What this hostel boasts in location and cleanliness, it lacks in character and atmosphere. Most of the guests at the hostel were middle-aged locals who spoke no English and always had sour faces. There was also a group of rowdy pupils who ran around screaming until 11 PM. The beds in the room were set up as bunk beds, but were actually single beds nailed on top of each other, so it wasn't very comfortable since the beds kept shaking and squeaking. Some staff not knowledgeable about directions.
Very good location, next to the subway station and close to the city centre. Clean rooms, nice staff. Quiet area, big common room, free wi-fi. Great place.
I stayed 1 night and I am glad I choose the Gagarin Hostel. This place ticked all my boxes.
The location is fairly central and is within walking distance of a metro station. The receptionist is excellent, speaks very good English and very helpful.
It's good hostel in a good location within a 3 minute walk to metro stop. I'd recommend it to anyone visiting Kiev.
Very good stay, staff very helpful, good location, clean, quite place had a good nights sleep every night. I would stay again and recommend to others.
Very clean, bright and good atmosphere. Great value for the money.
I had a pleasant stay, I was in a 2 people room and it was clean and nice. Services were ok.
Staff in the hostel was kind and useful.
The hostel itself was great! Clean and well-maintained. It is easy to walk almost anywhere from the location and there is public transit about a minutes walk from the hostel.
Very big and crowded during weekends in summer. Can be a little noisy for those who might want to have a good rest.
Gagarin hostel is a place where you can stay for many days, cause it's cheep, clean and safe. Stuff is pretty well, rooms are clean, many showers and big kitchen with cooler. One problem - no wi-fi in the far rooms. You can catch it only in the kitchen. Not fare away from hostel near metro station is cheep grocery.
Very friendly, pro-western clients orientated hostel. Good location, kind English speaking stuff, clean and secure environment, I can only reommend.

I had a great time at Gagarin! The staff goes above and beyond to help you, even if they didn't speak great English. The facilities were good but the showers could use a more thorough cleaning. I met lots of people and we had a wonderful time together and still keep in contact. I would stay here again no question.
