Wonderful location, great staff that doesn't hesitate to shut noisy guests up. Majda and Bata are both great people and I wish them nothing but the best!
Location-wise it is a bit out of the way, and it has a lot of potential, but it needs a lot of work before it can become a presentable hostel. The gate is made of cast iron with metal grills above it, and ''hostel Shokdra backpackers'' is written in bright red paint - it is pretty ominous. Also needs to be cleaned and better lit a bit more, as well as some decorations. If you don't know the way it can be quite hard to find it, and the directions provided are lacking - I needed to ask like 10 ppl
Hostel staff were extremely friendly! I would recommend this hostel to anyone staying in Cluj.
Padre was really friendly. Hostel is a little out of the way, but not too much. Good for a nice quiet stay.
The hostel staff were very friendly and helpful when I had many questions. The lady in charge even let me have some cake! I was very happy :)
Needs major improvements on cleanliness, my room smelt like stale cheese. But I guess you get what you pay for.
I had a good time because the hostel was underbooked, but I do imagine that there will on occasion not be enough bathrooms for use.
Perfect! They provide lockers and towels, staff were friendly and location was good and not hard to find at all. nothing to complain about!
We had no overhead lights in our room and had to make do with a lamp. But the staff was very friendly about it so we didn't mind that much.
It was very clean, staff was friendly. A little expensive, but that's Switzerland for you. Kitchen is slightly understocked.
