We stayed three nights in a double room a few weeks ago. The room was huge and really nice. Overall the hostel was very, very clean and quiet. There is no common room or kitchen, socialising with other guests didn’t really happen but the staff is friendly and happy to help with any problem or to recommend things to do... More

Excellent, clean, safe place. The management are clearly proud of their excellent hostel. Would recommend to solo, couples and groups. It is close to the old town and has excellent views a short walk away. There is someone there to help out all the time also.

Hi Gabriel, Thanks again for a fantastic tour. Everything was really great and you are very informative and professional. The tours were perfect and your inside information really made for a wonderful experience. I would do it all again and hope to come back in the future. Thanks, Chase

After having a bad experience at another hostel in Brasov this place was like a palace!! Very clean rooms and bathrooms. It was very quiet when we were there - I think we were the only guests, we had a 10 bed dorm to ourselves!! A shame because it's a great hostel which maybe hasn't built up a good reputation... More

I stayed here just after the Christmas rush and it was perfect. Our hosts provided awesome and clean services. They helped us map out a walking tour of the old city. They also provided an awesome tour of the local castles and fortresses. The room was very clean and comfortable. Gabriel is multilingual with English, French, Spanish, Italian and so... More

Place has got good location, staff is quite helpfull. But I trully advise against renting the cottage - place is awful, there is no wifi and bathroom is in another building, where romanian familly lives. It's better to get place in dorm in the normall hostel than in this cottage.

Gabriel is a very pleasant and warm person and i strongly recommend anyone coming to Brasov to link up with him. It was a big problem for a solo traveller like me to cover many places at a low cost but Gabriel kept communication and always updates me if there are any groups doing tours that I can join in....

We were very fortunate to run into Gabriel at the train station. We were going to go to Bran and Peleş castles by ourselves but ended up with Gabriel for the day. A wonderful tour guide! He drove us from Braşov to Sinaia for Peleş castle, via a quaint monastery, then through the mountains to Bran. We joined tours at... More
