located on a quiet street off a busy tram-way the transylvania hostel is an oasis for travelers and students on holiday. the entire staff is friendly, welcoming and helpful with suggestions on how to make your stay more than anticipated. the daily 6 pm social dinner is especially keen since it encourages you to 'meet and greet' your fellow hostel...

I stayed at Transylvania hostel during Electric Castle festival week, end of June. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable, the bathrooms as well. There is a nice garden downstairs where sometimes they have barbecues, a good kitchen, a lot of common rooms with games and musical instruments. They all make an effort towards socialization among...

Friendly people willing to help 24/7. They also entertain the people who stay at the hostel with traditional romanian booze and dynamic nights out.Best staff there is in town, always willing to give you a hand when you'r in need or even tell you about the history of Romania and great places where you could travel.

Friendly staff. Dinner activities every night. Easy to meet other travellers. Clean rooms. Comfy beds. Close to old town, restaurants and bars. A fantastic hostel. I would stay here again. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. The only thing I was missing was a common room with a table. Everyone was sitting in the reception area. My suggestion is... More

My stay there was really too short but it was really exciting. The idea to make a daily appointment to get out altogether is really nice, then you can go directly to the good addresses and your stay is more enjoyable. Moreover a 24/24H access is really good when you are traveling all around Romania with the Romanian way of... More

We were lucky to get bunks in this cozy hostel! Super nice staff with really good local knowledge. This might not be the cheapest place but so worth of it! There's free games, music instruments, good showers and fully equiped kitchen.

We were lucky to get a parking spot right outside the hostel. It was a little difficult to spot as the hostel was under going renovations so the facade was draped in scaffolding and dust sheets. Four of us got to share one room close to the kitchen and bathroom. Doors are a little noisy due to the electronic locks.... More

Nice place with friendly staff. Second time staying there and it's still just as good, they go out of their way to show you around the city or go out for drinks and the hostel is clean and comfortable.
