Cheap hostel with the windows straight on main city squrae: you'll need to look pretty hard to find accomodation in this area for such a price. Nothing really special except that.

Very helpful staff. Amazing position. Private room had no window, very very small, a little bit stinky and not possible to be closed from inside.

This must have been the noisiest place I ever stayed as the walls seemed to be made out of paper -- you could hear the faintest noise from the adjoining rooms as well as hallway (and there were guests arriving after midnight and even some cleaning going on during the night). Other than that mostly positives: nice staff, central location right next to Maidan Nezalezhnosti, clean room, late check-out -- a minor gripe about the shower which is difficult to use due to lack of space for undressing.

One problem was that my locker key could open all the lockers as well as other guests keys could open my locker.

I would recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Kiev. It is not directly in the downtown of the city, but it is in its proximity (20 minutes walk). In addition, it is very close to the main train station. What I valued the most is its atmosphere and the warm welcome of the hosts. They gave us all the necessary info, as well as recommendations for food, tours, weather - basically anything you need!

Great place to stay, but a bit queer. There's no locks on the doors to rooms, but there're lockers, so it's Ok. It's situated in a very center of Kiev and has a great view of Maidan Nezalezhnosti.

I can not rate the hostel according to the above points. The reason is one: in spite of the reservation, booking confirmation (I telephoned the hostel and got confirmation), despite the advance payment - at the moment of arrival to the hostel we learned that the reserved room is busy. Service pointed us to another hostel for a much worse location and a lower standard. Another annoyance was that just before the entrance to the hostel we paid for parking for two days. It was a big amount for us.

It's not the nicest hostel in terms of facilities and amenities, but you can't beat the location or the atmosphere of the place. All of the staff are awesome and extremely helpful, and the way that the place is set up it really encourages people to socialize and plan sightseeing to together. The location couldn't be better, as a ton of bus routes and two metro stations are literally a stone throw from the door, and our window looked out on to Maidan Square!

Hostel is near the Independance square (about 3min). So location is great. There are 2 metro stops not far away hostel. There are 2 showers and 3 toilets. Anyway, everything was great. We left our luggage in this hostel after checking out for free.

The location is great and so is the view through the window. The staff is really helpful, if you ask them what you want to know. Private rooms are not very big, but they are clean.

It was AWFUL!!! At the day of our arrival we were relocated to another hostel which was really awful! We have booked a single room for our group and we were split in different rooms with other people. Of course we were lied for the deposit and payed the entire amount despite the fact that we have pre-payed a deposit trough the site.
