Bucharest has many alternatives for accommodation but not all of the low budget ones are recommended to spend a night or two. I made a list with the really good ones so you feel safe, pampered and special even if you pay less . Most Hostels or Guest Houses in Bucharest have free WIFI.
Umbrella Hostel, this is my favorite place to recommend. It is located in Piata Amzei, n the very heart of the city, right across the French Embassy. The building itself is a 1920’s professionally restored house, with a capacity of 32 beds, arranged in 6 double/triple rooms, one 4 bed room and two 8 bed rooms and a beautiful outdoor terrace. The furniture is well choose, the staff is friendly, the place is extremely clean and safe.
