A very quiet place to sleep, with amazing staff who help you with anything you need even if it is the middle of the night. A lot of spaces for relaxation and playing, super fast internet, a huge garden and a lot of sunlight. Breakfast is included and it is all carefully picked and includes fresh fruits from the region. This place is on my top list and I would recommend anyone to give it a try, the money you pay are more than worth their value here.

We stayed an extra day. Highly recommended.
We really liked this place. The lady who ran the place was very nice! Perfect English, very helpful and made homemade jelly for breakfast. The place was very clean and big. Showers were nice. The dorms were big enough and the beds were comfy. There was also big windows so it didn't have that dorm smell that you sometimes get. Big living room with TV and I think a playstation or x-box. There was also another smaller room to hang out in. The kitchen was nice and had an oven that worked and a big table. Free normal hostel breakfast with toast, muslix and cornflakes. Free coffee and tea all day. Lots of places to plug in your phone. There was a huge garden out back with two old tubs as "Pools". It was 39 degrees (almost 100 F) so it was a great idea. Also a big patio area with bean bags to hang out in. There was a friendly dog that was rescued from the street. We stayed an extra day because we liked the place so much. Would have stayed longer but we were short on time. The only thing I would suggest is a like three or four fans for each dorm room instead of one. It was really hot and one fan wasn't enough. Pick a bottom bunk if you can so the fan will get to you. Top bunks were really hot. Again it was almost 100 degrees F so no matter what, it was going to be hot. Not a whole lot you can do about it. It is probably not comfortably walkable from the train station but tram 1 will get you there. Then it is like a five/ten minute walk. If you arrive at 11PM as my train did, the trams may still be running but there is no where to buy a ticket. Not sure if the tickets from other Romanian towns work but you may want to bring one so you can at least take the tram. Then play ignorant if they are incorrect. They looked like all the other towns' tickets so I assume they would work. The tram is to the right as you walk out of the station. You would stand on the side looking at the station. Otherwise it is a 20 Lei taxi ride. Don't take a taxi right in front of the station. Walk across the street to the actual taxi stand. Beware of pickpockets as a girl we met had someone hand's in her purse while talking to the taxi driver.
