The hostel has been made out of a big house, around 30 beds. Very social as the common areas to hang out are a bit small so it's easy to talk to people. The terrace has a great view over the town and hills, which is great on a warm sunny day. Good fully equipped kitchen with all you need for cooking, though it can be a bit small at night when everyone wants to cook. Not many toilets, but I never had to wait too long to go. Probably one of the best and most social hostels in Brasov.

This was a lovely hostel, with free breakfast (always appreciated!!) and free all day tea and coffee. The dorm rooms were lovely and clean, and the staff were all very kind and helpful. Great place. I would definitely recommend it here. The town is only a quick walk away and there's plenty to see and do there. This hostel is a beautiful oasis!

I spent a couple of really nice days here. The staff is very kind and ready to help at every moment. I enjoyed the cleanliness all over the building, in the rooms and beds. The location is situated close to the historic city center and has a very good bus connection. I warmly want to recommend this location to everyone who wants to enjoy some beautiful days in Brașov.

I stayed for 2 nights in the private room with balcony and shared bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and the room was clean. The balcony was a nice bonus. The hostel facilities are nice, the kitchen is well equipped and they offer a light breakfast every morning from 7am to 11am. The bathrooms were clean and the shower was great. The best thing about the place is how knowledgeable the staff are and how willing they are to help - the guy who checked me in gave me lots of info about buses, all super helpful and very detailed. Highly recommended.
