    When I visited Chisinau there were only two youth hostels- Central Youth Hostel, located very close to the city center, and a newer hostel located outside the center near a large mall. I decided to stay in Central Youth Hostel, as I thought it would be busier and more established. In retrospect, I suspect Chisinau Hostel (the newer one) might have been better.

    Central Youth Hostel is located in a small house on a residential street, just a few blocks from the main cathedral and the all-night flower market. The house has been converted- sort of- in that the original bedroom has now been converted to a six-bed dorm room. The hall has been converted to a reception area, and the elderly couple who run the hostel now sleep in bunk beds set up in their kitchen. Never having stayed somewhere similar before, I felt somewhat guilty and uncomfortable about intruding on their living space. To get to the shared bathroom you walk right through their kitchen and sleeping area; at night I noticed a cockroach in the bathroom, and overall the hostel was one of the least clean I'd ever stayed in (which is not surprising considering the age and health of the operators). Another disadvantage was that the woman who does most of the interacting with guests had very little knowledge of the local area or things that would be useful for tourists. The good things included the location (an easy walk to the city center, with an internet cafe nearby and a grocery store two blocks away) and the fact that with only one small dorm room it's easy to get to know other travelers.

    Directions: The address is Pruncul 6- there is a good map on Hostels.com.
