21 July 2013 Yan Yu would recommend this property

Liked: Very budget hostel. It costs only 9 euro per night but u get everything u want: free breakfast, free drinks everyday. They organized unguided tour to the three main castles around brasov everyday, and this really great if u were in a tight schedule. They wash the pillow covers, bed linen, and towels everyday. The staff are generally helpful and friendly.

Disliked: The female bathroom is quite insecure. They don't have locks and it is easy for the guys to come in. they put strong perfume in rooms and personally I didn't like the smell. It takes 10-15 mins to the old town.

Liked: nice communal spaces. nice staff.

Disliked: they say they offer laundry - but it is space avialabilty after sheets and towels, and may take 2 days - and they do not have a dryer - so it depends on the weather.

Liked: I really enjoyed my stay here. The facilities are nice and clean, plus the staff members are very friendly and helpful. I also liked the location. It's about a ten or fifteen minute walk to the "center" of town but in a quieter area close to everything you need! If I ever go to Brasov again I'd love to stay here :)

Liked: I can't fault the place. The staff were friendly and helpful, location was perfect, security was excellent and you can't beat free beer. We had a twin room with shared bathroom yet the spacious clean bathroom was right outside our door and the dorm near us was encouraged to use the other bathrooms. The staff helped us out with patience and politeness. All round great experience

Disliked: Can't fault it

Liked: I liked the location of the hostel and they offer a free drink every night. I liked the fact that I didnt have to pay extra for simple things such as using computers, towels etc.

Disliked: The staff aren't the friendliest people on earth compared to other hostels I've stayed in. The beds are very hard and uncomfortable and it's was freezing in my room.

Liked: A wonderful hostel! 1. The staff really care about your stay. Ana gives the best orientation of the town using the free map, Alina can handle ANY annoying middle of the night or last minute requests and Gabriella, the brilliant owner is a freaky genius in multi tasking. They fixed all my problems, no matter how banal. 2. The facilities are second to none. Clean, well heated bathrooms, lovely light and spacious dorms, beautiful common areas with heaps of dvds, board games etc. Big, clean and well serviced kitchen. Heaps of character and I'll say it again, well heated. 3. Totally unecessary but lovely bonuses such as 500mL of beer per day free (Napoleonic navy rations?), free towel, decent breakfast, 4th night free, really cheap tour of the castles - brilliant and totally above even the highest expectations I had for hostel service provision. 4. Because the institution is amazing, heaps of people stay here in late November (rare it seems for Romania) thrrefore the hostel is great fun! Stay here, this is not only the best hostel in Romania, but also, I believe the best in the world.

Disliked: I had to leave.
