NEVER GO THERE!!! We booked this hostel, I phoned them to confirm that everything was allright a few days before we came, but when we arrived late in the evening, the owner was very rude, did not want to settle us, told us lies and stupid things, so we left. The reception was dirty and stinky, with everything very old... More

Can,t even describe it! the entrance has a disgusting cigarette smell though in Ukraine it is not allowed to smoke indoors. There is no tip on the website that some rooms has no windows, and not warned by the person at the desk. The kitchen is very dirty, there is only one and old cup, kettle doesn't work, terrible smell... More

The staff are very friendly, helpful and it's good value for money but some of the rooms have leaking bathrooms (we were given a private 'superior double en-suite' but the carpet was wet and fusty smell from leaking shower...but they moved us to a better room that was nice). The kitchen facilities are terrible, barely possible to cook, very limited... More

Nice place to crash. Kind of compact but very interesting. Has a big entrance hall with comfortable couches and the beds are not bad although the shower cabin is in the room (behind the wall :D) and the room air gets moist. Front desk is really nice and speak amazing english ;)

We were around 40 people staying for 2 nights in this hostel. A friend's iPod was stolen out of our locked room. During that day somebody of the staff was in our room because the toilet paper was refilled. And when we wanted to check out on our last day, they told us that a bed was broken. In fact... More

An IPod from one of us was stolen from a locked room. And one of us was forced to pay 200 euros for a broken piece of... More

We stayed in the Sun Hotel for a few days and it was very pleasant. Hotel's staff was very friendly and helpful. It seems many guests are coming back there so there's a good chance to meet somebody who can share a lot of information about Lviv and Ukraine with first-time visitors like us. It's also very cheap and they... More
