Constantin is a great host: he gives great advice
 on what to visit in Bucharest, makes a delicious
 breakfast, and has always a friendly word.
His mother is an angel who took care of me
 when I got ill (thanks a lot!). The hostel is very
 clean, and although it is located not in the city
 center, you can reach the historical center of
Bucharest taking the subway (10 minutes).
The neighborhood of the hostel is quiet, with
a big Shopping Center, a beautiful park and
 supermarket nearby.

Filip from Belgium 5 aug 2017 94%
Constantin, who runs this small and very cosy hostel
(rather a private apartment), is a great person.
I felt welcome immediately, was offered coffee several times,
 and had some very interesting conversations with him.
The omelette for breakfast was great as well. While the
 hostel is not in the center, it is very quiet and has the
advantages of a nearby metro station and an excellent
 shopping mall with an extensive food court. Highly recommended!

Raphael from Israel 13 Jul 2017 9.4%
Very good hostel. Constantin is a super nice guy,
 he is very helpful. Breakfast is included (great omeletes)
 and the location is quite good, it's in a quiet neighborhood
close to a lake and a really impressive mall. There's also an
 amazing pizza nearby. Not close to the center though.
Not the best hostel for socializing with other travelers but a
really comfortable and trustable stay.

Guest from Germany 30 Jun 2017 7.4%
alles ok, Location einigermaßen schwierig zu finden,
 aber das lag wohl an meiner von Google Translator
übersetzten Wegbeschreibung. Auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert.

 This was a great hostel. More homestay
than traditional hostel vibe as it is in a small-ish
apartment. There are no locks on the doors to
 the rooms in the hostel, although the host was
always there and the door to the building itself
was always locked. Don't let the location put you
off, it's a short and easy metro ride into downtown
 and the hostel itself is in a great neighbourhood.
Right next to a mall and an outdoor market. Host
was amazing as were his free omelettes! Thank you!
 Will be back!

 Constantin is a brilliant host and a great cook.
 He's interesting and speaks flawless English.
There's always someone in the apartment, so it's feels
safe, but it also feels a bit awkward when you come
 in late at night. The omelettes each morning are well
 it... This is not a place to party, so don't expect any
cocktails in the bar...but it's a wonderful place when
you need
a break from all of that. Thanks, again, Constantin!
 You're awesome!

Great value and Constantin, the host,
 was very accommodating and helpful.

Host Tina worked nicely because I
wanted quiet and safety.

I was very happy to stay at Tinahost.
It could be little bit hard to find at the first
 time, but except that everything was fine.
 There is beautiful lake about 5min walk,
 and convenient to shop at big mall also.
 City center takes about 10min by metro.
Over all, host is nicest person I have ever seen!
 Breakfast he makes is so delicious! I would
definitely come again if I visit Bucharest next time!

Catalin from Romania 2 Mar 2017 91%
The host is really helpful, friendly and kind.
 The breakfast is fresh and tasty. Location
is really cool, less than 10 min walk from
 metro station and only 2 minutes walk to
a big park with lake and a shopping mall
with hypermarket. All good and highly

This is the best hostel that I have ever stayed in.
The staff are so nice and very helpful. Everything
is so clean and you have a wonderful breakfast in
the morning as well as many hot drinks that you want.
 There is a beautiful park and lake which is just a few
 minutes away. There is also a newly built shopping
centre which is by the park. The centre of town is just
 a few stops away from the nearby metro. The place
is also in a very safe part of town and also has fast free
 internet access.

 Roseanne from Australia 19 Nov 2016 80%
It's a lovely little place, short walk from
 the metro. (Bucharest's metro system is
 really cheap.) It was really nice to have
 a room all to myself, especially since it
 cost the same as a bed in a dorm!
Constantine is really friendly and helpful,
 and his omelette breakfast is delicious!
I did find the mattress a bit too soft
(which is okay if you like that sort of thing),
 and the pressure from the shower head
wasn't the greatest. But perhaps I was
 using the wrong one? Regardless, it
was great.

Nice for a couple-of-days stay for those who like it cosy and peaceful
Kasha from Poland 21 Nov 2016
Being rather an apartment with rooms to let,
 Host Tina may be recommended to all those
who want to find a nice place to stay away
 from the crowds. Located in the neighbourhood
3 underground stops away from Piata Unirii,
 with a friendly host who may give you a lot of
 hints if you feel lost in the city. Still, even
though it is further than other locations, you
can come back even quite late without trouble,
 Dristor area seems to be a safe place in Bucharest.

