UNSUNG WONDERS&HIDDEN GEMS OF BUCHAREST

In the words of one of our team members here in HostelSkills, Bucharest is one of the most amazing places she ever visited. Went there without any expectations, even a bit prejudiced, and came back the biggest promoter of the city. The atmosphere, the people, the food…  Our friend Irina from Bucur’s Shelter hostel will be an ideal host, and here are some of her tips and tricks about her city.

How did you decide to open a hostel? 

We are 3 friends who made everything possible and one day we had a brilliant idea: how cool would be to travel every day and meet a lot of amazing people without actually going anywhere?! The next day we already had an excel full of numbers and stuff and a head full of dreams 🙂

What is the biggest challenge you are facing in running/managing your hostel?

I would say the most challenging is to find the right people for your dream team and to build a strong and motivated environment around your staff because they are the first impression your guests get.

What makes your hostel unique?

The Bucur’s Angels (that’s our staff) and atmosphere 🙂 Also we are the first traditional Romanian hostel in Bucharest where our guests can enjoy an authentic Romanian experience, try some homemade welcome drinks and make new friends.

What is the one thing that your guests like the most in your hostel?

Our common room 🙂

What makes your destination/city a place everyone should visit?

Our city has a lot of unsung wonders&hidden gems! Every corner has its own amazing story. Bucharest is where Belle-Époque-style buildings from the late 1800s and early 1900s combine with our strong Latin and Balkan roots to create a unique and unmistakable flavor.

What is the best time of the year to visit you?

Spring and Autumn are amazing in Bucharest and the best time to discover our city.

What would you recommend to your guests as a must see/must do in your city?

Bucharest Delta is a unique place in Europe, only is a few kilometers from the down-town. Also, the Palace of the Parliament, the 2nd largest building in the World after Pentagon and the Village Museum, an open-air museum where you can learn about traditional Romanian village life. Also, don’t miss out on eating a pretzel, some “mici” with mustard and drink some “ţuica” 🙂
