    Great hostel. Staff were friendly, very accommodating and showed me some cool things in the City, I stayed all night drinking in cool bars and club with the staff. Nice place to chill out in the day, it's more of a home than a hostel. Everything was clean and the Wi-Fi was great. I was only meant to stay for one night ended up here for 5. Overall a great stay couldn't ask for more! 10/10

    Nice stay at IQ hostel! The owner is really nice. He didn't speak English but there was a nice volunteer who speaks English. The bathroom is confortable. There are no lockers but it seems safe. I recommend.

    One of the weirder hostels I have seen. After an initial chaos during check-in, they managed to get us in. The hostel is very small, but the lack of size and rooms is covered by the really nice and friendly stuff, that takes care of you. It might not be a hostel for beginners, but for well worn travellers, you find a little gem just a bit South East of the City Center. I would definitely go again, but maybe next time book directly with them.

    The hostel is small but has everything you need. The staff is more than willing to help guide you to what you need. They even have a little something for breakfast (enough to hold you over until you get out the door).

    My views & feelings of this IQ hostel is very mixed. The directions on website on how to get to IQ from airport was wrong. Took me more than 3X as long to get there. Does feel like a house but was cool. Though unfortunately the atmosphere changed quite rapidly when the place become overcrowded. There random people coming and going all the time. Was 1 shower for 14 people. Air con didn’t work. Other stuff member had to be there as owner didn’t speak any English. There could be improvements.

    If you like getting drunk with Russian men, this is a good hostel to stay at. If you don't like that, or if you like having street lighting outside the building, a shower mat in the bathroom or any security at all then I don't recommend this hostel

    One of the 2-3 worst hostels I've been to (and I've been to MANY). Fix this: 1) Deep-clean the mold from the bathroom, the once-a-week cleaning woman won't be enough. Also, empty the used toilet paper bucket more often than once a week... 2) KNOW the city! The staff had zero info about restaurants and bars (just kept mentioning a pizza chain). I had to educate them. Also, the bus schedules to Odessa! Essentials.... Good: WiFi is fast, beds are decent, small dorm has A/C. So I did stay long.

    Very awkward location in city center compared to other hostels. Staff was kind but uneducated about Chisinau much less Moldova. The space is very small and as a result rooms become unbearably hot and noisy when anyone checks in or out at weird times. It was cheap at only 110 leu (about $6.50 at the time of this post) however I don't know if the price is redeemable for my uncomfortable, awkward, poor time in this hostel.
