I don't know how the ratings are so good!? There was one bathroom available for the dorms & other rooms? Are you serious? Who wants to wait hours to use the toilet, let alone the shower? The price is the same/more expensive than the other two main hostels in Timisoara which are so much better. There were no staff at...

The hostel is located right in the center of the city, near the Opera House in an old building. It was a charm to hear music in the elevator! It was very clean,the temperature just right for winter time and the dorm is very spacious and everyone gets a free locker. The wifi also worked perfectly and the owner was...

We spent a weekend at Downtown hostel. The location is indeed its best advantage. Also it is clean, well heated and with great hosts. The twin room was very comfortable, although the bathroom was across the hall. Highly recommended!

The hostel is small and can be hard to find but is right in the main square and an amazing location. Alexandra, the girl working was great. She invited me to the rock climbing gym she frequents and had a few nights out at the local bars. The owner Mikhi was very accommodating as well taking us to museums, outdoor...

Located in the heart of the city, but also easily accessible by car, big parking, 24/7 store, many cafes and restaurants nearby. Very friendly and helpful staff, homely rooms, everything was clean and in good condition. Enjoyed our stay and our morning coffee on the small terrace, would recommend to anyone.

I stayed here with my sister for three nights and we enjoyed our stay. The amenities are simple yet homely. Nice people and the location was excellent. A short walk to all the major sights, river and restaurant. Would recommend for people on a budget holiday. The only thing we didn't like was that our rooms were next to the...

Small and well-located hostel on the third floor of an old building on Victory Square. Staff is very friendly, although the hostel is hard to find and can get a little noisy when crowded. Wait until the elevator "bounced" twice before you exit.

We definitely enjoyed the stay in Downtown Hostel. It was very nice, cozy and friendly, with a good wifi and kitchenette, and conveniently located with a view of Timisoara's main square. The communication with the hostel was great even though we were running late due to a massive queue on Romanian borders. The owner of the place also helped us...

Stayed in the twin room for a night. Found it difficult to locate however . The girl on reception was really helpful and the location of the hostel was really good too. Would stay again good value for money in my opinion. One toilet and one shower could be a problem however but it wasn't for us !

My mother and I had a great stay at Downtown, there's a twin room, double room and an 8-bed dorm so it's a small hostel. It's located in a beautiful mid-19th century city palace right between the centre and the cathedral/parks. Took the twin room for the first three nights but it's not a very noisy party place so we...
