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

First the positives: The location of this hostel is great, you are right in the citadel and the sights are all very close. However This was by far the worst hostel I stayed in in Romania, I think they have abused their position as the only hostel in the citadel. The staff were not friendly, the room was not particularly... More

Although this hostel is in a great location I would not recommend it to anyone - the rooms smell horribly like grease and toilet and even opening the windows the entire day will not help. Wifi does not work and the staff is ok but nothing more. I would recommend this only if you are on a very very tight... More

This nice rustic place is all about its location in the heart of the medieval Citadel. One night is probably enough to feel the atmosphere. Good value if booked via booking platforms. There is no kitchen.

The location is just perfect, but the staff is absolutely not friendly and the shower was okay but definetely the worst of all the hostels I have been in my romanian trip! I would recommand to stay there if you want to be in the heart of Citadel (location is really important for me), but if you want a comfy... More

Great Location RIGHT in the heart of the Citadel. Very well priced as well at 115 RON a night for a private room with a bath. Room was large, clean and right off the restaurant. Name 'hostel' is misleading as you can expect NO help from staff with regards to information on any subject. There is no kitchen. This is... More
