When we made the Umbrella Hostel , what we aimed for is creating a friendly stay with a true feel of the old city. A place where travelers can feel at home and easily explore Bucharest.
The Umbrella Hostel is located in Piata Amzei, which is an ultracentral residential area, one of the few areas in Bucharest from where you can walk to any of the city's points of interest.
We are located right across form the French Embassy, so the street is patrolled by the Police 24/7, in case you were worried about safety.
The building itself is a 1920's professionally restored house, with a capacity of 32 beds, arranged in 6 double/triple rooms, one 4 bed room and two 8 bed rooms.
We have a beautiful outdoor terrace which can accommodate all of our guests at once, with it's own bar.
We offer free WIFI, free Breakfast, free HD TV, and a full set of services including even free walking tours and pick up from the Airport, so that you don't have to worry about anything during your stay.
