bargain considering the small amount I paid for the room

This is a really nice hostel. The beds weren't that comfortable but everything else is great. The bathrooms are clean, the staff is pretty nice and helpful. The Wi-Fi works anywhere and it's very well located. Totally value for money!

Party hostel especially on weekends, so depends on who is in your dorm(a couple nights the people in ours were very inconsiderate not hostel fault though). Table tennis table, bar instead of living room, laundry 30lei, lockers, keycard access everywhere. Small kitchen though. Curtains around bed would be good

Solid location and good facilities. Hard to get a coffee in the morning though which affects some more than others. There was a stag do on for the duration of my stay which meant meeting people was tricky, nevertheless the staff were brilliant, Florin even took me to a Rapid Bucharest game with him which was way beyond the call of duty.

Thank you for your feedback. We do the best we can in different conditions. As a big hostel we sometimes get groups and it can have an impact on the other travelers, but we engage with all and try to keep a great atmosphere.

Overall a decent hostel, not too far away from the Old Town where the majority of nightlife is concentrated. Felt safe and secure, and the staff were friendly and helpful. As others have said, it lacks a bit of atmosphere. This could have been the time of year or just a quirk of our short stay. Serves as a good base for going out in the city, but probably not a great place to make new friends.

We would like to think we are more than a decent hostel. Thank you for your feedback and appreciation of all our great pluses. We do our best to create a lovely atmosphere for our guests but sometimes that depends a lot also on the other travelers. As we had a lot of groups during your time in the hostel, most of them did their own thing.

It felt really good. Made some new friends. Played pool. I like hostels more than hotels. you never get bored. Really good place to spend the night. Very close to city center. Like 4 minutes walk.

Wee bit of a walk from the nearest metro but the area is well lit and has a bank and small shops nearby so it's not very isolating. Beds are a little bit shaky when you climb to the top bunk so be aware and don't be scared. Staff were wonderful and helped with all my questions.

I only stayed 1 night, had everything you need I.e. Bed, toilet, shower, kitchen. It's a little walk to old town, but it's a good central location. For the price (plus a complimentary drink!) it's incredible.

With no sign of heating the rooms we almost froze to death. And the sheets had stains on them.

Hello. Unfortunately during your stay with us we had a couple of very cold nights in Bucharest for which we were unprepared, as our heating systems were in maintenance. We do apologize for the inconvenience and we can assure you and our future guests that our hostel is well heated at the moment and that the comfort of our guests is very important for us.

Good place! The pub crawl is a great way of meeting people and having a great night out. Staff was friendly, with just a short walk to the old town. Definitely have to do the lunch offered, amazing food and so very cheap! Stayed in a private and it was very spacious and good ensuit bathroom. Would definitely stay here again!
