    The guy at reception is very kind and help you eith any you need. Good kitchen, I think is a new fresh hostel. Everything is so clean and amazing bed. Wifi and comune are perfect. Not really amazing atmosphere because it was not that many client. But you can find some other solo travel. Perfect position. Good price for brasov.

    Fantastic hostel. Everything is very new and was spotlessly clean. Comfortable beds with lockable storage underneath. Excellent location a short walk from everything. Friendly and helpful staff. Only dropped points for me due to lack of atmosphere however it was very quiet with not many people staying whilst I was there, could be better in busier periods. Good for a relaxing stay though.

    Great hostel! Beds are comfortable and have lockers, curtain, reading light, and outlet. Very clean and the rooms never feel overcrowded. It's a quiet hostel and I went during the low season so not too many people. Reception can be hard to get in touch with even during their designated hours. Owner was very helpful and was happy to hear suggestions for his place. Would definitely stay again.

    Handy location in the heart of the old town but not noisy, which I liked the most. Comfy beds and had the whole room on my own as it was not busy. The bedroom was warm which mattered a lot in this Brasovian cold winter.

    Great location, it is located in the heart of the old town. Kitchen and common area are nice and comfortable. Hostels seems to be quite new. Beds are comfortable and they have lights, curtains and socket.

    Great hostel - best location in Braşov. I was the only one there it being off season, but it was still good. Kitchen was not very well equipped but still fine. I didn’t even have to do my washing, I just gave it to the staff.

    Very quiet during November but it is off season. Beds are great. However the toilets did smell - it is a septic system. But fantastic location. Would recommend if you’re looking for something low key
