Hostelz.com's Review
Old City Hostel is one of the best hostels in Lviv, where you can find people from all over the world.

The Location

Old City Hostel is situated in the city center and it is almost on Rynok Square (it takes thirty seconds to walk there). To get to the hostel is very easy. You can take a taxi from the airport and from the railway station -- beware, if you are a foreigner, the taxi driver may ask for a little more money. You can also choose bus or tram -- it's not a problem as the bus and tram stations are three minutes' walking distance and either option is easy and cheap. The location of hostel is very convenient. There are a lot of shops, cool cafes and restaurants, and few nightclubs nearby. The first problem of hostel is that it's very noisy in the night. It is an old Austrian building, and while it's very beautiful, it's not very good for living. And there are no parking places; the nearest parking is not far away, but it's not very cheap.

Rooms and Bathrooms

To enter, you have to press seven at front door. The hostel is situated on the third floor and has a big and really clean space. There is a room for two people, a luxe room for two people, a room for four people, a room for six people, a room for ten people, and a room for sixteen people. Rooms are very nice and big, with fine, new furniture. Every bed has a desk lamp. There are three showers and three WCs in hostel; all are clean, new, and pretty big. Showers have enough space for changing clothes as well as soap dishes. One day during our stay, there wasn't warm water; that problem was fixed very quickly.

Common Spaces

The kitchen has very good equipment -- you can find there all that you need, and if you cannot find something, the staff helps you. An enormous problem of the kitchen is its size; it's definitely too small for such a big hostel. Breakfast is not provided in hostel, but you can have tea or coffee for free. The sitting area also has very good equipment -- you can find a TV, laptop, guitar, books, hookah, and many other interesting things. Wi-Fi is free and with excellent speed. This hostel has a big balcony overlooking the main street of the city. There are a lot of people there during the whole day, so you can't get bored there.

Summary

In total, Old City Hostel is the best choice to have a good time in Lviv and to save a little money, because in this hostel you can get a good place for good money. You can also get an airport shuttle for a surcharge.
