|The Midland Youth Hostel 2|
Str Biserica Amzei, nr 22, Bucharest, Romania
We are very proud of our hostel - it has character, the rooms are big and aired, the lounge is huge, its a quiet house where your sleep will be very good and you will recover from all the roads you have traveled and all the Bucharest clubs that have kept you awake until 8 o'clock in the morning :) The buffet breakfast we offer is substantial, the fresh coffee will jump-start your day and the road lies before you towards new sights and new adventures.

From the airport (&40 minutes):
Express bus 783, which you catch in front of the airport and get off at 'Piata Romana' stop. Keep walking forwards, turn right at the next small crossing and walk straight until you pass Tonka bar and then find the guard booth, we are across the street.
Buses run from 5:00 till 23:00; the Express 783 runs non-stop, all night. You have to get the ticket from the booth, NOT on the bus. If you prefer a taxi - taxis are 1.40 lei/km, anything else is a rip off. The price from the airport is around 40 lei. You can get reliable taxis not in front of the airport but out in the parking lot, or out closer to the main street. You can find more information about taxis on our website, in case you need one.
