Gabriel Hostel
Ranked #9 of 93 Specialty Lodging in Brasov
Reviewed May 16, 2012

Ok, so I did not actually stay at the hostel, but, my friend and I did get a tour of Brasov by Gabriel. When we stepped off the train, he was waiting, advertising his hostel, and asked if we wanted to see Dracula's Castle. We were planning on doing that anyway, but going with him made the experience so much better. For a great value, he drove us directly to the castle, telling us all sorts of Romanian history along the way. When we got to the area of the castle, he knew everyone, and saved us a lot of time and got us right in without having to wait in a line. After seeing the castle, he dropped us back in the historical city center, suggesting sites for us to see and places for us to eat. All in all, he truly sweetened our day trip to Brasov. Meet the man who feeds wild bears!

The hostel was OK. I don't know what I missed, as I can see that it has a very high rating, but our room was rather cold, and we didn't always have hot water in bathrooms. For me it is also a minus because they don't have any common room or kitchen and the fact that we had to take our shoes off in the hallway. The staff was pleasant.

I was recently traveling through Transylvania and stopped off in Brasov.
Villa Gabriel has a great location (close to town, but not in town so parking and noise weren't a problem) about a 10 minute walk from the town square.

What drew my attention to the hostel was the freshly painted facade. From the inside, it was even better! Clean and updated rooms, large showers, endless hot water, computer available, two electrical outlets for each bunk. Good service and value!

I would certainly stay again.
