Dan, Sam and Jason are awesome hosts and made me feel at home instantly! They have only recently taken over ownership and it was fascinating to listen to their vision and ideas for the future of...

Hello Stu, Thanks for the really nice comments. It was pleasure to have you come and stay with us - you were a very considerate and fun guest to have around. Shame about your poker skills though ;), maybe next time you'll be a bit better. We'll see you in the summer! Take care and happy travels, The Podstel Family

Great staff, great location and a great relaxed vibe. I hope to be back here in the future - highly recommended. The Podstel staff were great with information on the city, recommending places to visit and how to get there. The hotel is situated perfectly to explore both the sights and the necessary amenities.

Podstel Doors Hostel is by far in the best location in Bucharest. The closest hostel to the airport bus as well as just ten minutes to the Parliament and the old town by foot. Likewise very close to the nature parks if you want a break from the city, right beside the Eternal Flame Monument park. A fully stocked kitchen...

Thank you for the honest feedback! We took over the hostel on December 1st from the previous owner. Now that we've figured out how to run the hostel efficiently, we have time to take care of the little things that make the hostel experience absolutely perfect. We've just installed new lights, and we will definitely be getting a microwave soon....
