Description

The Hostelz.com Review

TIU Khreshchatik Hostel is a small, cheap, and friendly hostel located in a very central area of Kiev. The cozy atmosphere here makes it easy to make new friends and will also make you feel like you are staying in a friend's apartment rather than a hostel.

The Location

This hostel is conveniently located next to many of Kiev's main tourist attractions, including Independence Square, which is a popular meeting point. It is also only about ten minutes' walk from the nearest metro stations, which can get you virtually anywhere you need to go in Kiev.

Rooms and Bathrooms

There are only two dorm rooms in this hostel -- a ten-bed mixed dorm and a six-bed female dorm. Both rooms are of a comfortable size, with plenty of room to put your belongings, in addition to space for a desk. The rooms also have an adequate number of power outlets and pretty comfortable mattresses. Keep in mind that, as seems to be the practice in most Ukrainian hostels, guests have to make their own beds.

There is only one shower and toilet to service the hostel, but this seems to not cause too many issues, since there is only a small number of guests. The toilet and shower are also in different rooms. Both are also kept nice and clean. The shower room is like a bathroom you would find in a regular house or apartment, so there is plenty of room to get hang your clothes and get changed without getting all your stuff wet.

Common Spaces

The hostel has a small living room/common area that is fitted out with two couches. It also has a computer that guests can use. Due to the relatively small size of this space (and more generally, of the hostel), it isn't exactly a party hostel. However, it is friendly and guests are certainly known to have a couple of drinks there before going out together afterwards.

In addition to the living area, the hostel also has a kitchen with a table and space for up to about five guests to sit. The kitchen is fully equipped, though food is so cheap in Ukraine that it is unlikely you will be doing any real cooking anyway! Guests can also help themselves to free tea and coffee.

Summary

TIU Khreshchatik is a great little hostel. It offers guests everything they need and more for a very low price. It also has a fantastic, friendly atmosphere, and great staff that speak Ukrainian, Russian, and English.
