It’s not that often I stay in two different hostels in the same city, nor is it often that I spend over a week 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.
There are some pretty cool things about Peaches Hostel, so here’s a top 5 rundown:
Quiet street, close to a supermarket, easy to relax. Away from the downtown hustle hub.
2. Wi-Fi and A Computer
Blog away, Skype, keep touch with your Facebook buddies.
Cheap and cheerful. Bunks and lockers too of course!
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!
So yeah it was a fast few days in Peaches before I left Romania behind for Bulgaria…
Here are the details for booking Peaches, if you want a change from Little Bucharest. However, if I had to choose I’d stay in Little Bucharest – the location wins and it just seemed cosier! Safe travels!
