The hostel is comfortable with lots of social areas and in very nice building and relaxing garden area. The beds are well made and comfortable even with my back injury and chronic pain. The location is central to old town and an easy walk from train station both in distance and navigation. The staff are all friendly and helpful even...

Due to the techno music event, we could only stay here for 1 night, but it was great in a twin room. A nice shot of the local spirit, and helpful info from the staff. I loved the guide around the hostel - please control your bodily functions, and in the morning, remember, the eggs are raw! The boss is...

There is really everything you can ask for: a good location in the city centre, a terrace overlooking a garden (you can use), a kitchen with free breakfast and a common room, spacious dorms. But you will really love Transylvania hostel for its adorable staff, who will take you out at night to a typical restaurant and trendy bars, not...

My husband and I booked one night in Cluj-Napoca purely to break up our journey from Timisoara to Suceava. As this was a necessity rather than a desire to visit the city, we wanted the cheapest option available just to bed down for a night. We stayed in a private double room in Transylvania Hostel and it was definitely a...

I booked two nights at this hostel because I was planning on spending my birthday here and then leaving. I ended up staying seven nights. While Cluj is a great city, the thing that kept me from leaving was the hostel. I was fortunate to be there at the same time as a few groups of people who were awesome...

I stayed for one night in a 8-bed room. I really appreciated that the room was clean and comfortable, the bathroom was always clean, even though many people were using it. I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and, the best part, the garden. Next time I have to stay a night in Cluj I"ll definitely go there.

I booked a 2-night stay in a 6-bed dorm, but wasn't informed that people staying in the adjoining dorm had to pass through my room. That really sucked because it meant that ALL NIGHT (until 4:30 a.m.), there were bedroom doors opening and closing and people passing in and out and my sleep was repeatedly disturbed. I feel that in...

If you look for the perfect hostel in Cluj, just go there. Perfect for partying, visiting the city, making new friends, having good time. The staff is super super cool and very helpful if you need anything.

Looking for accomodation in Cluj-Napoca I've found this one. And yes, it deserved to be my choice for one night! Cluj-Napoca has higher prices (comparing to other cities) but I got a great price of 12.50 euro for one bed in dormitories. Free breakfast, very central (just a few minutes far from many touristic attractions and some bars and clubs),...
