Sibui, Romania: Reviews of the Best Hostels

Sibiu was the largest and wealthiest of the seven walled citadels built in the 12th century by German settlers known as Transylvanian Saxons. The riches amassed by its societies paid for the construction of both impressive buildings and the fortifications required to protect them. Sibiu's Old Town retains the grandeur of its earlier days when rich and powerful unions dominated regional trade. Like Sighisoara and Brasov, it has a distinctly Germanic feeling. Sibiu is a pedestrian-friendly city with two easily accessible levels: the Upper town, home to most of Sibiu's historic sights, and the Lower town, lined with colorful houses on cobblestone streets and bounded by imposing city walls and defense towers overlooking the river Cibin. Beyond its grand architecture, Sibiu has a good dose of bohemian flair. Houses with distinctive eyelid-shaped windows (imagine a benign 'Amityville Horror' House) watch a cast of artists and buskers bustling below them. Cafes and bars inhabit brick-walled cellars and luminously decorated attics. Sibiu's soul lies somewhere in between genteel coffee culture and unbridled creativity; go find it. Whatever draws your interest to this beautiful destination, there are plenty of options when it comes to budget friendly accommodations as a base for exploring.
