Great *NEW* hostel in Timisoara, great place to enjoy Timisoara and have a good night's sleep! Located in the center of Timisoara, near the main Victory (Opera) Square, it's the best place if you fancy walk in the beautiful center of the town, if you are on a city break or if you are on a business trip and require accomodation. Surrounded by parks, and near the center's pubs, cafes and restaurants at a 1 minute walk, it's the best place to sleep and enjoy all Timisoara can give. The new modern Business Center of the town is at a 3 minte walk, and the big shopping centers like Bega Shopping Center or Iulius Mall are also close by. The nightlife of the town is teeming with life in Union Square at a 2 minute walk, with it's outdoor pubs and cafees, and during the night the best clubs in town like Fratelli, Club 30 and Vanilla Club will rock that beat until morning. After party at Zambara Club. Enjoy!

The hostel is new, opened in 1st June 2011. It offers brand new wardrobe cabinets for all clients, High definition TV, fully equipped kitchen, outdoor table in the court yard, for eating, enjoing a beer, etc.
Prices are per person per night.
