The beginning of Crazy Duck Youth Hostel in Bucharest comes from a funny ideea !
Hi, my name is Andrei. Travel is my profession as well as my hobby. I worked in different travel agencies in Bucharest for last 15 years as outgoing manager.
But times has changed. Fortunately !
Last autumn I decide with my friend and high school mate Adrian to open a hostel in Bucharest. From the beginning we decide to create a home away from home for our travelers. This was the primary concept of Crazy Duck Hostel.
Our property in Stirbei Voda Street was quite in a good location for a youth hostel in Bucharest, between the main railway station (Gara de Nord) and the Old Town. So after a 4 month renovation we finally open Crazy Duck. What we get was an 8 room hostel with a maximum capacity of 26 beds. Each room was designed to have a private bathroom and no more than 4 beds. We arranged a nice recreation area with a fully equipped kitchen, a nice game room with smart TV and music dock and a garden terrace where we can enjoy a cold drink in a hot summer day. It is designed more to be a chill out hostel rather a party hostel.
So, the game begin on 5th May 2014 and by now we already had more than 1500 tourists who visited us. It is fun and we really enjoy to make new friendships and give as many information regarding our hometown Bucharest and our country Romania. This is the reason why many past tourists we had consider Crazy Duck Hostel as their second home.
We are waiting you as well with a beer from the house to share our stories about travelling – the most fascinating thing in this world.
Your hosts and friends, Andrei & Adrian @ Crazy Duck Youth Hostel in Bucharest
