    only stayed for a night with my friends and had a very good time, it was a bit chilly outside so the hosts made a bonfire and we all stayed in the garden (would have stayed longer if it wasn't for my flight)

    I thoroughly enjoyed Hostel Costel. The staff are amazing! Even though it is low season now, I did have a great time. We all hung out and enjoyed each other's company. We even had an amazing carbonara cooked for us all. I definitely plan on going back, when I'm back in Timişoara.

    A very decent accommodation, staff is very helpful and friendly plus only 10-15 mins from city center. Big place plus they have kitchen and a large garden area where they invite you for bon fire in winters.

    this is a comfy hostel with a full kitchen, large courtyard, and cats! i got sick and had to extend my stay, and the staff were so nice and friendly and brought me tea. the one let down was that there were some bedbugs and i did get bitten a few times.
