This 90 years old villa has been completely renovated by us and transformed into the warm and friendly Hostel Costel. There are 3 shared bedrooms and one exquisite double room besides various common areas (living, chill-lounge, terrace and garden). Breakfast is included in the price. If you are just passing by or staying longer this is the best place to start your trip through Timisoara or Romania. Read more

About Hostel Costel

No matter what your “purpose of visit” is, this is the right place for you. When you are not visiting the city, you can relax in our living room fitted with sofas and armchairs, cable LCD TV with X-BOX (including movies and games library) and also “old-fashioned” games such as boardgames, chess, dominoes, darts, cards etc. You may as well enjoy a free coffee or tea in our chill room (next to the fully equipped kitchen), on our terrace or in our garden (where you can also have a picnic). Before going out in the city, we will provide you with all the necessary information (what to visit, where to eat or where to party) and also with a bike. If this is just the beginning of your trip in Romania, whether you are looking for traditions or adventure, we will be happy to help you plan your trip.
