The Cozyness Downtown Hostel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 August 2014

I think this place is very appropriately named. When you walk in there's a welcome chalkboard that when I went had a drawing of Miku on it, can you get friendlier than that? I don't think so. Very comfy common area, very social and wonderful staff to make it a great experience. One of my absolute favourite hostels ever. I have no complaints at all! I will say it is very hot in the rooms, so if you're travelling in the summer be aware of that if you're uncomfortable in the heat.

Just a note - it's very hard to find, thus why they'll text you offering to help you find it. The key is to NOT TURN, but continue straight on the little street you walk down. It will make sense when you go. Also, be aware, it's quite a walk from Piata Unirii 2. Their directions make it sound like a short walk, but it's not really.

We stayed in Cozyness for a night, and while we had to wait for a flight to Canada during the next night (until 3am), there was no need to book another night, we could just stay in the lobby, use internet, electricity. Extremely kind of Marius, the host. Lobby is very relaxed, a bit warm but there are a few fans for cooling. Loads of free food (coffee, tea, pasta, rice), proper kitchen, (private) rooms are not airconditioned, but include a fan for each bed. Back garden is a joy to see and sit in the sun. Too bad it is closed after 11pm, but I presume this is to limit the level of noise outside. After we came back from Canada, we decided to come back for another night to recover. Recommended!

Room Tip: The private rooms are only slightly more expensive. They include a fan and are on the upper floor (l...

Pros: It's a clean hostel with a friendly host and when I was there I shared a room with a group of 7 very relaxed Spanish people. Furthermore, the common room is very inviting and a nice place to relax. It is also close to the tube, so it's pretty easy to get around.

Cons: It's not in the center and it was not easy to find (make sure you follow the given directions closely).

Beautiful, clean rooms, spacious shared bathrooms, friendly staff, close to downtown area. Fun atmosphere (but not loud or crazy). Would definitely stay there again; no need to look further for budget accommodation in Buchurest.

A nice, fun hostel! Very pleasant and helpful staff! Not sure I would classify it as being downtown, but its close a metro line so good enough. Good sized room and clean & if you like cats you're in heaven. Would def stay here again!
