We are in the heart of the city, just a few minutes walk from most attractions and public transport: Unirii Square and the nightlife district of Lipscani which is the pedestrian only Old Town. Our quiet street is the best starting point to explore the city!

PUB

Our very own pub and common room has Foosball, ping pong table and a giant Jenga.
We have local and imported spirits, wine and beer. We have 2 outdoor terraces.
We have a bitcoin ATM and a normal bank ATM in our property.
5 internet lines will guarantee you stay connected with family, friends and the world.
Beer prices in our pub start from 7 Ron.

In our pub you will also find T-BAR chill area where we sell quality Chinese teas and make tea ceremonies.

We can arrange wine tastings and pub crawls if you let us know in advance.

SECURITY

We take safety seriously at X Hostel: personal lockers, a combination of codes for doors, closed circuit cameras in most common areas and all entrances, security firm on call, 24H staff on-site. Bucharest is a very safe city where you can walk around at all hours especially in our district.

FACILITIES

X Hostel is located in a 1917 villa. We sport a great selection of rooms to fit any budget: small to larger size dorms, private en-suite twins & doubles (all with air-conditioning in summer time). We have plenty of showers and toilets so you'll never have to queue.

PLEASE NOTE:

- We do not have a kitchen: there are a stove and fridges available 8am-10pm
- We do not offer breakfast
- We are not a party hostel
- No laundry service (there is a professional one close by)

From the airport:

Take the express bus 783 to Unirea Square. Cross the square until you\'re in front of McDonalds. Turn the corner to your right passing near KFC. You will be on Corneliu Coposu Boulevard. On the left side of the boulevard, take the 4th street, called Balcesti. You will find us at number 9. X Hostel

The 783 bus runs also 24h, from 40 to 40 minutes and the price of the return ticket is 8,6 lei (make sure you buy the Express ticket, the only one valid on this line).

We do not recommend taking a taxi from the airport. If you do, make sure the meter is on. The ride shouldn\'t be more than 20 euro. We can arrange pick-up for cheaper!

From the train station:

Take the metro until Unirea Square (yellow line). Get out from the underground and look for the McDonalds. Turn the corner to your right passing near KFC. You will be on Corneliu Coposu Boulevard. On the left side of the boulevard, take the 4th street, called Balcesti. You will find us at number 9. X Hostel

Located Near

We're located right in the heart of Bucharest, in the center of nightlife, and minutes away from all sights. We're just two minutes away from the nightlife district, four minutes walk from Unirii Square and underground station which will get you to most important places in the city within 15-20 minutes.

For a comfortable stay in the city we recommend you not to book anywhere that isn't close to Lipscani: it's the old town and where ALL nightlife is.
