We never met a Gabriel like all the other people because he was apparently a little busy that week. But the hostel was very nice. It had the cleanest bathroom of a hostel I have been to yet. The room was nice and was in an easy location to visit old town. The lady running it has a lot of... More

We also didn't stop at Gabriel's hostel, but met him at the station in Brasov by accident. He mentioned the trains to Peles usually run late, leaving us little time to see the castle and offered to take us. We jumped in his car and he got us a good discount at the castle and then drove us back. There... More

We did not stay at the hostel, however, the B&B owner in Bucharest suggested Gabriel as a tour guide and driver. We took the overnight train from Budapest and Gabriel met us as we got off the train (even though the train was considerably late. He then took us on a lovely tour of Bran Castle, Rasnov castle, and pelee... More

As soon as I got off the train, I ran into Gabriel. The way to the hostel is easy: a bus drops you off right in front of it. I stayed in the dorm, which was much more spacious and homey than the other hostels I'd stayed in, and the internet and service desk were reliable. I particularly liked the... More

I usually only slept here (I was out and about every day), but it was nice to be able to walk into the city center of Brasov whenever I wanted (to go shopping, take photos or get a bite to eat). You can also get tours or jump on a bus if that's your thing. The hostel itself was tidy,... More

Hostel is relatively close to the city center, about 10 min walking. There is some strange rules, for example, you must take of your shoes at the entrance, than can not open the windows, gate is always locked... Blanket's also smell very strange. The owner, Gabriel is fine, he could drive you everywhere, and tell you something about history of... More

I didn't actually stay in the hostel, but Gabriel - the owner, drove me and my friends to Sigishoara and Viscri, and it was a day I will never forget. The trip was filled with great anecdotes, history lessons and a lot of laughs. If I ever come back to Brasov, I will defenitly stay at Gabriel Hostel!

I had stayed at Gabriel Hostel for few days and I had a great experience! The hostel is easy accessible, the bus station being located in front of the hostel. The most historical attractions and city square are in a walking distance from the hostel. I completely disagree with previous comments and I can say that the hostel is very... More
