    When I arrived I received a warm greeting. I thought I could pay with card but it turns out you need cash (MDL) on arrival but that wasn’t a problem. I was still allowed to put my stuff down and find an ATM. Can’t say enough amazing things about this hostel! Safe, warm and comfortable.

    I have stayed at this hostel twice now, and it is definitely my go-to hostel in Chisinau. Check-in and check-out were easy and they were super accommodating when I had to leave very early in the morning for a flight. The hostel itself is very cozy. The 8-bed room is a little cramped, but comfortable for those who need a place to crash just for a couple days. There are cats that stay at the hostel, but they are very welcoming. Overall, this hostel is comfortable and welcoming!

    Chisinau is a calm place and I went there at the beginning of January on my trip from Bucharest to Kiev. The hostel was the perfect place to take a little break. The room and bed were comfortable, the kitchen offered everything you need and the owners were very helpful, could offer tips and took care on the safety and cleaness of the hostel. It's easy to find a supermarket or a restaurant in the surrounding of the hostel. I would definetely visit this hostel again!

    One of my favourite hostels ever, really chill and professionally run. Great place for solo travellers to meet new people. Staff are doing a really good job. One issue I had was taken really seriously and addressed immediately which was brilliant. And obviously kittens are a big bonus 😍😍 I miss them!

    I can't Imagine a better Hostel, it's very clean, friendly staff, very central, and OMG how adorable are the cats here! Even if you're not a cat person, I think it's impossible not to melt here! I think they hand picked the cutest, most friendly cats in the world! 🥰

    Cozy little hostel! Short walk to the main street. The room I was in was a bit of a tight fit, but everyone made it work. Shout-out to the staff member who worked overnight. He was very helpful and went above and beyond to answer my questions. Be aware that there are cats in the hostel if those aren't your thing. Very chill atmosphere. Overall nice stay!

    If you're allergic to cats, consider finding another hostel as there are 4 of them here. The location is ideal (7-minute walk to Stephan Cel Mare St.) and 10 minutes to Central Bus Station. Shoes cannot be worn inside this hostel so be advised you'll be taking them off/putting them on often. The 8-man room lacks space but has lockers and located next to the kitchen. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Overall, it's a excellent value but has a few drawbacks (cats/shoes).
