I was visiting Ukraine (as I do every year since 2004) with my wife and kids to Ternopil, and for our latest visit, rather than go via Kyiv, Wizzair had started direct flights from the UK to Lviv, which was very handy for us. Coming back I decided to make use of the chance to use the new routes to get a early morning flight from Lviv to Wroclaw in Poland, but for a 9am flight it was far to early to set off from Ternopil at a good time, so I decided to book a hotel for the night in Lviv. While I was there the Lviv Jazz Festival was happening, so accommodation was proving hard, but I managed to get a room booked in Cossacks Hostel. Excellent little hostel (which actually has a more low-key hotel feel about it) located just a stones throw from the Opera Hose and from the Town Hall Square (with its many bars and restaurants) it certainly met all my needs. A little tricky to find, as its not well sign posted (there is another Hostel about 3 or 4 doors up which is better signed posted and I actually made the mistake of going there first) with just a little notice board on the door side saying this is the building. Staff are excellent and do a great job of making you feel welcome and keep the place really tidy. My room was basic, but clean and met my requirements. Will most certanly stay here again when passing through Lviv again.

Really well located hostel in Lviv, less than a minute from the central square. I was located in the dorm room which was quite spacious but I did find that the room would get uncomfortably hot for most of the day. The staff, beds and the toilet facilities were all excellent. The hostel doesn't have any printing facilities but a printing shop called fotonova is located just round the corner and charges 1 hyrvnia per page. This is particularly handy if you need to print off an airline ticket! All in all Cossacks is a pretty decent hostel.

Located closed to the main city attractions, 2nd floor of the bldg with friendly & helpful staff, comfortable bed, clean beddings & free tea/coffee. The only downside: only 1 toilet, 2 bathrooms. Special thanks to Vasil.

Friendly, helpful staff, and a special thanks to Wasyl for getting me squared away with my bus ticket to Poland. Wifi was generally fast and reliable. Hostel location, a notch below excellent. Complimentary coffee and tea was nice. Suggested improvements: Faster client response time: 2 emails by me 4 days prior to my arrival requesting taxi/tram info were not responded to until I was already enroute and off-grid. Ultimately I phoned the hostel the night before my arrival to retrieve the taxi/tram info. The mattress on my single room bed needs to be replaced, a low 2 on a 1-10 scale. That sucker is on life support, guys. Add towels (or paper towels) to both bathrooms for guests to dry their hands after washing them. Cossacks should have the ability to print a doc, airline ticket, or whatever, even if it has to charge for it. Right now, no printer available.

Location is simply fantastic. The Main Square is just behind the corner. Great value for money. I traveled in low season and I had almost the whole apartment just for myself. Everything is clean and the heating and hot water are working. Room is very quiet and convenient. Staff is super nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

- Location is great and prices also. - bathrooms, toilets are small, but it depends on floor which you are staying - Rooms with windows on the square may be noisy in the summer nights - there was no AC in our room (small double)

We stayed in the double room next to the lobby, it was very spacious with a desk, closet, queen bed and large window. Staff was friendly and spoke english. They helped us book an early-morning taxi to the train station for a good price! The location is the best part of the hostel, its a 2-minute walk from all of the best restaurants and sites in Lviv. Everything was clean, our only complaints are that the towels are small, there is only one toilet for the whole first floor (max 16 people), and the atmosphere was at times oriented towards families or ukrainian tourists coming for the weekend. There was little time spent in the small common area. Overall we had a great stay and the location is worth everything in Lviv!

It is a centrally located hostel. The staff was helpful and arranged a taxi for our airport transportation. However, I think there are many things to improve about this hostel. We stayed in an average double room. Both the room and batrooms / toilets were not clean at all. It was obvious that a regular cleaning was not done. There was a constant noise coming from a generator (or another device) of the next apartment and during our three-day stay in this hostel, the noise never stopped and that was making sleeping impossible. When we asked about it, the staff said they can not do anything about it. The staff working here just seems like a few guys hanging out in an apartment without an understanding of a hostel management. I would definitely not prefer this hostel for the next time.

Stayed there on several occasions on my visit to Lviv. Chose this hostel simply because it's located right next to the heart of Lviv, Rynok Square. Very helpful staff and very reasonable prices. The staff let me do my laundry at no cost and let me leave my luggage for a day after I checked out of the hostel. Will stay there every time I go to Lviv.

This hostel is very centrally located but I would definetely stay away from this place. The furniture is very old and the room was dirty. Condition of the toilets and bath is pathetic. The bathing booth was about to collapse. Hot water didn't work properly. More importantly, there is a very high level of buzzing sound in the apartment which makes it practically impossible to sleep at nights. The sound comes from a small yard machinery and they can't turn it off, it works 24/7. The windows don't close properly and it gets cold at night and doesn't provide isolation from the sound. There is no fresh air either. The staff is uninterested with the hostel. They acted like a couple of buddies who were just hanging out in the apartment. I wouldn't suggest this place.
