Wow! What a great experience! The staff is awesome! everyday someone from the hostel takes the guests to do something in the city. And what a great city to be! By far the best city and hostel I've been in Romania!

It's not a surprise most people staying at Transylvania hostel end up extending (and sometimes stay about a month). The friendly staff will take you out to a few restaurants and bars every night. The patio is very nice in the summer, the kitchen fully equipped and the beds very comfortable. A great hostel if you want to feel like... More

One of the best places I've ever stayed! The staff is very cool, taking us out to have dinner and for a pub (it's very nice for people traveling alone), the room was cozy and the kitchen and the bathroons were clean. The only bad thing was that one two of three showers were without hot water, so everyone had... More

Really great hostel in the middle of cluj napoca. All the staff were so nice and could have spent the whole time just hanging out at the hostel with them! Massive rooms, big, well equipped kitchen, clean bath rooms and a cozy lounge to chill in. Also they organise some kind of outing/dinner/drinks every night so good for solo travellers.

We spent three nights at this hostel during our stay in Cluj. It is fairly easy to get to from the train station by a 15 minute bus ride and is located in an area with good shopping and restaurant options. The main square is just a couple blocks away and during our stay there was a wonderful Christmas market... More

This is exactly what a hostel is all about: extremely friendly staff, perfect location, super nice amenities (spacious rooms and good hangout places) and every day organized activities. What makes the biggest difference is the staff, they make a huge difference because they are so lovely and caring, all of them! Would definitely stay there again if I return to... More

I liked a lot of thing about the hostel. Starting with the joyful an helpful staff, the cool little map they have and the music they play. Then you have the big common room with spacious couches, the large kitchen with most things you'll ever need, the clean bathrooms with nice showers and so on. And then you have the... More

it gave the feeling of a small shared flat, everyone knows each other and the staff trying to do his best to make interaction between all the guest, for me it was a bit to much. I was looking to hear about the alternative life, cheep places, beautiful places to go but I got thee regular places not so exiting,... More

Gosh little hostel with a great garden area and great common areas. Staff are a little quirky but fun people and really helpful. Definitely worth looking at If coming to Cluj as it's also really central.
