Welcome to the Podstel family!

Podstel Bucharest is more than just a bed - we are a community hostel run by travellers, just a 5-minute walk from Unirii Square (centre of Bucharest) focused on giving each of our guests a unique experience by organising fun weekly events, insightful workshops & delicious family meals.

We are owned and run by 5 best friends: Dan (UK), Sam (UK), Henry (UK), Jason (USA/Switzerland), and Ambrose (Canada/Portugal) who shared a collective dream to set up a home where travellers and locals could share their stories and learn something new from each other.

Podstel Bucharest is the result of a big travel journey that started in 2012. On that journey we visited over 400 hostels in 50+ countries, collecting ideas while building our concept and trying to understand what travellers wanted from a hostel.

After all the hard work and adventures, we've put into everything we learned into practice, and here's what you can expect from your stay at Podstel Bucharest:

STAFF

We know what it’s like to be on the road. We all love to travel and have adventured to over 50 countries on 5 continents, learning from other hostels and interviewing 100s of backpackers in order to understand exactly what you need.

Beyond a friendly social atmosphere, hot shower and good night’s sleep, we want to get to know you as a friend and give you personalised recommendations of things to see and do in Bucharest.

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

ATMOSPHERE

We believe it's important to help you feel at home while you're on the road, so we've done our best to create a fun, homely and familiar atmosphere.

Our spacious garden is filled with lush trees & flowers, hammocks, a summer bar and an Arabic tent, giving the feeling of a chilled natural oasis in the heart of Bucharest. It’s a great place to unwind, enjoy a fresh smoothie and meet fellow travellers, locals and our two friendly house cats, Chai & Dharma.

We also have a ‘secret garden’ with hanging flower baskets and comfy cushions, where you can kick back, relax or even enjoy a game of table tennis with fellow travellers or locals.

EVENTS/WORKSHOPS

We work hard to make Podstel a vibrant, creative, and social place to be.

We are equipped with a stage, 90-inch projector and PA system, and can host events for up to 100 people in our garden.

We enjoy organising fun events and inspiring workshops FREE OF CHARGE for all of our guests, such as:

-Recurring weekly events including the famous Podstel family meals, unconventional movie night, 'skip the small talk' philosophical discussions and yoga.
-Events: live music, art & cultural performances from locals.
-Workshops e.g. meditation, writing, photography, drawing.
-Presentations on themes such as travel, self-development and health.

TEAHOUSE/CAFE

If you’re looking for chilled ambient music, good vibes and an opportunity to meet locals, expats and fellow travellers, our onsite teahouse/cafe is the place to be. It's also a great place to get work done with comfy seating, plug sockets everywhere and super fast Gigabit WiFi internet.

We also offer:

-Beers and alcoholic cocktails.
-46 speciality teas from all over the world.
-Toasted sandwiches & healthy snacks.

In the Summer, we fresh fruit smoothies made with fruits and herbs grown in our garden, and homemade freshly-squeezed lemonades. In the Winter, we serve hot mulled wine.

LOCATION

Podstel Bucharest is located in a quiet and safe neighbourhood just 500 metres South of Unirii Square. We are within a short walking distance to everything you will need for your stay (supermarkets, restaurants, parks, clubs, and many popular sights). We are also only 5 minutes walk closest to the bus stop of the 24-hour airport bus.

    Clean hostel with great atmosphere. Staff is really friendly with good tips about the area. After a busy day in town you can relax in the nice garden where good drinks (and breakfast) can be ordered.

    A hostel with a warm welcoming feeling and really kind staff. There is a very nice garden and a tent filled with pillows and mattresses to hang out. Also there is nice calm music outside during the day time enhancing the relaxed feeling. The atmosphere is really relaxed and open to meet other people. Everything is nice and clean, from the bathrooms and the kitchen to the rooms themselves. I had a great time in Bucharest and I think podstel really helped with that.

    We had an amazing time at Podstel. We arrived late at night, luckily they had 24-hour reception which gave us great instructions how to get into the hostel independently. The second night, we joined the family dinner which was a great opportunity to meet fellow Podstellers. It was so sad that we couldn't stay longer, but it's definitely a reason to come back to Podstel as we enjoyed it so much. The staff was very helpful and kind, we would highly recommend staying at Podstel!

    Good hostel, but location is not perfect (far from metro and or subway) and for the the price an included breakfast would be nice. Or cheaper, because 4€+ for a hostel breakfast is rather expensive for Romanian standards. Otherwise extremely clean and very friendly staff. Perfect if you are looking for a more alternative atmosphere a bit further away from the action.
