Dan and Sam were extremely welcoming and went out of their way to make my stay a pleasant one. The Inclusive nature that Podstel doors have going on will definitely make me stay there again when I'm back in the vicinity.

The owners (Dan, Sam and Jase) have an amazing vision and put their heart and soul into the place, so Podstel will get...

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...
