    By far one of the best hostels I’ve stayed at. The owner is so so so nice and does a lot for his guests, for instance plan an activity every night. We were only 8 people there, when I went, but we had such a good time together:)

    A super cozy, welcoming hostel with attractive style in the downtown of Timisoara. With several little additions and features it makes you feel immediatly in your new home. Hector, the hostelrunner was a dedicted host. Welcome palinka is only the beginning. I've witnessed here something that never before: he organized us guests to go out wit him and his friends into the Timisoara night. That's awesome. He gave good city tips. Hostel facilites were also complex: e.g.: holders and mop in bathroom.

    Raul is exceptional! He spent an hour helping me book a flight and Uber and was up at 7a to make sure I got to the airport OK. He is one of a kind. This is a small hostel, it has everything you need, is in a great location. It is clean and comfortable. I can’t recommend it more highly.

    Freeborn Hostel is the perfect place to stay in Timisoara. Raul has been the most helpful and informed owner I have met in Europe. He did a lot to make my trip smoother. It is easy to feel like you've made a friend the second you step in the door. The rooms are each unique designs and comfortable/clean. The prices are amazing for the experience you'll receive. It's also located very close to the main city and easy access to get on the outskirts. You can't go wrong with this selection
