If you are stopping in Sighet then this is the place to stay. It is run by an Englishman named Rob. He is very helpful and will take you on day trips at a very reasonable rate. He will also recommend places to visit and dine and knows all the public transport options. The hostel is along one of the main streets and is within walking distance of the centre and train station. It is situated down a long driveway away from the traffic and is surrounded by fruit trees and has a nice area to sit outdoors. It also has wifi, lots of written info on the area, a good kitchen and clean modern facilities. The only downside is the hot water is only on for a short while in the morning and evening so make sure you check out when it's on before hopping in. The mattresses are a bit on the thin and hard side so if you have a bad back you will be in for a long night. But these are certainly not reasons to cross this place off your list.
Otherwise it's fantastic & I would definitely stay here again.
