    A big wow! I had such a wonderful stay in Tapok Hostel. It is really cosy and your bed is made ready and waiting for you. The staff is just fantastic. Ol(g)a and Yana were always very helpful, advised with places to eat, sites to visit including how to get there and were able to call for you and book a trip or a taxi. Ola even joined me for a Must Festival in Cricova and told me a lot about local customs and helped skip the language barrier - true blessing :) PS. Take your own towel or pay 2$.

    The Best Hostel in Chisanau and Moldova. 1. Location is excellent. 2. Beds are very comfortable. 3. Showers and poopers are always clean and cleaned twice or 3 times a day. 4. Kitchen is big and clean. 5. Common area outside is great for relaxing and talking to other travelers. And last but not least. The staff are awesome especially ULIANA. She made me feel not just a guest, but part of the family. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience. Mr. right / Mr. right now.
