We had a great time at this place staying two nights. The twin / double room (it has two double beds) is spacious and nice and the showers are amazing. There is everything you need for a comfortable stay. The hostel has a good vibe and is close to everything you need in Cluj (bars, restaurants and some sightseeing). The... More

Staying in the Transylvania hostel was the best way to start my trip in Romania. The staff is awesome, events are organised regularly, and the rooms are wide and clean. Everything also help to meet other travelers, which is a big plus when you are travelling in solo.

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

Transylvania Hostel really made my time in Cluj a great experience! I was only there for two days but i will definitely be going back. The hostel is right in the city centre and it has a great common room, outdoor area and clean /spacious rooms. It was a great hostel to meet other travellers and the staff were amazing!... More
