Umbrella Hostel

Reviewed April 11, 2014

I stayed in Umbrella Hostel for two nights. If you were to look at the Bucharest city map, you would already notice that it is very well situated. I'd rather write somethng else here: In the first half a hour that I arrived to the hostel, I did the registration and payment as part of a regular administration. It started to rain and with a colleauge of mine, we asked where we could find an umbrella. The person in charge, with the coolest attitude of calm and steady moves, took two umbrellas from under the registraton desk and passed them to us with a huge smile!:) Real nice people, very helpful, very friendly and warm!

Room Tip: Ask the personnel, they are geniun with their answers! Remember the stairs are rather steep and turn...

The hostel is nearby the city center located. The staff is very nice and helpfull. They give you good tips not only about Bucaresti.
In the evening you can enjoy the atmosphere of the hostel in the courtyard. The rooms a clean and nicely decorated.
The Wifi connection is good.

I was only one night here in double room with shared bathroom, and everything was so clean, staff were very friendly, and I was so sad that I had to go after only one night. Toilets and bathrooms are super-clean, there is Sony Playstation 3 in the lobby, and you get a card to access a hostel, so it is very secure.

Stayed in a large amount of hostels from the excellent right down to awful. Glad to say that the Umbrella hostel was in the excellent bracket.

Extremely clean and modern facilities throughout the hostel, nice and warm which was nice when it was -7 outside! Very comfortable and brilliant facilities.

Staff were extremely friendly and very helpful, pointing out all the places to go during the day and at night. Caught up with us the next days to ask what we had done and how things were, particularly in places they had never been before so they could pass it on to other visitors.

Had an extremely pleasant 3 night stay here, if I was to go back to Bucharest and stay in a hostel this is the only place I'd go!

A great entry point to Romania. The staff goes above and beyond to accommodate. The private and dorm rooms were perfect, uniquely adorned and comfortable. All the amenities of the top hostels worldwide. Stay here.
