Situated in the only inhabited medieval fortress in Europe, Burg Hostel is a basic but charming combined hotel and restaurant for youths (and not only). The food ( 3 euro/lunch) and the accommodation (7 euro/person) are fabulous!

We had chicken paprikas and beef goulash. They tasted very good, felt like home-made food. The restaurant is not fancy or good looking, but it serves its scope - eating. Service was good, toilets clean.

Had a twin room for the night which had its own en suite and was good! Although you could hear every movement from the room next door and the beds were so squeaky ! The staff about 10 of them all just stared at me and my friend no matter what we were doing. In terms of ordering food I've... More

We stayed in the hostel so it was perfect to grab breakfast here. The cheese and ham omlettes were very tasty, the staff very nice and friendly, we enjoyed our breakfast in the small terrace in the sunshine. If we stayed longer, we should definitely have tried their lunch menus too! I really liked that they are supporting various local... More

I ordered some vegetarian stuffed cabbage rolls. Unfortunately they turned out frozen on the inside. After I made this clear to the waiter, my plate was placed in a microwave after which i could continue my dinner.

The restaurant is in the heart of the Old City, with very tasty Romanian food, nice people serving and democratic prices. Try medieval plate - it is big enough for 4 persons for the price of 50 RON!! we had very nice time there and I recommend it.

After we've waited for an hour for a pasta and a goulash, even though they only had 3 or 4 tables occupied , I heard the staff talking about how they're starting the goulash now and couldn't find the tomato sauce for the pasta. We left, didn't taste the food but the people next to us said that it's better... More
