Cheap, clean, well-located with lots of friendly staff, this is a fantastic hostel. It's about a 15 minute walk into the centre of town. The rooms are very clean, the showers and toilets are very clean and there is a nice garden for chilling. Marius was a kind and helpful host. All in all, a great hostel!

AWESOME HOSTEL. I've traveled around for many months and this has to be one of my favorite hostels. Marius the owner is so accommodating and fun and willing to chat and help you with anything you need. Has a great cozy living room, dining room and kitchen as well as a patio out back. It's basically a house that has been converted to have a few hostel rooms. Lots of cats around and great people. It is a fairly small hostel so if you are there in the off season it might be a bit quiet but Marius and his friends are always around for some entertainment and there is a never ending collection of movies to watch. The location is great, within 10-15 minutes of the Old Town but in a nice residential neighborhood so it's quiet. Lots of little shops nearby to buy necessities, food or drinks (including 3 liters of beer for 8 leu). Could not recommend this hostel more - the staff is awesome, the location is great and it is exactly as its name suggest, very cozy!

The owner, Constantin, was very genuine, honest, and friendly, and was more than happy to help out with anything that I needed. The room was very comfortable, and a total bargain for the price. A good breakast was included in the price also (omlette, bread, tomatoes, and coffee), making it even better value for money. The hostel is within an apartment at the top of a tower block, but is pretty close to shops and a metro station that makes getting round the city easy. As its a small hostel in a residential setting, I'd say it's most suited to people who don't want to party too hard (and all night). Overall: Highly recommended.

A really comfortable stay, and great value - the cheapest accomodation I could find and the price included breakfast. The owner Constantin was very friendly and would go out of his way to help with anything.

This is an apartment smack in the middle of town and it gives you easy (walkable) access to most attractions. The apartment is clean, has a kitchen, a bathtub and coatroom/shoes room and i am pleased with it. The owner, Radu, is very polite and will give you every bit of tip he can. Ask him and he will tell.

Kretan Hostel is located in a quiet area on the north side of the Cișmigiu park. It is near to the railway station, as well as to the old town area. The staff was very nice and even upgraded us to a bigger room for no charge. The bathrooms were clean and the wi-fi worked well. They even gave us a small souvenir at the end of the stay.

I booked here for a few days, ended up staying about two weeks. The staff is definitely the highlight of the hostel. Eli makes a great job at creating an amazing atmosphere, where you just feel great to be there. The desk being in the middle of the common area is great because the staff ends up hanging out with the guests rather than just being at their desk at all time. It feels like coming home to roommates. Aside from that, the hostel is not in the city center but close enough, about a 25min walk or two metro stops away (5-7min). It gives you a good balance between having a place to be able to relax, yet close to the partying. There is also a staff working 24/7 and they were so cool about an early check-in. I got here at 5AM and got a bed that I could sleep in right away. I didn't have to wait until noon or 2PM to check-in. I cannot overstate how awesome the staff is and I don't think it is a coincidence that I have met so many cool people here. The owner makes sure that all the small things are taking care of and that makes a great atmosphere to be in. This somehow also attracted so many cool and interesting people at the hostel. I strongly recommend this hostel to anybody visiting Bucuresti. Fun fact: This hostel was also liste in the book: "101 places to get f*cked up in the world before you die". I only noticed it once I was already in the hostel!

For the fifth consecutive year, a lovely place to stay because of the beautiful garden with the 'tent' and tea shop. Not far from the centre but feels safe to walk to.

Brilliant location right on Magheru Boulevard, one of the main thoroughfares in Bucharest, and next to some lovely little cafes and the Athenaeum. The property is very clean and perfect for 2-3 people. There's a nice bathroom (the shower is great) and a TV with access to lots of channels, perfect for relaxing at night.

The place was really nice, the staff were lovely, really helpful! The location was good although in the snow it seemed a lot further from the centre than it was.
