The hostel is really good located. There are lots of places very close to have some drinks or food. The cleaning was the worst of the hostel, the bathroom and the bedroom were very dirty. It is not even close to be cozy.

Here you can find a lot of people from whole globe. Great socialising party on rooftop and helpful staff. I fall in love with Bucharest and Romania. Really great place to stay. Definitely recommend . Viva Pura Vida!!!

Found several bed bugs in my bed, shoes and backpack the morning after we checked in. Packed all my belongings as fast as I possibly could and got out of there. Unless you easily make friends with bed bugs, I'll suggest you stay away.
