The location is super central and the staff is extremely helpful. The beds are comfy and it is all clean. The atmosphere was great. The shower was tiny but I liked that each room had its own bathroom.

I find this place to be a great accomodation if you come for the weekend with friends for skiing or snowboarding. The host is very chatty and they help you with everything you need. It is warm, hot running water, kitchen and huge rooms. I highly recommend it!

I was at this hostel and was amazing! The owner couple (Angi and Titus) are very kind and always available to help you in any question or problem! The hostel is affordable, clean and had the better location in Brasov, just at the Piata Sfatului!

Although there wasn't much for Internet this place was a perfect stop. Our host was amazingly helpful and when she wasn't at the reception she gave us her personal number if we needed any help at all. I felt very safe and the hostel was very clean. There aren't any kitchen facilities but you are right in the heart of... More

I have travelled the World hosteling during the last thirty five years. This ranks amongst the very best of them. It is safe, great for budget travelers, clean ,bed linen changed daily, centrally located close to all required possible amenities and great attention to detail. Hostels are only buildings at the end of the day, Angie makes the difference, approachable,... More

Overall the experience was ok, just few things like: The room had a weird smell. We never got internet password, even if we asked by sms (because she was not at the reception never) without success. The last day was Monday and we wanted to left our luggage for a while, but once again, impossible because nobody was there. But... More

I visited this spring the city of Brasov with some friends and we wanted to stay in the centre and not to pay lots of money. We found the hostel on the internet and made the reservation, not being sure of what we will find. I am glad we have done it as our staying there was pleasant. The hostel... More

We went there with our bikes (being involved in a contest). Such abike-frienfly place there! The hosts were very welcoming and nice. They even showed us a map with the bike tracks in the area. The rooms were clean, the bathrooms were very clean, the hostel was very close to the old center in Brasov, so it was pretty easy... More

My favorite hostel in Romania for sure! Right in the middle of Brasov but super calm, super clean and the staff (Angelica?) was super nice. There is a courtyard inside with a nice balcony. No kitchen but I would recommand it without any hesitation!
