I stayed here this summer and it was very nice. The owner was very friendly and helpful and it was an overall very good experience. The kitchen wasn't very well-stocked but when I pointed this out, the owner brought a large cooking pot and utensils from his own home. So good service! http://www.centrumhostel.ro/

Despite the appealing design of the hostel, its rooms and facilities, I would not recommend this accomodation. The night was extremely noisy with music coming from the bar downstairs until the early hours. I also got severe bites from bedbugs in my bunkbed, I can only hope I didnt bring any home with me.

Very funky hostel in the heart of Sibiu. Within walking distance to everything, the train station included. For some reason, the breakfast wasn't available both days I was there. The reception was closed as well, and you needed to check in at the bar. Speaking of which, the bar seems to be a local hangout for underage drinkers. That was... More

The only reason we came to Sibiu in the first place was because the excellent staff in our hostel in Cluj recommended the town. We looked into hostels and were attracted to Flying Time because of the pub attached and supposed art deco furniture. The pub was indeed great, and the furniture, though in varying states of repair, was also... More

do NOT be decieved by first impressions of the Flying Time hostel or the good ratings it might have recieved previously. While it is certainly in a good location and has a good atmosphere due to the buildings age and decor (if you don't mind cigarette smoke so thick you can barely see the person next to you in the...

We stayed for 1 night in a private room with bath for 40 EUR. VERY high priced, but it was RIGHT off the main square and the room was very nicely furnished and the bathroom was in excellent condition. The receptionist wasn't the most personable or helpful as we were given wrong train/bus information, but the location and character of... More
