Very nice friendly staff. Free beer for each night stayed. What more can you want? Extra beers were around €1 each. Nice socialising areas, good facilities. Free breakfast with coffee. One morning pancakes were cooked. 24hr hostel supervision 👍

We were there in winter holidays, it was —8 in Brashov ❄️ This is how hostel should look like: 1. It's warm. In fact, Kishmet is the only warm hostel we stayed during this winter trip (in other places we were freezing all the time) 2. You can full yourself with breakfast, the kitchen is always clean, everything you want... More

I spent two nights in Brasov at this hostel. Given that it's mid-December it was pretty quiet. The atmosphere is really lovely. The hostel is very home-like, bright and cheery. The staff are welcoming and ready to give you touring advice or just to hang around and chat. Breakfast is included (cold cereal, coffee, and tea), and you get a... More

We've been to this hostel for only a night but would have liked to stay a bit longer. The staff is really really nice and helpful. They want you to feel like if you were at home. The cleanest hostel I've seen with a lot of showers, toilets available and always clean. From the city center, you have to walk... More

Hostel is located really close to the city center. Big, clean rooms. Great common room where you can sit and chill with your friends and other travellers. The stuff is really friendly and helpfull. If you want to spend nice time in Brasov - book your place at Kismet hostel.

I spent two nights in this hostel. The atmosphere was great. Staff is kind and helpful, they will give you a hand whenever you need it. There is a lounge downstairs where you can hang out, play cards, foosball, etc. Breakfast was included and it was ok, cereals, milk, coffee, tea. Also you have a free drink for each day... More

First, overall, the hostel itself is quite decent. Large kitchen and basement common area, and enough bathrooms and showers for everyone. About 7 minutes walking from the old town, so location was good too. With all the good out of the way, time to get to the bad. 1) While some of the staff members were pretty knowledgeable, one of...

I really liked it. Very very much. The room was clean, the staff friendly. Lots of clean showers in the basement to avoid queueing. There is a "party room" in the basement, so all partying guests do not disturb others to sleep. We met a lot of lovely backpackers there. Breakfast of coffee, milk and cereal included - was fine!...
