Rolling Stone Hostel is located in the older part of Brasov which is quite neat if seeking a quieter experience whilst in Brasov. The Hostel is run by two hard working sisters who are quite social and very informative. They do anything and everything to help you out if stuck and are always up for a chat. The hostel itself...

I stayed in this hostel for 2 nights and happened to enjoy both of them. The staff was VERY friendly and very helpful. She told us what sights we should see, helped us order pizza, and put up with our constant beer purchasing. The rooms were a bit cramped and the beds slightly uncomfortable, and I feel there could be... More

We spent five days at the Rolling Stone and I have to say that they really give off the impression that they have spared every expense and are only profit driven. We could not wait to leave the hostel and did so when the opportunity arose. Sometimes we made the excuse that it is Romania and not London or Paris,... More

This was an old school hostel with friendly service and basic facilities. It was clean and well located but needs a bit of maintenance in some areas as it will have to keep up with the competition as more hostels arrive in Romania. Sylvia the manager was very friendly and helpful but did push the trips and transfer services a... More

The location was nice, about a 10 minute walk into the main square of Brasov, with lovely views of the mountains. The dorm room was a little overcrowded but clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were also clean and well kept. There is a nice lounge area as well as a kitchen and dining room. The staff were very hard working... More

As another reviewer wrote, we were given the hard sell as soon as we arrived and some of the information was misleading. The first trip we didn't take as we felt Bran castle could be done on public transport and we would prefer to set our own schedule. We would have paid 60 lei per person for that and it... More

We had a pleasant stay at the hostel. We received a friendly welcome from Sylvia when we first arrived. She gave us a lot of information straight away about the trips run through the hostel. This could come across as a hard sell, but she left us with the information and did not pressure us into booking any tours through... More

This hostel is perfectly adequate when it comes to beds, bathrooms, breakfast etc. It's what you would expect for the price and that's perfectly fine. There is a TV in the common room which is nice. There are two things however which I found slightly offputting. You are immediately given the hard sell on tours as soon as you walk... More
