I was only there for 1 night with some friends, but the staff was friendly and welcomed us even though we arrived late. I picked the hostel based on the fact that it was 5mins walk from a rock concert we were going to see, and therefore we were also gone most of the night. When we came back past... More

Awesome awesome crowd of people :) we had so much fun, the rooks were clean and safe... I stayed in the Spring two bedroom and it was so nice and soothing after a night of crazy partying in this awesome city. But what I love most about it are the people working there, that are really friendly, helpful, and even... More

Although I only stayed here for one night, i had the most fantastic time. I arrived late on a Saturday, though just in time for the staff to tell me about the free walking tour. The hostel attracted a great, friendly bunch of people. The hostel had the facilities to allow you to spend your evening supping beer and chatting,... More

We loved our stay at Kismet Dao, as soon as we got there we were welcomed enthusiastically by the staff. They gave us a massive run down on things to do and what we had available at the hostel and as a lovely bonus we were upgraded to a different dorm for no extra cost as someone had extended their...

AMAZING. Super clean, really friendly staff, great location, a free drink a day (beer or coke or whatever), lots of space to find a little peace and quiet, fully equipped kitchen, posters with Buddhist sayings and thoughtful poems throughout the hostel, and the best cereal selection for breakfast that we've seen yet.

Probably the best price/value option in Brasov. It's got clean bed rooms and shower rooms. One free beer/drink for every night you stay; coffee, milk and various types of cereals available for breakfast and they are also free. Of course, there is a kitchen in which you may prepare your own food. Also free are Wifi connection and access to... More

The hostel offers free breakfast (cereal) and has a large kitchen and living room. You also get a free beer/soft drink every day. There are loads of showers and toilets spread around the hostel. Our room was really nice, the only problem is trying to sleep when there are 12 of you in one room - probably our fault for... More

Cristina and Cheeez really made me feel at home at this hostel. One of the best stays of my 3-months in Europe. Crisp mountain air, incredibly clean bathroom/facilities, nice kitchen, quiet bedrooms, only a few minute walk to the main tourist district. The staff is amazing and really go out of their way. I would 110% stay here again.
