After two hours of searching for the hostel I finally gave up. The next day I went to the location and called the number on the post-it that was on the door. I could not reach anyone. I was well-aware the hostel did not have 24 hour check in but when I went back the next day to inquire it was within the time frame mentioned, yet the door was locked and they still had the post it to call and contact. Furthermore, none of the numbers on the website worked.

Lauren , thanks for your feedback and our apologizes for your entire inconvenience. First , I hardly believe that none of the phone no's worked , the office phone had indeed a troubleshooting that lasted for a while , but the mobile +40 769 684148 is always available 24/7. To find the hostel it took you indeed way to long ;should follow the directions mentioned on the web and you should have no problems reaching it from the train station with the public transportation ( as 99.9% of our guests have no challenges at all finding it.) in aprox 30 -40 min. It's a very low season and the reception hours are very limited. We waited for you to arrive at the Hostel till almost 7 pm - one hour over our closing time , but there was no show. That's way we really need to keep in touch with all our guests ,to know exactly the arrival time ( message including when booking with us ). Lauren, despite of all the trouble you had we really hope you had a pleasant stay in our city , we wish you a Happy New Year and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you any other time at our establishment. Angi, Mara Hostel Team owner.
