This was a very nice hostel close to the historical center of Brasov. We stayed in a privet room that was nice and clean. Staff was extremely helpful and we can recommend the three castle tour arranged by the hostel. The breakfast was very simple, just milk and cereal, but there was a small supermarket outside. All in all we're... More

It´s a nice hostel, right in the center of the city. We stayed there for 2 nights, in a 12 bed room. It was crowded and loud, but we didn´t care. Can´t expect for silence in a hostel. Breakfast was just cereal and milk. We got a snow storm, the city was beautiful...we almost couldn´t get to the castles, since... More

Was super impressed with this hostel. Was large, good security, friendly atmosphere, free beer, free breakfast, etc. We were staying in the tiny room (10 bed dorm) and all was good until we went to sleep. My partner got massacred by bed bugs...had to throw up a bunch of stuff and didn't receive any compensation or even an apology. I... More

Staff was limited, only one person on duty at a time. Nice touch of one free beer per day. The 2-bed private room was clean and comfortable and across from the shared bath. Amazingly, we did not hear others use the WC during the night. Fan was appreciated. The kitchen was adequate, but just that. Lights were dim, and shelves... More

We came here to stay only for a night but after 3 nights spent on Kismet Dao we all feel like we never wanted to go away. Great location. great people, great hostel. I still think of Kismet Dao and Brasov. The atmosphere was so great, the beds comfy and the rooms clean.

Originally was only supposed to stay here for 2 nights but loved it so much ended up staying for longer. Free drink for every night you stay there. Very friendly helpful staff who told us the best places to eat and drink in town, phoned taxis for us, organised trips for us and were around 24/7 to help. Sociable hostel... More

I stayed here for two nights. Staff is very helpful and friendly, even when they're visibly fatigued. You can use computers and there is room to socialize. Nice if you're a lone traveler. You can cook your own meals and they sell a bus ride along the castles of transylvania. As a European, castles are not that special anymore, but... More

Stayed for 2 nights, comfortable and clean, with a really great chilled out atmosphere, encouraged by the host's really welcoming attitude. Note: Showers are downstairs. Cereal for breakfast and unlimited coffee was excellent.
