Important Information

Yes it's true: we offer Bucharest's best hostel beds for only € 8.00. No memberships required, no stupid rules - we are truly independent! The Funky Chicken Hostel in Bucharest, Romania is by far the best located hostel in town: - 10min walk from Bucharest's main station Gara de Nord - 10min walk to Revolution Square - 2min walk to Bucharest's central park Cismigiu - 10min walk to the second largest building in the world: the People's Palace - 15min walk to the new party district of Bucharest, the old center around Lipscani street. The hostel has mixed dorms and private rooms (free linen and towels), a comfortable lounge, free Wi-Fi, a safe deposit for your valuables, a fully-equipped guest kitchen for self catering (cooker, coffee-maker, microwave oven, toaster), a big fridge (800 bottle capacity),10,000 Watt stereo, TV with international stations and a DVD player with lots of movies, a library and book exchange, 3 hot water swimming pools (shower size), laundry facilities (2.00 Euro per load), a cozy summer terrace, no curfew and no lock-out, a night club directory... and more! Our friendly English-speaking staff will hand out free maps and show you how to get to the main sites of both Bucharest (the Paris of the East, as they say) and Romania (Dracula's castle in Bran, the medieval cities of Transylvania - such as Sighisoara, Brasov and Sibiu, the monasteries of Bucovina and the hippie Black Sea resort of Vama Veche). Avoid the very expensive tours others offer and explore the city and the country yourself with our help. Just ask at the reception desk for help and advice.
