got a dorm that was like a passageway to a 10 bed dorm and an 8 bed dorm I think.. Three connecting doors - one from reception and the others into the 10 bed dorm and 8 bed dorm. Was just impossible to sleep - doors banging all night as people passed through. Plus all lockers were in my space. ( a dorm with 4 beds!!!!!!!!)
Kitchen had 1 element working on the stove. Not easy to cook anything unless it was a one pot dish ( spaghetti with no sauce!!!!!) And at 50 lei ( 12 euro) was not value

At one of the mountain peaks, before the road begins its zigging and zagging back down the other side, is Balea Lake. We parked the car and took a quick walk around this pretty glacier ...
... Sorin's was an even better alternative, even without needing to reverse the Gypsy's curse. However, staying another night at Sorin's became an absolute necessity once we refused the Gypsy's request for money when we strolled one of Sibiu's quiet back streets.
Not understanding whatever the Gypsy's language was, it was obvious that he was cursing us, angrily muttering unintelligible words. ...
... most of which didn’t work any longer. However the normal shower WAS good. The bathroom was immaculately clean, but unfortunately there was a bad smell coming from the drain in the bathroom. Murray tried various things including covering the floor vent with wet paper, and making sure all the traps were full of water, but thinks it must be coming from a gap under the whizz bang shower, which was the only thing he couldn’t check out (he’s an ...
