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.

Overbooking, incomprehension, stuck in an elevator, full hostel... we don’t need more grounds understand that your comfort was broken. 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. Thank you for telling about these cases. You gave us a reason to be better


Great place to stay in Kiev!! The staff is amazingly nice and helpful, the rooms are huge, the beds are comfortable, the common area is big and cosy... What else could you ask for really!? Would recommend to anyone who's looking for a nice and peaceful place to stay in Kiev!

We are glad you enjoy our hostel!)) Thank you for your feedback!!)) Come back to Kiev and join us again!!)) ... your place to stay in Kiev;))


Dream Story, Thank you for welcoming! Very nice, friendly, pleasant and helpful staff. Krystina, Tania and Lera, they are great) I liked that 10-bed dorm room is so big with high ceiling and well-equipped, personal light, good linen, soft mats next to the bed and its quiet at night because you live on a 4 floor and don't hear the lively street at all. Everything is close, this creates an atmosphere of comfort. Excellent location, Metro station is about 100 m from the hostel, many bars around)

Hi)) Thank you for your review!! We are very happy, than you liked our hostel! Waiting for you here again, hugs from Kiev=)


Nice staff, but the hostel was too small for my liking - occupying a large 4-bedroom apartment. (I was more comfortable at the sister property, Dream House, with more amenities and space and a more interesting neighborhood.) 4th floor, but building has a lift. Hard to find if you don't carefully follow instructions. Bunkbeds are high and a bit scary, with only a 1/2 meter railing. Getting up there requires some athleticism. Basic kitchen. Only 1 block from Metro. The high ceilings are a plus.

Hi Glenn)) Thank you for your feedback! It's so pleasant to hear that you liked our Dream House Hostel, but we are upset that our hostel was small for you=( It's great that despite all difficulties you found us) It's a bit stange that our beds are scary, because usually tourists like our beds and say that they are safe! Anyway we hope that you'll be back to Kiev and we are waiting for you at both of our hostels!!


My stay at Dream Story Hostel was pretty dull. Its great for after drinks from a major night out place to sleep. But don't expect a lie in. A long term lady has her phone constantly going off and she gets rude when asked to turn it on silent. The staff come in around 7 crashing and cleaning the floors when you try to sleep. Can't have windows open as its too noisy outside. If you have a problem and arise it. Be prepared to be lied to and them saying the hostel is fully booked. When it isn't.

Hi, thank you for your review! We are sorry that your stay was dull but maybe it wasn't a fault of the hostel? Anyway sorry. We had a serious talk with that woman and asked her to change her behaviour. We just want our guests to stay at clean and cozy hostel thats why girls clean the hoste; in the morning before they leave. Sorry if somebody woke you up, but usually we are trying to clean quietly Sorry, but we are sure that none of our staff could say that we're full when we're not
