The Hostelz.com Review

Five Flags Hostel is an amazing hostel located in the very heart of Uzhgorod, Ukraine. It hosts tourists all year long and it can offer conditions of which most hostels can only dream.

The Location

The location is just perfect. It is located on the main street, just a hundred meters from the very center of the city. And what is even better, it is in the pedestrian zone and in a quiet neighborhood. Uzhgorod is a small city, so you can see everything in the city without using any public transportation. The river and the Aqua Park are also close to Five Flags Hostel -- not more than ten minutes' walking. However, the train and the bus stations are a bit far -- about twenty minutes on foot and you need to make a lot of turns, so if you have more luggage, you can use a bus or take a taxi. The airport is far from the city and you may need to take a taxi as there are not many buses going there.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Five Flags Hostel has both dorms and private rooms; you get blankets, linens, and a towel. The beds are great -- huge and comfortable. The rooms are clinically clean as they are cleaned thoroughly every day. The eight-bed room has four bunk beds, huge lockers, and a large couch, but there is still much space in the room. There is also an air conditioner in the room.

There is only one shower which is ok ... most of the time. It is modern and very clean. There is also only one toilet, which also could be a challenge.

Common Spaces

There is also a laundry room with washers and dryer. A great advantage is that you can wash your clothes for free. The kitchen is great -- it has a new stove, there are enough cooking plates, two refrigerators, many utensils, and a great variety of free teas and coffee. You can use the computer with internet; there is fast Wi-Fi, as well. There is no deposit.

Five Flags Hostel is a rather quiet hostel. You should know that Uzhgorod is not a party place, either. However, the staff are very helpful and friendly and they are ready to help you and you will most probably like the hostel very much.

Summary

Five Flags Hostel is great and it is unexpected to find such a hostel in a small city like Uzhgorod. The service, the facilities, and the location are great and you can hardly ask for more!
