The place has a great location, and that's about all I have to say good about it. The rooms are overcowded and therefore smelly; not enough lockers for everybody. The common area and the kitchen are decently sized and equipped, but used mostly by the numerous live-in staff of 8-10 people. The cleaning constitutes of taking off dirty sheets and mopping occasionally, no one does deep cleaning and this makes it uncomfortable to use the showers and kitchen. Wouldn't recommend.
This is, so far, the best hostel I have stayed at. Excellent staff, excellent atmosphere, excellent everything! Staff speaks very good English, are fun and very helpful. What I have noticed was that guests and staff seemed to have a natural connection which made the atmosphere of the hostel very friendly and entertaining. I am definitely coming back for for the new years for the "house party" at the hostel that the staff are organizing. Thank you all very much for making my stay pleasant.
Staff is not speaking english almost at all. Actually no one in the hostel is. It was november but It is extremly hot in the room. The radiotor was running on a full power. Also people seemed not to be backpackers at all. Rather refugees or some kind of ex-prisoners. No working lockers in the room. On the other hand it was cheap and in a good location.
It's a cheap place which is why you will come across a few shabby people there. Totally wasted guy slept in our dorm and eventually pissed himself! Also some (probably harmless) weirdos were hanging around.. Besides that it's a fairly clean place and the staff was pretty helpful.
The only hostel in the center of Kiev where you can stay cheap , comfortable, nice and cozy. Great atmosphere! We ate borch , and the next day we ate very delicious pilaf at the big table at the guests room. The receptionists are very friendly. Alina and Zhenia should work together. They are the most professional team I ever seen.)) Thanks for your great hospitality!
