Directions to the hostel should be more detailed, nevertheless we could find it. It is close to the "OLD TOWN" which is really good. Also a walking distance to Unirii Square which is a good hub for METRO. The "welcome free drink" is OK. The only complain is that the kitchen is opened only from 9am to 10pm. As there is no breakfast included it would be helpful if the kitchen could be open earlier, so we could have our own breakfast and start the day.

Great Hostel, very secure. Is a bit of a party atmosphere and the walls are a bit thin, but still managed to get a good night sleep. Very helpful staff.

A good place to stay, easy to walk to the Old Town in around 10-15 mins and the 3 person room we had was clean, with a hot powerful shower in the en suite. Towels were provided along with the clean bedding. Welcome beer a nice touch and the Escape Rooms are a must do, really fun!

The receptionist was lovely. Very helpful and gave us some great recommendations. It's a pretty average hostel, could do with a bit of a scrub down abs a make over, but what do you expect for so cheap and 5 min wal from Old Town?!

I stayed in a twin room at X Hostel and I felt like it was worth every penny. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was big. It's a great location. If I came back to Bucharest, I would stay here again.

nice bar, nice staff, super atmosphere, the jacuzzi didnt work during our time, sauna smelled a bit. the hostel is not too dirty but it could be cleaned better compared to an other hostel in romania or other hostels in general. they charged 10lei for towels, other hostels offer it for free. staff was really helpful and always available! hostel is 15min away from old town and 5 mins from a shopping mall and subway. hostel is safe u cant get in without keys. the lockers didnt look safe though

Hello, and thank you for your feedback. Our staff does it's best to offer the best advice possible and always help with whatever our guests need. We do need to mention the fact that our hostel does not offer access to a jacuzzi and as such it is not featured on Hostelworld and is not mentioned as part of our facilities. I am sorry if you did not find the place as clean as you would have appreciated, and we will do our best to do a better job in the future.

Lockers in our room did not properly close with pad-lock attached. Could be easily opened when handle was pulled or twisted. Apart from this, generally no problems and would recommend.

This is a wonderful hostel, really cheap but amazingly comfortable! I would strongly recommend it to everyone (just note that there isn't a lift for reaching rooms with luggages)
