Good hostel - recommended


100%

Loads and loads of activities at the hostel from sauna to escape rooms! I played the escape rooms which were great fun. Staff really friendly and a fun party atmosphere at the hostel. Good location too, very close to the old town and its bars and restaurants, but quite for sleeping. Will definitely stay here again.

First off,too bad that there are only 500 characters per review because X Hostel deserves a lot more words. Hostel was clean and it can't be more closer to party places and X itself is a party!Booked one night, spent 3 because i just couldn't leave!Thank you Daniele, Flavia, Andrei and Irina for making my stay here a lot more interesting! Really excellent place and bar is brilliant! AC in the room in a hot day is a blessing! I will definitely check in on my way back to London!

Super-friendly staff, excellent room with a huge bathroom, very clean and nicely furnished. Much better than I'd expected. I'm not a "party person" and expected the hostel to be somewhat noisier, as it claims to be THE party hostel in Bucharest etc. But it's perfectly okay for any budget traveller going to Bucharest, even if you're not interested in pub crawls and jacuzzis. Close to the airport bus as well.

This place is advertised as a party hostel? Wow definitely not the vibe I got when I stayed there even on a weekend! The staff was not helpful nor were the very welcoming or kind, there were "scheduled events" like pub crawls and such that never occurred. Facilities are not that great, kitchen was gross, and the beds were not very comfy. I'm all for roughing it in a hostel if it's going to be a party, but x hostel bucharest is definitely not that!

Hi, Thanks for your opinion on the hostel. You came to Bucharest in days when we were almost empty. Some events like pub crawls dont happen with less than 10 people as we . In our description we do not use the word `party` or `party hostel`. No excuse about staff not being friendly, we'll change some of them soon. Facilities: I'm sure you enjoyed the free welcome beer, free daily sauna, 24 hours bar/reception and if bored you could've tried our Escape Rooms #1 on TripAdvisor

Big party hostel - only stay there if you want to party. Has a good bar with table tennis table. Highly recommend the "escape rooms" they are great fun and worth the money.

Great location close to the Old Town. Staff were really helpful and friendly. This is a party hostel so people were being drunk and loud all hours of the night. Some people didn't seem to have an off button either so were still creeping round still drunk from the night before midday the next day - grim!

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.
