The Midland Hostel
'Adventure is a path. Real adventure - self-determined, self-motivated, often risky - forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind - and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.' - Mark Jenkins
Our hostel sleeps 30 people across three mixed dorms (six-,10- and 14-bed rooms).
The kitchen is big and bright, it's fully equipped and the lounge is probably the biggest you have ever found in a hostel.
There are lockers, but they're only meant for valuables, so they're not big.
We have a huge collection of DVDs with new movies, a book exchange service, free all-you-can-eat breakfast (8:30 - 11:00) and free internet. If you think that there is something missing, please let us know!

DirectionsShow MapHide Map
From the train station (7-12 minutes):
By bus: 79, 86 (on the left side of the train station) or 133 (across the street from the train statation), get off at 'Piata Romana' stop. Keep walking forwards, at the first small crossing you come across, turn right, on the 'Mendeleev' street, then at the first crossing turn right again on 'Biserica Amzei' street and go to number 22 (past Tonka bar, across the guard booth, which is in front of the French Embassy).
By Metro: from the 'Gara de nord' station one stop, to 'Piata Victoriei', change to the other line and go for one stop again, to 'Piata Romana'. From there, walk to the crossing, 1) cross the street on the opposite side ( left), 2) turn left at the next small crossing, 3) turn right at the next one, pass Tonka and get to the guard booth across the street from the hostel.
By taxi: a taxi ride to here is less than 10 lei. Use the machine that will call a reputable taxi for you and not one of the many ripoff drivers that hang around the train station.
From the airport (~40 minutes):
Express bus 783, which you catch in front of the airport and get off at 'Piata Romana' stop. Exit the bus and turn left, walking in the same direction as the bus will continue going, turn right at the next small crossing and walk straight until you pass Tonka bar and then find the guard booth, we are across the street at Str. Biserica Amzei, nr. 22, next to Liceul Calinescu (a high school).
Buses run from 5:00 till 23:00; the Express 783 runs non-stop, all night. You have to get the ticket from the booth, NOT on the bus. If you prefer a taxi - taxis are 1.40 lei/km, anything else is a rip off. The price from the airport is around 40 lei maximum. Use the machine that will call a reputable taxi for you and not one of the many ripoff drivers that hang around the airport. You can find more information about taxis on our website, in case you need one.
