Brasov is a nice, charming city in Romania located in the central part of the country in the Transylvania region. This city is well known for the fortified walls around some parts of the city, the medieval gate, the beautiful city centre, and a few churches -- don't miss the St. Nicholas Church and the black church, as it is a Gothic masterpiece. Try also to find the narrowest street in all Romania and cross it. You'll enjoy a lovely view of the city from the cable car that you can find in the top of the nearest mountain -- Tamara -- and you can also hike to the top of a mountain that has huge letters with the name of the city (Brasov) like the one Hollywood has. You'll get a good walk and nice views. During winter you can visit a famous ski resort nearby -- Poiana Brasov -- but you can expect it to be a little bit crowded. There is a direct coach from the city to the resort.
It's really easy for you to travel to Brasov, as there are some coaches, but the best way to arrive and depart is by taking the train -- it's not expensive and will take you almost anywhere in Romania or the neighboring countries.
Around Brasov you can find a lot of good sights worth a visit. Ask in the hostel if they know someone who can show you the surroundings for one day -- you can have a really nice day and keep your budget low. Don't forget to mention that you want to visit Bran Castle -- the lovers of Dracula can't miss it, and Rasnov fortress -- it's better than Prejmer fortress and good for you to spend some time exploring; Sinaia Palace is a little bit further, but is still recommended.
The hostels in Brasov are simple and basic. If you're arriving by bus, try to arrange a pick-up with your hostel in Brasov -- it's not really far, but at least twenty minutes' walking with a backpack.

Kismet Dao Hostel
"This hostel, also known as Elvis Hostel, is a bit more aged and worn than its competitor, the Rolling Stone Hostel. We stayed at both and can say what they lack in newness, they make up for in good atmosphere and lack of pushiness.

Brasov Travel Tips & Suggestions
Dracula's castle sucks. I was expecting something much more exciting, but in the end it's just a normal castle. Other than that, all is fine.
Brasov is a very nice city but if you are really an winter sports fan or even addict, you might wanna try Prahova Valley resorts such as Sinaia- with Peles Royal Castle and sports-oriented Predeal with a good sky-run and quad-bikes at your disposal. You can find a lot of people there with general english, french, spanish speaking skills. And beware of the vilas, lodges behind the main church- they don't provide reliable info on their actual accomodations. Try those near the sky run.
Brasov is just fantastic. A town with charm and much flair. The people are (like many Romanians) are very hospitable, nice and helpful. Explore Sinaia (Peles castle), Rasnov, the fortified churches of Prejmer and Harman. And if possible don't miss Sighisoara, the medieval town two hours from Brasov. It's great there. Or just stay in Brasov. I myself could stay there forever!
This is a city with many hidden charms. Stay longer than a few days if you properly want to get to know the place. There are certain bars frequented by English speakers in the city so stick to them if you want some company (Deanes and Maya are the main two). And don't forget to spend at least a day hiking in the hills around the city. Also, avoid Bran/Dracula's castle - it's very disappointing. Stick to Rasnov castle instead. Its closer and much more interesting.
