Location is a 15 minutes walk from the centre. Ultra clean with a lady of the house who keeps things firm in hand and that results in an impressive list on the walls of do's en don'ts (one is pretty particular: 'clean up the water on the floor and remove your hair from the sink in the shower'). You have to negociate for a bedsheet and a very small towel is for rent for 5 LEI. Basic breakfast with bread, butter, jam, coffee or tea. No vibe or ambience in the place, but it's very quiet.

Thank you. Ok, in any other hostel are lists or rules on the walls,in the rooms or bathroom.There's nothing strange to clean after your shower that other tourists can use the bathroom.When everything is shared: rooms, bathroom it's normal to have respect. Each bed has bedsheet, I do not understand what you negotiated Towels are normal.Indeed it is a clean and quiet hostel,we like it and we would like tourists to be pleased .


The hostel was much cleaner than other hostels we stayed at which we really appreciated. Breakfast was provided which was really nice, but they were not very accommodating about changing the time of breakfast if you needed to leave early. The sinks in the bathroom are REALLY small and very awkwardly situated. It was difficult to wash your face without soaking the bathroom floor or banging your head on the small shelf under the mirror. They towels for rent are ridiculously small.

Thank you for appreciation. It is a time of breakfast serving, we can not change depending on the departure of all tourists. The bathroom has been designed to be used by more tourists in the same time.Towels are normal, not small and not XXL


I stayed here 3 nights great value for money, easy to find, good conversations with staff about romanian society ,and in a scenic part of town

Thank you, have a nice trip !


The hostel was a short walk away from the main square of the town, it was easy to find your way to food and sites. It was very clean and well kept. There is a lockable gate so it is safe, you don't have to worry. Super friendly and helpful staff. We got a map and were shown where everything we might want to see was on the map. We also got an excellent deal with the owner, Gabriel to give us a tour. He was very nice and professional, we saw everything we had in mind and more. Favorite hostel.
