Friendly and helpful staff(including Zara, the hostel dog :) ), good atmosphere and decoration. Our room was tidy and comfortable, there was only one toilet per floor, but several downstairs. Welcome drinks were very nice, however the breakfast was quite poor, just cereals and coffee. About 10mins walk from the city centre, excellent value for money.

This is one of the best hostels which I have stayed so far and it is well-worth your money. I find it unbelievable when I was told that I can have free breakfast, free drinks and free towel. Room is large and clean. There are places for you to relax and chill out. Staffs are also warm and helpful. I...

Very nice hostel, with free drinks every day. Hostel was very clean. The garden was a good place to chill out in and escape the heat. Breakfast was not impressive but there is a supermarket around the corner. The location is good, close to the old town.

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...

This hostel is the best! It is close to everything but still maintains a level of peace and quiet. The staff are amazing and actually will go out of their way to help you.

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.
