Since 2007 Retro Travel Agency offers day tours in Transylvania and package tours throughout the country, car rentals, free bike rental for our guest and much more...

We are located on a quite pedestrian lane, away from any traffic noise, two minutes walking from the main square of the city, and 500 meters from the 'Babes Bolyai' University, the second largest in the country. Open by enthusiastic travellers, Retro Youth Hostel, is nestled inside the medieval city wall, within a walk of main tourist attractions in town.

Very dirty. Sort of oil on the floor. Payment was done with my Credit card without my permission (had cash with me). No staff in the hostel after 2pm. Would definitely not recommend.

Had everything you'd need for a night or two, and was good value considering the other options in Cluj. The main issue was the unstaffed nature, which meant luggage storage was not as secure as I'd have liked (although no issues) and toilet paper ran out overnight and was not replaced until after midday.
