I couldn't recommend this hostel enough. Aricio the manager, and his staff we're incredibly helpful for drawing on a map the best places to visit in Kiev. He's able to organise trips to Chernobyl, car arrangements, restaurant bookings.. this guy can do anything. He's trained his staff super well that when he's not around they are able to help you...

This is the best hostel I've stayed at in over a year of backpacking. The staff are all incredibly friendly and it's a great place to hang out and meet other travellers, and they organise shooting and Chernobyl tours from the hostel. The location is great, Kiev is a big city and it's easy to get wherever you need to... More

Atmospheric and characterful hostel with relaxed, easy going and knowledgeable staff. Would stay there again. Despite the name is it not as close to the station as it sounds. Probably 30min walk from station (uphill for some parts) with backpack etc.

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at!! It's super clean, social, and the workers were really helpful in recommending restaurants, bars, clubs, activities etc. I would definitely stay at this hostel longer if my trip allowed me too. Can't get enough! Definitely stay here, you won't regret it.

Very nice place. The rooms are specious, the staff very helpful and friendly and there is a very nice common room. The attitude of the staff makes this a great place for solo travellers! They really live with their guests. Only downside is it's location (30min walking from center).

Had a great time at this hostel. Chilled people there for a good time. Aricio and his team are fantastic. Very helpful and quick to solve any problems i had by email or in person. Went on the Chernobyl tour and shooting range through the hostel and were both great tours. Thanks so much guys!

I loved this hostel!! The friendly atmosphere, the beautiful common area and especially the incredible stuff made me want to go back again and again. This place is run by young people, ready to help you and make you feel like home. I felt more like I was hosted in an apartment full of friends and less in a hostel.

Great social atmosphere here and the staff is incredible! You'll feel right at home in this hostel. The ONLY reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the location. It's a good 20 minute walk from the metro and about 27 minutes from the city center. You can take buses, and I do recommend them, or... More

Despite the current war that is raging in East Ukraine and the consequent diminish of guests influx, the hostel provides a great treatment, making you feel like you're a guest from a private home.

This place was great, the hosts had plenty of information to see the sights around the city. Also they organized the Chernobyl trip for me which was very interesting to visit. The rooms were clean and warm during winter. Also the location was excellent with metro and bus stops close by. I felt like family when I was there, it... More
