Just an excellent place!


Just brilliant, 24hr bar, friendly and helpful staff and a perfect location. Definitely one of my best hostel experiences over the years and the group felt the same.

The staff are amazing and really made my trip. Would definitely recommend to all. ✔️✔️


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

Owner Comment (Hide)
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)


a slice of heaven


Great place with an amazing staff. I would come back just to merry a few of them.


Had a great time here hanged out with staff and other travellers and made travel buddies who went on to travel Romania with our group. Escape room located here is really fun.


Went in the winter so a different vibe but not one of my favorites. The staff was cliquey and seemed more interested in each other than the guests (volunteer staff). Ideal location though. Might be different with more travelers.


A big modern hostel which runs their own pub, not far from the center. Kitchen hours very limited (9-10) and even closed during this time. Good for party, not good for self-cooking.
