Location & Directions

As of November 2017, Kismet Dao Hostel has moved back to our original location in Old Town, Piata Unirii, Str. Democratiei 2B

Our central location in the Old Town means we are conveniently close to everything by foot:

  • 8 minutes to Republicii street (where virtually everything happens),
  • 7 minutes to Piata Sfatului (the main square) and the Black Church,
  • 2 minutes to all the conveniences such as markets and the post office.

Directions

By Bus:

Each ticket costs 2 lei which you buy from a kiosk. Make sure you validate your ticket on board because the ticket officials will fine you if your ticket is not stamped. Take Bus 51 to Piata Unirii-- 8 stops. When you get off the bus, Piata Unirii (the square) is directly in front of you. Cross Piata Unirii to get to the other side. With the church to your left and Piata Unirii to your back, take Str. Coastei and then take a right uphill on Str. Democratiei. The walk takes about 5 minutes.

By Taxi:

It is better most times to take a taxi than a bus, as it is cheap and fast. A ride from the train station should cost about 4-5 Euros or approx. 30 RON. Use only taxis with company names on them (e.g. RO, ATI, MARTAX, TOD) and make sure they turn the meter on.
