The sign for the hostel on the street is quite small, we missed it when we first walked past. The receptionist who checked us in was nice and explained the set up to us. The hostel seemed to be mostly Ukrainian long term stays which meant the atmosphere wasn't that great. But it was close to the metro station and buses. The walk to Maiden Square or any of the churches wasn't too long.

The main plus of this hostel, apart from the excellent location in terms of closeness to one of the central metro stations, was the relaxed atmosphere. It feels like hanging out in someone's private living room. However, if you don't speak Russian you might feel slightly excluded.


This hostel was NO ALCOHOL which wasn't made very clear on the description. Our room was great though and had air conditioning and location is brilliant, and it's fairly easy to go out in Kiev and meet people anyway so it didn't matter that there weren't many English speakers in the hostel. Communal area in the hostel is nice too.


I had a pleasant stay here. Nice staff, good rooms and easy walking distance to city centre.

Thank you for your feedback! Your home in Kiev waiting for you anyday!:)


Booked five days but after one they said they were overbooked and I had to leave. If I had offended them someway I don't know how. A firetrap, 4th floor, one stair exit, no stationary or rollup fire ladders. Was trapped in the elevator once, alarm didn't work, had to yell for help. Crowded, same floor space as two other nearby hostels but almost twice as many beds. Kitchen small, fridge full, atmosphere a bit tense, poorly laid out. Everybody climbs over and around each other. Staff does try.

We regret about this fact and understand your mark is more than fair this way. We apologize for all these unpleasant situations. We have already clean up our fridge, we changed our instructions for staff and revised all regulations that helps us avoid unpleasant situations with overbooking.
