There isn't much competition in Cluj for hostels, how ever this hostel is FANTASTIC by any standard. The staff are amazing and go to great effort to connect everyone together, take you out to local places, help you with anything. You will stay longer in Cluj than you expect due to this great Hostel. It's called "The Cluj Effect". Great town, made even better by this hostel.


Excellent hostel... one of the best i have ever stayed in. friendly, relaxed staff who provide high quality service in terms of accommodation, security, cleanliness and having a good time! And in a great city too! Wanted to stay longer and nearly did! As I've said I've travelled a lot before but definitely one of the best hostels - staff are sound and will go drinking with you whilst environment is relaxed and chilled out


Very friendly staff, very good location, excellent place.


Really good hostel! Location is in the middle of everything. Keycards for all dorm rooms means it is very secure (and you get personal lockers too). Staff are helpful, and take you out to a restaurant and the pub. It's cozy, clean (best hostel showers ever). Highly recommended.


I will recommend this hostel everywhere I come in Europa.


The staff were amazingly helpful, friendly, and good fun. The hostel itself is lovely. We had a great room, and the games room and courtyard are really nice touches.


Hostel staff were extremely friendly! I would recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Cluj.


Excellent hostel, I rarely give that rating. Great location, easy to find, welcoming, great breakfast (cereal) no fruit but that would ask too much. Security for everything, multiple staff there & always working for guests (train, bus, connections, suggestions). This is the only hostel in Romania where the staff work around the clock for hostelers needs. Travelers stay longer than planned here & fellow hostelers ask new hostelers to lunch, dinner or other activities. Comfortable beds.


Very comfortable hostel. Stayed here 3 nights and really wanted to stay more. They have great living room to relax in. Bathrooms are perfect. Wifi is the best I've had in Europe. Plus, they organized outings most nights. Definitely book here if you're traveling solo...or even if you're not.


A great place. Comfortable, clean and friendly. Location is superb.


Nice clean relaxed place with friendly and very helpful staff! Cool place to just hang out and do some casual sight seeing from.


Felt pretty insecure - anyone can walk into the open front door and into your dorm and do whatever they want. That said, the staff were quite welcoming and helpful when I arrived at 2:30AM. It did the job.


Perfectly located in the center to explore the city. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. They have a cool lounge with comfortable sofas to hang out with other travellers. They organise cool social events. Clean rooms and showers. 24h reception. One of the best hostels I've ever been to.

Great hostel, very central (only 2 minutes from the main place). The dorms are comfortable and spacious and they have also a nice common room and also a game room. The staff (Alin, Alina, Larissa, Andrea and Claudia) are very friendly and can also bring guests in the center. Definitely the place to stay in Cluj.


Great location, Great Staff would definitely go back if in town.


Nice big rooms, big lockers and comfortable beds. Quiet enough to get a good night's sleep.


very nice hostel right in the center. the staff is very helpful and friendly.


friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere


Really neat environment and wonderful staff! I love Romania!


I usually don't give 100% reviews but they seriously deserve it. I've stayed here three times and every single time they go out of there way for guest. From organizing trips to festivals (for free) to making sure you catch your train. The location and staff are by far the best in the city. I'm proud to have met them. You have to stay here.
