Not a hostel, just a old apartment with people literally living in the 'hostel'. Of course the kitchen is the common area and in tiny and always taken by locals. Look somewhere else...

Dear guest, Thank you for your review! If the guest does not violate the rules of our hostel (don't try to steal things from other people), he is not looking for somewhere else...


A quiet place to sleep in a great location just a few blocks from the landmarks, public transport and dinning options. A lot of Kievan hostels are populated with dodgy (maybe local) guys who you don't feel very safe sleeping nearby. Whereas Salve is ran by a small honest Ukrainian family, occupied by backpackers and travelers. The owner of the hostel speaks English well, which makes things easier if you.. niyiit ya na gavuroo parooskie Thanks D!


Nice hostel. The staff very friendly, you can buy small presents and drink in the hostel. Very good location.


Staff was really helpful and friendly. Great location. I Will definetly stay again!


Hello Hostelworld, I sent you an email but you didn't reply. How can I contact you? Salve hostel did not recognize my reservation. Somebody has to pay for this.

Dear Guest! We marked your booking as “no-show” because according to our rules if the guest did not arrived in time that he/she set in booking, we are waiting for him/her during three hours and then cancel the booking. You specify 9:00, but arrived at 18:00.


Long term residents occupy the lower bunk beds, leaving the upper beds only for short term guests / travellers and making me wonder if this is a hostel or a homeless shelter. Also some long term residents tend to leave the front door of this 6th floor hostel unlocked when going down to smoke outside. If somerhing goes missing, who is ro be blaimed?

Dear Guest, If our hostel looks like a homeless shelter, why you stayed in our hostel for the long term? You know that we have face control and homeless people have any entrance to our hostel. In addition to that you slept only three nights on the upper bed and I don’t understand what the problem was! We worry about the safety of our hostel and our hostel is equipped with cameras. In any case, we thank you for your review!
