I could not have asked for better people, a better location, or a better atmosphere. This hostel was run by the highest caliber of people, and the overall atmosphere they created with so little effort, made social experience positive. They were also admirably clean, and this along with the secure nature of the building made me feel very comfortable stepping out into the city with no anxiety over my belonging. My only wish is that they had an oven, but this is trivial given the overall experience


friendly staff, great location steps to everything in rynok square. could use additional shower and toilet.


I was in Central Square Hostel for three nights. All the staff was very helpfuf and nice (in particular one girl at the reception :) ). The location of the hostel is in the main square of the city, so you can reach all the main attractions of the city by walking.


Our experience while living in this hostel was definitely a positive one.The staffs are very helpful and moreover very nondescript :) You will find your needs and necessities taken care of without seeing them being done :) You will find things when and where you might need them.Also, given the amazing location, going around the city and dropping of stuffs when you are a bit overloaded made it so much more convenient.There was no shortage of the basic utilities with very accommodating neighbours.


When I first arrived without a reservation, they said the hostel was full. Then I made a reservation via this website and *suddenly* there was a free bed for me (in reality they had no guests at all at that time). Furthermore was the staff shouting to each other, the bathroom had a horrible smell, the shower is horrible and the building is quite noisy. I am very, very disappointed in this hostel since it seemed to be so nice according to the reviews. I'd advise people to choose other hostels.


Small hostel, but the staff was really pleasant. It felt that I was at home, highly recommend it! And the location is perfect, right in the city centre, close to every major attraction in Lviv


Great location.

The location couldnt be better. U have the view of the main square from the balcony! The hostel itself is small and cozy. The staff is friendly and helpful. I will stay there again on the way back from Kiev. See you soon guys!


Good position, the shower on the bathroom doesn't work and the room's cleaning wasn't not the best. The hostel need a reception and receptionist, I had my check-in by my self...it's normal?!?


They moved me to other hostel to cheaper room without changing a price, staff were extremely unkind as well as administration. I really don`t see a reason to be back here


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.
