Didn't have a hot shower the entire time I was there. One day it was completely cold. Did some washing but there was no dryer only 3 racks which were being used. Considering the size of the hostel this is a little ridiculous. Everything else was great.
Just about the most perfect hostel, housed in its own 3-story building facing a courtyard. Plenty of amenities, including rental bikes, good wifi, lots of power plugs in rooms. Interesting and vibrant neighborhood. Located on a historic street leading from the river up to the original city. Grocery store nearby. 10 minute walk from the Metro. Definitely will return.
It is a good hostel. Probably the best in Kiev. This is why it seems to be a little crowded. Though it is really worth staying there.
Very centrally located and a great value. The staff was a lot of fun and had good recommendations for bars. The one bad thing was the pub night they were organizing was canceled. Also: Anyone worried about going to Kiev because of the Russian invasion shouldn't be. The city is very far away from the east and felt quite safe and has been very well restored after the protests.
Hostel placed in one of the best streets in Kiev. It's very clean, staff are very friendly and it has a great atmosphere.
Great hostel for sure. Modern and quite good facilities. I just wish they had separated the toilets from the showers. Good atmosphere and easy to meet people.
Had a great stay here! One of the nicest hostels in Ukraine, if not Europe. Place was very clean, very modern, and best of all, COLD AT NIGHT!!!! For the first time I slept in a cool and dark room, unlike other hostels. Everything worked out pretty good with this hostel. The only thing less than satisfactory was the typical poor Ukrainian customer service. Poor by western standards, but average by Eastern European standards. I recommend highly a stay here!
I've stayed in innumerable hostels over the years, but Dream House is one of my all-time favourites. The facilities, design and location are faultless, yet it's the friendliness and efficiency of all the staff that made a lasting impression. Special thanks to Sasha and Lena for their perseverance in trying to trace my missing rucksack. Without their help I might never have been able to reclaim it. I hope to return next year.
Nice hostel clean, comfy beds, good WiFi and power sockets/lights for all but very cramped and thus hot in the 6 bed dorms, not enough space for everyones bag let alone to swing a cat. Also only 3 lockers per room so poor security.
Staff were brilliant at answering emails before I arrived. (I changed dates a couple of times before arrival and they were fine. Also they sorted out a tour booking for me beforehand) . They are very helpful and friendly. Kiev is a great place to go and this hostel is one of the best I've stayed in. Better than a lot of 2* hotels I've stayed in. Perfect Hostel.
The most beautiful and confortable hostel I've stayed in so far !
the staff are very courteous and go out of their way to make you "FEEL LIKE YOU ARE AT YOUR OWN HOME" !!!

One of the best hostel but the kitchen is too small and sometimes lack atmosphere being too big
Fantastic Hostel if your choosing one in Kiev go for this one (best ive ever stayed in) only downfall was a small kitchen (it was clean and everything was ok but it had a 1 ring hob to serve the entire hostel and its a big hostel) but dont let that put you off.
No way this hostel gets 100,0% in every category! The staff is very nice and helpful and speaks perfect English. A 24 hour supermarket is around the corner. There are lots of nice bars and places to sit around just a few steps away. Easy to reach by metro. The cleanliness is like it should be. Everything looks modern and welcoming. Originally we thought to stay one night, and we ended up by staying 6 nights.
You can't stay anywhere better, they were so professional booking my Chernobyl Tour and the staff were super friendly. Loved the restaurant downstairs, lots of activities to do. Only issue were the mosquitoes but once you close the window and put on the a/c, all was good
великовозрастные турки и проч. в поисках нимф не слишком приятные соседи.
Each time in this hostel is full of joy and happiness even if its short staying after the long flight, staying in the hostel is hundred percent safe,staff is always ready to help you any time,special thanks to manager Marina,receptionists Alina and Lena,bathrooms and toilettes are always clean,which is very important to me,Druzi cafe is one of the best place to eat,it is highly appreciated by the locals,the atmosphere of the courtyard in one of the most ancient streets of Kiev is so charming.
