ittle Bucharest Old Town Hostel is a special place located in the very heart of Bucharest’s old town,
an area full of energy, certainly the liveliest part of the city. Having the best location possible, this is
the only hostel located in the pedestrian old town city centre.
Little Bucharest has been designed especially for backpackers and young travellers, active, vibrant people who want to be part of the action-packed downtown area.
The building in which it’s located has a long history; a neoclassical style edifice, it’s been built in 1902 and for most of its time standing it hosted banks. Right across the street you in fact will find the National Bank of Romania, so you can be sure security is not an issue.
You will find us at the second floor of this emblematic building situated at the crossroads of the main pedestrian streets of the old town, Lipscani and Smardan. We are within walking distance from the two most important metro stops, which connect you to all areas of the city. Just by going down the stairs you’ll stumble upon hundreds of bars, pubs, restaurants, clubs, shops, art galleries, theatres. Also, within walking distance from us you can find the National History museum, the Palace of Parliament, the most chic park in Bucharest – Cișmigiu and many more of Bucharest’s important landmarks.

We trust that the modern classy feel, welcoming atmosphere and excellent location of Little Bucharest
Hostel will provide you with a home-like, cozy base for your stay in the city.
