Good value for money, friendly staff, cosy interior and good facilities. One draw back is the distance from the metro station, 15+ mins going up and down steep roads. If you are in Kiev for a few days then a central location might be more convenient. This said you can get an

Had the best time at this hostel. It's split over 2 flats with rooms upstairs and the large and well-equipped common room/kitchen downstairs. They sell beer and water cheaply, and there are 2 large supermarkets nearby. The staff are really friendly and organise Chernobyl tours

Also I thought here people review staying, not if you volunteered better in other countries as you advertise, I remember your phrase: "doesn’t matter anyway since I found work in a better hostel, in a better country anyway" Seems like Ukraine is not a country that liked you
