This hostel was the nicest place I've stayed in Europe so far. Expect beautiful mountain views, organised tours, and plenty of time to relax and take in the beautiful Transylvanian landscape. The place is within driving distance of key attractions like Bran Castle and Zarnesti Bear Sanctuary. The owner of the hostel is very knowledgable about Transylvania and Romania, and provides great insight to your travels. Definitely stay here!
Great hostel, great location and Joseph and his family made us feel very welcome. He organised trips to the bear sanctuary, Bran castle and transfers to and from the hostel to Brasov. We stayed just before Christmas and there was plenty of snow! If you are interested in staying somewhere peaceful and full of nature, this is the place! It was a really enjoyable stay, and a nice break from seeing the main cities. We look forward to returning in the late spring.
What a place to stay. Stunning views, staff great. A total chill out place not much else. Road is bad getting up to hostel. Very worried with hire car. Don't bother asking for direction if u get lost. Was sent everywhere by locals. Just drive through bran carrying on going and u find 2 shops 1 on either side if the road at a folk junction and it's just 30 metres passed there on the right. But just make u have directions before u get there. 1 gear then for about 15 mins.
This place is a fantastic getaway from the noise and chaos of traveling in cities. Great hiking, beautiful views. It is a family run place and they're an all around great and helpful group.
Fantastically located in beautiful countryside the hostel has a really rustic feel which suits it's surroundings. Joseph and his family were very friendly and made us feel very welcome, he kindly picked us up from Brasov station and I'm glad we took him up on his offer! Trails in the area were well marked and great for hiking. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come and stay here again!
Joseph and Maria are the best hosts we've ever had. Waking up in the morning to the sound of silence (and the rooster / cows) and enjoying the absolutely quiet landscape was one of our favorite moments on the whole vacation. Super hiking in the area, close to Bran, Brasov and Peles. Check you e-mails before you arrive, you will receive directions.
