Staying in a hostel  gives you the opportunity to explore Bucharest in the very best way. Try to remember a few points when you are looking after your accommodation in Bucharest:

- Best locations are between Northern Railway Station and Old Town. This area is close to every point of interest but is not so loud or crowded as the Old Town itself. Beeing close to the main railway station gives you the opportunity to go easy in one day excursions through Romania

- Choose an old house cause it’s more cozy to stay in such a place but take care to be in a good shape

- Check the 3 main issues: how clean are the rooms, how good is the kitchen and how professional is the staff. The answers are on tripadvisor.com or booking.com reviews J

See you in our city ! We wish you a fantastic travel experience in Romania.
