Very nice place. The rooms are specious, the staff very helpful and friendly and there is a very nice common room. The attitude of the staff makes this a great place for solo travellers! They really live with their guests. Only downside is it's location (30min walking from center).

Had a great time at this hostel. Chilled people there for a good time. Aricio and his team are fantastic. Very helpful and quick to solve any problems i had by email or in person. Went on the Chernobyl tour and shooting range through the hostel and were both great tours. Thanks so much guys!

I loved this hostel!! The friendly atmosphere, the beautiful common area and especially the incredible stuff made me want to go back again and again. This place is run by young people, ready to help you and make you feel like home. I felt more like I was hosted in an apartment full of friends and less in a hostel.

Great social atmosphere here and the staff is incredible! You'll feel right at home in this hostel. The ONLY reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the location. It's a good 20 minute walk from the metro and about 27 minutes from the city center. You can take buses, and I do recommend them, or... More

Despite the current war that is raging in East Ukraine and the consequent diminish of guests influx, the hostel provides a great treatment, making you feel like you're a guest from a private home. Good premises decorated with old Soviet posters. Staff was always smiling, friendly and willing to chat and conversate. Highly reccomendable to email them before and ask... More

This place was great, the hosts had plenty of information to see the sights around the city. Also they organized the Chernobyl trip for me which was very interesting to visit. The rooms were clean and warm during winter. Also the location was excellent with metro and bus stops close by. I felt like family when I was there, it... More

I really loved this place! Aricio and Joanna are really chill and nice, and do their best to let you have a great expetience. The hostel is simple but cosy. Clean and everyone is chill. The central arena is a place to meet, and also cosy. They've arranged chernobyl for us, and gave some good tips where to go and... More

I recently stayed in Kiev at this hostel and I must say it was one of my most positive hostel experiences yet. The staff, Aricio and Joanna, are extremely helpful and welcoming hosts. I was apprehensive about visiting the city as a solo traveller but they did all they could to reassure before I arrived and also to help me... More

Really nice place with helpful staff and in a great location. They can help organize everything you would need including tours to Chernobyl, without ripping you off. To give full disclosure it is on 6th floor without a lift, but this seems to be fairly standard for the region.
