This hostel gives the first impression that isn't very good because of the shabby places and smell of entrance but later it all goes away because this hostel is really very good. I stayed in a single room and the only bad thing about it was thin walls-I could hear people talking and even snoring in the next room. I also didn't really like the idea that showers and toilets were for both sexes but I was always alone when I used them, so I guess it's OK.


Old soviet building is nothing fancy, the stairs are steep and narrow, design is very simple and somewhat dated. On the other hand, everything is clean, staff is friendly, private rooms have very reasonably priced minibars with snacks, water and bathroom supplies (shaving cream, shower slippers, condoms). The location is excellent - beautiful central Street with lots of cafes and restaurants. There's also a siamese cat who lives in the hostel. Overall, well worth the money.

The Hub is an average hostel with good staff.. Andrew was very helpful on my last day which made a big difference. It's in a location which is in between the train station and the main part of the city, whereas being closer to one or the other is better. Rooms were clean and regularly tidied, staff were friendly.


Great hostel, very clean and open. Kind staff and great prices. Large communal area with a projector for fun movie watching. Fridges for everyone to use and big showers.


Great staff and very accommodating. Rating would be higher but the renovations are not done so it hard to tell how they will all look but based on what they have done so far it will be great. If you are an older traveler or have lots of bags the stairs are steep but staff will help you.


The kitchen had a lot of flies everywhere, and nothing was done to control them. Why not? The shower room floor became dirty very quickly--it was hard to dress and keep clothes away from the muddy floor. Put a shoe rack at the top of the stairs to place street shoes and change into slippers. The Hub could actually provide some cheap foam slippers and leave them at the shoe rack. Smokers drop cigarettes anywhere outside--perhaps have an outdoor ashtray and some cafe tables and chairs.


A fair place to stay in Ukraine. Thankfully owners speak English but many other guests here did not or very limited.. About 20 minutes walk to main square. Several common rooms and a useful kitchen. Ask for a locker if you need it. I never found the washing machine for laundry and breakfast may have been included but not obvious what or when. I liked the bean bags outside and in the common room to sit and relax. During my visit bathroom cleanliness was so-so. Might stay again.


Hostel is a 2 stored small building in the inner courtyard (very quiet, near the botanical garden, main railway station and the center). Nearby are planet sushi, fast food and small stores.Friendly staff, big kitchen, good showers, several toiltets (each floor), several common rooms - one with the computer. Lots of windows and space. I was in the private room - it was about 6-7 m2, big window, bed, cabinet with 5 drawers, hangers and an electornic code safe. Exellent value for the money!
