Bad things first - I reserved a certain room, with a certain arrangement of beds, didn't get it, although I double checked my reservations, romance gone. The bright side: it is cheap, it's in the middle of friggin' Sighisoara, the blankets are warm, the beds are comfortable, and the water (although it took around 10minutes to get to this point)...

The hostel looks very nice from the outside and is situated right in the very center of beautiful Sighisoara, but there are are not much other positive things to say about this hostel... The infrastructure is rather poor and the staff was not especially friendly and definitely not helpful at all. They said I could use the printer but there... More

I've stayed in better hostels but that's not to say that this one was bad. The only downsides were that it's not a sociable hostel and the staff could have been more friendly. The dorm was great. I enjoyed the food served in the restaurant, it's really cheap! Brilliant location.

Visited Sighisoara in July 2015 and tried to find somewhere nice to eat (slightly away from the hussle and bustle of the main square). Burg restaurant looked promising with lovely medieval looking wooden tables outside. We sat and ordered our meals and wine. First of all, after ordering the chef rudely refused to accommodate a slight change in one of... More

The beds are comfortable and clean. The rooms are spacious and the bathroom is in an acceptable condition. The staff, which appears to be one single woman, are helpful. She seems overworked though because she has to manage both the restaurant and the hostel. Management needs to look into this.

Despite of so many bad reviews, I do think that this place deserve a little bit of more... ...and of course it is based on my stay there for two nights. Stayed in the private room with ensuite, ready when we arrived and clean. People speak four languages, romanian, hungarian, english and german and I found them really helpful when... More

The new room didn't smell bad but was dirty. There were stains of urine on the toilet seat and under the bed there were empty bottles ,as if... More

I stayed only one night while visiting a friend for his birthday. I searched for the best price and found this in the middle of the Burg (Citadel). It was nice and a new experience waking up right there, like in medieval times (note that people still live there, being one of the only inhabited fortresses in Europe). The room... More

There's a thing with hostels where you can say "welllll i didn't pay much, so i can't expect much!" What you should always be able to expect no matter what you pay is warmth, clean sheets on the bed, a toilet light that works, and to feel welcome. Burg Hostel doesn't provide this. Staff sit and smoke using the WiFi... More

Took them 10 minutes to send me and my companions in search of a better place.The location is nice, in the middle of this old medieval burg.Unfortunately the staff barely speak any languages other than Romanian and bits of Hungarian.The room I was offered looked more like a dungeon.Very disrespectful and ignorant folk.Good thing Sighisoara has plenty to offer.
