A fantastic hostel! Located truly at the center of everything in Lviv. The staff is very helpfull and really polite with everyone. Great atmosphere. Beds are comfortable and rooms are clean. Amazing view from the windows included, overlooking the main square, where you can watch Lviv's bustling social scene going by. Nice, well equipped kitchen and very clean bathroom. Highly recommended!
Much to be improved. Start with less beds for toilet showerratio and fix hot water ffs
Very nice place in the Rynek, best location in the city center. Everything is clean and staff is very welcoming and helpfull. Very cheap for the good hostel it is.
This hostel was a very standard hostel, nothing really stands out about it. The location is greatand it was very cheap but so were the rest of the hostels in Ukraine. My only real problem was the staff, we asked the staff how to get into a passworded restaurant and they gave us a code but it didnt work so we came back to the hostel to ask for help, instead of help they openly laughed at us and continued drinking offering no further advice. Beautiful city, deserves a better hostel.
It was a really great night. The staff was awesome and I taught her some card games and I just met really nice and interesting people while I was there. It was a great weekend getaway
Only one shower and toilet but when I was there it wasn't super crowded so this wasn't a big issue. The location couldn't be better. I was very satisified overall. Great value.
Easy to reach the hostel from the train station by tram 1. Fantastic view from the window: the skating ring. Very clean, comfortable beds, spacious bathroom, nice kitchen. Friendly staff. Good value for the money.
Despite the 'quiet after 11pm' rule, people will continue to listen to loud techno music until 12 or 1 in the morning. The shower should also be fixed.
Amazing location, friendly staff and comfortable facilities.
Location and hostel was good only not so many toilets and one bathroom if you stay in a dorm. Quite often I had to wait.
Great location in the middle of historic sites and night life. Clean and modern, though reception was right outside the door to the dorm so it got loud when people coming and going. overall, a great hostel for the price, and helpful staff as well.
Because it was the euro's it was very expensive but the staff were very helpful. Would like to go back but under different circumstances.
This was a wonderful place to stay while exploring Lviv. The staff was helpful and friendly and the location is the best in the whole city. You are right in the center of all the best sites in the heart of the city. The hostel was big enough to meet other travelers but not so big that it was impersonal. It felt like home!! I will defintely be back and stay at Central Square again. A great city and a great hostel.
Central Square Hostel will take you in wonderful world in city center in heart of Lwów. From balcony of historical apartment house you can see everyday's Lviv life Kind-hearted personel very quickly give you an impression that you are between your friends, in your home not in hostel. Free towels, maps and guided tours are provided but don't forget that friendly staff is full of advice. Hard things are solved in a minute, for impossible case you will have to wait just a moment.
Everything was ok besides the shower, which has been broken at the time when we stayed there. Best location, main square of Lviv!
First they tried to cheat and required much higher price than was already booked. After long time when this issue was settled my stay was ok but you could see how many workers are in this hostel that was almost empty. I think it was 4 paid workers and only one would be enough. They did a lot of cleaning all afternoon, the hostel was clean but still it is a old run down flat. Disturbing was that the workers talked loudly late in the evening.
This is a clean and comfortable place to stay and the location can't be beat. The staff are helpful, friendly, and generally awesome people (shout-out to Arsen and Masha!). I just wish there was a bigger/better common area, as the tiny kitchen isn't the most convenient place to have a conversation.
Considering staff, it was the worst place I've ever been in Lviv. I've been told, that it was impossible, that I made reservation for New Year night (although I had confirming of booking right in my hand!!). So I heard that I have to move to another hostel for that last night, and they could help me find another one, but It would be triple price (because it's New Year). The only helpful person was chief of this hostel, so we could reach an agreement (but still we couldn't stay for that night)
