Awesome place to stay in Lviv! Not far from Rynok square, great soviet interior, atmosphere and good administrators will not leave you indifferent. Clean rooms, nice view from windows on an old Lviv architecture. Love it!

We found this hostel last minute and they were nice to let us stay, but after we saw the mattresses we changed our minds. In a 6-bed room, all of the mattresses were dirty. Some were dirty around the edges, lined with black spots, others had giant brown splatters on the side and the bottom. Not something that could be... More

Hello, thanks for your review, I'm just coming from the hostels after your review to check what was going on, and I personally checked all the matrasses and bed linen, and can't understand what you are talking about, because all the matrasses are new, and we always use covers. Plus I would like to know who was at the reception... More

If you're looking for a nice hostel in Lviv, look no further. It was our second stay in this hostel, and for sure not last! The staff is friendly, the rooms are nice and clean, the localisation is awesome-heart of the city! Prices are acceptable even for broke students. I love it! :-)

Rooms in minimalystic style, friendly stuff, great view, very close to city center - all you just ever wanted. Nights might be noisy beacuse of active nightlife in city center. They have diffrent types of rooms, even with double bed, and its all more like communal flat then hostel, really in Soviet style. Recommend for friends journey.

Location perfect just on top of the old town square. Dorms are of good standard but only one bathroom for a number of dorms. The staff is outstanding (helpful, speaks good English, keeps the place clean, etc). The girl named Ola was specially helpful and was a real nice person to meet. If all guesthouse had staff like this

We had unforgettable time in Ukraine, in Lviv and of course in this hostel! Me and my friends were in this city for the first time, so it was very helpful that receptionist Ivan (Hi!;-)) helped us with all information in which we were needed! Mostly hostel clean, comfortable and cosy! As well an ideal hostel for partying!

The hostel has a good atmosphere and the staff friendly and helpful. However I am doing my first review ever as there are major security concerns here and I don't think the hostel is interested in addressing them. Hopefully with this review they will improve security so that other tourists do not lose belongings. I was robbed twice while at... More
