I loved staying at the Kismet Dao

Period of stay: February 2012 | Length of stay: 3 days

I loved staying at the Kismet Dao. My friend and I stayed for part of our ski trip in Romania. We originally planned to stay for 1 night only, but we were so impressed with the accommodation and the warm welcome we received that we stayed for 3!

The staff were very friendly, the place was great value with breakfast and a free drink included for each night we stayed. We stayed in a twin room, the room was clean, spacious and very warm. Sleeping was no problem as there are social and shower rooms 2 floors below (in basement level), and there is a quiet policy after 10pm. Hot water all the time and the showers were great.

The location is great for Brasov and if you're planning to ski, there are buses from town.. or if you're driving there's free parking and it's easy to get to a variety of ski hills.

Overall, thank you for a comfortable and fun stay!

"How to be a superfly hostel (The List)" written by D

1. 24 hour reception for people who take the night train and arrive early in the morning … or late at night.

There is nothing worse than arriving to your hostel and finding you can’t even get in the front door until 9 or 10 a.m. That makes 4 a.m. arrivals miserable. And, there is nothing comfortable about sleeping on a front step of a hostel in a new city. For me, a hostel that doesn’t offer 24-hour reception is a deal-breaker. I am fine if I can’t get a bed right away, but at least let me in off the street so I can put my bag down and close my eyes in a safe environment.
