I have been to this place before many times from 2010-2013. First I asked for a private room with the double bed and i got a room with four. Also they overly charged me, more then the asking price online. Also the internet was very slow and did not work well.

The Central Station Hostel in Kiev is one of the best hostels i have ever stayed at. The staff is super welcoming, like to share their knowledge about the city and also like to go out with the people staying at the hostels if they have got time. The staff grew very close to me even in the short time... More

This hostel is everything I could want, and more. It's worth looking at a good map before you come, as it is difficult to find the first time, but after that it is around a 15 min walk from the station, and about the same to the nearest Metro, Universytet. Staff spoke good English, and were very helpful- on my... More

This hostel is in a hard place to find. There are two streets with similar names, so be careful when you go there. The entrance of the hostel is not very easy to find in the street, because there are no indications in the street that the hostel is there. The hostel is not very clean and the desk is... More

The hospitable owner made staying in Kiev exceedingly easy. Firsthand knowledge of the area, accurate recommendations, he even offered to pick me up from the hospital after I fell ill.
