The Funky Chicken Hostel

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Yes it's true: we offer Bucharest's best hostel beds!

No memberships required, no stupid rules we are truly independent!

The Funky Chicken Hostel in Bucharest, Romania is by far the best located hostel in town:

- 10min walk from Bucharests main station Gara de Nord

- 10min walk to Revolution Square

- 2min walk to Bucharests central park Cismigiu

- 10min walk to the second largest building in the

world: the Peoples Palace

- 15min walk to the new party district of Bucharest,

the old center around Lipscani street.

The hostel has mixed dorms and private rooms

(free linen and towels), a comfortable lounge,

free Wi-Fi, a safe deposit for your valuables,

a fully-equipped guest kitchen for self catering

(cooker, coffee-maker, microwave oven, toaster),

a big fridge (800 bottle capacity),10,000 Watt stereo,

TV with international stations and a DVD player

with lots of movies, a library and book exchange,

3 hot water swimming pools (shower size),

laundry facilities (2.00 Euro per load),

a cosy summer terrace, no curfew and no lock-out,

a night club directory... and more!

Our friendly English-speaking staff will hand out free maps and show you how to get to the main sites of both Bucharest (the Paris of the East, as they say) and

Romania (Draculas castle in Bran, the medieval cities of Transylvania - such as Sighisoara, Brasov

and Sibiu, the monasteries of Bucovina and the hippie Black Sea resort of Vama Veche).

Avoid the very expensive tours others offer and explore the city and the country yourself with our help.

Just ask at the reception desk for help and advice.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The location of the hostel was perfect! And the staff and service was very good!
The only thing we thought would be different was that in the dubbelroom, were two separate beds in stead of one big bed. And the room wasn´t very cosy and beautiful, but the shared rooms were better and the livingroom, kitchen was very good.
We enjoyed it there!
