I have no idea how this hostel got such good reviews. It's an old run down place, managed by this old guy who speaks zero English and hangs out creepily in the kitchen most of the day. When we arrived there was no English speaking person to check us in or show us around the hostel. It was as if... More

United Hostel is a wise choice hostel for budget travellers. They've got dormitories and private room too. We've stayed in the private room and were happy with it. The hostel is clean and the staff is helpful. Nice kitchen, free tea or coffee, free fast enough wifi. Once again, the hostel is only 50 paces away of the very centre... More

Beat on the planet Earth ! The owner is wonderful , kind , generous and helpful, and takes me to all the interesting places to visit in Kiev, like the art gallery, and the open market, where I can purchase my favorite raw goat and cow milk . Also makes sure the taxi driver does not charge me 200 when... More

I stayed at United for a while after arriving in Kyiv. It's in a great location in the middle of town and the price is very good too. The people who run the hostel are very friendly and helpful and the place is very well looked after. Highly recommend United as a place to stay while visiting Kyiv.

I went to Ukraine not knowing anyone or anything about this country, and United hostel changed that! The owners are two of the funnest and coolest people that I will ever have the pleasure to know. They are up for almost anything but at the same time, enjoy relaxing and having a good time and are not crazy. I felt... More

Stayed during the European Championships and was absolutly delighted! Considering the amount other places were charging at the time we were in town, this place could have comfortably charged 50,60,70 pounds a night considering facilities and location! Very helpful staff, comfortable beds, decent showers and as i've said, a great location! I'd recommend anyone to stay here!

Amazing value! Don't look any further if you want a central location in Kiev, newly renovated, clean, convenient and affordable. This is the best hostel I have ever stayed at, straight up. A bonus is that you are likely to meet people from around the world there too! And the management is awesome, too! I was pleasantly surprised. I recommend... More
