No lockers for valuables, asked for map of town but just told "no" - not told available at Tourist information. Kitchen inadequately kitted out - no glasses for example. No conventional oven + no instructions how to operate stove (modernistic one). No free tea/coffee. Staff not welcoming when checked in - I thought they were guests for seemingly ignored me when I arrived with my stuff! Restaurant closed over the weekend (only open during the week) which I don't understand as people like to eat/relax at weekends. Location good, however, in the citadel. One gets the impression that as the only real budgetbudget place/hostel available they are taking advantage of the fact. Hostel needs a good shake-up. Wouldn't recommend hostel and would recommend seeing Sighosara as a day trip if possible for not a huge amount to see + tourist trap with regard to restaurants/accomodation. Was here 15 years ago and has become tourist trap!!

Schlecht ausgestattete Küche, nicht einladende Aufenthaltsräume, Frühstück sehr mager für den Preis - was von anderen aufgegessen wurde, wurde nicht mehr aufgefüllt. Meine private Wäsche, die ich zum Waschen abgegeben hatte, ist verfärbt wieder bei mir angekommen. Die Schränke auf den Zimmern sind nicht abschließbar bzw. der Gast erhält keinen Schlüssel. Insgesamt leider ein seh schlechtes Hostelerlebnis.

Getting to us

Getting to us

The closest international airports are in Tirgu Mures (50km), Sibiu (100 km), Cluj-Napoca (170 km) and Bucharest (270 km).
Over the last years, the buses / minibuses have routes between the most important cities of Romania. Often, they are faster than the trains, for example, when you want to travel from Sibiu or Targu Mures
Alternate Transport
Sighisoara is located directly on the E 60, which runs from Amsterdam to Constanta. Unfortunately, this important road cuts directly through the town. Since our hostel is located in the middle of the medieval fortress, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, we request that you please park your car in the Lower City. We are actively lobbying to have the fortress be declared a pedestrians-only zone.
The main railway Vienna -Bucharest passes through Sighisoara Railway Station, due to this you can arrive easily by train in Sighisoara. Once arrived at the railway station, you will notice the citadel. The Burg Hostel is 20 m far from the Citadel's Square, towards the Catholic Church. If you choose the taxi, it will cost you around 7,00 Lei.
