Best place to stay in town for sure. Quite chilled atmosphere yet there is always someone about to go out and party in the town and the staff makes sure every one is included. It's a great place to base yourself in the best city in Romania.
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
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.
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.

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.

All the facilities are good and after 10pm everyone has to be quiet so you can sleep. It's NOT a place for hanging out talking/partying late at night, but the hostel makes group trips to town to eat and drink so that you meet your fellow travellers and go party. Very good for meting people. The staff is nice and helpful but for some reason I felt a little awkward at this place, their smiles can seem a bit fake (they're trying too hard) and somehow this awkwardness makes me not wanna come back.
Really nice building with nice big courtyard to chill and drink in. Free Romanian shots every evening followed by a member of the incredible staff taking us out to different Romanian restaurants, bars and clubs. Definite must stay!
Coming back again and again, some of the best staff you will meet. Beautiful city, and a free shot of palinka every night!
Very nice staff, they work together with a car rental service that brings the rental car to the hostel for free. People were encouraged to share the food they wouldn't eat during their stay with the others. You can take as much as you want from the 'free food shelf' as well. Everybody is willing to help, location of the hostel is really good. We had no AC but the room temperature was not too high even though it was really warm outside.
Helpful staff, great location and services

This has been one of the best hostels I've stayed at! The staff is friendly and organizes daily activities which makes it really easy to socialize with and get to know the other people staying at the hostel. This was my first time traveling throughout Europe alone and I had a blast as I was able to quickly make friends with other travelers and go out with them. The rooms and showers were considerably more spacious and clean than those at other hostels I've stayed at. I highly recommend it!!

One of the best hostels I've ever been to. You can't beat the location and the staff is just super friendly and helpful. It feels like coming home.
