Liked: It was cheap and close to the centre. For one night it was OK.

Disliked: Direction on Google maps. Even there is right address Pruncul 6. The Google maps shows different location. So I got lost from the begining.

Liked: Good value place to stay in Chisinau, as there aren't many budget options available. Very safe and secure.

Disliked: While nothing in the description about this place is an outright lie, it was not as good as it sounds: No Lockout - if you pay 50MLD key deposit. Free coffe and tea - never shown where this was kept, and the kitchen was the owner's cooking area, so quite often busy. Free map of city - stuck to the wall, and there are no copies to hand out.Free orientation tour - never offered this, but I was initally let in by an older woman who spoke no English.The 'cozy bathroom' - the only bathroom in the property is located at the rear of the house, after you pass through the owners sleeping & kitchen quarters. So obviously to use this at late night/early morning feels like a massive imposition, as you are entering their bedroom.And there is no sign outside the place, but yes, it really is No. 6 Strada Ion Pruncul. I was lucky to catch the owner leaving the street when I arrived - my rucksack must have been a clue that I was a guest!

Liked: Not too much. Perhaps the locations once we found the place.

Disliked: The directions were wrong and when we got there, there wasn't even a sign indicating that there was a hostel - very frustrating. The bathroom was dirty, there were constantly cigarette butts in the toilet and on the bathroom counter top. The kitchen was messy, and was shared with a bedroom. The owner was very nice, but it was not run well.

Liked: It was close to the city center. The owner was a nice woman, who is learning English but does understand quite a bit. She will help you with finding the information you need around the city and transport, etc. One of the only hostel in the city, and for a good price.

Disliked: It was an apartment that you share with the owner. The one room is cramped with 6 beds squeezed into it. There is a small loft with 2 beds, and then another location in bed right by the owner herself. The appliances are old and bathroom. It is relatively clean. The kitchen can be used but is really inconvenient.

Liked: Good location in a residetial area close to the centre.It was small and homely and the owner was very helpful in supporting guests to plan the next part of their trip. The owner lives here with her son, who is very well behaved, so this may not be suitable for partying or excessive vodka drinking, which is fine by me!

Disliked: It is a very cramped flat. Also, although clean, there is a faint smell of pee in the bathroom.
