The staff was very friendly and welcoming. I arrived earlier and I was welcome to hang about in the common room. The bed was clean. The people I met there were very friendly and open to talking. Had a great time!

Extremely safe, clean & comfortable. I've stayed here many times, both with family & friends and this hostel ticks all the boxes for all types of travellers. Excellent location near to 24 hour supermarket, bus stop & metro.But above all, really chilled out owners & staff!!! planning a return trip in the springtime.

Definitely the best hostel I have seen. Very well and smart design. Some one put a lot of thinking in every little detail and it shows. Very relaxing and fun place, aesthetic, and fun to be in. Very nice location. Amazing and helpful staff. The rooms, as well as the common areas are clean and neat. BIG LIKE!

This is not a party hostel so its typically very calm and extremely quiet after 10 pm. There is not a great deal of sites within walking distance, but there are a lot of...

We had a wonderful time at Umbrella. The double rooms are on the top floor which is somehow more quiet. We also noticed that the bathrooms there were cleaner than on the ground floor. The decoration was great and the staff was always very helpful and friendly.
