Barry's review

Kismet Dao is the perfect hostel. The owner-manager and her staff are helpful, friendly and very efficient. Everything is done just right, from breakfast to beer:30. Everything seems new. It's bright and clean. There is a lot of room/space. I have over 5 years of around-the-world travel and have seen a lot of guest houses and hostels. Kismet Dao is one of the best.
