Hostel Costel Timisoara Reviews

Hostel Costel Timisoara is a spacious hostel where you can chill out in their very big garden as well as in their big, stylish common areas to meet new people. It is perfectly located in nature near a park. Supermarkets are a couple hundred meters away.

The Location

Hostel Costel is in a good location, a fifteen-minute walk from the historical center of Timisoara and twenty minutes to the train station by public transportation. Timisoara International Airport is ten kilometers away. Wineries can be reached within thirty minutes by public transportation. It’s a two-minute walk to the public transportation (tram), which takes you directly to the city center in a very short time. There are several tram lines passing by, so you have almost no waiting times; alternatively, taxis are cheap, and the hostel can book these for you. The hostel is well signed, and along the riverside it’s an easy and beautiful walk.

Rooms and Bathrooms

There are two main bathrooms (male and female separated). The bathrooms are quite clean, however they are a bit far away from the dorm rooms. The showers themselves are great, with hot water, hair dryer, multiple hooks, and room for changing as well some power plugs if needed for a trimmer or something similar.

Multiple dorm rooms are available (with shared bathroom), including, six-, eight-, and ten-bed dorm rooms. Additionally double privates are available with shared bathroom. The dorm rooms are large and spacious; however the doors on the rooms make a sound when unlocking. The beds are very stable and mattresses are very thick and clean (the same goes for the bedding). Each bed has very generous lockers to keep your valuables secure (the whole backpack fits in, and you need to bring your own lock).

Common Spaces

The building has a lot of twists and mazes, and in little corners, there are random couches where you can chill out (there are multiple Wi-Fi connections, so you can connect anywhere). Wi-Fi works in the gardens and for the rooms. There is one kitchen, which is very well equipped with all utensils needed -- stove, microwave, oven, toaster, coffee machine, boiler, and fridge. In regards to an eating area, there is plenty space in the garden with an outside bar, BBQ area, and massive chill-out zone. The hostel offers a paid service for washing and drying clothes by machine. For drying clothes, a big area with a roof is also provided.

There is a separate room with dart and books to use. Beside that in the common area is a big TV and a computer to access. It is definitely a hostel to chill out in the outdoor areas, or to cook with new friends.


This place has an amazing staff and a good price. The hostel is spacious with a wonderful garden that you might never find in any other hostel; they are planting several things of their own, even a banana tree. The great atmosphere and couches and hammock outside make it comfortable to socialize or to just chill outside. You can have free coffee all day long in a wonderful kitchen, which invites you to cook as you couldn't do it better than home. You'll enjoy a dreamlike sleep on this very nice mattress. Flyers for discounts or promotions are handed out, and even the music that is played at the reception conveys a feel-good atmosphere.
