Staying in Peaches Hostel in Bucharest, Romania.

It’s not that often I stay in two different hostels in the same city, nor is it often that I spend over two weeks in the same city!! But with Bucharest I did. I loved the vibe in the city and it was enough for me to make it my base in between all my side trips to Tiraspol, Chisinau, Butuceni, Orheiul Vechi, Brasov, Bran and Bucovina.

After settling into the excellent Little Bucharest Hostel (which is in the Old Town), I decided to try a hostel a bit further out from the city centre. Peaches Hostel is in a residential suburb, near the metro station Piata Muncii. It’s far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Bucharest to relax, and it’s on a quiet street.

It’s a small hostel which attracts a number of Romanian long term guests. This allows you to get to meet locals and room with them. It also only has 2 floors and is compact so you will get to know all the guests quite easily and quickly.

It’s 18 Lei to get a decent wash done. Believe me, after my trips to Moldova and Transnistria I needed my clothes washed!

5. Cool Staff

I hung out with Izzy and Johnny, from Brazil and the USA. Both were cool to chat to, and they are pretty good at yoga and exercising too!
