The best choice in Lviv with perfect location & helpful staff
We had to do an early check in(8AM) and the host was great letting us stay paying half of the stay in addition to the normal value. But we didn't think the beds sheets were clean, the bathroom was very dirty, but maybe it was because we arrived at 8 AM and no one had cleaned it yet. Living room wasn't also very nice. Location is great, right in front of the main square and close to a lot of nice shops.
This hostel is located in right next to Rynek square and it's center of city. easy to access everywhere. I had little problem to find door because sign is not visible at night.
Location is very good, next to a main square and the two clubs are almost around the corner. Regarding atmosphere they still have some way to go to get to the level of some of the best hostels, but all in all we had little to complain about. We could even use the beds already for a discount price because we arrived really early, which was appreciated.
Very good location, clean and safe. There is a very unpleasant smell coming from the bathroom in the superior double room. No noise insulation and if the other guests are noisy in the lounge, you will be distributed. Not a great atmosphere. Staff does the job, not more. There must be better deals...
The wifi of the second floor was very poor. The rest excellent.
This hostel is located close to the center of Lviv/Lvov, with plenty of restaurants and museums close by. Overall everything was great, with a few minor exceptions; the large area with one set of showers doesn't have a lot of light. The kitchen and lounge area fill up quickly if there are a lot of people staying at the hostel. The door to the balcony is currently broken, so if you want to go out to the balcony and people-watch, you need to be very careful when opening the door.
We are an older couple and have stayed at many hostels. It's not worth getting a private room at this hostel. For the money, you can get a good 3 star hotel for a little more money and a lot more value. There was a sewer odor in the hallway leading to the 2nd floor rooms. There's no real space to meet people either. Staff were super nice and helpful but there are no organized tours or pubcrawls or any attempt to get people to meet each other. I can't comment on the dorms.
