Pura Vida Sky Bar & Hostel Bucharest Reviews
Great location but disappointing stay Jul 27, 2016
The location of this hostel is fantastic, you walk outside and within 30 seconds you’re in the main area for tourists – there’s so many different places to eat and drink.
However the hostel itself was a letdown. On arrival we were shown to our room and there was a guy asleep in one of the beds, we assumed that it was another guest; it turned out to be a staff member taking a nap!
The room we were given was glass fronted, so when people walked passed they could see in at all times and when the light was turned on at night it was pretty irritating. The door also didn’t lock unlike the other two rooms on the floor.
The floors all have access doors with codes, however our door was rarely shut giving anyone full access to the floor and our room.
The main reason we booked the hostel was for the kitchen, communal area and roof bar. The kitchen and communal area were shut and the roof bar was only open from 6/7pm meaning that there was nowhere to hang in the hostel apart from you room – where the air con didn’t work.
Overall I was really disappointed. If you plan on literally just sleeping there, then it’s a great place, if you like a bit of down time during the day I’d check that the kitchen / communal areas are available.
