It's a hotel that serves as hostel, really clean, nice, amazing location (50m from train station), staff is great (they allowed me to pay the next day and to check out late at 1:30pm), there's no lockers but it's ok, the bathroom is great and room is great, they don't speak much english but you can still communicate (learn a bit of romanian, buna, multumesc, la revedere, bine, you'll be fine!), definitively great value for money. It's not a hostel so almost no atmosphere but it's a great place.
Good location near the train/bus station. It's more like a hotel. Staff is very good though some don't speak English.
Nice place near the train station in a quiet area and a short walk into town. I liked it but maybe too quiet for some people. Everything clean and tidy.
Did not feel like a hostel so much as a hotel with shared rooms. The rooms are really nice but it doesn't seem set up to meet people. Right near the train station which is nice but you have a little bit of a walk to get to anything worth seeing or doing.
more of a hotel than a hostel, saying this because there is no common area inside , there is a lovely backyard however. literally a minutes walk when exiting the train station (head to the right). cannot get more convenient than that. and although not in the heart of the town, it is only a 10 minute walk.
+ next to the railway station + hotel service for the price of a hostel - no breakfast
Linpo e bem localizado. Em determinadas horas, não havia quem falasse inglês. Pessoas fumando na cozinha (!) também não me pareceu bom. Mesmo assim, ainda acho que vale a pena, fica a un passo da Estaçâo de Trem (comboio).
Not sure why people are giving this place bad reviews. Sure, some of the staff doesn't speak English. Get out of your hole and explore the rest of the world - you'll note that English is not spoken everywhere and you'll have to get on with gestures and a smile. This being said, there really wasn't much of a communal atmosphere for solo travelers, and bring your own knife for the kitchen as theirs are pretty bad. Laundry isn't free, but at 10RON it's still not bad if you share a load.
close to the river if you want to go fishing close to the market if you want to get some fresh veg close to the train station if you travelling by train other things - average

Hostel was really amazing! Very clean, bright and with pleanty of space. The staff have little English but are very pleasant and friendly. Directions to the hostel from the train station were perfect. We spent a great two nights there.
A good hostel very close to the trainstation, and only about 10 minutes on foot to the Citadel/Old Town.
My Friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at the Gia Hostel in Sighisoara from Wednesday July 10th until Friday July 12th. It was perfectly located right beside the Train Station and the Staff there at the Gia Hostel were very Friendly and accomodating. My Friend and I could sit out in the Garden at the back and enjoy a quiet drink and chat while looking at the beautiful Forest behind us. Our room was very comfortable and the Shower and Toilet were excellent.
This place is very strange... the staff is not able to speak one single word off english... The kitchen is in the basement and everything is very old. The emplacement is ok,, about 10 min walk from the center.
