I've stayed in the annex building. Room was not bad, the bathroom needs a bit of improvement. They have a restaurant and the food was quite good. Very good location in the old city center of Sighisoara.

not much to say: the price tells it all. good location but apart from that....not recommended. The bathroom is creepy and dirty. Generally the town is beautiful but in the evening there's nothing to do-literally nothing.

I stayed at this hostel in the winter and there were very few guests so I had an entire dorm room on the top floor to myself. The wifi didn't work up there but it was very clean and compfy. The hostel is perfectly located in the old town but a bit problematic if you have a car. Besides snow,...

The hostel is situated exactly in the old town, a perfect location for sightseeing in Sighisoara. I payed about 10 euro per person for a two bed room wih a bathroom. It was clean, good standard, hot water, friendly staff speaking good in english. I fully recommend this place, the name says 'hostel' but the standard is waaay better :)

Pros: The location is right in the middle of old town Sighisoara. I had a small private room with a shared bath. The bed was OK. The breakfast was good. The price was undoubtedly good for the area. Cons: I don't think this was really a hostel. There was no place to cook or even heat up water. Their restaurant...

It's very nice located in the heart of the old city. Unfortunately this is the only positive thing. The bathroom of the 6 bed room was very dirty and the sheets also. Another bad thing was the personnel which was almost absent. I would not recommend this hostel.

Pretty much everything about my stay was decent, nothing extraordinarily good or bad about it. It was a good location right in the centre, the food at the restaurant is good and well-priced. Wifi works great in the common area but not in the room. Room was clean. Got a set of bunk beds when my reservation was for a...

This place really surprised me! I arrived on a stormy day with a very sore back and not in the best of moods. I also arrived 5 hours early and wasn't able to check in. Inside was a friendly little woman who let me drop off my stuff while I went off to explore a bit. I kept everything in...

Me and my girlfriend only stayed here for one night on our way to Cluj Napoca. The owner wasn't really being involved, almost disinterested. The room was a bit stale, the mattress was torn but the sheets were clean. I missed the typical hostel atmosphere, it felt more like a pension or motel. For one night it was okay but...
