I stayed here just after the Christmas rush and it was perfect. Our hosts provided awesome and clean services. They helped us map out a walking tour of the old city. They also provided an awesome tour of the local castles and fortresses. The room was very clean and comfortable. Gabriel is multilingual with English, French, Spanish, Italian and so... More

Place has got good location, staff is quite helpfull. But I trully advise against renting the cottage - place is awful, there is no wifi and bathroom is in another building, where romanian familly lives. It's better to get place in dorm in the normall hostel than in this cottage.

Gabriel is a very pleasant and warm person and i strongly recommend anyone coming to Brasov to link up with him. It was a big problem for a solo traveller like me to cover many places at a low cost but Gabriel kept communication and always updates me if there are any groups doing tours that I can join in....

Well I turned up without booking a room, Gabriel and Flavia where so welcoming and I was settled in within a few minutes. The hostel was spotless I have travelled to many country's but I have to say this is the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in. Straight away Gabriel was telling me all the things that were in...

We were very fortunate to run into Gabriel at the train station. We were going to go to Bran and Peleş castles by ourselves but ended up with Gabriel for the day. A wonderful tour guide! He drove us from Braşov to Sinaia for Peleş castle, via a quaint monastery, then through the mountains to Bran. We joined tours at... More

Gabi is a wealth of info and does the funniest tour of Brasov, Bran and the area ever. The house is clean and new with all the things you need for a good sleep.It is easy to get to from the station. We called before for a reservation but it is not always necessary. Gabi and Flavia are a great... More

We (2 friends) stayed at this hostel for 6 nights. We chose the hostel because of the great reviews on tripadvisor and hostelbookers. But little did we know that everything that was said in those reviews was the complete opposite in real life. 1. The only thing that was true/positive, was that the hostel is clean. But don't be fooled... More

We stayed here last summer for 6 nights. The hostel is very clean, and that was nice. But the rules were very strict and unpleasant. (For example: we're not allowed to touch the floor) We had to pay for the towels and laundry service.The breakfast was the cheapest bread and it was moldy.

I strongly recommend this Hostal. We had a very good time, good value for money, comfortable rooms, facilities properly cleaned. We really enjoyed the trips organised by Gabriel, he drives you everywhere for a low price and we had fun.
