It was an O.K. stay. The staff were a little unwelcoming and the place had an unfriendly atmosphere. Not worth it to me.

Sorry you felt unwelcome at our Hostel. You guys did arrive one day earlier unannounced, and refused to understand that we could not accommodate you, and left with a late check out at 16:00 without announcing us that you would not stay the extra night you had booked. NOT COOL ! For other potential guests : We have an award for best atmosphere in a hostel from Hostelbookers and we guarantee you will discover the opposite from what these guys have described. See you soon :)

The staff is friendly and helpful - they even give you their beds of you'd like to stay another night or two and the hostel is fully booked. I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel and would definetly come back again!

Umbrella is a nice spot in Bucharest. North of city center but not a far walk. Very quiet place. It's as if u are not even in the city. Shower is one of the best I've been around. Toilets are tight though, so if u are talk have fun wiping your ass!

Staff was very friendly & helpful. Location isn't ideal for sites, but it is a good value. The breakfast is good and outside courtyard is a nice place to relax.

Very nice place to stay in Bucarest, it is very big and the manager is very cool. This is not so close to the old town but it is worth staying there. Would recommend for sure.

The Umbrella hostel is truly magnificent. It is definitely one of the best hostels I have stayed in and would highly recommend it to all travellers. The Umbrella is set in a beautiful environment, tucked away in an older style residential building with a gorgeous giant garden wall and spacious outdoor area, the ambience is peaceful and relaxing. You really feel at home as soon as you soon as you step through the doors. Vali the owner has really done an exceptional job providing a sanctuary for travellers to Bucharest. Come and experience this unique gem you will not be disappointed :)

We arrived quite late at night due to our flight schedule and Eddie was at reception waiting to welcome us. Everything vas very clean, comfortable beds, nice brakfast choice and lovely staff, plus there is a terrace where u can enjoy your free time and meet people! Dont hesitate to come here.
