There is a discotheque in the same building. in case you would like to sleep Friday and Saturday nights you should stay somewhere else. The maddresses must be left overs from the communist period - yes, they're that bad. Excellent central location

We stayed in Sibiu for two nights. Instead of the double room we had reserved online, we stayed in one of the apartments that belong to the hostel (paying only the price for a double room!), ca. 5 min walk from piata mica. Our apartment was really big for two persons (double bed + 2 sofas). We had our own...

Their website looks very cool - there is written they offer "double, twin and dorm rooms (4, 6 and 8 beds), all with own bathroom," The truth is they have a room with 10 beds and 2 rooms for 4 people. Not really private as they are all connected. They have just one toilet. Also another "lie" - they write...

We spend only one night, but it very nice and cozy place. Nice kitchen for cooking and preparing food and also nice and clean bathroon. Very big advantage is that this place is right in the center of the city.

The hostel is one of those hostels that hsve the potential to be great if they out a bit of effort! The mattress r so old u can feel the springs on every bed, my back would kill every morning waking up, then came the 15 minute que for the toilet since there was only one for 14 beds. The...

I have mixed feelings about this hostel. Pros: excellent location. Absolutely wonderful. You're right on the small square. There's a nice bar below worth visiting (not affiliated with the hostel). The rooms are big and spacious - most hostels I've been in try to cram as many beds next to each other as possible, which makes maneuvering a bit of...

Hygiene - what's that? Only one (dirty) bathroom. The bed I slept in was sooo noisy and the sheets didn't look clean at all. This place isn't worthy of hosting tourists in the very middle of such a beautiful city.

Probably one of the dirtiest places I ever slept in. The beds are bad, the sheets are some rags and the bathroom - one bathroom for the entire hostel, which means 1 toilet and 1 shower is as just horribly dirty. Like. Dirty. Definitely not recommending. The only up is the location, which is really nice but other than that,...

I stayed here in 2014 with a friend whilst backpacking through Romania. This was hands down my favourite hostel in Romania; we met some amazing people here, and the boy at the help desk was hilariously funny, super obliging, and spoke impeccable English. (During our stay in Brasov the help desk boy spoke next to no English, although I'm sure...

The idea of writing this review came to me as I was lying wide awake at 4 AM in the noisiest, filthiest place I've ever slept in. Hopefully someone will read it and stay away, for even though this place is cheap, it is not cheap enough. Here are some of the things me and my group of friends have...
