Only once in a rare occasion does a hostel come along like the Midland hostel in Bucharest. First and foremost the atmosphere, a combination of the hostel itself along with the incredibly kind and welcoming staff and guests, is the best I have encountered in stays at over 100 hostels. RUXANDRA, ALINA, DAN, AND ELI are more like family then hosts and it's not unlikely that I would return to the Midland just to revisit the staff alone. My advice to you: STAY HERE!!!
I felt very welcomed the whole time, as the staff is more than happy to help you with everything. However, my suggestion for improvement are the bathrooms, which clearly need a refurbishment.
Staff lovely and very informative, friendly snd helpful. Good location

Great atmosphere. Was made to feel very welcome. The common area is great for meeting people which was great traveling alone. All the staff were really helpful and friendly. Thanks for a great stay
Good small hostel with a nice social atmosphere. Staff are very friendly and helpful too. Only downsides were no lockers in my room (apparently all the keys had been lost) though the rooms seemed secure enough, and the bathroom/ showers weren't the best. Other than that I had a really great stay here and would happily return
Loved this hostel it was a good stay, the staff were amazing always nice and approachable and they let us check in at 7am which was a god send after a long train journey where we didn't get a sleeper. Good atmosphere created and do the pub crawl. The toilets however were tiny could barely fit myself I'm but the showers were ok except you have to walk through reception to get to them so everyone knows your showering
Cool, laid back hostel, very friendly staff.
The staff are very informative and go out of their way to help you with everything you need. It does feel very homely as everyone is friendly and we all sit in the main room together chatting about our travels. It's a smaller hostel but they still have events written on the chalkboard that everyone gets together to do. Also, the fact that there is AC is a major bonus because it was extremely hot in the day, and the staff allowing me to turn it on to nap during the day was much needed. Thanks!
An Amazing Experience at an Amazing Hostel with the BEST Possible Staff ever! Helpful, informative, funny, cooperative, They might even go out with you once their shift is done! The small common area makes it as a family living together. DEFINITELY would recommend it to anyone visiting Bucharest. All Staff were AWESOME. I am not mentioning Names on purpose as ALL of them were Equally helpful!
A great hostel that is built for the original backpacker. Good location and awesome little balcony. A little rough around the edges, but everything is functional and more importantly clean. Ruxandra and Alina were great staff and always kept the atmosphere and helpfulness to high standards.
Quite nice hostel. Nice atmosphere and good location. Nice dorms. Different experience with staff. Especially one of the girls was super helpfull, others were more passive and not very accomodating. Negative experience was that during our first night there was a lot of noise outside till late in the morning (all bedrooms are adjacent to the common area). Nice kitchen with good facilities and nice ambiance. Bathroom was quite small for all people in the hostel en sometimes dirty.
it is a lot cleaner than it looks but that's just because of the building. the staff are so lovely and helpful. the common area is really cool and the beer tab is the best idea. I was only there a short time but it was a very nice chilled out hostel.
Fantastic friendly staff, good atmosphere, and great location.

The staff at Midland are just amazing. So friendly and helpful. This was one of the best hostels I've stayed in for atmosphere alone.It's in a great location and i would definitely stay there again.
Its a small hostel, which is great to meet new people. Good location and excellent staff who go out of their way to help people. Only negative was the small bathrooms, but no big deal as everything else make up for it.
Really helpful friendly staff. Nice small hostel with a central common room perfect for a lone traveler.
Midland hostel is a very great hostel. The staff is very friendly and made my stay so good. Thanks in particular to Alina Mariana (or Mariana Alina, I don't remember), who helped me a lot to deal with booking, taxis and other. (She also cooked breakfast for me). I had arrived in Bucarest very tired and stressed after a long trip, and here I have found the right atmosphere to relax, to regenerate myself and to enjoy the city.
This was at least my fifth stay at this hostel and I'm definitely coming back again! A big plus to the staff, without them it would't be the same. The hostel itself has a grate layout with an common area in the middle and all the rooms located around it so you always meet people and start a conversation. It's located 15min of walking from the city center and 4min from the subway and bus that takes you to the airport. Even more 15min from the main train station. For last a big up Ruxandra!
