Probably the best place to stay if you want to meet new people! Awesome hostel with only 5 minutes walking to the old town and really great staff. Bathrooms, kitchen, rooms is average, so not really any cons in my point of view.
The staff were great, so was the location and the atmosphere in the courtyard was really fun! Loved hanging out on the couches downstairs in the pub too. The lockers in the rooms don't actually lock which is a bit of a worry and the beer and laundry service was quite expensive but overall it was a good hostel

The hostel was spacious and clean in a great location. The hostel shrunk my clothes, I specifically told them not to put my stuff in the dryer especially my running shoes but they did not listen. When I told 2 staff members they didn't seem to care. Don't do laundry here. The pub crawl was fun.

Great bar area with giant Jenga, table tennis and lots of seating for getting to know fellow travellers. The pub crawl was really fun. I was in a large dorm overlooking the road and the window wouldn't lock and you could actually climb into the window from the street into the room. Great location right near the old town. Safe to walk home late at night.
Laundry service was slightly pricey, and the lockers were falling apart in our room. Everything else was perfect! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! :D
The hostel was good and the staff was helpfull and friendly. Our room was okay but nothing special. The only cons I have is that the lockers weren't really sturdy and somebody could easly break it open and that there weren't that many plugs to charge my phone . But the pro is that they have a ping pong table which you could use free of charge!
This Hostel was awesome. Close to the Old City and great staff! Their pub crawl is a great way to see the city and meet other travellers! The only thing I would suggest is that you ask how to work the lockers if you can't figure it out (they work, but it may not seem very straightforward)
Been to Bucharest 3 times and going back again! I always stay here! Love the staff and the location!
Not bad, nothing great. One guy had €600 stolen out of his bag while he was staying there. The lockers in the room don't work so you're up to sheer chance. His was unfortunate. Excursions are pretty expensive, and it's not a bad location, but you still have to walk a bit to old town. Otherwise everything was ok. Wifi only works in reception. Or this one little corner in the room if you hold your phone in a weird position...
Good place. Helpful staff and great location
Booked a private single room, and got a huge double room with a great bathroom. Staff is superfriendly, you get a free welcome drink upon arrival, and the common areas are great to meet new people. Very central to restaurants aswell.
This was a great place. Awesome atmosphere, good place to meet people (outdoor area and bar, pool table etc inside). Super staff too.
Walking distance to Metro station and major tourist attractions. Hostel has a bar, good for people who loves partying.
Very nice and friendly staff. The place kind of felt dirty all the time. It is a good hostel if you are into the party scene but not if you just want somewhere to sleep and store your stuff. They did have a storage room though which was nice.
GOOD - Most helpful guy at the counter, free welcome drink, 24h reception desk, nice and specious double room. Central, budget. NOT GOOD - voices of people sitting in the inner yard are heard in the room even with windows closed. The kitchen seams to have everything, but old and sticky, with tiny half broken fridge with no free space. Shower in a double room is for people 1.65-1,70m max, otherwise you have to stand bent.
Perfect location, friendly and helpful staff, great rooms. This will be my first choice if I visit Bucharest again.
This was a great hostel, they had a really nice bar downstairs which lots of games. Close to the old town for night clubs, bars & restaraunts.
The hostel is in a great location, 5 mins from the heart of old town. The atmosphere is always lively, making it easy to meet other guests, especially in the bar and terrace. The facilities are good, cheap laundry, large bathrooms with lots of showers and hot water.
