Staff are wonderful and made my second visit to Romania memorable. They are very friendly and I will stay with them again on any future visits. Again, the advice the staff gave me concerning travel to other towns which seem close by on a map but in reality very far by train is great to know before I set off! I take any advice given to my by hostel staff very seriously and glad I do listen to them.

The staff(girls at the front desk) at the hostel need lessons in HOSTEL MANAGEMENT AND CUSTOMER SERVICE....especially the 2 girls working at the front desk....they are the worst. Refused to even call for help when I got sick - other disgusted travelled helped me instead. Those 2 girls should be fired immediately for that. Apart from that a great place to stay.