Jacek from Poland 10 Nov 2016 94%
It was a very cosy and pleasant stay - ideal for single
 travellers and couples, with a nice host and delicious
 breakfasts. No limits on when you come back. Seems
 to be quite far away from the centre but in fact it is not
 - it takes you 10 min to the metro and then 10 min to
Piata Unirii. If you come for the game at Arena Nationala
 - the location is also good! The area is safe.

Andy from U.S.A. 31 Oct 2016  97%

Not so much a hostel environmemt but more like
 entering a home! Constantin is a wonderful guy.
Friendly and gives advice and maps for Bucharest.
Nice quiet place to relax. Very clean. A little far
away from the center but close to the metro and
a huge modern mall and supermarket. Free
omelette breakfast every morning. I'd recommend
staying here.

Like staying with a friend.

It has been a relief after a month
 of traveling through Europe to
arrive in Constantine's care.
After a long day of travel he
 showed me to my room and
offered to bring me a cup of
tea to my room. I happily accepted.
After a quiet night's sleep
he prepared a wonderful breakfast
 of cheese omelette with sides of
 fresh tomato, cucumber and two
slices of bread.
While it's not your typical hostel,
it's more of a guest house located
in an apartment building, it's a
wonderful look into life here in Bucharest.
Constantine is friendly, warm,
and a pleasure to talk to. I very
 much enjoyed his company while
 he prepared breakfast and appreciate
 his generous hospitality. Even letting
me stay a few hours after checkout while
 I wait for my friends!
My many thanks to a wonderful host!

Andrzej from Poland 27 Sep 2016 97%
I recommend this tiny hostel. It is located
 in the multifamily housing district nearby
the beautiful park. To find it, you have to
precisely follow the hostel instructions.
The place is safe. The owner is very helpful
and serves tasty omelette. Best value for money.

Mark from U.K. 97%  21 Sep 2016

Constantin and his mother are both wonderful
 host and friendly. When arrived at the hotel
Tina was greeted by Constantin and provide
me with information for metro times, local maps
and recommend places to visit. The apartment
was very quite, clean and tidy, the room was
comfortable and provide towels and access to
 fast WiFi. I would recommend to have the home
made breakfast in the morning and this will keep
 you full for the morning! I would come and stay
here again if visiting the city

Constantin was the best host I've had,
and I've been in many accommodations before!
 He gave a lot of tips on what to do around the city,
 provided a clean and calm environment and also
 made an excelent breakfast! His omelettes are
amazing, totally worth it already for that! As a young
 female and solo traveller, I couldn't expect a better
place :D Thank you very much for the delightful stay
and I'm definitely recommending for my friends!

Fantastic stay at Host Tina!
 We came in late on the train from Kiev,
and were immediately greeted with a
 restful and rejuvenating atmosphere.
Our host was incredibly attentive and
helpful in recommending places to go,
 things to see, and how to get everywhere
 we wanted to go. Homemade breakfast
every morning was AMAZING, and a great
 time to collect ourselves and plan out the day.

Essentially a dudes apartment in an average location
Pim from Australia  stayed August 2016,
 travelled as a couple

Stayed here for several days in early August.
As the title
 suggests you are pretty much staying in a
 dudes apartment
 (Constantine also shares this place with I
assume his mother..)
 converted into a "b&b".
Luckily When we were there it was pretty
quiet because despite
being small it could sleep up to potentially
6 (+2 owners/occupiers)
to share 1 bathroom. There's a kitchen but
 it's not really a place
suitable for self catering.
It's located in the suburbs in a large apartment
complex area
 (apartment is on 9th floor) so it's a bit of a
mission to get to and find
when you first arrive. Several metro station
stops from main train
 station and city plus a decent 10/15min walk.
Therefore when you
head into the town centre you are pretty much
committing your entire
day there. It is however a very safe neighbourhood
had no concerns
walking around at night and has everything you
 could need in terms
of supermarkets pharmacies etc
I do need to point out that the owner is lovely,
 helpful, charming in a
way and multiple notes in the "b&b" attest to it.
 Ultimately however,
even with the pricing, I'm pretty sure you can find
better elsewhere.

Tis was the cosiest hostel I have ever stayed in, the host was so friendly and so helpful, although it is out of the city it is conveiniantly close to public transport and right beside the most beautiful lake!

