The couple who own the hostel (Angi and Titus) were both kind & knowledgeable and went out their way to make my stay enjoyable. Braşov is a interesting place to visit and Hostel Mara a...

The location is super central and the staff is extremely helpful. The beds are comfy and it is all clean. The atmosphere was great. The shower was tiny but I liked that each room had its own bathroom.

I find this place to be a great accomodation if you come for the weekend with friends for skiing or snowboarding. The host is very chatty and they help you with everything you need. It is warm, hot running water, kitchen and huge rooms. I highly recommend it!

I was at this hostel and was amazing! The owner couple (Angi and Titus) are very kind and always available to help you in any question or problem! The hostel is affordable, clean and had the better location in Brasov, just at the Piata Sfatului!

Although there wasn't much for Internet this place was a perfect stop. Our host was amazingly helpful and when she wasn't at the reception she gave us her personal number if we needed any help at all. I felt very safe and the hostel was very clean. There aren't any kitchen facilities but you are right in the heart of...

Overall the experience was ok, just few things like: The room had a weird smell. We never got internet password, even if we asked by sms (because she was not at the reception never) without success. The last day was Monday and we wanted to left our luggage for a while, but once again, impossible because nobody was there. But...

We went there with our bikes (being involved in a contest). Such abike-frienfly place there! The hosts were very welcoming and nice. They even showed us a map with the bike tracks in the area.
