Decent hostels have become widespread in recent years and you can expect to pay around 40–50 lei for a dorm bed. Cheaper hotels cost 80–130 lei for a basic en-suite double; breakfast is normally an extra 15–20 lei. In season (June–September) you may come across locals at train or bus stations offering private rooms (cazare la persoane particulare), particularly in the more touristy areas of Transylvania and the coastal resorts; expect to pay around 50 lei per person. Most campsites are fairly basic; you’ll pay around 30 lei per night for tent space. Outside national parks, officials will generally turn a blind eye if you are discreet about camping wild.
