I stayed at umbrella hostel with 3 other friends on october, at first we had a great opinion of this hostel, it was peaceful and neat. But on the last night there we got robbed, we locked the door of the room but when we came back, my friend's laptop was gone. We had to call the police and everything and we didn't find anything.

It was really dissapointing, we gave umbrella and bucharest a chance and we ended up robbed right there inside the hostel.

As you know, we are very sorry for the theft of your laptop and we have done everything in our power to help you. We have identified the thief and the Police are looking for him as we speak. This is the ONLY time anything like this has happened in our Hostel.
Each guest receives an access card to the main gate, a key for the room and a key for the security locker in the Room. We have 24h Reception and Security cameras to the entrances into the Hostel.
This will NOT happen again !!!
To our future guests, choose this place without hesitation.
See you soon :)

First the situation in very nice, near from the city center and close to the French Ambassady, which is good thing to know if you are lost. Then the place is very great, the share spaces are well-decorated, the kitchen has everything you need at any time, and the sanitaries are clean. But the best thing in this hostel is the staff! They are very open-minded, smiling and helpful!
This is great place to stay whether you want to rest or to enjoy the night life of Bucharest (near from good places). My advice ? Book now!

Well first of all the place is good, confortable, well located and with a very nice and helpfull staff. However we were robbed, even with the door closed somebody entered our room when we were out and stole our laptop, so the place is not safe at all. The crew from the hostel was helpfull and even gave us the security videos, the next morning They call the police to initiate an investigation, however the cameras only points to the entrance of the hostel, i recommend to put some cameras on the internal areas of the hostel. This experience ruined everything for us in this place.
