We very much enjoyed our stay at the Umbrella Hostel. The room was nice, staff very friendly and helpful and the location of the hostel excellent!


This hostel was exactly as advertised. My only minor complaint was that all the rooms have windows that open up into the courtyard which is the most-used common area. That said, it has great facilities with a friendly and knowledgeable staff. Highly recommended!


Great hostel. Particularly the owner Valentin, great guys, always there to help!

Lovely hostel, horrible bathrooms! No, seriously, I was really expecting more from the bathrooms. Far from the main touristic sites, but that's ok... you can pretty much walk anywhere from there. Very good kitchen.


Friendly staff, nice hostel within walking distance to attractions


One of the best hostels I have been too, I was sad to not have stayed longer! Impeccably clean, friendly staff and super helpful with maps and tips. Free breakfast was basic but, it's free. Location is slightly out from the old town but I liked it as it was in a quieter more local part of town and close to the other sites to see in the north part of the city. Overall couldn't recommend more! Also do the free walking tour, is a must.


Great hostel with an even better staff. Eddie at the front desk actually called the train station to get the times for my 3-train journey to Belgrade. Super helpful. Really great hostel. Good wifi good location nice atmosphere. Quite happy with it!


Really nice staff! The guys are really helpful and friendly. Also, the beds are comfy, the rooms are good, and the bathroom is amazing (really good shower!). It was one of the best hostels I have ever stayed, for sure.


This was a great hostel to stay in! I wish I could have stayed longer in Bucharest. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating. I felt safe and secure here and would highly recommend this hostel to anyone. We stayed in the delux private ensuite, were private and felt good.
