Property Description

Hello Friend,
Let me show you our hostel. This lovely place is named Magic Bus Kiev, we called it after the movie 'Into the Wild'. I hope you like this film and as you are searching for a place in Kiev - you're fond of travelling.

You know, Hostel is not just a place to spend night - it's different philosophy of travelling and lifestyle, it's ideal way to find friends, share your travelling ideas, find companions for your future trips around Ukraine and outside; sometimes hostel could even be the beginning of your romantic relations, if you need some.

So let's look closer on

We are located in the center of the city, 2 blocks from the metro station 'Lva Tolstogo', 5 blocks from the main street Khreschatyk and in the walking distance from the main Railway Station. It's easy to find us, but difficult to leave =)

-You can choose to stay in one of our incredible double rooms (with Asian and Bob Marley design);
-Or you're welcome to pick up our spacious 12 bed dorm, which has air-conditioning, separate balcony with a hammock and reading light on every bed.
We organized a lovely common area for you, where you can read, play board games, listen to music or simply chat in the candle lights.

And of course we have everything you might need after the road : iron, hair drier, laundry service, different phone and lap-top charges, book exchange and plenty of travel advices.

WHAT IS FOR FREE?
-Free Wi-Fi in every room
-Free everyday walking tours around Kiev
-Free city maps and guide books
-Free linen sets and towels

-Free smile of our charming staff at least twice a day =)

ANY NO-s?
Yep, say it loud:
-NO curfew

Here we go:
- Tour to Chernobyl (please contact at least 14 days in advance)
- Kayaking and SUP rentals / Kayaking tours on the Dnipro River

    I booked 3 nights and jumped into the magic. I have subsequently lengthened my stay 3 times now. Why do I like the Magic Bus? The staff are great (there was this really cool guy who welcomed me with a smile, we got on and I learnt to speak some Russian/Ukrainian). The other staff are also friendly and happy to help, their characters diverse and authentic. I get a deeper understanding of Ukrainian culture everyday. The location is perfect. The hostel is cleaned everyday. It is cosy.

    Very good quality hostel, few things let it down. Kitchen was very dirty, road traffic outside was very loud. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff were sound and helpful.

    This hostel double-booked their dorm bed. I turned up to check in but there were no beds available, despite my online booking. I think this is a hazard of having a property on booking.com and Hostelworld (be aware of this, consider calling to book your stay) The staff acknowledged their mistake right away, giving me access to the WiFi so I could find another place and a cup of tea. The deposit that I paid for the booking has not been returned yet. I would have loved to stay here if I could

    Staff struggle with any language that wasn’t Ukrainian and seemed largely unfriendly and uninterested. The smoking area is on a balcony you can only access through the bedroom so not only did cigarette smell watt into the room often, staff also came in and out regularly to smoke. The beds were uncomfortable and plug sockets were scarce. There is no common room for people to socialise, just a corridor with a couch. 1 shower and 1 toilet amongst 16 people is also not ideal.

    Only one bathroom and shower for the entire hostel. Could feel every spring in my mattress. Bunk beds felt as if they could fall apart at any minute. Staff watched movies at high volume in the room while I was trying to sleep. Staff ate food in the room which was forbidden. Absolutely no atmosphere and minimal help from staff. Save yourself the trouble and go to central station instead!

    Upon our arrival, I have to request help from the receptionist since the taxi driver was trying to overcharge us. We ended up solving the situation by ourselves since the receptionist just turned his back on us. While trying to check-in, our room was no longer available and sold to another couple. There is no reception here, things are dealt on a sofa and through google translate on the phone. Hostel and rooms doors are always opened, there is a smell of humidity and it was the end of summer.
