Lonely Planet review
In a 450-year-old building with three dorms and two private rooms (one with en suite), Old Town has sublime square views. It also has decidedly plush touches like parquet floors, fresh white walls, choice artwork, TV in dorms and considerately spaced beds (the antithesis of battery-hen mentality). It's a nice vibe too, from the communal kitchen room to the lounge.
Our independent authors have visited The Old Town Hostel and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Sibiu.
