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

Have a wonderful experience during our three days stay. The host is really kind and helpful, open arm to every guest. It locates in a quiet zone of the town which we can see fog around the hill every morning. The best about the hostel is they really provide a clean environment. They also have well organized trip, not just... More

We didn't stay at the hostel but we did go on a three day tour with Gabriel. We had a superb time and l would recommend Gabriel as a guide to anyone visiting Brasov and the surrounding area. He couldn't be more helpful and accommodating! This was our 2nd time with Gabriel and we are planning a third trip and... More

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
