It's the worst place I have ever stayed at. Ok, the staff were helpful but this is the only plus of the place. if we hadn't paid on arrival, we would have tried looking for a different place even in the middle of the night. We asked for the bed sheets to be changed because the ones we were provided... More

The hostel could not provide a private room but did accommodate us in an apartment five minutes away. Reception was quick and easy and we were escorted to the apartment, a short walk through the square. The place has two very spacious rooms, a bedroom and a dining/kitchen or sitting room. It was very clean and had been mopped out... More

I would describe this hostel as a no thrills accommodation where you get the very basics needed for students and budget travellers. The location is perfect and the prices are very affordable. The beds and linen were okay and clean. The kitchen was old but acceptable. The bathroom looks outdated but it also acceptable. The staff are the best thing... More

The best thing about this hostel: The location! Overlooking the Piata Mica, and therefore in the middle of the beautiful Old Town of Sibiu, the location cannot be beat. Everything from museums, restaurants to cafes or shops is within walking distance. The hostel itself, however, is below average compared to the hostels I have stayed at all over the world.... More

I like hostels like this because they have character. Nice rooms, comfy beds, decent showers. Plus the pub downstairs is really good with good staff behind the bar. Plus it's right in the old town. Check it out.

I stayed in the Old Town Hostel two years ago and liked it a lot. Therefore I booked it again for this years stay in Sibiu. However this time, instead of the four bed dorm I booked (the full four beds) we were displaced into a small appartment. It was away from the main square in a small road with... More

Stayed on the shared bedroom for a night. Great location, great view of the piata. The only downside is there is only one bathroom for 10 people and more. So we have to wait for others. The staff was friendly too and helped me with finding transport etc. worth coming back

We stayed in for two nights a few days ago. We had no reservation and happened to stumble across it while looking around for somewhere to stay. The lad on reception told us the double room(which we asked for) was 100m away. It was certainly not 100m away, definitely further but it wasn't too far. The room actually turned out... More

We arrived at the hostel on thursday and we had no reservations, but fortunately there was only one more tourist in the dorms. They told us to pick our 3 beds, so we picked the ones to the window. On friday we were out visiting Sighisoara, and when we returned at about 7 pm they told us we must move... More
