Hostel is close to main square. Staff is very friendly. Breakfast is perfect and you have four options. In addition to these rooms are very clean and tidy. There is a place that you can sit and spend your time in a peaceful atmosphere.

a really nice place, great location in the old town next to everything. staff is nice and friendly. a lot of stairs and make sure you book a place a long while before you are arriving, according to the fact that cluj is a students' city and during the weekend you can't find a single bad available.

Location couldn't be better, right in the centre of Cluj. The rooms are very nice, facilities great (with sauna!), super yummy breakfast and the best of it all is definitely the staff. They are ALL extremely kind and attentive, go out of their way to help you with anything, always with a smile. I strongly recommend it!

The location is great, really close to the old center of Cluj and the Cluj Arena. The biggest plus of this hostel is the staff composed of very friendly people. I recomend it for people that travel a lot and want to visit Cluj on a budget.

We were in Cluj for Electric Castle, and we found this was one of the only hostels left with enough room for all of us. So glad we booked this place. The building seems to be in a random alley, but thankfully there no traffic in the morning. We were in a 6 person room, the sheets were a little... More

I stayed at Retro Youth Hostel for a night. The staff was very nice and helpfull. The room was nicely decorated, newly renovated with a very confortable bed. The location is perfect, very close to the city centre, near a lot of pubs and coffee shops.
