As soon as I came through the hostels doors, I felt very welcomed. I was tired from such a long journey from Australia and to have staff that were so friendly they got me situated to my room right away, asked me if I needed any water and gave me a free drink from the fridge filled with an assortment...

This hostel is great. The workers at the hostel were extremely nice and helpful. Plus you even get a free drink for every day that you stay! I went on the three castle tour and had a great time. The only downside I can think of is that it's doesn't have the best location but it's only like 10 minutes...

I spent couple of nights in Kismet Dao and it's a great hostel. All the staff are super nice and Zara the dog is a legend 😊 rooms are spacious, location is good and the welcome drink is also a plus.

Staff are friendly and the location was perfect. Quieter section of town, yet close enough to everything. They have a nice little garden and also a social area down stairs which is a good place to relax after wandering about and hiking. Also, they give you a free drink when you come in which was very kind.

I stayed there for a night before I flew home. The staff were friendly and helpful and they even helped out to carry my big baggage. I enjoyed to cook my simple vegetable meal and have the free, good breakfast at the kitchen with the other travelers.

Kismet Dao is perfect for travelling alone as you feel at home there as soon as you enter the door! Staff are super friendly, share their experience and knowledge with you and help or advise you wherever they can! Everything is clean, the dorm rooms are spacious and bright and you have a big locker right next to your bed....

Awesome location, right next to the old town. The staff we're great (especially Sebastian and Livia) they gave us the best recommendations on what to do with our time, where to go, what to eat, buses and trains etc and even gave us some Europe power adapters as we didn't have any. Free beer every night too!!!