Tennille from U.S.A. 94% 10 Jul 2016
Constantin was very welcoming and a great host. He was very helpful and had maps and everything printed and ready for us when we arrived. He also suggested places for us to visit including a pizza place just down the road (club 16??) which I would highly recommend. Absolutely delicious. The hostel was a short and easy metro ride into the main square (around 1 euro). The breakfast of omelette and cheese was delicious and came with fresh bread! The only prob we had was finding the hostel! use map!

Amin from Iran 89% 23 Jun 2016
Constantin is a very nice guy. He is friendly and takes care of all guests. Though the hostel is far from the city center or down town, it is located in a quite residential area near to a beautiful lake. I recommend using Uber to go from hostel to the other places because it is very cheap and safe. So if you take Uber, You won`t have any problem with the location of the hostel. It was a bit warm during the day in the hostel. This was the only problem I faced during my stay at Tina Hostel.

Jan From Germany      5th Apr 2016
Das Host Tina; ist weit mehr als ein gewöhnliches Host, denn tatsächlich handelt es sich um eine Privatwohnung, in der zwei Zimmer für Gäste eingerichtet wurden. Dementsprechend fühlt man sich eher, als wäre man bei Bekannten zu Besuch statt in einer anonymen Massenunterkunft. Einen großen Teil trägt hierzu der Gastgeber Constantin bei, der nicht nur jeden Morgen ein fantastisches Omelette mit Käsen und Kräutern zubereitet, sondern auch Karten und hilfreiche Tipps für Reisende bereitstellt.

I stayed with Constantin for two nights, and had the dorm to myself, which was a lucky break. It was quite warm, but there was a fan which made sleeping much easier. The hostel is in an apartment, and it is outside of the center, but the directions provided and the metro made it very easy to access. The price was good and they provide a lovely warm breakfast, and are very flexible with times for the breakfast. Constantin is also very happy to give advice and directions, and to have a chat, but also gives you your privacy when that is desired. A great place to stay.

The owner Constantin is a very nice, helpful and makes you feel really welcome. His omelette breakfast is out of this world and is enough to keep you going for many hours. Constantin’s Mother is such a sweet and wonderful lady who also makes you feel very welcome. There is a beautiful park just a few minutes away where you can jog or relax by the lake. The area is very safe and the room has a beautiful view. The metro is just a short walk and then only a few stops to the centre.

Your home in Bucharest
If you want a quiet place to stay with a lovely Romanian family, I highly recommend you spend some time with Constantin and his mother, Darina. I enjoyed my time at Hostel Tina so much I ended up staying for three weeks. It’s a short train ride to all the major attractions and there’s a wonderful park just down the road where the locals love to hang out. Constantin is incredibly helpful and a wonderful host. He spoils you with an amazing omelette for breakfast every morning and all the tea and coffee you could want.

l' hostel Tina est tenu par Constantin, un jeune homme de plus de 45 ans qui vous rendra tous les services qu'il peut....délicat, effacé quand il le faut mais bavard et adore communiqué....tu es doué....n'oubliez pas l'hostel.....perso je n'aime pas etre au 9 eme etage mais vous ne vous rendez compte de rien ; d'autant que la chambre est top et et le petit dejeuner vaut le détour.. Quand vous réservez , n'oubliez pas de bien noter l'adresser ....un rapport qualité exception exceptionnelle...

Feeling at home

I felt pretty at home there. Constantin is a good manager and interested in everything you say. He helps on every problem. I now miss the omelette for breakfast with his special spicemix. He loves discussing, and if you need privacy he backs down. If I ever need a place to stay in Bucharest I would ask him for the room.

Unforgettable breakfast
I know it's kind of late to write this review since I last stayed here in June 2011. I was actually planning to spend a few nights here this year while heading to my cousin's wedding in Roman. From what I remembered, the host was hospitable and everything was neat, clean and well-arranged. I had to say the breakfast (fresh and handmade upon wake-up) was amazing and one of the best I'd had for years. The location was a little hard to find in a quiet small community, but it should not be a big problem with a metro station nearby. Definitely recommend it!

With my approval , and at no extra cost, he took me on a brief orientation drive around the city pointing out places of interest. Constantine at the hostel goes out of his way to make your stay a good one. Hes very knowledgeable about the city and onward travel and the breakfasts is excellent and there's always tea/coffee and conversation available. The letters of thanks from previous guest show that many arrive as guests but leave as friends. This is more a home stay and definitely NOT a party hostel. A bit out of the city but easy access to the metro. If you are the type of traveler who likes to get to know a country and its people,history and culture at a very good price this is a great place to begin your visit to Bucherest /Romania

We can absolutely confirm the excellent reviews of Hostel Tina. A calm and clean place with a familiar atmosphere. Constantin is very friendly and helpful. He provides you with all the information you need to get around in Bucharest. Ask him for an airport pick-up service, as the metro only runs until 11 pm. We loved his breakfast and the discussions about running.

