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.

Very rude staff, dog barking like crazy and encouraged by someone in the house.Really, people?You thought we're going to invade you?You won't get too many customers with this attitude.Seemed to be a place for transit workers and dodgy locals, not favored by tourists. Would have loved to set up HQ there for a few days and enjoy that old part... More

I think you wanted to write it for another hostel or a hostel with a similar name but in another city. Please... More

Stayed recently at the Gabriel Hostel and must stay was a very enjoyable experience. Exquisite service from Gabriel and his wife, great day out at the Bran Castle, perfect for visiting the rest of the city. To recommend absolutely.

Gabi took the three of us on a fantastic tour of the Bran Castle and Rasnov. It was so much easier than taking a local bus and he was full of stories to make the time pass quickly. The hostel is new but has a homey feel. It is convenient to the centre and the railway station. We arrived with... More

Gabriel hostel is the best! We are already planning to go back in the summer. The hostel is newly renovated. The bathroom is unisex and is the cleanest bathroom you will ever find in a hostel. Our 2-person room was very roomy and had a beautiful view of the mountainside. The bed was very comfortable too! Gabriel and Flavia were... More

We didn't stay at the hostel, but Gabriel was our tour guide for our short stay in Romania. Gabriel was helpful from the start. He met us at the train station. He took us to 4 sites the first day, and a few the next day. He was informative, and his tour prices are reasonable, compared to other tour companies... More
