This is a simple hostel round a little courtyard in central Sibiu, but close to bus and rail stations. It is owned and run by a friendly and helpful young local man who has an Irish wife - so his English is fluent. Off-season the place is great but the shared facilities would be insufficient if there were more than,sday,10... More

The hostel is very well located, attractive, comfortable and the owners couldn't be more hands on, friendly and helpful. Slept like babies! Great book swop and fresh watermelon juice. The fresh homemade granola breakfast is a treat and the coffee is 2nd to none. We had a very enjoyable stay and left as friends.

I have traveled Europe for many backpacking trips and this place is probably one of the best I stayed at! The family running it was really friendly and helpful! The breakfast was excellent, one evening the cooked soup, really tasty and good! The dorms and common areas was good, the best was the outdoor yard! They both helped out with... More

OK, there are some downsides to this hostel. A tiny kitchen, very hot at night (on hot summer days at least) and kreaking floors. But the charm of this place, is unmatched. The owner is very friendly and helpfull and the hostel creates a very social relaxed atmosphere. A definite recommendation if you are backpacking to Sibiu.

We spent some days in that hostel, so its not just a one-moment sight. The hostel is in a quiet street. They have a nice café-area, were you can read books, dring coffee (5LEI) and have your includes breakfast (cereals with yogurt and 1 coffee). The interior is very elegant. First impression is positive. But after some days you see... More

Stayed here in the dorms for two nights. The staff (Tom and Robert) were very friendly (the owners left the country for their vacation when I reached there) and providing all of the information on what's going on in the city. The kitchen, dining area and batroom are very away, so the night sleep was good and comfortable. Closer to... More

I slept here two nights with a friend and I have no regrets. The hostel is just behind the city centre and it's easy to find your way to. The staff were friendly and informed us several times about the hotspots in and around the city; which also were great to see. On the terrace in the garden(!) all guests... More

A great thing about this place is the location. Five minute walk from the train station and about five minute walk to the main square. Wonderful. Owned and ran by a friendly Irish woman and her Romanian husband so English is spoken. It also has a lot of nice touches around the place. A homely feel. You can tell that... More

This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The Irish/Romanian hospitality is amazing. The owners are able to recommend sights to see, restaurants etc. The hostel is about a 5-10 minute walk from the train station, and another 5 minute walk leads you to the main square. Perfect location! Its spotless clean, and the 6 bed dorm... More

If you've been in Sibiu before you surely know it's different than all Romanian cities. It has a unique smell, unique sights, amazing streets, well, it wasn't named European Capital for nothing... Felinarul hostel fits perfectly in Sibiu's landscapes and style. It is warm and welcoming, it's different that any other hostel I've been in, with big rooms, lots of... More
