The hostel is well located being about 15 minute walk to the city centre. T Staff are extremely knowledgeable & helpful when you need extra information on how to get to surrounding areas of interest by public transpor I would have no hesitation in recommending this hostel. One of the best hostel in Romania.

We had a wonderful time at this hostel. Stayed 4 nights. Everything was great. Decent breakfast. The dog, Zara, was awesome. Took her for a walk and got an extra free beer :). Good atmosphere as well with all the free drinks ;). Great location and clean facilities, a very comfortable stay.
