“Great hostel with great staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

I stayed for 5 nights in this hostel. As many people claimed i need to confess that the staff is really helpful, friendly and speaks english well. Rooms and toilets are clean enough. There are some regulations such as interdiction of alcohol, prostitution, drugs etc. which makes the place more in quality. reasonable priced breakfast is satisfactory. The only problem you may face is that your noisy neighbours. Because of the rooms are too close to each other you can hear every inch of noise in the near room. Centered location helps you to reach everywhere easily. If you dont want to stucked by taxies can get help from the staff about it. This is very useful especially if you want to reach airport or far distanced locations. Lastly i would like to thank Yura for cold beers and delicious breakfast. Price appeal makes dream hostel great place to stay in Kiev.

This is without a doubt the best hostel I've ever stayed at. There isn't a single aspect in which dream house hostel doesn't excel. It has a great location surrounded by many historic sites and good restaurants, is amazingly clean and well equipped, comes with a great cafe which is the perfect hub to plan your trips through Kiev, has a wonderful atmosphere and lots of well organized activities, but the one thing that lifts this hostel far above any other is its amazing staff. The receptionists are angelic ladies whose beauty and helpfulness is only matched by their kindness and charm. They all speak English fluently and are some of the most kind-hearted people on the planet. Whatever problem you might encounter on your travels, they will do their best to help (Galya, Natasha, Kate, Alina, Maryna, Ayran and Irina, thank you for everything. I will sorely miss all the fun times, photo shoots and foosball matches, you are all such amazingly awesome people). This hostel is quite simply excellent, truly the stuff of dreams.

Great hostel. I arrived here after travelling in Russia for a month and staying in small crammed apartments hostels, this place is a bliss, it's thanks to this hostel that I extended my stay in Kiev. It's well located and very spacious with plenty of showers and toilets and even a place to sit outside. It's centrally located, not far from the metro and there is a arts and crafts market in the street during the weekend. It's close to a 24/7 supermarket and restaurants in all price ranges. Most sights are withing walking distance. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a laundry service (although a dryer would be a welcome improvement). Staff is fluent in English and helpful. Free wifi. Quality bunks with soft matresses and ensuite dorms.

Location of hostel is good. Most of the sights are within walking distance and it is even situated on one of the city sights (Andriyivskyy Usviz itself is a very nice street and especially on weekends there are lots of arts and crafts street vendors). Many restaurants and a very good supermarket are on 2-3 minutes walking distance. Best restaurants (on my opinion) include Porter Bar for beers and one Ukrainian food self service restaurant (the one with red and white logos). Metro station is 5 minutes away on foot.
Staff was very friendly and helpful, and they spoke excellent English.
We stayed in a private ensuite room; it had air-con, tv and comfortable bed. It was a new room and clean. I did not know whether it was supposed to be cleaned every day during our stay (3 nights) or not, but adding toilet paper and taking out trash on daily basis would have been a plus.
There is a cafe downstairs, which serves breakfast for 25 hr, but as breakfast seemed to be only coffee, orange juice and two slices of cheese and toast, we ended up having breakfast elsewhere.
Only downside of the hostel is noise: our private room was located between a dorm room and communal shower / toilets and it was really quite noisy, as during all nights we kept waking up several times as someone was either taking a shower or just banging doors in the middle of the night (btw midnight and 7 am).

Like many people I stayed here during the European 2012 football tournament, staying here for 3 nights whilst England played Sweden during the group stage.

First impressions were that it was very new, the car park area directly outside was still being worked on. Inside it was spotless and freshly painted, great staff being helpful speaking perfect English and wanting to help. Nice little reception area, great bar area with sofa's ideal for watching TV or just chilling out. Free internet on brand new laptops.

Rooms were spacious, bunk beds comfortable, bathrooms fresh and clean.

Location was tip top, it's located just out of the way to have that feeling that you are not in a major city, yet only a 2 minute walk to the 24 hour supermarket, 5 mins from the metro, 5 mins the other way to a row of restaurants and a 15/20 minute walk to Independence Square.

If and when I return to Kiev, this would be my first place to think about resting my head.

I've stayed there when visiting Kiev to attend the Euros final. My friends and I booked a 4-bed dorm. The quality of the place of exceptional comparing to my previous hostel experience in other cities I'd travelled to. The service was very courteous and friendly, the rooms was clean as were the bathrooms and restrooms. Highly recommendable place to stay if you visit Kiev, also given its very central (and pretty!) location!

Our stay in Dream House was very good! We had one only bad experience, because we booked a shuttle Airport-Hostel, they said it was ok, but the shuttle wasn't there so we had to take a taxi after calling the hostel. The room was nice (but a little hot), the bathroom was very good and so was the staff and the localization.
Thank you for the stay!
