For us as a family it was good for a couple of nights. I wouldn't recommend for solo travellers looking to make friends. Decent beds and the rooms and bathrooms were clean, but there was an awful smell coming from our bathroom that would fill up the whole room if the door was left open. Decent restaurant attached which is... More

Burg Hostel is situated in the heart of Sighisoara. we really enjoyed our stay there as it was easy to move around and see the sights. We were also very lucky to get a big room to ourselves. The beds were very comfortable and clean. The staff was very helpful in organising taxis for us. Overall a great experience There... More

Very good for groups of people, we were 6 and found a 6 beds room wich was what we wanted. Old looking place but perfect for shorts stay. Nice and helpful stuff . Very good location right in the center ,very close to where Dracula's house is, lost of restaurants and coffee places.

We stayed only a night here, we shared the room with another person, but we weren`t so enthusiastic when we saw the room.It had only two small windows, there were 6 beds, so I don`t think I would stay there if it`s too crowded. The big plus is the location, it`s right in the middle of Sighisoara Citadel, so if... More

In the average. Definitely well located, right in the middle of the little medieval village. Honestly I had a good time there, was during the winter and the atmosphere all around was stunning,the cold and the mist. The hostel itself is nice maybe a little bit more like a pension rather than a typical youth hostel. We had booked a... More

I stopped here for dinner thinking it was a cozy, little place, but from my first step into the dining area, I was frozen by the look from the outrageously rude waitress. I even asked her if she was open because she made no move to greet my party of four. I had interrupted her smoky conversation with a friend... More

I stayed at Burg Hostel in August. The big plus is location, location, location – you’re in the middle of the citadel, so right next to the sights. And for that, you need to hike up the stairs with your luggage. But once you’re up there, it’s magical and at night, you can wander freely (just beware the church bells... More

Great location in the centre of Sighisoara, a couple of metres away from the main square. The staff was polite and gave us advice on the parking place (outside the citadel's walls) and the wifi (which doesn't work in the rooms). There is one PC for guests at the reception, but it's always busy. We had a triple room with... More

Rooms and bathrooms were clean and cozy, although higher level rooms can get pretty hot in the summer. There is only one computer and the wifi doesn't work in the rooms so can it can be hard to get connected. The staff was not very friendly but, besides that, I enjoyed my stay at the Burg.

The house in itself is quite cozy, a lot of wood, felt a little bit like staying in a ski resort in Austria. Downstairs is the restaurant and a little terrace. The cook made me a delicious spaghetti bolognese. The room was ok, the adjoining bathroom could use some renovation, the bed wasn't the most comfourtable one I ever slept... More
