Lovely place, nice staff, easy to meet other travelers and it is just relaxed.
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.

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.
While I was quite pleased with this hostel at first I was quite disappointed when my travel partner woke up in the middle of the night to find bed bugs crawling all over him. The next morning we informed the hostel and didnt receive an apology or any sort of compensation, only that her cleaning was familiar with them and would take care of it. So disappointing. This can happen anywhere, from 5 star hotels to hostels in Romania, get an exterminator and this hostel will be 100%.
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 :)
One of the best hostels I have stayed at this far! The staff were very friendly and informative, always happy to help and very professional. It was a very sociable hostel met many people here socialising over food in the kitchen. It has a nice homely feel. If you go to Brasov be sure to stay here!
The hostel was very clean, the rooms big, the staff very friendly and helpful, only one negative, the beds cheeked every time you turned over. Good location, easy walking distance to main centre. Nice terrace to sit in the shade. Would recommend a d stay again.
The staff were amazing, they make the atmosphere great. It was, out of the 12 hostel we stayed in this trip, the most homely feeling and our favourite. They have a games room with tv and darts nice outdoor area and the most friendly dog known to man! At unbelievably short notice they arranged a driver for the day for a great price. The finish isn't amazing, the showers are in the basement etc but it doesn't matter. Only complaint need to be clearer they have a dog to avoid silly screaming girls!
