    Pretty dead in the off-season but the staff were all very kind and helpful. Free breakfast was very good! Location is fabulous, right in the old town. Rooms are secured by one key, so you must trust in your roommates

    The hostel is really nice, very well located, good breakfast and nice staff. The only problem was that WIFI was not working most of the time and the mattresses were old and curved. Besides that,its a very cozy and nice place

    Staff are very friendly and fairly helpful (if a little vague at times), the rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are lovely (but needed a bit of a clean). However, the beds were very hard and the ‘free bike rental’ was unavailable for my friend and I as only 1 bike was not broken. Also there was lots of noise just outside the hostel for most of the night.

    Very Good

    It's an okay hostel. It's affortable but it's romania and it is normal to pay less than the western European countries. The beds are not confortable and make noise everytime you move. There's a dog owned by a neighbor who starts barking very early in the morning (non stop). The toilets are ridiculously small, I could barely sit. Security is questionnable since you can get into the hostel and rooms without any keycard or code. Staff is nice. Breakfast included is appreciated. Nice showers.

    Showers weren’t clean and were terrible to use. Frequently out of toilet paper. When I did not have the exact money to pay for my stay I was told to go to the shop and buy something. It was not even possible for me to give them a larger amount and then swap it for the right amount later. The breakfast was a pre-made petrol station sandwhich, some very wrinkly apples and stale cereal.

    There were holes in the sheets, the staff were unhelpful as they had ‘more important things to do’, there was only 1 toilet on each floor for each sex which isn’t ideal and there was no loo roll in them, the social area downstairs is very musty and so not really used which makes it less sociable, if having breakfast go for the doughnuts. Was really surprised and disappointed as there were so many good reviews, the location is good though
