Property Description

We are 2 friends from Romania who started working as receptionists here and now we have leveled up to become its proud owners. We decided to join our forces and keep the tradition that The Midland Hostel has been passing on along the years - the passion for true travel lovers - open minded people who enjoy sharing their experiences, making friends, and having fun together.
We ourselves are also passionate travelers and we strongly believe that we can give you great advice and we're pretty sure that we know what you're seeking for when traveling. We also hope that the hostel we have created is not just a cheap bed but also a great place to be! That's why we have selected a mix of different places worth visiting - not only museums or tours but also cool bars and clubs, restaurants with good value, and secret sights only known to locals. We will make sure your time in Bucharest is filled with plenty of exciting options perfect for your individual taste.

To be fair, The Midland is not exactly a design/boutique hostel. While we do have some interesting creations (a gigantic blackboard with info & events), we don't claim to provide 5* luxury at 1* prices. Instead, we're more interested in building a true backpacking experience that will make your stay memorable. And it looks like we're doing pretty well - check out our atmosphere/staff ratings to see how we stack up.

Our capacity is only 24 beds, which means that you'll be treated like an individual, not just a drop in the ocean. Upon arrival, you'll get a free map explaining what, where, and how, as well as all the important info about the city. The hostel itself is set up to deliver everything a traveler needs - a big common area for hanging out and making friends, a big kitchen to prepare your favorite meals or cocktails, and big beds (90cm wide!) to have a comfortable sleep. We provide free wi-fi, guest computer, board games, free towels, free linens, free tea and coffee. And you'll never need to worry about security – not only do we have 24h reception, electronic lock on the door, and personal lockers, but we're also located directly across the street from the French embassy, meaning that there are plenty of guards keeping an eye on our entrance.

We are located in the heart of Bucharest with walking distance to all main sights and easy access to public transportation. Our neighborhood is close to some of the coolest places in town and even has a 24h supermarket for those late-night munchies. The closest metro and bus stops are at PIATA ROMANA (a major transport hub about 2 minutes away, more info on our DIRECTIONS page).

We are non-smoking inside, but outdoor smoking areas are provided.
All 3 dorm rooms connected between with a lounge room share a bathroom with 2 showers, 2 toilets, 2 sinks and in order to acces it, you have to go accross the lounge room to get into it.
Pets and families are not allowed.
Bad drunken behavior is not welcome. Good slightly-drunken behavior is another story. :)
The hostel and it's guests interact, drink, & eat together, so if you expect a very quiet place, please contact us so we can redirect you to another place.
Please be aware that guests under the age of 18 are not permitted except in group cases where the entire hostel is rented.
For groups of more than 8 guests, please contact us for approval prior to booking.

You are in good hands with our outstanding Romanian and international multilingual staff - Marius, Dragos, Anca, Ibrahim, Eliza and Adriana will make sure your time in Bucharest is well spent and that moving on to the next place by plane, train, or bus is as easy as possible.

See you soon! View House Rules

    Great experience. The staffs were really kind and personally I think there was everything that I needed. The environment is pretty great. You get to meet people from all corners of the world and share an experience together in Bucarest. If you pass there within a month or two, Andrew is the guy to show you what the definition of fun is.

    I stayed at Midland in 2018 & enjoyed the friendly atmosphere so much that I stay whenever in Bucharest. Beside French Embassy. Easy* access from Airport (Bus 783 or 784) or 20 min by foot from Train; easy 20-min by foot to old town, cafes en route. Grocery stores nearby. "Rustic" appearance w/ a lot of character, Midland is (was) a hub of activity (pre-Covid) for those who love* to travel: communal spirit; great wifi; cozy kitchen (free coffee/tea); bunk beds & lockers; staff r wonderful!

    Very well located hostel and lockers availible. Can be a little noisy as rooms back directly onto common room. We didnt find the staff particually helpful! But if you are looking for a social hostel as a solo backpacker would be ideal as always people around. Kitchen facilities also really good!

    Both shower heads were broken so you had to hold the shower head while you showered. Average atmosphere.
