The idea of writing this review came to me as I was lying wide awake at 4 AM in the noisiest, filthiest place I've ever slept in. Hopefully someone will read it and stay away, for even though this place is cheap, it is not cheap enough. Here are some of the things me and my group of friends have...

I actually stayed in this hostel 3,5 years ago for one night. I came to Sibiu without an accommodation and luckily found a bed here after wandering around the town searching for budget accommodation. The hostel itself is nothing great but the staff and the owner made the place more interesting especially because people make my travels awesome, not so...

I want to preface this by saying that I've stayed at many, many hostels in my life - from Laos to India, and this was worst experience of my life. Neither am I hard to please. Staying here was marginally better than being homeless. First of all, I booked (and paid for) a bunk in a ROOM, not a hallway...

Kind of like sleeping in an Ikea. Simple rooms with semi-worn mattresses... but... it's a hostel. The price was right, the bathrooms were clean, and I felt like my belongings were fairly safe. If I visit again and travel with enough people to get the private room, I'll probably stay here again. If I travel solo, it's probably more economic...

If you want a cheap place to stay a night, then its good. It also has a bar downstairs worth visiting. There's an ATM, shop and everything you need nearby. The wifi though didn't work on our phones. For tablets, it worked fine. Be careful with the beds as the planks tend to fall. And try avoiding sleeping on the...

The staff is very helpful and friendly (please follow the recommendations of Silviu for Restaurants and Bars) and it is located just on the centre of Sibiu in a very historic building. It is extremely clean as well.

I've spent 5 days in the Old Town Hostel and would have loved to stay longer. It's a perfect hostel. They have comfortable beds, a kitchen where you can meet the other guests and cook together, the staff is the most lovely one I've met so far and it's right in the center of Sibiu. Don't expect a hotel of...

Hostel was in bad shape. Kitchen was the common room aswell, with no possibilities beside an incomplete card game and the board game risk, that probably made the whole atmosphere not as good as we had expected. Kitchen was doable. Location is good.

A very conveniently located hostel, located right in the heart of medieval Sibiu. Close to everything, nice kitchen, spacious rooms, clean bathroom. Staff is very friendly and accommodating, they will recommend nice places to visit, eat and drink. Overall, a great experience in Transylvania.

This is a review of one of the two apartments Old Town Hostel operates in Schiller Square, not a review of the hostel itself. The apartment is a very Spartan place and it is overpriced for the facilities provided. The kitchen did not have adequate dishes or pots, the microwave did not work, there were no towels for drying dishes...