14 Aug 2014 100.00% Liked: Constantin the owner is extremely friendly and helpful, doing his best to make sure you're well informed and comfortable at the hostel and know everything about the local area. It may be a bit outside the centre but metro prices are so good it doesn't really matter. Hostel was always clean and tidy and felt very secure.
06 Aug 2014 91.40% Liked: The owner Constantine is incredible. He really makes a big effort and goes out of his way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. His breakfasts are also delicious! It is the perfect place for people not looking for a big party hostel!
21 Jul 2014 100.00% Liked: The owner, Constantin, was very genuine, honest, and friendly, and was more than happy to help out with anything that I needed. The room was very comfortable, and a total bargain for the price. A good breakast was included in the price also (omlette, bread, tomatoes, and coffee), making it even better value for money. The hostel is within an apartment at the top of a tower block, but is pretty close to shops and a metro station that makes getting round the city easy. As its a small hostel in a residential setting, I'd say it's most suited to people who don't want to party too hard (and all night). Overall: Highly recommended.

06 Jul 2014 100.00% Liked: L'hostel tina est vraiment un endroit agréable pour séjourner en Roumanie. Il se situe dans un quartier calme qui possède beaucoup de commerces bon marchés et un magnifique parc à moins de 100 m où pleins d'activités vous attendront. Les transports en communs sont aussi très proche (métro, tram et bus), et même si l'endroit semble loin du centre ville, la course en taxi ne coûte que 10 lei (soit 2,5 € !!!). Le propriétaire, Constantin, saura vous donner les indications et conseils nécessaires pour votre arrivée, et vous donnera toutes les réponses à vos questions pour orienter votre découverte du pays aussi bien sur sa culture que sur les lieux à visiter. Il est aussi un hôte parfait pour la vie de tous les jours, et porte une grande attention aux voyageurs, ce que vous pourrez constater sur le mur de sa cuisine qui est totalement rempli de lettres de remerciement. Les services de l'appartement sont de très bonne qualité, et le déjeuné est quand à lui inoubliable, je ne vous gâcherai pas le plaisir de le découvrir en vous citant ses recettes ;). Je recommande donc cet endroit à 200% car il le mérite largement.

The hostel is in an apartment block, which may be a bit confusing at the first time, but the hostel is really cool.
Firstof all Konstantin, the owner of the hostel, is very friendly and there for you, if you need something.
Furthermore tea, coffee and breakfast is included. The facilities are very clean, the rooms cozy and tidy and the view really good - an advantage of a flat in the 9th floor. ;) It was also great, that we could cook at any time and Konstantin's special spices are very tasty.
The metro in bucharest if quite good and cheap, so it is in fact not far away from anything you are interested in. Give it a try, you will love it!

We absolutely loved our week at Hostel Tina. Constantin was an amazing host, going above and beyond. Ensuring we had maps of the city, an understanding of the metro system and a list of places to eat, and see that reflected local life was a wonderful treat. Incredibly safe, clean, and comfortable. A large breakfast, nightly tea, and evening conversations with Constantin made our time in Bucharest even more enjoyable :)

My friend and I really enjoyed our stay at Constantin's apartment. We get to travel quite a bit and rarely get to stay somewhere so cozy and welcoming. It was clean, quiet and situated very close to the city centre. We very much enjoyed Constantin's company, especially his delicious breakfast. I would highly recommend this place! Thanks Constantin! Ali and Klevis

16 Jan 2014 100% Dear Constantin, Thank you so much for your exceptional hospitality! From the moment we walked in, you ensured we were fed, had tea  and ready to experience Bucharest , with maps and your personal notes. With the two of us being new to long-term trave, we could not have found a better hostel to start our journey - you have set a high precedent for the future hostels we stay in!
Please keep us updated on how your training, and the marathon go. We wish you the best of luck :-)
Once again, thank you so much! Your generous heart and love for people helped to make our visit in Bucharest more than we expected.
Keep in touch and do let us know if you are in Canada!

