I would highly recommend this hostel, Not are the facilities excellent but also the breakfast which is included in the price along with the beautiful garden. I couldn't imagine staying at a better place in Cluj and the staff really make you feel special. I would definitely stay here again.

The hostel is perfectly located in the heart of Cluj. There are great facilities. The staff are awesome and go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable at the hostel. They also had good recommendations for activities/sights to do and see, as well as restaurants to visit. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

Thank you Transylvania Hostel for a wonderful experience! The owners, Iuliana and Brian, plus all the staff are genuine and welcoming people. You will feel like part of a family. I'm only sorry I couldn't stay longer as it is time for me to start making my way home. I will be back!

Centrally located, this non party hostel is a great place to stay for a couple of nights to explore Cluj. We had a twin room with a shared bathroom for the equivalent of £12 a night. The room was huge, with two double beds. It has a lovely courtyard, and a central kitchen, games room and living space. Breakfast is...

The moment you walk in to the building you feel captivated by the charm of the building. There is a lovely courtyard downstairs and a common room with a separate games room upstairs as well as a full kitchen too. Warm and welcoming team gives good advice about things to see and do around the city. Lovely touches of decor...

The place is probably the best hostel in Transylvania! The staff is always friendly and they make sure you feel like you're right at home. The location is central and readily accessible, free wi-fi, clean rooms and comfortable beds. If you're in town, this place is where you should be staying ;)

After a few roller coaster weeks this homey feeling hostel was a wonderful place to unwind, socialize and feel secure. The facilities were all there, with good bathrooms and a full kitchen, not like some hostels that claim a kitchen and have only a microwave. The property is interesting, with balcony and courtyard garden area. The highlight of this central...

Great hostel. Super friendly staff who made us very welcome. The hostel is in the perfect location for the old town part of Cluj. We had a double private room which was very big and very clean, excellent toilet facilities also. I would definitely use it again.
