The most colorful hostel in Bucharest is here to welcome you in a chilled out, free spirited place, where people come together and enjoy the Romanian experience. We are the only hostel with a huge garden and an outdoor area filled with cushions, hammocks, art and a lot of good humor.

This is a place where art comes together, where we sing and dance, we laugh at life and enjoy its experiences. All weekends we host art performances, so if you're an artist feel free to express your art on the Doors Hostel stage or garden, of course a few nights will be on the house. Follow us on facebook to see the weekly shows or exhibitions.

Sightseeing, shopping, clubbing or chilling out , no matter what your favorites are , Doors Hostel is ideally located to make your thoughts happen.

All of your preferred targets are within easy reach as our hostel lies centrally and close to the most important sites and clubs in Bucharest.

We're in an oasis of quiet in the old part of town, where you can glance at the stylish architecture of the 19th century and some of the most beautiful churches in Europe.

In addition the many shops, restaurants and bars just five minutes away, nearby attractions include: The Houses of Parliament (the second biggest building in the world), The National Museum of Contemporary Art,The Old Princely Court and we're only two minutes away from the hippest club in town, Fabrica Club, an old factory remodeled for youngish attitudes.

Walking ten minutes north you get to the historical center, home to many art galleries, antique shops and coffeehouses. On a beautiful day, you can stroll down the narrow cobblestone streets and imagine the shopkeepers outside near their stores, encouraging people to buy their merchandise and negotiating prices with them.

A two-minute walk gets you to Carol Park which is one of the most beautiful in the city and contains a massive monument, as well as the eternal flame that marks the grave of the Unknown Soldier and offers pleasant walks down tree-lined paths, a good view of central Bucharest (from the monument) and plenty of photo opportunities. In summertime, the park's Arenele Romane is the stage for open-air concerts.

For the night-owls among you, Bucharest offers a big variety of clubs, cafes and pubs which are equally just within easy reach.We also have a charming garden , a perfect place to chill out and enjoy the international atmosphere of people coming together from all around the world.

Our international young and friendly staff will help you have the best time in Bucharest guiding you through the Romanian culture, giving you the best info, providing Bucharest Tours, and entertaining you throughout your stay and lets not forget offering you palinca shots! On the house !

We speak English, Spanish, Dutch, German, Serbian and French and Romanian :D and we're looking forward to your stay!

And more we are open around the clock.

Prices are per person per night.

Walk straight untill you get to Calea Serban Voda Street and keep walking until you find Principatele Unite Street on your right. Going on Principatele Unite, our street is the third on your left, Olimpului Street. You will find us at no 13, a black and yellow gate. Come in and enjoy the fun atmosphere!

From the Trainstation (Gara de Nord) :

Go to 'Gara de Nord 1' subway station and get on the Yellow Line going to Pantelimon. At the 7th stop get off the train at Unirii Square (Piazza Unirii) and take a right and get out of the subway station.

Both Gara de Nord and the Airport are the main target for tourist scams and con taxis. Please be careful and do not take the first taxi that invites you. A normal fare from Gara de Nord is 15 lei maximum ( about 3.5 euro ) and from the Henri Coanda Airport (OTP) is 45 lei maximum ( 10 euro ).
The Airport has 2 offices for calling a cab, they're right next to the checkout area, ask for a cheap taxi, it will be there right away. There's also the Airport bus, no 783, which runs also at night, leaves Departures every 40 minutes during the night and every 15 minutes during the day.
The train station has some honest taxi drivers too, but you'd have to look around a bit. Most of the honest taxis have the price written on the door, which is maximum 1.4 lei/km. When you find these kind of cabs, ask or tell them you'll pay maximum 15 lei to get you to Olimpului Street. The best way to get here during the day is using the metro, but if you arrive during the night there's bus no N117 that leaves you at Piata Unirii, passing Gara de Nord every 40 minutes. The bus stop is on Grivita Street.
