It did the job. Good social atmosphere.


This hostehostel is the best I have stayed. Facilities are really good but what makes the difference is the staff. They are all very friendly and they will take the guests every night to dinner and bars helping you to know all the nice nightlife at Cluj


Everyone is so awesome and helpful!


Great hostel. The staff will give you a free shot in the evenings and then take you out for somewhere to eat and a few drinks, this created a nice community atmosphere in the hostel which makes it a rare find. Staying here will make your time in Cluj a lot more memorable


I stayed here several nights and enjoyed it. Kitchen is roomy, internet is good, they have lockers and the staff spoke good English.


Security: The main door is always open, so basically everyone could step into the building:-( If you are coming by train be ready for some walking, cause the station is quite outside the center. Staff was friendly and helpful but not towering warm hearted. The staff is organizing every evening a little shot and brings you afterwards to a bar in town. Unfortunately the people around were not really party-people, so it didn't end in much fun.

Hi! The front door stays open during the day for the neighbors, but the hostel is on a different floor and each guest has a key to their room, a huge personal locker, security cameras in common areas, and a vigilant team on duty. The train station is 2km outside of the center with buses to bring you into town, and the hostel is 0km from the city center right in the heart of Cluj! We focus on building a community instead of partying hard, but we like to have fun too. All the best for your trip!


Great atmosphere! Perfect for solo travelers. The showers were the best!! Meeting every night for a shot and heading out to dinner/drinks is a great way to meet people. Thanks Transylvania Hostel!


The hostel was extremely central and I had a great time, the staff were very friendly and they try to organise different things to do each day.

It´s a nice hostel. It´s in the center and nice area. They were hospitable with us and help us to enjoy the city The hostel it´s located in a old building and it´s really lovely ;) If you travel by car, you could park easy in the area! we enjoy our time there!! And Cluj Napoca is city that you have to visit if you like the alternative art and life.
