I do not recommend staying in this hostel. Besides great location, there is nothing what would make my stay there nice - tiny rooms, dirty bathroom, rude staff and too many people - mostly locals, almost no backpackers.If paying one dollar more per night, you can get much better options in Kiev city center


The Hostel is located literally in the centre, what makes it easy to reach a lot of places just by walking. But unfortunately seems like the hostel runs a competition "how many additional rooms seperated by plaster concrete fit in one apartment".So we stayed in a room with a mini window to the corridor hearing evth.The kitchen consisted of a microwave,fridge & a few dishes you had to clean in the bathroom. But there you couldn't use a sink & a shower at the same time cause of waterpressure :(

Friendly staff, beautifull locaion. But rooms are very small, dirty and stinky. Three private rooms dosn't have any windows.


The doors for the showers may be broken and the interior quite poor. But if you stay for a while you can feel that this hostel has a very special atmosphere - a feeling of being in a Ukrainian hotel/hostel of the 1990-s as one can imagine it. The broken doors for showers, poor but easy taste, and staff which is helpful but doesn't carny makes this hostel a very special place, which can be interesting to see. The rest of your impression will depend from all different kinds of ppl staying there.


Very good value for money, and a good location right in the city center...


Showers do not work, no english spoken on the desk, various rooms given entirely to whole ukranian families. Location good but there are lots of other hostels same location but with far better standards of living. Do not under ANY circumstance book a single room. The rooms are 2m x 1m without windows or air con.
