The staff were great, met alot of interesting people there.
Great staff, great atmosphere, great hostel! Close to the old city and very convient to reach with the bus from the airport!
Had a great stay, partied with the staff every night and generally had a good time. Really made my experience in Bucharest complete!
The price for staying a night and the distance to the actual center compensates well for the facility. The hostel has the convenience to pay with card and has Wifi, though the reception was only good in the bar downstairs. The staff is helpful and friendly, but I have been wondering how many staffmembers were employed. There seemed to be work in progress, which was needed because it was kindoff a dump.
I had a great time staying here. The location is perfect, the staff are friendly and helpful. They got a bar downstairs, which makes for a laid-back vibe during the day and party vibe at night. I've already stayed here twice because I liked the hostel so much.
Easily the best located hostel in bucharest the old city is just across the main street. i have stayed in a few in bucharest the facilities were not as good as the others but for location and nightlife can not be beaten
Good party hostel located close to all the bars and restaurants . Private rooms very nice .
I've stayed at a lot of hostel but this has to be the best! The location is perfect - just 5 minute walk from the centre and a big supermarket is even closer. The hostel was clean and interestingly decorated and there are a number of comfortable places to hang out and socialise including the bar which has the best couches, table tennis and cheap bar. The staff were also a good combination of professional and a lot of fun! If you like to socialise then this is the place for you.
One of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. Too much fun. The staff are awesome. Highly recommend the private rooms, which are better than a lot of hotels but a fraction of the price.
Big thanks to Declan and the Irish girls for welcome, had great night out in old town. Wasn't even staying here but had good reviews and my own hostel was not what they made out to be, will definately be booking here next time I am back Close to old town, main parks and easy walk to palace, outside beer garden and own bar
There's a really nice vibe to this hostel - staff were friendly, helpful but also really relaxed - made you feel like you were staying in a mate's house. Our group all stayed in the private rooms with bathrooms - these were excellent, very clean with TVs and air conditioning, good sized showers etc. Location is good - a short walk to the old town and the People's Palace - all comes highly recommended!

Really fun atmosphere and great staff make this one of my favourite hostel experiences on my whole trip, and I have stayed in many hostels!
Great place! Fun atmosphere! Always something going on. Do play the giant jenga game!
The staff were only as friendly as they had to be and never offered any helpful advice/talked about the facility amenities without being asked about it...it seemed like they were more into being cliquey with their colleagues than being friendly with the guests. The facility didn't seem too secure either - though they locked off the entrance to the hostel section (a bit inconvenient), from what I could tell the main entrance (nearest to the street) was left open for a good portion of the night.

dirty room and bed really was a deal breaker. left after just one night. if you are looking for a "party hostel" then i guess you get what you expect, but there are far better hostels in bucharest.
I had a brilliant stay at X Hostel. The location is great and close to the nightlife, the hostel prices are cheap (especially the beer) and the staff are really helpful. I didn't mind that there wasn't breakfast included as I had such an awesome time each night at the X Pub and surrounding nightlife, with staff and other travelers that I would have never made it to breakfast anyway. Definitely come here if you're after a good time.
If you're young and a party goer , this definitely is the place you want to be!! Centrally located in the centre, awesome staff and there's always some awesome event going on.
loved the place, staff was great and the place was awesome with a lot of atmosphere. had a great time with all