Small and cozy hostel, great host
09 Jan  2014       94.30%     Hostel Tina is a mixture of couch surfing and a hostel. It's situated in an old communist building which was renovated from the inside. The flat is very clean and safe.The host Constantin is a very communicative and helpful guy who really wants to make sure that you enjoy your stay :)Homemade breakfast and some Romanian food was delicious.Location is about 10 min. to Metro and from there ~15 min. to the center. But the Metro is very cheap. There's a nice Italian restaurant nearby, lots of supermarkets etc. - all good!Unless you are a party rocker and want to go clubbing every night, this is the perfect place to stay!
05 Jan 2014 97.10% Liked: A unique chance to see the "real" Bucharest, as you're staying in the ninth floor of an old communist block in a residential area. More of a home-hospitality than a hostel. Konstantin is a great host and makes excellent breakfast and coffee, and he is always happy to provide useful information on local restaurants, tourist sites, taxis or the metro. The nearby park is great for runners.
Disliked: A bit far from the center, but it was just a few metro stops away and easy to find - on the other hand it was great to be away from the tourist areas so it's not much of a negative.
22 Sep 2013 97.10% Liked: Great place to stay in Bucharest, with a lovely local host. Welcomed with tea and lots of information on how to get around, things to see and places to eat.Great breakfast the next morning! Not in the centre of town but easy to find (just follow the directions on the site) and well connected with metro lines just a short walk away.

12 Nov 2013     100%        Hostel Tina run by a woman and her son Constantine. It is immaculately clean, everything works, the bathroom is spotless, the wc works, there is also loo paper – what a boon – and 9 floors up so the view is great and a kitchen, clean, with lots of utensils and dishes to borrow, and a frig also for food. And the added wonder to this was that there was one room as a 4-bed dorm complete with free 24 hour internet and a private room. While I was there in the dorm room, a party of 4 italians came so Constantine put me in the private room and let the italians have a room to themselves. So I got 3 nights at the same rate of, I have quite forgotten, no, it was 50 lei or equivalent to $A22pn for all the privacy. Did I enjoy that and did I use it you ask?. You bet I really indulged self.

11 Oct 2013        100%        The hostel Tina is in numerous reservation site than hostel classified, but de facto rather a private apartment. But we were still impressed. The apartment is super tied up to the bucharest subway network and the young operator is super friendly and helpful in every aspect. Also the booked collection at the airport late at night has problem-free folded. The breakfast was wonderful and right in the port we were with information, maps and recommended day trips almost smothered. However therefore we could our day in bucharest wonderful plan. So if you know, what you bay, then this is the very recommendable

Constantin is indeed a great host! So welcoming,helpful and flexible. We so highly recommend this hostel for a fully authentic taste of true life in Bucharest. The 3km round park with huge lake at the end of the road provided a perfect balance of city life with nature,whilst providing a genuine view into the lives of the locals who frequent the park as if their garden. Off the tourist trail, we felt privileged to have this 'real' experience. Many thanks Constantin for opening your home to us and making our stay in Bucharest so enjoyable :)

Constantin is extremely helpful, tells you everything you need to know about Bucharest. Highly recommend going to the Pizza restaurant he recommends, best pizza i had in three months in Europe!

“Very helpful owner and great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

I stayed here for 2 nights and have to say that it was an excellent place. It's in an apartment, so a small hostel. Constantin who runs the hostel is very helpful and an interesting person to chat to. He takes a genuine interest in his guests and tries hard to make sure they get the most from their visit to Bucharest. The entire place was very clean.

I was in the double room which was nicely decorated. Breakfast was included in the very reasonable price for this hostel. You also have use of the kitchen and the lounge.

It's a short walk to local shops and some restaurants. The underground station is also only a 7 or 8 minute walk from the hostel.

I would definitely stay here again the next time I am back in Bucharest.

If you have heavy bags, consider taking a taxi from Gara du Nord (Constantin can help you with this so that you don't get cheated). I had to handle big stairways and poorly paved sidewalks with a 25 kilo bag, and ended up getting a bit lost due to the absence of clear signs.

He even got up to make us breakfast at 4.30am as we had an early flight, that was much appreciated! Organised a ride for us to the airport (not with a taxi because they will rip you off) and that was so convenient and safe. Great value for money. Room was small but nice and comfortable. This place is not the most ideal option if you're wanting the party scene. Nice lake nearby to go for a walk in the evening.
Disliked: Location - was a small walk (7-10 mintues) to the metro station and then a few stops to town. This wasn't a big deal as we've done it a number of times. The main thing for us was finding something for dinner in the area. Ok if you're wanting a kebab, McDonalds or pizza for dinner otherwise there are no other options.

