I spent two days in Transylvania hostel and they were fantastic!!! The rooms were spacious and the beds really comfortable. The bathroom was very clean, with a big shower!! But the best thing of this place is the staff, young and funny!!! I recommend it to everyone. In this place you can feel like home!! ❤️

Perfect, breakfast is not the best, but the dorms are spacious and not cramped. The staff are polite and very helpful. The lounges (there are 2) are really nice and the kitchen is clean and well <a class="ktg6us78hf8vdu7" href="javascript:void(0)">stocked</a>. I can't think of a criticism, except that the milk at the breakfast table wasn't real milk, but I trust that... More

We stayed in a twin room which was very roomy. Most staff were incredibly helpful! I only really say it's not the best because we've stayed in amazing hostels all over the world. But this place was affordable, friendly and they could provide you with information about anything you needed. The kitchen was ok, and you could probably cook in... More

I was on the train from Brasov to Sighisora but my travel radar was not working for I didn't get off the train after it pulled up. I wasn't reading the time on my ticket or looking out the window for my stop. Anyhoo, since I had no plans I stayed on the train (without paying) and got off 3-4... More

Situated in the Old Town of Cluj. Very nice, comfortable and clean! You can sleep well at night. There's a well-equipped playroom and kitchen (free cornflakes;). You can also spend a little time on a terrace. Enjoy your stay!

We stayed at the hostel for three nights - the staff is really friendly and the whole place feels like home much more than just a hostel, large kitchen & common areas make it easier to meet other travelers. Kitchen is perfect (clean, lots of items + basic spices, shelf for common food (and usually sth there). The owner is... More

I had to overnight in Cluj to catch an early morning flight. I found this place online and since it had decent reviews, I decided to give it a shot. In short, it is a great place. It is right in the centre of Cluj, which is a huge plus, and everything is nearby. As for the hostel itself, the... More
