I can recommend this hostel 100%! Do not forget to note the security codes of the three/four doors and have the phone number stored in your mobile


The common room is really good with nice places to hang out. And the staff is really helpful and go out of their way.


Nice spot, this was just a launching point for Chernobyl. Sometimes I couldn't find the staff, but otherwise a nice spot. Everything works!


The staff here are brilliant - they really know what they're talking about and can even help with unusual things (we wanted to get a Belorussian transit visa). It's a little walk out of the city centre, maybe 25 mins, but there's a nice sightseeing route you can do on your way in. Atmosphere is nice because everyone hangs out in the common area. Only problem was the doors to the hostel were often left open (not necessarily the staff's fault) and it felt like people could just wander in.


Amazing hostel and amazing and helpful staff,


I stayed with my friend in a female dorm and we really liked it. Staff and guests were cool, always hanging out in the common area and the fridge full of drinks was convenient. Definitely would come back again !

Great hostel! It's a bit far from the central square and the metro, but there's an awesome underground bar nearby where the waitresses dress up like nurses and the bartenders like doctors. The hostel staff is awesome and helpful. From the bus station, it's a bit far, and the taxis will try to rip you off. Better to arrive/depart by train (which is walking distance).


The staff was really helpful. The rooms were big enough for you to have all your stuff and walk around.


Very nice and clean hostel in the centre of Kiev. The atmosphere is great and you will definitely make new friends here! Staff is very nice and the owner takes the guests to a bar nearby every night. Only thing is that they don't ave a doorbell. When we came back from the bar the first night at 3AM, we didn't bring the door codes with us and couldn't ring the bell downstairs. We had to wait for others who knew the codes. But overall, I definitely would stay here again!


I had a great time in this hostel, good atmosphere, nice staff and the guy who runs the hostel is super nice! Obrigada por tudo:) see you next time!;)


Good place to meet people. The owner took us all to near by pub. However, location is decent walk from center.


It's nice to have cold adult beverages available at a reasonable price!


Very good place to stay. Thanks to administators: Lina and Aurisio - they are very helpful and attentive. Comfortable location. nothing to complain about:)


Nice staff that really seemed to like their job and were keen on helping you to see the best of Kiev. We also took the chernobyl trip. The price was high but compared to similar trips it was cheap. And it was really worth the price because of an unique experience.


Stayed for one night. Had a small issue with the showers at the place. Otherwise everything thing was not too bad!! Good suggestions on where to go eat


Staff very helpful and friendly. It was really nice staying there :)


The best part of this hostel was the community; everyone hung out in the central area.


I don't know what's the deal with this hostel, but EVERYONE you meet there is awesome. I didn't expect much from Kyiv, but I had the time of my life there with the people from the Hostel. Very chill, well located if you can walk (near an awesome bar too), big rooms, nice beds, very cool staff, etc. etc. I'd recommend to everyone to come here for a few days, it's definitely worth it!


I had a great time in hostel. People who work there are so friendly.


I loved this hostel. A lot of fun with the staff and other backpackers! See you soon!
