When I arrived in Cluj Napoca I did not know where to stay. I hesitated to stay at a hotel, but then found this hostel which was the best decision I could have made. The people at reception made me feel welcome and gave me all the information I could need and showed me around the hostel. The daily Palinka... More

The moment you walk in to the building you feel captivated by the charm of the building. There is a lovely courtyard downstairs and a common room with a separate games room upstairs as well as a full kitchen too. Warm and welcoming team gives good advice about things to see and do around the city. Lovely touches of decor... More

The place is probably the best hostel in Transylvania! The staff is always friendly and they make sure you feel like you're right at home. The location is central and readily accessible, free wi-fi, clean rooms and comfortable beds. If you're in town, this place is where you should be staying ;)

After a few roller coaster weeks this homey feeling hostel was a wonderful place to unwind, socialize and feel secure. The facilities were all there, with good bathrooms and a full kitchen, not like some hostels that claim a kitchen and have only a microwave. The property is interesting, with balcony and courtyard garden area. The highlight of this central... More

Great hostel. Super friendly staff who made us very welcome. The hostel is in the perfect location for the old town part of Cluj. We had a double private room which was very big and very clean, excellent toilet facilities also. I would definitely use it again.

I had a great time at this hostel! First the hostel is quite big, with high ceilings and big rooms! And all of the guests were in the living room chilling and having a good time! Super great staff and guests made the stay really enjoyable! Plus the hostel is perfectly located. I would definitely recommend!

Due to the techno music event, we could only stay here for 1 night, but it was great in a twin room. A nice shot of the local spirit, and helpful info from the staff.
