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.

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... More

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,... More

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... More

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... More

I actually stayed in this hostel 3,5 years ago for one night. I came to Sibiu without an accommodation and luckily found a bed here after wandering around the town searching for budget accommodation. The hostel itself is nothing great but the staff and the owner made the place more interesting especially because people make my travels awesome, not so... More

I want to preface this by saying that I've stayed at many, many hostels in my life - from Laos to India, and this was worst experience of my life. Neither am I hard to please. Staying here was marginally better than being homeless. First of all, I booked (and paid for) a bunk in a ROOM, not a hallway... More

Kind of like sleeping in an Ikea. Simple rooms with semi-worn mattresses... but... it's a hostel. The price was right, the bathrooms were clean, and I felt like my belongings were fairly safe. If I visit again and travel with enough people to get the private room, I'll probably stay here again. If I travel solo, it's probably more economic... More
