I stayed there a week ago. From what I understood the hostel was under renovation and management has been changed. Central Hostel is very clean, stuff is very good. At 15 minutes walking from downtown.When I will return to Bucharest, I will stay there once again.

The Central Hostel is not exactly in the center, but that is no problem. You can do a 15-20 minutes walk or take a taxi. The area around the hostel is very nice - a beautiful residencial area.

the hostel is clean, the receptionists are kind, it's quiet, but the hostel is not in the center (20 min walking the central square). we booked this hostel because they said us that is in the center, but it's not. the staying was good but if you want to stay near the city life, it's not the right place.

Booked this hostel on the way down from Brasov at the last minute as it was the only one with online availability. Arrived late and the girl was very friendly and the place was clearly empty which made it all the better for us.

We arrived at 9pm and would have left straight away if we werent exhausted from a 48 hour trip to get there. The lady working there was rude and we seemed like an annoyance to her. Our dorm was 4 bunks, which is fine, but on one of the bottom bunks was a 50 something year old half naked man.... More
