Suceava is an old, historical city, which is very close to Ukraine. Hostels in Suceava are several and they are all located near the bus station, which is in the center (some of them are within a five-minute walk). Suceava hostels are quite cheap and most of them operate on an annual basis.
Nightlife is ok -– there are some good bars, prices are low, and the local people are very friendly. Visit the Stephen the Great's Castle, the Village Museum, the Mirauti Church and the Church of Saint George, the Church of Saint Demetrius, the Church of Saint John the Baptist, the Zamca monastery, and if you have time, rent a car as there are many things to see around Suceava such as caves and more churches. The people at your hostel in Suceava will be able to help you; some of the owners even offer guided tours. And it will be almost as expensive as renting a car, but if you do so, you will miss all the great stories.
Train connections -- apart from close distances -- are not convenient, as Suceava is a bordering city. Take a bus instead of the train if you go to Ukraine. There is a small airport nearby but flights from and to it are not very convenient. Still, it is quite close to the city; there are only a few buses to Suceava, but taxis are not expensive. Unlike other Romanian cities, the train stations in Suceava (there are two!) are far from the city and you need a bus or a taxi to go to your hostel in Suceava.
