Really a rare place. So much fun to stay here. A really well organised and run hostel, full of friendly folk and good vibes. Dorms are spacious, beds and bathrooms are great, kitchen's well stocked, there's an excellent common room where it's super easy to meet people and there's a nice outside space shaded in greenery for barbecue's in the...

The transylvania hostel is very central in the heart of Cluj. The staff is really great and always ready to help. The friendly atmosphere is created not only by them but also by the other guests, who are mostly young people. I only stayed one night and therefore havent seen much of the kitchen, but the bathroom is modern and... More

the first thing that strikes you is how spacious are all the rooms, especially the 8-bed dorms. the lobby is very cosy and has direct access to a game room. plenty of bathrooms, one large kitchen with everything you would need, four separate entrances for all facilities, so you can choose a more quiet section, if you please. usually a...

I've been returning here several times with and without students and apparently my colleagues also do thus. A great location in the vibrant city. Owner Iuliana and the staff are very friendly an helpful. What I love is that the staff join in going to great restaurants and bars in city centre. I'll be back!

This hostel's location can not be beaten! The hostel is located right in the center, but somehow, in the quiet part of the street so they really hit the jackpot (or was it US that one it ?!?) The hostel is in a gorgeous building that was recently renovated though somehow still has A LOT of atmosphere. So you got... More

Great hostel in a great location. The staff was amazingly friendly and made you feel like you were between friends. It has a great location in the old center of Cluj, close to a lot of bars and restaurants which are filled with nice people.

This hostel is located right in the middle of the city center, close to a bunch of bars, short bus ride from the airport and a hop from the bus station. It is perfect for walking out to the cathedral, citadel hill, museums and the (amazing) central park. And yet, somehow, the advantage of location is dwarfed by the atmosphere,... More

Great location, squeaky cleanliness, and most of all: the staff. The staff makes it all worthwhile, I felt as though I was among friends. We even had a treasure hunt before going for a pub crawl. The building has a sexy vintage allure about it as well. Slept like a baby.

We had booked 2 nights but stayed for 3. Every night there was a tasting of some traditional romanian liquer and than going out for dinner all together, afterwards they go to a bar and than to some night club. It is really Great if you want to meet crazy People from all over the World and Party together.
