This is a nice hostel. Friendly staff and the cafe on site is really chilled and the food is good. The kitchen isn't great though. Food gets stolen constantly and there's no oven or toaster which I thought was a little weird. It's a big hostel with plenty of opportunity to organise events for the guests like pub crawls or city tours. Drink offers at the bar would encourage more guests to drink there rather than in the kitchen too.
Still havin' a good time here. Amazin' hostel for an amazin' city
Nice, modern hostel with a great restaurant attached. A little weird how the bathrooms are male/female and unless you wanna try and deal with stuff or change your clothes in a bathroom stall or a wet shower thers no place to do so. Other than that its really nice.
This is an excellent hostel. The staff go out of there way to be helpful. The location, facilities, cleanliness are all great. The restaurant is also really really good and serves a variety of tasty dishes. I highly recommend nThe Dream House.
This hostel allows people to live in their dorm rooms. In mine there were two older Ukrainians who didn't speak English and who had taken over the room with their things. The point of staying in a dorm is too meet other people and it wasn't easily done here. The common area gets all the noise of the bar and makes it difficult to communicate there. I also woke up with bug bites all over my arms. Not a place I'll return to.
The receptionists should be more helpful without giving attitude.
Everything that one would want in a hostel, clean, quiet, secure. The staff are an absolute credit to this place with everyone making your stay as comfortable as possible. Absolutely nothing to complain about with Dream House, will definitely be staying there on future journey's to kiev.

Really friendly and helpful staff
absolutely fantastic hostel. good location.was very busy, but it's very clean and modern. facilities were great and there is an on site cafe bar that is also very popular with locals. Only fault was the showers were often cold. we would stay again.
Fantastic modern hostel in a beautiful, quiet and still center located area of Kiev. The rooms and bathrooms, toilets are clean. I liked the stlye of the hostel, the reception area with the always nice and supportive staff, ready to answer every questions. The Druzi Cafe in the same building is also a cool place to start or end the day. Would definitely come back. The metro is also not far away.
It was a nice stay in a very interesting city with friendly people :)
I stayed in a private room so I cannot comment on the social aspect. The private room was nice but as it was a loft conversion the ceiling slopes down so mind your head when you get out of bed! The girls at reception were helpful. There is an adjoining cafe which I did not visit but it seemed busy enough. The hostel is located near the bottom of Andrew's Descent so be prepared for a strenuous uphill walk if you want to walk to St Sophia's Cathedral and Independence Square. The area was very nice
Great hostel! Loved having food onsite with menu in English. Facility clean and updated. Staff friendly and helpful. Good location near grocery, beautiful courtyard. Inexpensive for private room but do keep in mind private rooms are in basement-not a bad thing, just be aware because rooms are tiny with no air circulation. Every time I opened the basement window my little room was filled with cigarette smoke. I wish there was a little fan in the room. No dryer meant I wore wet clothes for 3 days.
Nice location, and lots of areas to meet other travellers. Don't bother with a private room if you're after quiet though - they're next to the washing machine which is so loud and people start using at 6am, also next to the kitchen which is supposed to close at 11pm but on each night had people in there after 1am shouting/being very loud (no door on the kitchen!) also bathroom in basement has no toilet - just shower and urinal so need to go up two floors to go the toilet in the night!
It was a lovely stay, everyone was really helpful every time we needed! The location couldn't be better, the Andriyivskyy Descent is really a dream place. Thank you very much! =D
I don't normally leave reviews but this place deserves a plug- A GREAT place to stay in Kiev! Clean, spacious, temp. controlled rooms, ultra clean BR, Shower, toilets. Lively bar with a good mix of backpackers and young locals! A great location near the metro and Andrew's Descent Street. Friendly, helpful, staff (and cute) staff too! Def stay here!
Dream house is great! Beds are stable and comfortable, everything is always clean. Staff is fantastic and they have everything you need. The common room and bar are not too conducive to meeting people, but you just have to start talking to someone and you'll make friends. My only real complaint is they desperately need a second refrigerator! And a fridge clean-out/labeling system.
A bit of walk to the metro station -- about five to ten minutes and you can basically go anywhere easily! It doesn't have lobby on each floors, but it has an amazing lounge on the first floor! Very clean and helpful workers.
I have been in many hostels and I can say that Dream Hostel is one of the best ones. It is pretty well located, in a pleasant area with many places where to eat out. The hostel is clean and has all facilities needed. The extra: having the AC in the room! I The weather was very warm, I dont know how we would have survived without it. The Druzi Cafe is great to start or end the day and the staff was always very helpful.
