Hello and welcome to Podstel Doors Hostel – the most colourful, chilled and vibrant hostel in Bucharest!

We're located right in the heart of the city and in walking distance to all the famous sights, clubs, bars, shops, and two of Bucharest’s most beautiful parks. We’re also the closest hostel to the airport bus.

We're owned and run by travellers Dan & Sam - two childhood friends from Britain who spent 4 years hitchhiking and adventuring the world with a dream to set up hostel built on principles of community, sharing and learning.

After gathering ideas and inspiration from over 400 hostels and 100s of backpackers on 4 continents, we're excited to share with you what we’ve created here at Podstel.

Here’s why Podstel is your perfect place for a fun, comfy and memorable stay in Bucharest:

OUR STAFF

We have visited over 50+ countries so when it comes to hostels and travel we understand exactly what you need. We live on site and we want to help you feel at home, get to know you as a friend and listen to your travel stories. We also speak 8 languages (English, Romanian, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, German & Swiss German) and can give you personalised recommendations for things to see and do in Bucharest.

SOCIAL/COMMUNITY

Podstel is a social hostel with a cosy and vibrant atmosphere. We work hard to create a friendly and welcoming feeling by hosting fun events, activities, group dinners, performances and workshops, which make it super easy for you to meet fellow travellers and Bucharest locals.

TEA HOUSE

With over 46 varieties of tea from around the world (we might have a tea from your country), our cosy, zen-inspired tea house is the perfect place to chill, enjoy events and exchange stories with fellow travellers & locals.

GARDEN

Outside our front door is our beautiful 450m2 garden - a green oasis and ideal place to chill in the heart of Bucharest. With lush quince trees and hammocks, our garden is the perfect place for hosting fun events, activities & workshops or just relaxing and enjoying the sun. We’re equipped with a summer bar, stage, dozens of tables & chairs, and a beautiful Arabic Tent which can sit up to 40 people.

Please note: we’re always looking for talented musicians, artists and teachers to hold events and workshops, so if you have something to share, get in touch and let's make a plan to bring it to life!
