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!
