Martisor - 1st of March

Mărţişor is the symbol of spring and also a celebration on the first of March. Its beginnings are still a mystery, but it is usually said that it originated in ancient Rome, because New Year's Eve was celebrated on the 1st of March (Martius), the month of the war god Mars. He had a double role: both protector of agriculture and of war, so the celebration signified the rebirth of nature. The duality of symbols is kept in the colours of the Mărţişor: white and red, meaning peace and war (it might also symbolize winter and spring).

Our 1st Mulled Wine Night

Last night, The 1st Mulled Wine Night, was a success! Lots of people, friends and backpackers gathered in the kitchen around 8 pm, waiting for some sweet hot wine from Fiona who offered to prepare it... Thank you for that Fiona, you are now the Princess of the Hot Wine! :D

Happy New Location!

1 year...1 year since we reopened this hostel in our new location,with a fresh look and attitude towards providing quality service to you,our customers and friends..

It's been hard,but more than that it was good fun ...having everybody involved:our staff,friends,tourists,owner..everybody gave a hand in this moving process..it made us forget about the exhaustion that installed in our bodies at some point,and it actually made us more enthusiastic about the new great place that we have to remake.
