Mosquitos!! I can't sleep even if there is a single mosquito in the room. Stayed for 3 days. Day 1 killed 4 by staying awake until late in night. Day 2-3 slept well - used a mosquitos repellent spray picked up from local pharmacy. Otherwise okay hostel as others have reviewed. Excellent staff!!

It's a perfectly functional hostel with everything you need and pleasant and helpful English speaking staff. It just lacks atmosphere - at least for English speakers; since most of the other guests did not speak any English. It is also very small so the common area is just the reception, and the kitchenette is no more than a small corridor. We also had a problem with mosquitoes in our room! But, it's convenient for the train station, and staff are helpful if you have specific questions.

Taking into consideration that there are not many hostels in Minsk I would recommend VIVA Hostel. It is close to the Central Train Station and a 15-20 minutes walk away from the city centre. The facilities are clean and the value for money relation is fair. Nevertheless, I'd like to mention that it is a very small place, there is no proper kitchen (only a kitchenette) and the foyer is the common room at the same time. Furthermore, there was no real "hostel atmosphere" (common activities etc.).

Located near the railway station and a supermarket is right across the street. The staff are one of the rare people in Minsk you will encounter speaking any English. Dorms have no lockers and most people staying at the hostel speak only Russian. There are small lockers for valuables at the reception desk. Very basic facilities, small kitchen with microwave and electric kettle and only 2 toilets/showers. Wifi was good. A budget choice in Minsk.
