I stayed at Umbrella for 2 nights on a trip across Romania and highly recommend it. Initially when I enquired about availability, Vali said the hostel was fully booked & recommended another, but a month later he contacted me again to let me know they now had space if I still wanted a room - great service! The guest kitchen and breakfast are great, the shower is amazing and the staff were very friendly. The location, near the French embassy, is central but quiet. I would love to come back to Bucharest and stay at Umbrella again!

I stayed at Umbrella for few days and it was a really cool experience.
The location is in a quiet street pretty much in the center of Bucharest. SO as soon as you come out most cool places are right in your face. So that's convenient! The hostel is clean and cozy, the facilities are new and well maintained. Everyone is very friendly and if you need any info or help with whatever you are in good hands. If you haven't been there yet, I definitely recommend you visit it. I know i will.

We were met with a warm welcome by the owners of the hostel. Three members of our group had reserved a room for the wrong day but they worked hard to accommodate us all. The facilities and service are excellent. Will definitely stay here again.

Was met with a warm welcome by the owner of the hostel when we arrived. Immediately impressed with the security of the place, the outdoor terrace and the perfect interior design. Have stayed in other hostels in Bucharest and this was by far the best, really good facilities, everything it says in the description. I stayed there with 5 other friends for a weekend - we were given great tips on sights, a walking tour of the city, as well as where to go for the best nightlife. No complaints at all, and the beds are super comfy!!
