Staff were extremely friendly, and helpful. Hostal is ideally located for transit through Bucharest onto other destinations.


One of the best hostels I've stayed at so far. Staff is very nice and has all the information you might need.Midland has all the facilities, including the details such as postcards/stamps and a currency exchange.Very pleasant atmosphere.


This joint is amazing, I'm still here!! Tones of communal stuff, self managed tabs and a really awesome common area and well equiped kitchen. And really close to the metro, not that you really need it.


The staff was phenomenal and had things to do organized every night! Very social hostel with good vibes and a full kitchen.


Fun place, out side the noise area but close to get everywhere fast, over the top staff. Fun and friendly lots of sedjustion of things to see and do even saw a movie.


it was such a chilled out place to stay. the staff were really helpful and you felt like you were at home. i would definitely stay there again


Super cozy place which made for a very welcoming and friendly environment! I appreciated the great hospitality of the staff, especially Alina (: The location is perfect; the hostel provides postcards and stamps. The shower stalls have a little hole in the dividing walls because a horizontal pipe runs through the stalls, so keep that in mind when you're getting ready to bathe!

Comfy beds, great common area and kitchen. Location was excellent, 10 mins walk from Old Town and Station. Some cool bars nearby! Eli gave great recommendations on what to do, and where to eat and drink. Also, the envelope money exchange is a great idea. Overall highly recommended!


Best hostel staff I've encountered so far :)


The only issue would be the big school group that was booked in. Kids in a hostel not a great idea

Owner Comment (Hide)
We're extremely sorry about that. Our policy is that we don't allow children unless the group takes the whole hostel, so as not to dampen the lively atmosphere that we normally have. We got surprised by this group having kids (no mention on the reservation) and there's nothing we could do but let them stay as they had rented 75% of the hostel. We will be more vigilant in the future and we hope the rest of your travels go swimmingly.


All of the dorms (spacious rooms, comfy beds) are facing a common area, which fosters interaction among the guests. I liked the lounge music they played, giant map of the world on the wall to explain where you are from or show off where to you have traveled and cool idea with improvised currency exchange. Large equipped kitchen to cook your meals. Located in a quiet and secure area. The only drawback - mixed showers and toilets are little cramped.


Really great stay in central Bucharest. All staff were very helpful in finding us places to eat/drink/go out - we really appreciated that! Thanks a lot guys - it's a great hostel.


Many thanks to Alina for her great support and kindness during our stay

I've stayed 5 days at this hostel and had a brillant time. The hostel seems to be magnetic to nice and interesting people and with the advice you get there, you won't ever get bored. Also, the star-shaped arrangement of the rooms with the common area in the center and also the size of the hostel are perfect for meeting other travellers. But what's even better is the staff: nice, funny, helpful, welcoming, easygoing. Thanks to Eli and Ruxana, and special thanks to Alina! See you next time! :)


Very helpful and friendly staff to everyone with any info you need!Thats very nice!Also great,that bedrooms is with air conditioner,only in salon was extremely hot,recommend to put at least some air fan.Funny atmosphere..


I wouldn't be exaggerating if I said that this was the best hostel I've ever stayed at. The staff were nice, interesting people, who made you feel welcome and were very helpful. The location is convenient in terms of proximity to pretty much everything that you might need, and if something is not easily accessible, the staff will explain how to get to where you need to go.

I had a great time! The hotel has only pluses: welcoming and very helpful stuff , excellent location and the place was clean!


I loved Midland and it is because of its staff and the little details. I booked a few days, ended up staying a total of 2 weeks. The best feature is the common area, all rooms open to it and the reception is in there too so the staff hangs out with the guests, it really creates an awesome atmosphere. The staff also works hard to make your stay as comfortable as possible as opposed to get every single penny from you. Eli brought his own clipper from home for me and another guest to shave our hair


Nice hostel. Great staff. Near the centre! Romanian women are HOT!


So friendly staff all
