Overall my stay at this hostel was pleasant. It is clean, nice atmosphere and helpfull staff.
Nice hostel, clean and cozy. Good atmosphere and location, helpful stuff. You can find friends there very easily. The building has strange elevator inside, otherwise staying was very good.

Just 2 toilets for all the people, they are always busy. Cool atmosphere. Jeanie is amazing, but the other girls really hate to work cause they are not helpfull at all.
The vibe was a bit strange my first day but the girl working this shift was fired and after that, the staff were an absolute delight. I'd stay again any time.
Very clean hostel, super helpful staff. Washer/dryer available for very reasonable cost. Reliable wifi. The private room is huge and lovely. The mattress was a little worn (could feel some springs) but everything else here was so great that I feel like a whiner for complaining about it. Highly recommended.
Great stay in the hostel, fun and friendly staff that even cooked local Ukrainian food for us on Ukrainian National Day!
Lovely staff, very helpful. All the information you need is by the desk and you also get 'insider' info from the staff. Great location, great environment to make friends! Would definetely go back!
Good hostel. Not so much a party hostel, but it's easy to meet people there
As already mentioned in earlier reviews, the name of the hostel is somewhat misleading. Otherwise, this is a clean, safe, affordable and centrally located place with a nice staff and a cozy communal area.
Although the location is decent and the staff (Jenny) are nice and helpful, the hostel itself is tiny! The bathrooms are really small and there are only 3 of them for the whole place. It's more like a shared apartment than a hostel. There's no real privacy at the place and there's lots of rules. It's ok for night or two but there should be better options out there. I wouldn't stay there again.
It's not a party hostel but facilities are really good and modern, the apartment has been completely renovated. Jenia, the manager of the hostel is really lovely, she makes all the best to give her guests a wonderful stay, she is the best staff member ever met in a hostel throughout the world, it's difficult to leave but the travel must go on :) Good luck Jenia and thanks for everything!
Not much of a party hostel, but everything else was great
Not a party Hostel. But great staff!!! And good location.
The hostel is expensive relative to other options in Kiev in my opinion. We just had to book there as it was a last minute choice a day before going Kiev bound from Odessa. Valerie (one member of staff), wasn't very nice to my friend for just asking for information to go to the airport. She was probably upset for opening the door late for us the night before. But then again, we were told that it is ok to come in late.
It's a well arranged hostel. Staying there is quite comfortable. Well, but the concept of "Dream Party" sounds too much. It's impossible, I suppose. Such things after all depend only on each of your luck. :-) In my case of this stay, I enjoyed staying there calmly.
Never written a bad reference for a place before but i feel i should here. I was expecting something quite social staying at a "party hostel" but it was one of the quietest hostels i've ever stayed at. The staff were really nice but didn't have a clue where to party or where to drink. I also imagine queues if the hostel was full. The worst thing of all is that they charge you a decent amount to stay in the hostel past 11am but they are kind enough to let you keep your bag in the smoking area,
