Lonely Planet review
Friendly Cobwobs sits down a grassy lane in a pleasant house whose garden is so crowded with apple and plum trees, rioting flowers and talkative chickens that you may forget you're in town. Owner Lia is charm itself and a great source of local info (handy given there's no tourist office any more).
Doubles and family rooms are homely and large, with shared showers and bathrooms. There are also two dorms. Outside are tables to read at and bikes for rent.
Our independent authors have visited Cobwobs Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Sighetu Marmaţiei.

Description provided by property
The hostel is set in a large garden in the center of Sighet about half a kilometer from the town center and one kilometer from the bus and train station. It has three dorm rooms and one double room and can accomodate up to 16 people in very comfortable and spacious accommodation.
There is also a kitchen people can use to prepare their own food or where we can provide breakfast and dinner on request. Most of the food we provide is based around local cuisine and comes from our own garden or the local market.
We have four shower rooms and four toilets plus a left luggage and amenities room. Within easy walking distance of the hostel are several local restraunts, clubs and bars which you will
find very hospitable.
We have a reception open up to ten at night, an hour after the last train arrives in Sighetul which gives people a chance to reach us before we close. If you arrive after this you can always ring the bell and we will of course let you in
This year we are runing trips to a local farm house about five klm out into the most beautiful area near Sighet above the village of Iappa. During the afternoon you can go walking in the hills help the local farmers or maybe go mushroom picking. In the evening we will cook over an open fire, listen to traditional music and if you get lucky local farmers will come and join us and teach you how to dance. Also we will on request run trips across the boarder by bike to the Ukrainian mud baths/spa. Its an intresting way to relax and watch the Ukrainians having fun.
