well, only stayed here overnight, mostly dueto all the warnings i have had about bucharest... basically that its a bit of a dump and you dont feel as safe as anywhhere else really, and have to say i agree!! ok, didnt really notice the not safe part, werent there long, but it does look a bit of a dump. was very glad i could walk past all the people asking if i wanted a taxi and tell them no, from what i have been told they rip everyone off, locals or not! haha
the hjostel., well.. nice as it was, got a little to say on this matter!
firstly, why on earth would you accept bookings online if you dont have the internet and only check it twice a week! seems stupid to me, when we arrived, they knew nothing about us. but to their credit, they did give us a room.
secondly, dont stick a sullen teenage girl on reception, that will not get you a good name! hahga. however, they were generally very happy, friendly, and its a pretty nice hostel. so cant really complain.
the train station on the other hand! you would think that a train station in a capital \city wou7ld have at least one woprking sodding cash point! but no!
