This hostel is in a quirky old house with lively rooms and a great restaurant on the ground floor. In the centre of the old town, it's perfectly located to explore the area. It's just 15 minutes from the railway station and bus station. The hosts speak German, but English too.

Owners are just great, at first they want to help, money are less important. It was a pleasure to use their services. I recommend their's food - really good and cheap. Furthermore - great localization.

I was quite dissapointed by my visit. On the phone people told us one room for one person is 80 Lei, in the end we paid 90 plus breakfast. Not much in Euro eventually, but I prefer the right amount. In my room the shower was leaking as well (just as other people here have mentioned before), water on the...

Our double bed room was located in the "Casa Legenda". It is a small room, with two beds put together (not a double bed!), with small shower and a tv which was not functionable but we didn't care. Everything was very basic but clean. The staff was very nice and friendly. Average hostel, for reasonable price.

The hostel is well located in the old town, but, no improvements and no renovation has not be done for ages. Just simple things, such as stains in the walls could be removed by a sponge and water. The towels were very old and the water in the shower drink and came out on the floor. A real nightmare for...

I saw one thing online and a totally different one on site. The room I booked looked like a fairytale on booking.com and I ended up staying in a Cinderella suite. Room was stuffy, bathroom door didn't close. Bed sheets were clean, there was heating and hot water. Wifi didn't work either. Being on the ground floor all the smell...

Bad things first - I reserved a certain room, with a certain arrangement of beds, didn't get it, although I double checked my reservations, romance gone. The bright side: it is cheap, it's in the middle of friggin' Sighisoara, the blankets are warm, the beds are comfortable, and the water (although it took around 10minutes to get to this point)...

The hostel looks very nice from the outside and is situated right in the very center of beautiful Sighisoara, but there are are not much other positive things to say about this hostel... The infrastructure is rather poor and the staff was not especially friendly and definitely not helpful at all. They said I could use the printer but there...

I've stayed in better hostels but that's not to say that this one was bad. The only downsides were that it's not a sociable hostel and the staff could have been more friendly. The dorm was great. I enjoyed the food served in the restaurant, it's really cheap! Brilliant location.

Visited Sighisoara in July 2015 and tried to find somewhere nice to eat (slightly away from the hussle and bustle of the main square). Burg restaurant looked promising with lovely medieval looking wooden tables outside. We sat and ordered our meals and wine. First of all, after ordering the chef rudely refused to accommodate a slight change in one of...
