It was a great hostel with great location, very easy to find. Great atmosphere for young travelers to meet up and exchange travel information.


A lovely hostel with fabulous friendly staff. The room was great ! Very clean with an amazing shower.


A wonderful place to be! Good location, accessible from metro. A very good vibe, nice building and interior and very kind staff who offer thoughtful recommendations! You can also tell they put care into the hostel, with little touches like multiple power outlets near the beds and small baskets attached to the upper bunks. Overall, a great place!


helpful staff who will let you know everything you want in clean instruction.


Very nice hostel, good friendly staff, big lockers in rooms, very clean, had a good stay.


The hostel is a very nice and safe location. Hostel is new and I liked the interior design very much. Bathroom could be better but shower upstairs is OK. The staff is helpful and they are available 24h. Good value for money. If I could change anything there, I would create a female dorm not to have just mixed dorm in offer.


Excellent staff and awesome place


Everything was working. Comfortable beds, cousy courtyard and usefull advises from staff, that was the top. The biggest draw-back: The hostel is quite outside the old-town center, so be prepared for a 30min walk, day and night! Aside. Guests were not too communicative, everyone only interested in his phone:-(


One of the best hostels we ever stayed at. Nice, helpful staff and good, clean rooms. On the downside, breakfast ist not included but many supermarkets are around the corner and kitchen is available.


Amazing hostel, very clean and centrally located. The staff is awesome, each and every one so friendly and helpful! I had a great time here.


There's not much you can fault about this hostel. Nice, big, clean rooms and great facilities. Staff were friendly and keen to share their knowledge. This is definately one of the best ones that I stayed in in my travels across Europe..


Very clean and nice with friendly staff.


Three of us stayed at hostel umbrella and absolutely loved it, to the point of being sad to leave. One of the best hostels I experienced: very friendly without being over the top, homely, central, clean and with very comfy beds. Highly recommend !


Really nice hostel, great air con and great wifi. Only downside is no hot water for most of the time we were there although it was so hot it didn't matter, and I did have one hot shower!

Hello, thank you for the nice review. For our future guests: this was a problem caused by the gas company, only happens twice a year and each time is lasts one or two hours max. We have a gas based water system that can provide non-stop hot water, for all showers running at the same time. Don't imagine if stay with us, that you will have to take any cold showers...unless you want to :) See you guys soon.


Incredible atmosphere, very homely asd relaxed, perfect patio for usmme rnights out - we felt at home in this hostel and would recommend it anytime!

Overall a lovely hostel but location is quite poor with noting much around. Small hostel and not a social vibe however if you want a relaxed chilled out vibe it's a good hostel.

Hello Maeve, thanks for submitting a review, as far as I remember you guys preferred to hang around in the hostel most of the time although we recommended a lot of places around. We are in the middle of Bucharest's local area so We are actually surrounded by Bars Terraces Clubs Cafe's Restaurants. Before We read your review We though it was impossible for someone to get bored in our neighborhood :) We are not a party hostel, but people have a lot of fun in our place and they connect easily.


So comfortable and full of great people. Staff is really nice and always trying to help you. I love its atmosphere and the patio.


This hostel is everything you expect in a hostel: comfortable, the cleanest, and nice atmosphere and people, great and helpful staff...and everything for a good price. Located in a neighbourhood with some embassies, it´s really safe to walk at nigh. It´s placed in an old house (renovated), and it mantains the old ceramic stoves. I loved the common areas, a great interior patio, with hand-painted tables and walls covered in ivy. The room was really comfortable. Staff was the nicest people.


Loved it! Super clean, quiet location, and great staff!


Great kitchen, shower and bathroom. Comfortable beds. Very welcoming and friendly staff who helped book taxis/ maps/tours no problem