Best of all, though, was the kindness and helpfulness of Constantin, who really went out of his way to ensure that I had a great stay in Bucharest.

Constantin (host) supplies you with all necessary and interesting information about Bucharest (sights, recommended restaurants, how to avoid trouble in a town like Bucharest). You feel very at home and secure at this place. The Hostel is easy to find by using the description (so I don't really understand the problem of some reviewers before). Host ist very well informed about onward traveling and always offers the possibility to chat.
Disliked: absolutely nothing to dislike for me and my girlfriend. But it should be mentioned that it is not to be recommended for persons who only come to Bucharest for partying. For all others it is the perfect place to stay!

04 Jul 2011 100.00% Liked: We had the pleasure of staying here 2 times - in the middle we went to visit Brasov. Both times were great and we enjoyed our stay. Constantin cooked breakfast at whatever time worked for our schedule and wanted to make sure we knew where to go before we left. He is also ready with maps for you when you arrive and lights on the beds so you can read or see at night without disturbing everyone. Do what the hostel requests and print the directions as well as the map of the neighborhood. We arrived very late at night and were able to find it walking in the dark so with these tools it should be no problem. This is not a party hostel which is exactly what we wanted and why we liked it.
Disliked: Nothing. We have stayed in many hostels this year and have seen many different things offered. Maybe hooks on the ends of the beds or a little pocket/holder dangling on  the side of the bed to put your eyeglasses/wallet/watch in at night might be helpful. Even still the hostel is wonderful without those things. =)
04 Jul 2011 100.00% Liked: Everything was great. Constantine was always offering his help or assitance without even asking. What is written here on hostelbookers - you get from him! There is a Hollywood Movie theater nearby in the mall which wasvery good for us. In a real Romanian apartment building complex. Free computer to use in room with headset,could also print for free. Kitchen to use. Quiet area.
Disliked: Nothing. Might consider getting a microwave to making cooking times quicker and thicker shades to block the sunlight in the morning - but just put your head facing away from the window to help avoid this - or bring an eye mask.
03 Jul 2011 100.00% Liked: The staff at this hostel are so genuine and nice. One was an elderly lady who was such a kind person who made you feel like you were at home,the male staff member was also very friendly who had a good knowledge of the city and is an amazing cook (breakfast was awesome). I felt like I was staying at my grandmothers house as it was so cosy. The inside of the hostel it is amazing, looks brand new, very clean and modern facilities. If you want to get blind drunk and be loud this is not the place for you.
Disliked: I disliked the fact that I only stayed one night here, should have stayed longer.
19 Jun 2011 97.50% Liked: Everything was perfect. The service is excellent (great hospitality) and the breakfast tastes very good. Tourist information is offered.

14 May 2011 100.00% Liked: Constantine and his mother are sooo hospitable and welcoming. It was a pleasure to stay there. You really felt like a guest, and they treated you so well, but still gave you a lot of space. The beds were exceptional - the mattresses had springs, not a limp piece of foam. Everything was spotlessly clean. Constantine cooks you an omlette in the morning, to get your going - ham, mushroom and onion. Scrumptious! The dorm has great views over the city as well. It's close to Dristor Metro Station, so you have access to the entire city by Metro. Great place. Highly recommended.
Disliked: NOTHING!!!
11 May 2011 100.00% Liked: The host is easily the reason this property is so good. He was friendly, makes great omelettes and i lost track of how many cups of tea he made me. The neighbourhood is an old communist era housing complex, but inside his apartment he has done everything up nicely with a nice bathroom and rooms. Only reason to not come here, is if you want a party every night, although the metro is close by to go out for dinner and drinks.
Disliked: Very little. I was skeptical and outside impressions could be bad, but inside its perfect. They have also recently put new parks and playgrounds in between the buildings, so the visual appeal of the location is improving, which will make this place very popular ;-)
08 May 2011 92.50% Liked: Amazing host and great breakfast! It's more like a bed and breakfast than hostel which was exactly what we are looking for. The host will give you everything you need to figure out how to get around and spend your time in Bucharest. Would definitely recommend!

Lesley from England
What did you like best about the property? The owner was really nice and friendly. We arrived quite late in the evening and he was still more than happy to help us. He provided maps and gave us a key to a locker for safe storage of passports etc. The owener also cooked breakfast in the morning when we were ready for it (which was amazing) and made tea/coffee for us. He also gave us lots of nice ice-cold water for our journey when we were leaving (very, very kind!!) :D

What did you dislike about the property?  The hostel and the owner are lovely but it is quite a small business. There is only room for about 5/6 people to stay so its not the ideal place to stay if youre looking to meet other travellers.

