This 90 year old villa has been completely renovated by us and transformed into the warm and cosy Hostel Costel. There are 3 shared bedrooms and one private room besides various common areas (living, More chill-lounge, garden, etc.). Situated on the riverbanks our location is close to the historic city-center, campus area and all the party places. If you are just passing by or staying longer this is the best place to start your trip through Timisoara/Romania! Less
