I've spent 5 days in the Old Town Hostel and would have loved to stay longer. It's a perfect hostel. They have comfortable beds, a kitchen where you can meet the other guests and cook together, the staff is the most lovely one I've met so far and it's right in the center of Sibiu. Don't expect a hotel of... More

Hostel was in bad shape. Kitchen was the common room aswell, with no possibilities beside an incomplete card game and the board game risk, that probably made the whole atmosphere not as good as we had expected. Kitchen was doable. Location is good.

A very conveniently located hostel, located right in the heart of medieval Sibiu. Close to everything, nice kitchen, spacious rooms, clean bathroom. Staff is very friendly and accommodating, they will recommend nice places to visit, eat and drink. Overall, a great experience in Transylvania.

This is a review of one of the two apartments Old Town Hostel operates in Schiller Square, not a review of the hostel itself. The apartment is a very Spartan place and it is overpriced for the facilities provided. The kitchen did not have adequate dishes or pots, the microwave did not work, there were no towels for drying dishes... More

The location is perfect, right on the centre of the town. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Three kitchen is very well equipped, which is airways good when you're traveling for a long time. The dorm is comfortable. There are not many power outlets. There is one shower so you should take that in consideration of you have a... More

This hostel is located in the heart of the old town and is surrounded by beautiful buildings. There are ample places to eat and drink nearby, and a bar directly behind the stairs to the hostel. The hostel itself is adequate but only has two small bathrooms for twenty+ potential guests. The rooms have plenty of space and the beds... More

It's the worst place I have ever stayed at. Ok, the staff were helpful but this is the only plus of the place. if we hadn't paid on arrival, we would have tried looking for a different place even in the middle of the night. We asked for the bed sheets to be changed because the ones we were provided... More

The hostel could not provide a private room but did accommodate us in an apartment five minutes away. Reception was quick and easy and we were escorted to the apartment, a short walk through the square. The place has two very spacious rooms, a bedroom and a dining/kitchen or sitting room. It was very clean and had been mopped out... More

I would describe this hostel as a no thrills accommodation where you get the very basics needed for students and budget travellers. The location is perfect and the prices are very affordable. The beds and linen were okay and clean. The kitchen was old but acceptable. The bathroom looks outdated but it also acceptable. The staff are the best thing... More

The best thing about this hostel: The location! Overlooking the Piata Mica, and therefore in the middle of the beautiful Old Town of Sibiu, the location cannot be beat. Everything from museums, restaurants to cafes or shops is within walking distance. The hostel itself, however, is below average compared to the hostels I have stayed at all over the world.... More
