This guest house is located next to the train station and is 10 minutes away from the old town. The rooms are very beautifully decorated and were very clean. They had free WiFi. There is a kitchen in the basement where you can cook and relax. A nice place to stay for a night or two.
I had some problems in this hostel. I paid and the person in the reception lost the money... Then she accused me to steal the money... It was such bad atmosfere that I left the hostel, even that I already paid it... Latter they called in the other hostel to say that they found the money and then gave me back all the money that I paid. Despite all this problens, I didn't like the hostel at all... I stayed in another one in the old town... Much better place!
Kitchen could have been cleaned a fair bit and better stocked. But it was very very clean upstairs in all the rooms. It's not near the centre but close to the train and a nice 10 min walk to the main tourist area. It was a nice hostel, no atmosphere though
Not really a hostel, rather a B & B. Staff rarely seen and indifferent rather than friendly.
The twin room we rented was clean and had a private bathroom. We had a fridge with (purchasable) drinks on the reception. The building seemed to be new (probably remodeled). We didn't see other guests so we didn't socialize (our visit was on September, though). The mattress wasn't really confortable. Nice staff.
This is more of a hotel than a hostel. They have converted the attic to six person dorms. I was the only person in my room during my stay. On the plus side - private room and bath for hostel rate. On the negative side - no one to chat to, no atmosphere. There is no lounge, kitchen, breakfast, etc. But rooms are clean, bathrooms are nice, easy walk to city center.
NOT ONE WORD ENGLISH AT THE RECEPTION! And if you ask them for information they continue to talk in Romanian and finally get irritated and start talking to next customer. No Breakfast at all (not included/not available). Property is very then walled & staff begins loudly communicating around 8:00 on Sunday morning already. Location is is fine. Could be much more sympathetic place if staff would speak (some) English and would be user friendly.
