- It seemed nice at first. I booked direct through the hostel website but didn't receive an email confirmation, Neither did I get a receipt when I payed in full the first day. The deposit for the key for the locker was 50 UAH. People were walking around the dorm and corridor to the toilets in just their underwear. Clothes were dried on horses in the 12 bed dorm.
When I was staying there were rough looking guys who acted like Gang members who seemed to be getting along well with the younger female staff members, and got wasted every night and were swearing in the dorm and common area; guys not to be messed with. Could not have an extra lie in if I needed it; the guys would be talking loudly to these girls whenever they decided to get up. Dormitory door never seemed to be closed; often returned and found the door to top floor wide open. Could not smoke in the balcony beside kitchen despite the fact that it was never used by anyone. Drugs were allowed however. Had to sleep in the common lounge to get away from noise in the dorms.
