We booked a private room, and were told that they didnt have one available at the moment in the hostel, but they had one close to the train station. We accepted (it was even more convenient for us) and were driven there. The apartment turned out to be a bit dirty (stained and dusty sheets). The next day we had agreed for the keys to be picked up at a certain time. The man who came to pick them up showed up 20mins earlier and was very impatient that we weren't fully packed yet.
Nice hostel, easy to get to from train station, there is a bus stop right near the hostel. Diana was super friendly, cheerful and helpful with things to see and do in and around Brasov. My only problem though is that they offer a driver to drive you on day trips, which was a bit expensive, and they kind of push you into doing it this way rather than by yourself. The driver, Greg, was nice, but always hurrying us along. Only 2 bathrooms for the whole hostel meant that there were usually queues.
Great hostel. My second time staying here. Staff as energetic and helpful as ever. Full marks to them!
Great place to stay! Tidy and clean, and located only 10 minutes from the city centre (by foot), with a bunch of nice, small grocery shops and bars nearby. The staff is excellent, really nice and eager to help you get the most out of your stay.

A lot of guests, should be more bathrooms.
The staff was very welcoming, informative, and helpful. There may be a few shortcomings (ten minute walk from city centre, too few bathrooms) but the atmosphere, staff, and hospitality make up for all of that. Worth the time and money.
I cannot recommend this hostel enough for the friendliness of the staff and the fantastic atmosphere. It's quite far from the train station and a 15 minute walk from the town but it's totally worth it. The facilities are clean, comfortable and there's lots of information on activities in the local area.
I enjoyed staying at Rolling Stone Hostel. It's a family owned hostel so yes, it's kind of like you're staying at someone's house. Sylvia is really friendly and helful at the same time, so there were no problem staying there.
The staff, Diana, was very helpful and explained everything around Brasov to see in a nice way. Apart from that nothing much goes in the favor of the hostel. We booked 2 beds in a 6 bed dorm but were shoved in a 12 bed dorm. Only two WC for all the guests, had to wait in queue, not clean, lacked toilet papers. I guess the staff tried to scare us with stories of taxi drivers conning people while travelling to nearby places so that we use the hostel travel facilities.
Lovely girls running the place! Very personable , dynamic and fun-loving! I'd go back in a heartbeat!
Be careful with the payment! You must pay in local currency and there is some difference in the total when the staff converts the value from euro to Lei. Probably you will pay one or two euros more than planned according the site.
Staff really good, not enough bathrooms, breakfast of just bread is not great. Rooms overall good.
Where to start? :) You can't help but mention what positive and enthusiastic bundles of energy the staff are here :) Really great :) Also want to send a bit shout out to the driver who brought us to Tepes and Bran, great guy :) Could have easily stay a bit longer here. The place may seem like it is well outside the centre but it isn't. It's a great location. Great place
The breakfast is poor, but the place is ok and in a walking distance from the city. The staff were really helpful!
We were told breakfast would be included. This included a loaf of bread and butter. Also it's noted that it's near the city center-- its about a 15 minute walk to the main area. Also it says towels are included--they are not and the towel I received was tiny. The doors of the hostel are kept open at all times and we never received an actual room key so I didn't feel very safe. Lastly, some of the beds are comfortable but some are just like wood. However, the staff is very nice and very helpful.

Here provides clean dorms with friendly staffs. And of course, with relatively low prices. Breakfast is also provided (bread margarine and jams). Not in the city square (that means many cheap local stores nearby) but it takes just 7 minutes to get there. Highly recommended!
Many beds in the dorms. Good location. Hostel owner watched TV and talked very loud at night, which was very disturbing. Breakfast is very little and not enough for all visitors. Plus: Very very cheap! They offer different daytrips, but doing them on your own will be much cheaper!
great hostel! staff were really helpful suggesting stuff to do everyday. was gonna stay for 2 days and ended staying for a week
