I really liked staying here, the location is excellent (quiet neighbourhood, less than 5 min walk to the metro station) and the facilities are great (plenty of showers, spacious dorms and a great common area/kitchen). Compared to earlier stays in Kiev, this was definitely the best option that I've encountered so far. It was sometimes hard to get in touch with people as many guests didn't speak English, but the hostel can't be blamed for this as only few people travel to Ukraine these days anyway
I've stayed at a few hostels in Kiev and this one has the best facilities, good atmosphere, nice staff and it's close to the metro so it's easy to get to.
