The title says it all! We've stayed in many hostels, but this one is by far one of the best!Great atmosphere, awesome staff (so so helpful), good facilities and the castle tour is definitely worth doing (good value and hassle free)! It's not your ordinary accommodation, it's the type of place where you could easily end up staying longer than... More

I'm a well seasoned budget traveller who has stayed in Hostels worldwide from Sydney to Slovenia and this rates in my top 3 hostel experiences of all time! The location is equally convenient for exploring Brasov's nature as well as it's pubs and restaurants. There is a beautiful hostel dog (Zara) who I was allowed to walk and given a... More

I stayed at Kismet Dao Hostel with some friends while driving through Romania. Although we only had one night in Brasov, the staff were very helpful and honest in helping us arrange what highlights to see. It is within a 10 min walk to the main square and the Black Church, making it a great place to base yourself for... More

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
