Stayed there during 2 nights while visiting Brasov. The hostel is next to the small alley where you can park your car for free (but there are no many places). The staff is very nice and helpful, they will explain to every useful and recommended activities to do to enjoy your stay in Brasov. I paid 50 Lei / Bed... More

Excellent hostel in a great area, the staff are great, very nice rooms (even the shared ones) and the bathrooms are more than expected from hostels. The staff are happy to advice you on where to go, without forcing you to do any tours and they were all lovely people. It's a little walk from the main town, few minutes... More

Stayed here for 3 nights, 2/3 staff members I met were the loveliest people- so polite and welcoming and give it a family like atmosphere. The other lady was just as helpful just didn't seem to have the same buzz. Situated closest to a supermarket, organise great day tours, will do anything for you basically. Showers were hot with pressure,... More

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
