This hostel is just THE BEST!!! Great location - in a quiet street, a few steps away from the main square -, beautiful spaces - an old building with tall ceilings, cosy furnishings - and I don’t know where they get their staff from, but they’re just amazing!!!!! All of them!!! Friendly and helpful, and they plan your nights out...

I think this is the best hostel to stay in Cluj. Definitely has the hostel vibe. Is very close to city center and easy to reach. The breakfast though might be something they can think off, was very poor.

I had such a nice time at this hostel. First things first, when I saw they had both a guitar and a keyboard in the common room, I was sold. My favorite part of the day was to hang in the sun in the garden and play guitar, awesome!! Fully stocked kitchen, big rooms, clean bathrooms and showers, great game...

I would highly recommend this hostel, Not are the facilities excellent but also the breakfast which is included in the price along with the beautiful garden. I couldn't imagine staying at a better place in Cluj and the staff really make you feel special. I would definitely stay here again.

The hostel is perfectly located in the heart of Cluj. There are great facilities. The staff are awesome and go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable at the hostel. They also had good recommendations for activities/sights to do and see, as well as restaurants to visit. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

Thank you Transylvania Hostel for a wonderful experience! The owners, Iuliana and Brian, plus all the staff are genuine and welcoming people. You will feel like part of a family. I'm only sorry I couldn't stay longer as it is time for me to start making my way home. I will be back!

Centrally located, this non party hostel is a great place to stay for a couple of nights to explore Cluj. We had a twin room with a shared bathroom for the equivalent of £12 a night. The room was huge, with two double beds. It has a lovely courtyard, and a central kitchen, games room and living space. Breakfast is...

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...
