If you want a cheap place to stay a night, then its good. It also has a bar downstairs worth visiting. There's an ATM, shop and everything you need nearby. The wifi though didn't work on our phones. For tablets, it worked fine. Be careful with the beds as the planks tend to fall. And try avoiding sleeping on the...

The staff is very helpful and friendly (please follow the recommendations of Silviu for Restaurants and Bars) and it is located just on the centre of Sibiu in a very historic building. It is extremely clean as well.

I've spent 5 days in the Old Town Hostel and would have loved to stay longer. It's a perfect hostel. They have comfortable beds, a kitchen where you can meet the other guests and cook together, the staff is the most lovely one I've met so far and it's right in the center of Sibiu. Don't expect a hotel of...

Hostel was in bad shape. Kitchen was the common room aswell, with no possibilities beside an incomplete card game and the board game risk, that probably made the whole atmosphere not as good as we had expected. Kitchen was doable. Location is good.

A very conveniently located hostel, located right in the heart of medieval Sibiu. Close to everything, nice kitchen, spacious rooms, clean bathroom. Staff is very friendly and accommodating, they will recommend nice places to visit, eat and drink. Overall, a great experience in Transylvania.

This is a review of one of the two apartments Old Town Hostel operates in Schiller Square, not a review of the hostel itself. The apartment is a very Spartan place and it is overpriced for the facilities provided. The kitchen did not have adequate dishes or pots, the microwave did not work, there were no towels for drying dishes...

This hostel is located in the heart of the old town and is surrounded by beautiful buildings. There are ample places to eat and drink nearby, and a bar directly behind the stairs to the hostel. The hostel itself is adequate but only has two small bathrooms for twenty+ potential guests. The rooms have plenty of space and the beds...

It's the worst place I have ever stayed at. Ok, the staff were helpful but this is the only plus of the place. if we hadn't paid on arrival, we would have tried looking for a different place even in the middle of the night. We asked for the bed sheets to be changed because the ones we were provided...

The hostel could not provide a private room but did accommodate us in an apartment five minutes away. Reception was quick and easy and we were escorted to the apartment, a short walk through the square. The place has two very spacious rooms, a bedroom and a dining/kitchen or sitting room. It was very clean and had been mopped out...
