The hostel is off the beaten path a bit, but it's close enough to the metro to not make it a deal killer. As far as atmosphere goes, it's not a glitzy or extravagant as some places, but if you're looking for a quiet, clean, and safe place to stay, Gagarin is a good place to stay. They also are family friendly: they didn't have any problem with our small daughter staying with us. And everyone on the staff was very helpful.


The service was second to none and all the staff were courteous and keen to help guests. That’s great! If say in few words: first class service, excellent location, spotlessly clean and the price is excellent! I would definitely come back and recommend the place to friends.


Great, very great!


Definitely staying there again when coming to Kiev . spotlessly clean, very safe place what was very important as there was a revolution in Ukraine. We was pleasantly surprised about how nice and welcoming the staff was, the quality of rooms and especially the bathroom facilities. I'm not a particulary hostel person but I can really imagine to come back there again. The location is only a few step from the center!
