I've only left perfect reviews for hostels until now. It’s an extremely small space (2 steps outside of the dorm and you’re in the bathroom) and a place to sit down to eat is rare if you plan on cooking (no kitchen tables). However I could care less about these things until the staff became extremely rude and tried on... More

I stayed in the Dream Hostel for two nights. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the atmosphere is just like it should be in a hostel - friendly and cozy but with no pressure to socialise. Also, it's cleaner than any hostel I've ever stayed at. Go there, you won't regret it :)

Incredibly friendly staff who can answer any question you may have. The hostel is very clean, artsy, and I would recommend it to anyone travelling to Kiev. It's affordable and has a great location right in the heart of Kyiv.

We had a great time here. It is really clean, and the people who work here are really friendly! The beds are super nice and comfortable, even though the walls are a bit thin. The bar and food that is connected to the hostel is quite good as well! I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to friends.

A small, but cozy place in the city center. Good interior, friendly stuff, free tea and WiFi. Tips: fortune-telling strips in aquarium and bordgames: jenga, monopolia, dixit... If you are looking for an affordable accomodation downtown and are eager to communicate, look for now other place!

This hostel was excellent. Hands down one of the friendliest and coziest places I have stayed. I was shocked at first at how similar to a home it is. Dream Story is several rooms with a central living space and a friendly staff. It is immaculate, cleaned daily with all the amenities needed to cook your own food and prepare... More

I spent very good time in the hostel & city. Pretty hostel crew's girls always help you in all matters. Beds are comfortable and give real relax and nice sleeping. The hostel is modern and clean. You can spend there all day or only night. I'm sure that I'll arrive again there :) Kisses for staff!

Stayed here in September with friends on the weekend. One of my friends from Kiev aware us that there's no hot water in Kiev and we were really surprised when reception girl said that we can take a shower!! They have 2 boilers, so there's 24h hot water - it's a really big PLUS!! There were no problems with WI-FI.... More

Location is not the best. Good brisk 15 minute walk to maidan. Right next to a strip club. Met a couple of guests who were of that type. 2 showers for whole hostel. One of them is so tiny you can barely turn sideways. Bed was very nice by ukrainian hostel standards. They charge for coffee. They even charge for... More

Thank you for your feedback! It's upset to hear that you didn't like our hostel. It's strange to hear that our location is quite bad because we are in the city centre and there's good infrastructure aroud the hostel.

More a roommate than a hostel, I spent in the dream hostel five days of simple joy. Kiev has a lot of charms, and one of the greatest is probably its sense of welcome. The girls of the reception are really nice and friendly and they could be a sufficient reason to come back to Ukraine. Best regards to Sveta,... More
