    This hostel was a big part of my Timisoara and Romania experience. People there will make you feel welcomed right away. Atmosphere is fantastic, people who are around are nice, fun and open minded! There is always some music, people who work there will recommend you stuff to do and places to see, they are helpful and like to be around. Place is comfortable, sleeping areas are clean, there is a big garden and few more indoor and outdoor places to chill. Great place to feel. ☺️

    This hostel is incredible, we arrived with live music going on in the garden and staff incredibly welcoming and helpful. Beds are really comfy and dorms very spacious and clean with big lockers, a good kitchen to cook for yourself and lots of helpful information around

    Loved it so much I stayed 6 nights and never once went into the town :) I was in need of some rest & relaxation and found it here. The staff and volunteers were great! Francois is passionate about the place and it showed!! The back outdoor area was a real seller for me when booking, however in reality the area was between organised social events (I think) so perhaps less attention was given to the maintenance of it. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

    Loved the music in the showers (so chill and made me feel super comfortable and at home). Comfy beds, nice staff and parking just outside on the street. I saw a lot of events they are having as well but sadly didn’t manage to attend any. A very positive experience.

    Staff was nice, and the hostel was cool, except I had bed bug bites all over my body after staying here (like more than 100!) That was so disappointing! I don't know if I would feel comfortable staying here another time because the bites were so bad :(
