Sweetest hostel ever, sweetest location. In-house cafe and bar is super, super cheap and the food is great. Super convenient. Love this place, wish they didn't limit stays to two weeks, I would stay a month.


Perfect, absolutely no complaints!

Well, the vibe was way off. Felt like a getaway for Russian's on holiday. Too chaotic and the staff were not helpful or welcoming. One even got frustrated with me because I was having difficulty with her very thick accent.


Excellent hostel, comfortable beds, clean and big bathrooms, good facilities, close the best area of Kiev. Definitely recommend it and would be back.


Not just the best hostel in Kiev, but one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. This is my second visit. This big hostel occupies a hotel-style building facing a courtyard away from the street. It's in a trendy part of town with many food options. Only drawback is the long distance from the train station and the challenge of taking a taxi without being ripped off. (Subway is too crowded for luggage.) I highly recommend using the hostel's transfer service from the airport.


Excellent cafe next door food good, but the food service could be a little slow. Drinks excellent


The location is very good, right at the bottom of Andrew's Descent. On the way up the Descent there are plenty of places to eat and buy souvenirs. It is located on the side of the river with the downtown, so the main sights in Kyiv are not hard to get to (or that far from the sights once you get to the top of the Descent). The staff at the hotel was very friendly, though the service at the adjoining cafe could be improved to more Western standards.


This place has the potential to be really good, but falls short in some areas unfortunately. A guy in our dorm discovered the hard way that your locker key may well open other lockers - his computer was stolen. The staff in the Druzi cafe in particular were pretty rubbish - I was constantly asked to move to different tables to allow for "reservations" and the chef refused to prepare eggs in any other way than ever-so-slightly-fried. My bed linen was removed daily for some reason too?


nice hostel, friendly staff. My two person room was big en very clean! The hostel is a ten minute walk from the subway, close to a supermarket. The hostel can arrange a taxi from the airport to the hostel for a good price.


Amazing staff - super helpful! Amazing cafe/bar to chill out in after a long day sightseeing. Really clean and super secure. Would definitely recommend.


Great facilities, though staff could have been more helpful


Everything about this hostel was great. One of the best hostel experiences I've had. Would definitely stay here again in the future.

"Dream House has different categories of rooms and rooms of different sizes. Some rooms may seem tiny because of the big windows and beds. We will consider your wishes in the planning of new hostels in our chain. Guest comments are very important for us, so we are grateful for your advice." We hope it wouldn't be very hard for you to fix everything. Thank you for your help. We send you all best wishes from Kiev and hope to see you some day.


2 bed privite rooms are top notch for a hostel but single bed privite rooms are at the basement and there is no sun coming inside. There is not really any activities Hostel doing but they are really helpfull for what to do where to see in the city.

Thank you! Our team are always ready to give some recommendations and we usually organize different activities gathering a big group of people. All our single rooms are on a ground floor and sometimes they seem to be dark. We appreciate your feedback and it would be great to meet you again!

Thank you so much for your review! We are so appreciate it! Hope to see you next time at our hostel! Best wishes, Dream team=)


I've been to many hostels in Ukraine, but this would probably be the best hostel in Ukraine. It is very big corporation like hostel. The staff was little uncomfortable with English, but that is more expected in Ukraine. Not many hostel scheduled activities, however it has a bar and a restaurant and cool chilling lounge. Location is not too convenient, because it is close to old town, but you have to climb the hill everytime

Thank you for your review! We appreciate it! Our staff always try their best to make your stay more comfortable. We will take into consideration all your advices, because it is important for us to know wishes of our guest! As for location, so we are in 5 min from the metro station, and it is very comfortable to get to different parts of Kiev. It is not necessary to climb the hill everytime. Hope to see you next time and we wish you all best wishes!
