Great showers with incredible pressure and hot water, though none of the ones I used drained properly - was standing in ankle deep water by the end of an average shower. The kitchen is big, breakfast is a few types of cereals with (non instant) coffee. There is a big common room downstairs and no dorms are down there so you don't have to be quiet at night. They give you a free drink every night you stay! Bit of a walk to the town centre but that's the only slight downfall at all.
The staff welcomes you with a free drink. Judit was one of the most charming recepcionists we've ever met and helped with everything we needed. The hostel has an area to rest and socialize. There is free wi-fi and breakfast. The only thing I didn't like was the smell in the bathroom, which seemed clean, though.
Good hostel, maybe did I not so much enjoy having y room next to the kitchen, but this is a detail.
Lovely place, nice staff, easy to meet other travelers and it is just relaxed.
Great hostel just off the centre (5 mins walk). Really friendly staff, some of comfiest beds on our trip, excellent kitchen, loads of showers, nice garden + common room for chilling out, and a free beer to top it all off. Perfect!
Stayed for one night before heading to the mountains for a couple of days. On our day of departure, we asked to book a room for a couple of days time, when we returned to Brasov. We were told that this would not be a problem. However, when we returned to the hostel a couple of days later, we were told by a member of staff that our room had been given away and they were now fully booked. Not really good enough, but I guess for the price customer service doesn't have to be great.

Clean and comfortable hostel located in a good area of Brasov (only 10 mins walk from main square). Staff were friendly and facilities good - there is a large and well equipped common room. Included breakfast is basic but worthwhile, and a free beer with each night of your stay is another plus! The tour run by the hostel is unguided but still good value - a driver drives you between the palace in Sinaia, Bran Castle and Rasnov fortress, giving you plenty of time to explore each.
Great place to stay lovely staff very accommodating

Good hostel. Good staff. Good atmosphere. Good wifi. Good kitchen. Only a 5 min walk to the all the bars etc and easy to get to train station etc from here. Highly recommend this place, would stay here again next time in Brasov..
Really good hostel in a lovely city. The hostel is really well equipped with all the necessities and beyond. Atmosphere was ok, but the staff could engage a bit more with the guests. But still there was only one problem (though a tiny one), the wooden floors and doors were squeaky.
Fantastic Hostel. Would recommend to anyone. Short walk to the main drag of Brasov. I stayed in the largest dorm room with 12 beds and was 100% fine. Great sized room. Great breakfast in the morning. Common rooms great and clean bathrooms. Everything you need is here. Staff are very helpful as well.
Very nice staff. Very helpful . Wifi not the best but adequate
Excellent hostel experience. The hostel is a huge building, not far from the old town. The dorm rooms are big with high ceilings. There is a big kitchen with gas stove and clean bathrooms. There is a large common room and a garden outside. The staff, especially Ramona, is friendly and helpful. FRee bottled drink every night you stay.”
Absolutely loved my stay here. Staff was amazing, especially Sebi. Nice kitchen, lounge room and patio. Located close to everything worth visiting in Brasov. Met really nice people. Hostel organised a great tour for me and another girl to visit the bear sanctuary and the castles, thanks Sebi :) Would highly recommend it!
The hostel was fine, but not totally what I expected with a rare this high. Showers can be improved and some of the staff isn't very friendly, on the other hand, some are super helpful.
Hostel was good.. Internet worked, 10 minute walk to old town! Only bad thing is you can't sit outside after 9:30 which kinda sucks! Staff was friendly and informative. Overall nice place to stay
This was a lovely hostel. My co-traveler said if was the best he'd been in this trip in Europe. It was definitely clean, friendly and well-located. free drink and towels were also a nice perk. It was recommended to us by Care2Travel, a volunteer organization that places backpackers that want to volunteer in Transylvania in short or long volunteer placements and it was also a very nice experience.
Certainly an excellent hostel, very clean, bed ok, great atmosphere, staff helpfull and kaind! Ten minute walk to pedestrian area!!! One of the best I've been This summer
Wonderful experience! Super friendly staff and awesome atmosphere. Very close to a nice grocery store and farmer's market. Cute back yard with beautiful outdoor seating area.
Great chilled out hostel, plenty of outdoor space, awesome vibes all round. Not exactly a party hostel (but in a ood way). I'll be back soon :)
