I don't usually write reviews but felt like I had to for this place because it really felt like a home more so than a hostel. One of the cosiest places I've ever been to. The kitchen was very well equipped and common area was very welcoming. Came here solo and made friends quickly. Highly recommend to anyone.

We stayed here for a night. We walked here from the train station. The hostel staff were friendly and inviting. It was clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again. There is a welcoming common area with cooking facilities and a computer. There was also a washing machine and dryer.

I'm from Canada and was backpacking alone through Eastern Europe and Umbrella Hostel was by far my favourite hostel. The staff were so friendly and inviting. They helped me with navigating my way around the city and helping me book tours. They even went above and beyond to help me get my phone back after I left it in the...

Quiet location, nice host, clean and warm :) Great guests, we had a long conversation in the kitchen, made friends from five continents. There is a supermarket close by, and some great falafel place if you're into that!

I really enjoyed my stay at Umbrella Hostel, only downside is the 15-20 min walk towards the old town, otherwise it is in a decent neighborhood. I would highly recommend this place, the people who work there are fantastic as well.
