The location of the hostel is great. The breakfast I had was fabulous...so so delicious! We even had fresh watermelon apart from the main breakfast menu. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The beds are comfy and they smell really fresh! It was very clean. There was a small issue with one of the lights (not working) in one... More

Actually folks, I did not stay there -- but even so, Mr. Rado, the manager of Retro Youth Hostel, took his time to map out a sight seeing itinerary for me. What a nice man. I am very impressed that he shared his experience with me, even though all I bought was a mineral water. Regarding the place, it was... More

I stayed in a single on the ground floor. The place was reasonably clean and the wifi was faster than anywhere I'd stayed before. Staff were nice too and breakfast was very good. You can choose from a menu and you can have fried eggs, an omlet etc. I had stayed at the Transylvanian hostel before and I thought I'd... More

I highly recommend this hostel. The position is optimal: in the very heart of the old town, the most characteristic, beautiful and peaceful place in the city. All the staff members are very nice, welcoming, always ready to share useful information. Jon recommended me a very nice traditional restaurant which is only 10 minutes walk away and it was so...

Hostel is close to main square. Staff is very friendly. Breakfast is perfect and you have four options. In addition to these rooms are very clean and tidy. There is a place that you can sit and spend your time in a peaceful atmosphere.

a really nice place, great location in the old town next to everything. staff is nice and friendly. a lot of stairs and make sure you book a place a long while before you are arriving, according to the fact that cluj is a students' city and during the weekend you can't find a single bad available.

Location couldn't be better, right in the centre of Cluj. The rooms are very nice, facilities great (with sauna!), super yummy breakfast and the best of it all is definitely the staff. They are ALL extremely kind and attentive, go out of their way to help you with anything, always with a smile. I strongly recommend it!
