This hostel is more like your grandma house in the countryside. If you 're looking for a peaceful and easygoing original place, but just less than 10 minutes walk from the town centre, this is the one. Clean rooms and good beds. Excellent backyard with beautiful trees. Around a klm from the train & bus station. From the family who... More

Arrived on the overnight train, and was very grateful to be shown to an empty dorm room for a couple of hours of needed sleep. The rooms are clean and bright. The room I was in had lockers but only the key on one of the 4 worked. There was no kitchen facilities, and I did not recieve a towel.... More

I arrived in Cobwobs Hostel on a tuesday night, in november. I reckon it was not the best time to visit Romania and probably not the best moment to go to Maramures. Sighetu Marmatiei is a very small city, with not many things to visit. It was raining and really cold! And so was Cobwobs Hostel. The landlady did not... More

We boarded the sleeper train from Bucharest to Sighet with no idea what we were going to do or where we would stay, only that we wanted to see this rustic and beautiful part of Europe before it disappeared. Luckily for us we were identified as people without a plan at the station by friendly English couple (Duncan who owns... More

The hostel itself is really well located, very central, but off just a little into an alley, so very quiet (I was a woman staying alone - the alley posed absolutely no safety worries). Clean, comfortable, spacious room. Clean, well-functioning bathroom facilities. Extremely helpful and personable owners. They went out of their way to make my stay a success. Great... More

We enjoyed our stay at Cobwobs. The weather had just turned cold so to be shown to a very warm room was great. It was also, clean, bright and spacious.The bed was comfortable. The water was hot when it was supposed to be but there is not a continuous 24 hour supply. The bathrooms are clean, but not sparkling, some... More

The hostel is new and well maintained, our bed was comfortable. The stairs were a bit noisy at night but as it is a small hostel this was not a prolonged thing. Hostel owner and her family were very welcoming nd friendly and in some ways it was a little like a homestay. We loved the train ride up. Lots... More

Cobwobs is a special place. It was an oasis of calm in an otherwise hectic 3-week trip through eastern europe. We decided to stay on an extra 2 days to recharge our batteries, and would definitely stay there again next time we're in Romania. Cobwobs is also excellent value for money. Rob, the english owner/manager is the best kind of... More

Cobwobs is a great hostel. A beautiful garden where you can have barbecues, a friendly owner who goes out of his way to make your stay comfortable and interesting. The rooms are clean and spacious. Overall the atmosphere of the place is relaxing and enjoyable.
