Welcome in the wonderful medieval town of Sibiu, former cultural capitol of Europe 2007 in the heart of Romania!

Sibiu Travelers Hostel/Villa Teilor is situated in a quiet area of Sibiu only 6 minutes walk from the train & bus station and just another 9 minutes walk to the ancient center, with all the main tourist attractions.

The hostel was opened in 2008 and received a 2 star qualification from the Romanian Department of Tourism. The founder has a 20 years experience of providing housing to all kinds of groups, so you may expect great comfort and service.

The wishes & expectations of the hostel traveler were the main guidance in the design of the hostel, which resulted in our fair & no-nonsense approach: giving shelter in most comfortable, friendly way and making you feel welcome & at home, giving you a nice breakfast and providing you a lot of free services for a real low price!

By the way: teilor means lime, linden tree. Ever had a look on the Internet or in an encyclopedia what is said about housing in relation to linden tree?

Besides the fact Romanians use linden blossoms to make a healthy tea with relaxation & healing effects, the lime tree has a very positive meaning in general in history as a protective force against evil powers, but also as a romantic symbol in the love between the sexes! Also in literature and music it always had a prominent place.

The famous Romanian poet Mihai Eminescu wrote in his poem
Mai am un singur dor (One Wish Alone Have I):

Patrunza talangaWhile softly rings
Al serii rece vânt,The wind its trembling chime
Deasupra-mi teiul sfântAnd over me the lime
Sa-si scuture creanga.Its blossom flings.

translation: C.M.Popescu

The Moldavian music group
had the hit
Dragostea Din Tei
(Love From Linden Trees)