Liked: Constantin and his mother helped me and gave good advice about sightseeing in Bucharest. Also they provide a very nourishing breakfast of omlette and good coffee. There is a PC and multi - channel large screen TV in the dorm room. But this is really a cool living room with leather sofa. I was lucky and was alone on my visit, There is a decent food market and 2 good cheap resturants close by.

Disliked: Like 95% of Bucharest ,it is best to be back indoors by 10pm. Many places close by then, It pays to draw a small map as a reminder as the tall tower blocks can all look the same on the dark. There are many stray dogs around and they bark loudly at night though they do not seem to be dangerous. Just keep a distance! These are just observations on Bucharest and not the Hostel Tina.

-It's a very small hostel, so the experience is more like staying in someone's home. -The host (Constantin) and his mother are extremely nice, and can give good suggestions about places to go in the area, restaurants etc.. Constantin also recommended a movie for us when it was raining. -We got to the hostel very early in the morning, but were able to check in immediately. -Very clean -Breakfast is an omelette, which is a nice change from the usual hostel fare -Free tea/coffee and internet

Excellent facilities with a very welcoming staff to boot. I've stayed in Bucharest many times and this is by far the best option if you're bored with soulless hotels and looking for somewhere with a homely atmosphere. The breakfast is a real boon as are the facilities on offer. Constantin and his mum pay a real attention to detail and it's obvious they've had a considerable experience in hosting tourists. If you want a launch pad to explore the city with a base where you can share your experiences, and to be able to ask for advice Hostel Tina is definitely the place to stay.

It did not feel like a hostel but like staying at a friend's place. Plus through the location in a residency area one can experience the way romanian people live and not just see the tourist side of the city.

This was a good hostel. Not in the city centre, but a fairly quick walk and train ride away (about 20-25mins altogether) Staying at this hostel is a good chance to experience living in a typical eastern europe apartment so if you've never had a chance to do this, you should.

The hosts are some of the friendliest people we've encountered - they made our stay super enjoyable. The rooms were very clean and the bathroom was always fresh. The location is not so bad - but it is a subway ride from most places of interest. However, a subway station is just a 10 minute walk from the hostel, which we found to be rather okay. This isn't a party hostel, but more of a relaxed, super clean, small hostel. In a way, more like a guest house than a hostel. The hosts are also very eager to please, offering tea whenever you come home and willingly sharing some Romanian specialties with you. If we ever go back to Bucharest, we will definitely stay at Hostel Tina again.


05 January 2010

Home from home atmosphere. You get lots of helpful advice and guidance from the jovial landlord Contsantin who always offers tea or cofee as you enter -without fail! It is close to trams and the metro and a great open air market! PC in your room too!

Constantin is a generous host who made us feel welcome in his home. We always had great conversations with him and he was helpful in offering advice on Bucharest. He greeted us with tea and a snack upon our arrival! The place is a quick walk to the metro which will get you anywhere you need to go in town & there are plenty of ameneties within walking distance from the hostel - it is great to spend time in a neighbourhood in Bucharest you may not otherwise visit. I'd highly recommend this place to stay for anyone who wants to feel at home while on the road and who wants to learn more about Romania and the culture of this beautiful country as Constantin is a great source!

Franziska from Germany

Staying at Constantin's Hostel Tina is more like a home stay really - at a friend's place with all you could hope to find there: a warm smile, interesting talks, a good cup of tea or coffee, helpful advice on the city and country - oh, and for those who are on the rock side of life: Constantin's collection has great stuff on offer! The small and comfortable hostel is newly renovated and most probably the cleanest I've ever stayed in (and I've travelled a lot :-)). As to what the location is concerned, when getting there I thought it would have been more convenient to have stayed in the city center, but actually the metro takes you downtown quickly and I would not have wanted to have missed the insight into how Bucharestians live. The lakes and park nearby are a great place for a quiet walk or rest after a day in the buzzling city center. I will definitely come back!

Very comfortable hostel that feels like you are staying with a friend of a friend. If you are looking for somewhere that you can relax and chill out then this is the place to be - great set up in the dorm room (only 4 beds) with couches, TV, computer etc. The teas on offer are very good, try the mint tea with a touch of milk.

