Very good hostel and very forgiving staff, even when a guest doesn't behave as expected (me ^_^u). Also, the private rooms are huge, clean and very Hotel standard. Thanks for everything

GREAT hostel. Definitely a party hostel - but they tell you that up-front. (That said, there are tons of second floor rooms and quiet dorm beds for those who want the other amenities!). The staff are committed to being fun, giving great advice, and helping you love bucharest (and romania). The hostel has a 24 hour bar that is definitely 24 hours. I found the whole place lively, relaxed, and full of a big range of people. Comfy beds, close to the old city, and full of fun other travellers!

My stay at X hostel was great. The staff are multi-lingual speakers and were very helpful in learning more about the city and the best places to see or visit. I will highly recommend this hostel to all of my friend. The accommodations are splendid and the spa,etc. were the icing on the cake of my stay.

Very good hostel! CIn the middle of the city, i went in the main place of the city by walk. The place is very safe, close to Unirii plata and close to the old city center. I enjoyed the night life also. the hostel staff were really nice to me and very helpful. i enjoyed the activities of the hostel (party + free spa). I will go back to this hostel for sure!

If you are a traveler looking to meet new people and have an all round good time, this is DEFINITELY the hostel for you. The staff are super friendly and accommodating, there is a great hostel bar, large common area, ping pong\beer pong table, drinking games, jacuzzi etc. The hostel is just a 5 minute walk from the Old Town. The only one (small) downside was no breakfast, but there is a huge supermarket 2 minutes away.

Great staff and atmosphere! Amazing common room with bar inside. Excellent private rooms, comparable to hotels' rooms. Few minutes walking from Unirii Square, and Lipscani street, where all the shops and pubs are located. If you are planning to stay in Bucharest, surely the best accommodation!

I had a great time at X Hostel, its biggest draw card was the social atmosphere. Was very easy to meet people with the staff organising events most days and there was always someone to talk to in the common room/bar. No complaints about the amenities either. Had a lot of fun hanging out with Kurt and the gang there.

Mike was an amazing host! He was full of suggestions on what to see and do, drove us around as it was the holidays with limited bus services, and always up for a chat. The room itself was large and clean, featuring a kitchenette. Recommended!

Nice and helpful staff. However the room was very cold and sometimes the heater did not work. One evening when I came back to my room, the door on my private room was left wide open. The staff was going around checking heaters but its unaccaptable to leave the door wide open if no one is watching the room.

As a non-drinker I am always sceptical to come to a hostel with a bar and party reputation. I was completely wrong! This place is incredible Curtis and Marcus were two of the funniest people I have ever met and Pedro and Katie were helpful in every way possible, by far the greatest hostel I've had the pleasure of staying at! Will miss all you guys and see you in June :)

The folks operating this establishment could not do a better job. The facilities are wonderful, location excellent, and atmosphere terrific. Most of all, however, the staff are just wonderful - you are always offered tea/coffee/rakija, can always chat and they'll even come out with you. Would certainly stay here again. Matthew

Pretty hard to fault - excellent staff and location, and the jacuzzi is an absolute bonus! There is also a guitar for those musicians who miss playing

Great hostel, super atmosphere and very nice staff. Rooms are warm and cozy,beds are very comfy. Even in low season, the hostel tried to entertain and involve everybody in activities and events.

Great location and can tell that it would be a blast in the summer. A lot of the staff are other travellers working part time on their travels, in this respect it was a nice interaction. The atmosphere was hit or miss depending mostly on the occupants. The full-time hostel staff seemed more focused on ensuring the buck was earned (which is a given but doesn't have to be so overt) than on improving the atmosphere within the hostel. In this sense it was a bit of a bummer.
