Map and Directions


From the Train Station (Gara de Nord Station), 7 minutes walking:
- As soon as you leave the train, head towards the end of the train tracks, and where the rail tracks end just keep going on the same directions along the central hallway. You will arrive in front of the main exit/entrance of Gara de Nord: turn right under the tall columns and go ahead along the Witing Street, leaving MOL petrol station on your left. At the end, you have to turn left on Plevnei St. and then left again on Mircea Vulcanescu (former Stefan Furtuna St). The hostel is the first house on the left. The whole walk will be 7 minutes and it makes no sense to take a cab or any public transportation.

From the Otopeni & Baneasa Airport:
1. By bus - there is the express bus 780 (2 trips ticket = 7RON), it is leaving every 15 minutes during week days and every 30 minutes during week-ends, from around 5.00 a.m. up to 11:00 p.m. You should leave the buss at the Gara de Nord Station (this is the main Train Station in Bucharest). From there you have to walk to the hostel as described above in the section "By train" (the station is in front of the main exit of Gara, at the tall columns).

2. By taxi - I would advice you not to take a taxi from the main exit of the airport, since those are more expensive. Just walk down to the right, pass the parking lot and wait just in front of it.
The regular price taxis have access here - price is on the door, 1/39lei/km - make sure they use the meter, then the total cost to our hostel should be max. 30RON from Otopeni, Henri Coanda Airport.
In case it's needed, you can order a cab from Taxi 2000 Company: 0040219494, for the same price.

Other variants:
Close to the hostel, there are the stations of various public transportation vehicles:
- busses 123, 133 - get off to Station Mircea Vulcanescu or Plevnei
- trolley-busses: 62, 71, 85, 93, 96 - get off to Station Mircea Vulcanescu or Plevnei (depending on the direction you are coming from).
- Metro Stations: Eroilor or Gara de Nord (see the map for directions to the hostel).

Have a good trip and see you soon!