The Hostel is simply the best place i ever stayed so far. Is like been at home. Super clean, very safe, and a great place to meet people. Constantin, the owner, is one of the kindest persons i met in all my travelings. He will make you all the cofee or tea you may want, and even more, and explain to you perfectly all the things you need to know for moving around bucharest. If you are thinking about staying in bucharest, believe me, this is your place. Just pay attention to the indications when you have to find the place! is very well explained there, but you have to pay attention. I had a great time in this place and i strongly recommend it.

  Es war nicht einfach zu finden, aber freundliche Rumänen waren beim suchen hilfreich. Hinter den Mauern dieses Hochauses verbirgt sich eine wahre Oase für den Reisenden. Superfreundlich, superhilsbereit. Nicht zu toppen.
Wenn wir wieder nach Bukarest kommen dann hier her.

I have visited Hostel Tina twice, so now it is already very easy for me to find the place, and it wasn't too difficult even the first time.

The hostel is located close to a big park, so those who like to exercise outdoors will find this an ideal place.

My room had a flat TV with Satellite TV, a PC always online, Constantin was extremely helpful and I had the greatest time. Location is 10 minutes from the underground sttation, that for me is a bit too much, but in Bucharest taxis are really cheap so it wasn't so much of a problem. I will come back for sure! It's quiet and cozy.

It's a really good place to stay in Bucharest. It's quite near of the city center, just 3 metro station. The place is really clean, and the host try to do everything he can to make your stay as better as he can. I will recomend definitely the place and I would go back to the same place. Everything was perfect.

Constantine is the most helpful and friendly host I have ever encountered at a hostel. The rooms are extremely clean and have a great view over old Bucharest. There is free internet, cable TV, tea and coffee etc. It is probably the best place I have stayed at in my nine months of traveling.

Constantin was very helpful in my stay. He gave me maps, valuable instructions, romanian dictionaries and very good tea. The apartment is very clear and has all that a traveller needs. The hostel is not at the center of Bucharest, where you find the most of the historical buildings. But staying here, you will have an unique opportunity and will feel how the life is in Bucharest.

This hostel is based in a tower block that is common to much of the old eastern block. This should not deter you though as the beauty of this hostel is Constantin who runs the hostel. He is the perfect host being both friendly and helpful. He is there to accomodate you 24*7, and even got up for a chat until 4am one night, and got up at 8am to make sure we were up to catch our plane home. The hostel is very clean and has good features, and it is well worth a stay if you are visiting Bucharest.

The gracious and humble attitude of the host/hostess at the facility makes most Western Europeans feel very fortunate and glad they chose this option. Free internet facility which is very desirable but you will find most of Bucharest has free hotspots anyway. Very generous, helpful, considerate and obliging...Constanin, keep up the good work!

Customer review

The hostel was very clean and confortable, indeed it was like being home. Constantin ois very helpful and he is always tehre to aid you in what you need. If you arrive late, however, I suggest that you ask for a taxi at the airport if you dont know if your flight is going to get delayed. There is a lot of offer at the airport. My plane got delayed for 1 hour and my luggage took about 40 minutes to get out, and when I got out, Constantin was not there. He had agreed to pick me up for 70 Ron, but whe I called him and he got there, he doubled the price, saying that he had waited for me a long time. If you ask Constantin to pick you up at the airport, make sure that you do agree on a price and he wont change it.

It's a bit out of the way but not far from the metro stop- i was by myself and arrived late at night- have to say i was a bit scared trying to find the hostel late at night. But Constantine is a star very friendly.

David Gardner

Constantine is a lovely guy and very concerned that you enjoy your time there. It is 'just' an apartment in an anonymous nest of highrise but you are made to feel very welcome and the kettle is ALWAYS on. Beds are good and the lift has character. Hey, it's a budget hostel so you get what you pay for but it is clean, very friendly, and a good fit for Bucharest.


29 May 2007

Constantine is the coolest. He is really proud of his high rating and does everything he can to keep it. its 2007. why everywhere dosen't have a wireless router is beyond me. Constantine has one and a computer in each room, Personally, I really liked the location. I saw a part of town I never would have seen, otherwise. The lake, nearby is peaceful and I felt like Constantine was going way out of his way for me.

This place didn't feel like a hostel. A lovely small little place, Constantine allows you to feel totally comfortable in this city. From giving you metro maps, to offering you putting on DVDs for having your mint tea made for you ready when you get up at 6.30am. This place made my Bucharest experience much more special.

The place is very clean, there is internet in the room and you can have a nice coffee or tea together with a nice talk with the staff or the other travelers. It felt very safe, home-like and therefore closer to the locals way of living. If i get back to Bucharest i will book the same place. I definitely recomend it!
