We had been looking forward to going to Kyiv for a while now. Because quite frankly it's a bit of an unknown. We checked out Hostel International and found two hostels in Kyiv. For location and price we chose this one. We emailed back and forth with the manager and got a pretty decent deal. Looking at the pictures, it looked good. Like a decent hostel.

When we got there... It was an apartment. On the eighth floor. And a lift that felt like to would and could collapse at any moment, and did not fit all five of us with backpacks. What I am saying is that we might have sweated a little bit.

So yeah, as mentioned previously. It's an apartment, which someone lives in as well.

When we got there we were greeted by a very nervous receptionist, with little command of English. But enough to get by and she was extremely keen to be helpful. She even phoned her daughter to use as a translator.

The room itself was pretty decent, but with no lock. No keys for the lockers either. The beds were comfy, the bedding and towels were clean and decent. The kitchen was functional, the shower worked. What was a little odd was that the toilet was separate with no sink, so you had to hope that no one was in the shower after your toilet trip.

But all in all, it's a good hostel, in a decent location for a good price. There are two metro stations within 15 minutes walk in either direction.

The owner, borys is very kind and helpful. I came during the Champions League final, there was not much accommodation left in Kyiv. Sadly the prices were escalated at the time due to the final....supply & demand I guess. But £4 a night to £50 a night is quite the mark up.

It's more like a guesthouse, with bunkbeds, you are staying with a family, who have children and live in the place. It can be difficult to find the hostel, but Borys can collect you from the airport if you want.

Very comfortable beds, very helpful supervisor.
Excellent prior booking communication. Very genuine people.. Our stay couldn't be better!
No curfew as such - just be polite and ask supervisor in advance to be ready to let you in late at night.
It isn't a luxury place, but definitely worth staying in: for such a modest rent you can get an illuminating experience and get a grasp of how do simple people in Ukraine live.

The room was a bit small, but that is probably my only complaint. The location is great, the owner picked us up from the train station in the morning and even helped us go to another hotel when he was not able to extend our booking, the staff is nice, the atmosphere is relaxed. The price was also very good. Bonus - plenty of cats and kittens around the building!

A bit far from city center- about 30 minutes by metro, but great 24-hour Retro-Soviet diner across the street and the friendly staff and cleanliness make it well worth a stay in beautiful Kiev.
English speaking and willing to use google translate!
