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 The bathroom looks outdated but it also acceptable.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

I like hostels like this because they have character. Nice rooms, comfy beds, decent showers. Plus the pub downstairs is really good with good staff behind the bar. Plus it's right in the old town. Check it out.

I stayed in the Old Town Hostel two years ago and liked it a lot. Therefore I booked it again for this years stay in Sibiu. However this time, instead of the four bed dorm I booked (the full four beds) we were displaced into a small appartment. It was away from the main square in a small road with... More

Stayed on the shared bedroom for a night. Great location, great view of the piata. The only downside is there is only one bathroom for 10 people and more. So we have to wait for others. The staff was friendly too and helped me with finding transport etc. worth coming back
