This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I had a nice time at Friends Hostel. Its location near the main train station is very helpful when you intend to travel to the other nice locations away from Bucharest (Brasov, Sinaia, etc...) and also when you want to travel by underground in Bucharest. A few meters from the Hostel there is a bus stop from which you can take different buses to the historical city centre (about 10 min. without traffic, which is difficult in Bucharest!!!)
There is also a big Carrefour supermark (10 min walking) which stays open until 23h.
The people who work there are nice and willing to help you.
The breakfast is a litle poor in content. You only have bread, margerine, jam and some spreadable cheese. I consider breakfast a very import meal and I expected a continental breakfast with Yogurt or milk and cereals.
The internet conexion is very good but there isn't any microphone or headset to use with Skype or any other similiar software.
The beds are comfortable and the hostel is very clean.
Overall impression: 4/5
Thanx Chris, Vera and all that work there!
All the best!
