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

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.

Staff is veeery friendly, always hanging out with guests, organizing some activity for them every day. Hostel has great location; just 5 minutes walking to main Union Square (Piata Unirii). If you go to Cluj, you have to... More

The amazing thing about this place is the fact that the staff is very helpful and resourceful which comes handy trying to book other hostels or arrange transports esp when this place can go to Budapest easily. Set in the centre of the old town, everything is walking distance away though it's not close to the main bus terminal so... More

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
