The Experience

We are a cozy hostel situated right in the center of Cluj-Napoca. We would need someone to help us maintain the friendly and social atmosphere in the hostel, while making sure everything is clean and shiny. In other words we would like to have someone outgoing and responsible that likes organizing small events, in the hostel or around the city, help us make some beds and do some cleaning. We are also open to suggestions for projects!

Volunteering there was one of the best experiences I ever had in my life!
The tasks are usually super easy: make the beds, take guests for dinner and drinks and help in some tasks when they need was my main job there. The only thing that was hard is that on Sundays there is no cleaning lady to help you so you have to work a lot. But the girls from the reception always help you.
When I left the hostel, I did not have friends there, but a family! The team there made my journey awesome every single day! I will miss you guys <3 btw, I will visit you again and I can't wait to see you in Brazil!

My experience at Transilvania Hostel was awesome. Hostel is very comfortable and very good, located just in the center of the beautiful city of Cluj Napoca.
Duties are not so hard and during the evening you can meet with guests for a palinka tasty and then we used to go to a delicious traditional romanian restaurant and after that hang out in a bar in the old town.
Host are very friendly and the staff are simple amazing and helpfull!
Thanks a lot all of you ladies and guys for made my experience more than unforgettable. For sure I'll be back.

Transylvania Hostel is an excellent volunteer opportunity that should not be missed. The hosts are perfect in every conceivable way; I will miss them immensely. You will be enthusiastically welcomed to the team, and uniquely challenged by an array of responsibilities ranging from housekeeping to entertaining guests. I have no reservations in stating that Transylvania Hostel is perfect for the Worldpacker and backpacker, alike. I guarantee that your expectations will be exceeded, and you’ll find yourself saying on the way out: “Wow! That was a heck of an experience that I’ll never forget!”
