Hostelz.com's Review
Why not? Kiev is extremely social with good opportunities to meet people and make friends. It is very lively, with plenty of guests that are just staying for few days or staying for longer term.

The Location

It is easy to find. From the main train station, you can walk (it takes about twenty-five minutes). After leaving the train station go straight Kominternu Street, then take the second right Saksahanskoho Street and go to number 30 (on the left side of the road). There is a big sign outside on the right of the grey door, you cannot miss it. You can also take the yellow minibus number 10/539, which stops a hundred meters away from the entrance of the hostel.

The hostel is just fifteen minutes' walk to the center. Close by, there are plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes, food stores, shops, a big supermarket, and the Olympic Stadium (if you are in Kiev to enjoy some football).

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorms have lockers and are spacious, clean, and tidy. Some bunk beds have lockers underneath the actual bed that are big enough to fit a large backpack (borrow a padlock from reception if you don't have one). Linens and towels are free. There is air conditioning in every room. There are three bathrooms and three showers with hangers to hold your clothes while you are showering; the bathroom receives regular attention from a professional cleaner.

Common Spaces

There are different common areas. The reception has sofas where you can seat and relax, as well as a computer in case you didn't bring your own. There is free Wi-Fi connection available. In the reception, there are free maps and boards with tips and suggestions about Kiev (tours, places to eat, places to visit). The kitchen is clean, with plenty of pans for cooking, plates, mugs, and everything you need to make your own meal. There also is free breakfast from 9 to 11:30 every morning.

Summary

Overall, we love this hostel. The staff are unbelievably helpful and friendly and there is a good atmosphere. Also, it is terrific to have free laundry facilities. You have to remember to take your shoes off as soon as you walk in, though, which we find keeps the place as clean as possible. Take sandals with you if you don't want to walk barefoot.
