This hostel is well situated either for skiing or for visiting the city (which was our case). The team is welcoming you warmly and giving you precious advices. Those are concerning restaurants, wlaks you can do, guided tour oof the old center of Brasov and they even propose a trip to Bran Castle. The hostel himself is clean with three... More

We stayed 2 nights in this hostel. The atmosphere was very friendly, rooms are clean, the staff is astonishingly friendly. There is always hot water, and the rooms are heated regularly. Better than some hotels I've been to. One of the nicest accommodation places you'll ever stay in.

This hostel was a slam dunk! The staff were great, the place was new and clean, and the dorm I was staying in was very roomy. Really, this hostel was great. The location is less than 5 minutes from the centre and about a 15 minute walk from the cable car that goes up the mountain. I wholly recommend this... More

In October I went to this hostel with some friends of mine while visiting Transilvania. Autumn is the pefect period to visit the region and I think Brasov is one of the best cities. I think there is not a better hostel in town. You get the chance to choose the dormitory or single/double rooms. The rooms and beds are... More

The place was very nice, friendly people, clean room and bathroom. Overall, i will go there for a second time. Also the location of the hostel is a plus, but there is no parking available, at least when i asked for it.

I stayed there 3 nights in January, unfortunately I was unlucky - the heating system was working very poorly, I left the place with a terrible cold. I stayed in a private twin room, the room itself was clean, however a common bathroom was just a nightmare. The staff is friendly, however not very helpful, unable to give the correct... More

We stayed in Kismet Dao for 2 nights. Although it was freezing outside (-3°C, for a person used to living in a tropical country it was cold!!), the atmosphere inside Kismet Dao was very warm!! :) The people there (Paul, Gabriella and Bianca)were very accomodating and helpful. Even their dog Zara was very friendly and sweet. The hostel facilities suited... More

I stayed here for about four nights over halloween which was awesome. The atmosphere was fun and relaxed, you get a free drink for every night you stay. There's a common room downstairs where you can watch films (hostel). The only negative was that the staff really could have been a little more willing to help. I asked about tours... More

The hostel is good, not amazing. And was lacking a certain warmth to the place. Location is a little out of town. Very clean in all areas. Bed was reasonable (in the dormitory). Breakfast included cereals and coffee which was great in the morning.
