We had a wonderful time at this hostel. Stayed 4 nights. Everything was great. Decent breakfast. The dog, Zara, was awesome. Took her for a walk and got an extra free beer :). Good atmosphere as well with all the free drinks ;). Great location and clean facilities, a very comfortable stay.

The hostel is well located being about 15 minute walk to the city centre. The dorms are quite large and there appear to be adequate number of showers/toilets, the majority of which are located down stairs. Staff are extremely knowledgeable & helpful when it comes to providing information on how to get to surrounding areas of interest by public transport....

Great hostel for a fair price about 15 minutes walk from Brasov center. Free parking, breakfast (eggs, milk, jam, musli, bread etc) and one free drink every day. The staff is super helpful and can answer any question you might have.

Decent hostel. I have found several things to improve. This is located in a quiet area. But, it's quite noisy during the late night. I think staffs should take more attention on it. - Our room was spacious. And there was a little table with chairs in the room. We could relax there doing something. By the way, there's no...

I was lucky to be able to get a room here, as a big group had just left. Usually this hostel is fully booked in summer. After having stayed in Kismet Dao it has become the reference when sleeping in other hostels. Sweet helpful staff, good location, a grumpy hostel dog (whom you are not allowed to feed) and an...

In short. Great staff. Very helpful answering all our sometimes Very stupid questions. Cheapest in the area. Near the center. The reception guy even helped us with car renting. If I will ever visit Brasov again, this hostel is number one option.
