Nice place, remember to bring cash when you pay - the credit card machine is almost always wonky. Safe, good staff, great location!

This is a horrible hostel. When we had arrived, they had told us that unfortunately they had not free room for us. We have answered that we had confirmed booked room. After that have been shown to us 3 different hostels far from this hostel, but the atmosphere and the cleanliness have been very low. In my opinion it was very very unfair.I will never recommend this hostel for nobody!!! And I want get back my deposit. And please delete this hostel from the website of the hostelworld.

I've stayed in better hostels however this one was cheap. The location is great. I encounted 2 staff memebrs, one was unmotivated and also didn't speak English, however the other one seemed very professional. You may have heard of troubled times recently in Kiev, please do not let this put you of visiting this city. Dispite my average experience at the hostel this time I would still recommend it.

I stayed only one day in this hostel and I can say that when I return to Kiev again, I will definitely book a place here! The hostel is in the centre of Kiev and the view from the balcony is superb! The staff was really friendly and ready to help. You have a late check out and an early check in that I didn't find in other hostels. My room was clean and there was 4-5 places where to have a shower. Definitely a place to go when you stay in Kiev.

I stayed at the hostel for about two weeks in a private room and I have only positive experiences. Nice and helpfull staff and a cheap room. Sure, the bathroom and the shower were perhaps not "perfect" if you are a clean-freak, but you get what you pay for. If you want it perfect, pay extra and go to a hotel.

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.

I visited City Center Hostel during an inopportune time, (riots in Maidan) and was pleasantly surprised with the hostel. They were very friendly and helpful in arranging our trips and offering advice about the city. Fantastic location overlooking central square. Highly recommend!
