My husband and I booked one night in Cluj-Napoca purely to break up our journey from Timisoara to Suceava. As this was a necessity rather than a desire to visit the city, we wanted the cheapest option available just to bed down for a night. We stayed in a private double room in Transylvania Hostel and it was definitely a... More

I booked two nights at this hostel because I was planning on spending my birthday here and then leaving. I ended up staying seven nights. While Cluj is a great city, the thing that kept me from leaving was the hostel. I was fortunate to be there at the same time as a few groups of people who were awesome... More

I stayed for one night in a 8-bed room. I really appreciated that the room was clean and comfortable, the bathroom was always clean, even though many people were using it. I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and, the best part, the garden. Next time I have to stay a night in Cluj I"ll definitely go there.

I booked a 2-night stay in a 6-bed dorm, but wasn't informed that people staying in the adjoining dorm had to pass through my room. That really sucked because it meant that ALL NIGHT (until 4:30 a.m.), there were bedroom doors opening and closing and people passing in and out and my sleep was repeatedly disturbed. I feel that in... More

Looking for accomodation in Cluj-Napoca I've found this one. And yes, it deserved to be my choice for one night! Cluj-Napoca has higher prices (comparing to other cities) but I got a great price of 12.50 euro for one bed in dormitories. Free breakfast, very central (just a few minutes far from many touristic attractions and some bars and clubs),... More

Only stayed here for 2 nights, but it has been great. The people are willing to help at what time you want, and they have daily activities (dinner, going for drinks). When I woke up I saw breakfast, which is free to use. They are flexible with your departure and arrival time which is a good thing for hitchhikers. Great... More

I stayed in this hostel for tonight and really had a good time there and in this cool city. It's really close to attractions and bars and restaurants. Room was big and bed was okay and there's a big locker for every one. Adding some small tables would be good idea as backpackers always have some things to keep them... More
