After one week of traveling around Romania this hostel remains the best. It was easy to find via the bus from the airport and walking distance (for me) to all the city sites I wanted to see. The hostel was nice and clean with outside garden area. Staff were welcoming and helpful.

This is best hostel I have experienced so far. First of all, it is located in a safe, central area of Bucharest, very close to a subway station; second, it has very friendly staff, eager to help you, guide you; third, very clean, tidy and organized; last but not least, prices are very convenient. And they also have an excellent... More

Umbrella Hostel was certainly the best hostel we've ever stayed in. Everything is super nice and clean, there is basic breakfast all day long and the outside area is beautiful and quiet. Apart from all that the staff made our stay awesome. They helped us plan our trip to split instantly and sent us to great places in Bucharest. We... More

Most certainly one of the best hostels I have ever been to, and probably the best in Bucharest. The staff was very friendly and helpful; for calling taxi's, helping to get around in the city and with making further plans for our trip. The hostel is very tidy and clean. Definitely a good choice!

The location was wonderfully accessible to all I needed, staff were really helpful and friendly. The hostel was kept very clean. The bunk beds were very comfortable with crisp clean sheets. I loved the outdoor courtyard and its privacy from the street. I would definitely recommend it to all of my friends.

Not to sound like I'm bragging, but I have stayed at a fair number of hostels. This one easily fits into my top three. It's a well oiled machine with a friendly staff in a great location with plenty of room. The people running this clearly know how a hostel should operate. We ended up staying here twice (at the...

That must have been the best hostel I've stayed at. Atmospheric, at the heart of the city, yet quiet and cosy. Clean, elegant and well-planned from the architectural point of view. The staff was exceptionally helpful and well-informed, making our stay an ever nicer one. We will surely recommend it to anyone travelling to Bucharest.

This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at! Clean, modern, well-organized and great natural light but still with Romanian touches (spiral stairs, skeleton keys). Bogdan was so helpful with any questions we had and was just super friendly. Marco and Stefan were great too. Common rooms such as living room and kitchen were very conducive to meeting... More
