Descrizione della struttura

Welcome to the Podstel family!

Podstel Umbrella is more than just a bed - we are a community hostel run by travellers, located right in the heart of Piata Romana - the liveliest, youngest and most hip neighbourhood in Bucharest.

We are owned and run by 5 best friends: Dan (UK), Sam (UK), Henry (UK), Jason (USA/Switzerland), and Ambrose (Canada/Portugal). After travelling the world for 4 years, we moved to Romania in 2016 to pursue our dream of setting up our first hostel - Podstel Bucharest.

After a successful couple of years with Podstel Bucharest, we’ve now taken what we've learned and opened our second location - Podstel Umbrella - which we’re very excited to be able to share with you.

Here’s what you can expect from a stay with us at Podstel Umbrella:

STAFF

We know what it’s like to be on the road. Our staff all love to travel and have collectively adventured to over 50 countries on 5 continents over the past 10 years.

Beyond a friendly social atmosphere, hot shower and good night’s sleep, we want to welcome you as a friend, get to know you and make your trip extra special by giving you personalised recommendations of things to see and do in Bucharest.

We love learning new languages, so to help make sure nothing is lost in translation, we speak fluent English, Romanian, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, German & Swiss German.

ATMOSPHERE

Podstel Umbrella is located in a gorgeous, charming, and homely building from the 1920s, which was previously occupied by Romanian royalty. It has been recently restored and modernised, but rest assured special care was taken to preserve much of its original character and artistic elements.

We have a beautiful courtyard and terrace area surrounded by a huge wall of green ivy, trees and comfy benches, which make a great place to kick back, relax and meet fellow travellers, or enjoy one of our famous Podstel family meals.

On the second floor, you’ll also find a romantic balcony with comfy seating overlooking the courtyard, which is perfect for daydreaming, reading or simply relaxing and watching the day drift away on a hot summer’s day.

With only 34 beds, Podstel Umbrella feels familiar, like a small family home where it's easy to get to know fellow travellers and our friendly staff on a personal level.

SOCIAL

Since we now run two Podstels in Bucharest (Podstel Umbrella and its sister hostel Podstel Bucharest), we thought it would be a great idea to give ALL our guests the ultimate Podstel experience by creating fun social activities and events that run between both our two locations every single day.

We host all kinds of events including movie nights, board game nights and live performances, and of course, the famous Podstel family meals.

So whether you’re staying at Podstel Umbrella or Podstel Bucharest, you’re part of the family and you’re welcome to join in on the fun wherever it’s happening.

LOCATION

We're located right in in the heart of Bucharest’s most hip neighbourhood, Piata Romana - a perfect location to make sure you experience the best that Bucharest has to offer.

We are within 5 minutes walking distance to many concept cafes, vintage shops, restaurants, urban bistros, parks, bookshops, nightclubs, garden cafes, supermarkets and Bucharest’s most famous and beautiful street, Calea Victoriei, where you’ll find all kinds of museums, famous buildings and landmarks.

With the French Embassy directly across the road and guarded 24 hours a day, we are situated in a very safe and secure neighbourhood.

Although Bucharest is a walkable city, we are only 5 minutes walk from the Airport bus (number 783), Piata Romana Metro and all major bus routes, giving convenient access to the whole city.

Here's our proximity to points of interest in Bucharest:

-Gara De Nord (main train station): 20 minutes walk, 8-minute taxi.
-Nightclubs: 5 minutes walk to Gradina Eden (one of Bucharest’s most famous nightclubs).
-Old Town: 20-minute walk to all the bars, cafes, bistros, clubs, art galleries, antique shops & museums.
-Airport Bus (no. 783): 5 minutes walk from Podstel Umbrella.

OTHER

-Free hugs and positivity.
-Fully equipped self-catering kitchen with a cooker, microwave, fridge, utensils, herbs & condiments, reverse osmosis water!
-Free board games.

That’s everything for now, thanks for reading and we look forward to welcoming you to the Podstel Family. Visualizza regole della struttura
