The Hostel is located in the historical city center of Chisinau and a 10-minute light walk from all major city attractions.

The Hostel is located in the historical city center of Chisinau and a 10-minute light walk from all major city attractions, such as the National Theater 'Mihai Eminescu', the City Hall, and Arch of Triumph.
To make your stay comfortable, we offer three different types of dorm rooms: 10-bed, 6-bed mixed dorms, and a 4-bed female only dorm room. We also provide a well-equipped kitchen where you could cook your own delicious meals or benefit from an affordable snack-bar.
We love our backyard, and that's why we have made it comfortable enough for you to relax while spending nights of cozy talks with other travelers in the free air or, to simply enjoy a beer in the company of your Facebook friends. Sometimes we organize BBQ parties and hope you can join one as well!
Finally, if you decide to travel around Moldova, our staff will be more than happy to become your information center. In case you want to explore what only the locals now, you can join one of our numerous guided tours around this marvelous country!

From Airport:
Take Express Bus A (costs 3 lei) to Stefan cel Mare si Sfant Bvd. intersection with Tighina str. (get off the bus on Tighina str. station). Walk one block on Stefan cel Mare until you reach Bulgara str. (about 2 min). Turn left onto Bulgara street and walk four blocks up until you reach Mihail Kogilniceanu str. Turn right on Kogalniceanu str. and look for the Funky Mamaliga sign on the gate.

From CENTRAL BUS Station:
The bus transportation is not very well-developed in Chisinau. We use minibuses instead, called rutiera� or marshrutka� that stop wherever you ask them to or you could also access the trolleys or regular busses.

If you arrived to the Central Bus station you do not need to take public transportation because we are located just 10 min walk, very conveniently located!! Once you get off your bus from Kiev, Odessa, or Bucharest, find your way to the main street in Chisinau, Stefan cel Mare blvd. (you'll be walking one block either on Tighina str or Armeaneasca str.). When you have reached Stefan cel Mare blvd. take one block left if you are on Armeaneasca str. or one block right if you are on Tighina str (about 2 min) until you reach Bulgara str. Walk on Bulgara street four blocks up until you reach Mihail Kogilniceanu str. Turn right on Kogalniceanu str. and look for the Funky Mamaliga sign on the gate.

From South or North bus stations:
If you arrive to one of these bus terminals better take a taxi. It is not that far but quite combersome to come from there by public transportation. The taxi will cost you around 2 euros (35-40 lei).

From TRAIN station:
If you want to be fast take the trolley #2, 8 or 22 for two stops in the direction of Stefan cel Mare blvd. Leave the trolley at Tighina str (Telecom). Walk forward on Stefan cel Mare until you reach Bulgara str. (about 2 min). Walk on Bulgara street four blocks up until you reach Mihail Kogalniceanu str. Being on Kogilniceanu, turn right and look for the Funky Mamaliga sign on the gate.

In case you decide to come walking it will take you about 25 min. Turn right after you leave the Train station on Gagarin str. Walk on the main street for about 15-20 min in the direction of Stefan cel Mare blv. (in your way you will pass Cosmos hotel, than you will go up the hill and will pass Chisinau hotel and then will pass Telecom center). After you pass the Telecom building walk forward on Stefan cel Mare until you reach Bulgara str. (about 2 min). Walk on Bulgara street four blocks up until you reach Mihail Kogilniceanu str. Being on Kogilniceanu, turn right and look for the Funky Mamaliga sign on the gate.

By Taxi:
If you take the taxi from the airport (13 km), make sure you use the services of the taxi stand within the airport. It will take around 20-30 minutes to get to the Hostel and it will cost you between 70-220 lei (depending on the taxi company used and time of the day/night).

THE EASIEST WAY
Write us in advance that you need pick up and our team will send a car to pick you up from wherever point of your arrival.
