The Antique Hostel is a perfect small hostel in the very city center of Bucharest with an amazing view over the river, the goverment buildings and Piaza Uniri from the windows and balconys. A cool palce to stay and hang out - specially in summer.


I stayed in the ten bed dorm - the cheapest option for arround 7€. The dorm was well equiped with beds, lockers, enough sockets. It was not spacey but also not narrow - just okay and right. Some of he smaller dorms looked more comy and spacy - so if you book luxury 6 or for 4 bed dorm you will relly have a relaxed stay. The bed was comfortable. There is a kitchen and some seatinga reas in he upper florr, a comfy living room and te balcony with a really great view over Bucharest center in the second floor and a fully equpied kitchen in the ground floor where you could even cook a superiro menü. Everything was very clean - including the bathroom.

The only negative thing was that the WiFi was a bit slow when he hostel was full in the evening and early morning.
