"Way of Fate"

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”.

We have moved!

After a lot of planning, physical and mental work, we have moved the hostel to a new location!

It took a lot of time and resources but with the help of every employee and friends of the hostel, we managed to move our whole establishment to a brand new place.

We now have a 3 level hostel with 5 dorms and a private room, most having balconies, a fully equiped kitchen, an entertainment and work room and all the delicious FREE stuff our guests are already accustomed with :

  • 2 minutes to all the conveniences such as markets and the post office.
