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!

Nice and helpful staff. However the room was very cold and sometimes the heater did not work. One evening when I came back to my room, the door on my private room was left wide open. The staff was going around checking heaters but its unaccaptable to leave the door wide open if no one is watching the room.

As a non-drinker I am always sceptical to come to a hostel with a bar and party reputation. I was completely wrong! This place is incredible Curtis and Marcus were two of the funniest people I have ever met and Pedro and Katie were helpful in every way possible, by far the greatest hostel I've had the pleasure of staying at! Will miss all you guys and see you in June :)

The folks operating this establishment could not do a better job. The facilities are wonderful, location excellent, and atmosphere terrific. Most of all, however, the staff are just wonderful - you are always offered tea/coffee/rakija, can always chat and they'll even come out with you. Would certainly stay here again. Matthew

Pretty hard to fault - excellent staff and location, and the jacuzzi is an absolute bonus! There is also a guitar for those musicians who miss playing

Great hostel, super atmosphere and very nice staff. Rooms are warm and cozy,beds are very comfy. Even in low season, the hostel tried to entertain and involve everybody in activities and events.

Great location and can tell that it would be a blast in the summer. A lot of the staff are other travellers working part time on their travels, in this respect it was a nice interaction. The atmosphere was hit or miss depending mostly on the occupants. The full-time hostel staff seemed more focused on ensuring the buck was earned (which is a given but doesn't have to be so overt) than on improving the atmosphere within the hostel. In this sense it was a bit of a bummer.

X Hostel in Bucharest, Romania was my first experience staying in a hostel. From that experience i will no longer stay at a hotel only hostels. X Hostel is right around the corner from old town, a great place to eat, drink and party. The staff at X Hostel never hesitated to answer our questions and definitely steered us in the right direction.

XHostel is the perfect place to be. Really close to the City Center and the Old Town (that's were all the night life is happening). The girls who work at the repcetion (Ioana Mihaela and Flavia) are very nice and friendly and they helped me alot finding street and buses. Also the volunteers always keep the party going. Love you all guys: Mike, Mitch, Pedro, Nick and hugo..sry if i forgot to mention any other.

Very nice place with excellent location (close to the Old Town, supermarket, subway). The staff were friendly and very helpful. We tried both the private rooms and the 6-bed dorm and both were spacious and clean. Cleanliness is above the average. There were lockers in the dorms but you are charged for the padlock. On the other side - you can leave your luggage after checkout for free. We did not use the kitchen and most of the other facilities so cannot comment.

Definately get what you pay for, this is a total party hostel. Facilities are good for the amount of people and things are kept clean, except for the kitchen which was always dirty. Definately best hostel in Bucharest if your looking for a party
