I stayed for one night in a 8-bed room. I really appreciated that the room was clean and comfortable, the bathroom was always clean, even though many people were using it. I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and, the best part, the garden. Next time I have to stay a night in Cluj I"ll definitely go there.

I booked a 2-night stay in a 6-bed dorm, but wasn't informed that people staying in the adjoining dorm had to pass through my room. That really sucked because it meant that ALL NIGHT (until 4:30 a.m.), there were bedroom doors opening and closing and people passing in and out and my sleep was repeatedly disturbed. I feel that in... More

If you look for the perfect hostel in Cluj, just go there. Perfect for partying, visiting the city, making new friends, having good time. The staff is super super cool and very helpful if you need anything.

Looking for accomodation in Cluj-Napoca I've found this one. And yes, it deserved to be my choice for one night! Cluj-Napoca has higher prices (comparing to other cities) but I got a great price of 12.50 euro for one bed in dormitories. Free breakfast, very central (just a few minutes far from many touristic attractions and some bars and clubs),... More

Only stayed here for 2 nights, but it has been great. The people are willing to help at what time you want, and they have daily activities (dinner, going for drinks). When I woke up I saw breakfast, which is free to use. They are flexible with your departure and arrival time which is a good thing for hitchhikers. Great... More

I stayed in this hostel for tonight and really had a good time there and in this cool city. It's really close to attractions and bars and restaurants. Room was big and bed was okay and there's a big locker for every one. Adding some small tables would be good idea as backpackers always have some things to keep them... More

Right in the centre of town, this hostel is in a lovely old house on the first floor. With its huge kitchen, nice dorms and living room, this is a cool place to meet other hostellers in this nice university town.

This hostel has a great location, staff are very friendly and it is clean. If you're traveling solo you get to make a lot of friends there since they go wine tasting and other stuff in groups. I liked this place.
