*Our goal* to promote active travel & ecotourism in Romania :

Founded in 2001 we are the first and best hostel in Brasov. Co-owned and run by a Korean-American and a local Romanian. We understand travelers' needs because we are backpackers.

Kismet is actually an English word meaning fate, adopted from Arabic. Dao (or Tao) means The Way. Daoism is an ancient Chinese philosophy. The basic eternal principle of the universe that transcends reality and is the source of being, non-being, and change is the Dao. Put the two together and you have Kismet Dao, the Way of Fate.

Str. Neagoe Basarab #8
Brasov, 500002 Romania

By Bus:
Take bus #51 from the train station to the 4th stop or bus #4 to the 5th stop. As you get off the bus go left and cross the street at the traffic lights and follow the Agriselor street all the way to the end. Cross the street again and follow the street going uphill. You will then see the hostel on the right hand side. 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. 15-20 RON.

By Foot:
A walk in good weather from the train station to the hostel takes about 25 minutes (~1.5 km distance).

Located Near

As of February 2011, the Kismet Dao Hostel moved to a new location on Neagoe Basarab street #8.
Our new dead-center location in the Old Town means we are conveniently close to everything by foot:
� 5 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 supermarket 'Star' and the central post office.
