Dream house is a clean, simple, cheap accommodation in the heart of Kyiv's touristic quarter. It is actually located in Andrey's descent, walking distance from interesting, beautiful places.
I stayed in a private room with a bathroom en-suit. Everything was working ok and clean.
Do note: the private rooms are in the fourth floor without elevator.
Downstairs there is a small cafe/restaurant which is pleasant, but requires you to reserve place for the evening, as it is popular.

Located in the historic part of Kyiv (Andriivskiy uzviz - one of the oldest streets in the city) near Kontraktova Square (Metro Station: Kontraktova), Dream House Hostel is the largest and most modern hostel in the capital city. The hostel can accommodate more than 100 guests due to the state-of-the -art facilities on offer. One interesting fact about this hostel is that it is the only hostel in Kyiv that has its own bar - Druzi Cafe. The mutli-lingual staff are always more than willing to help out a traveller in need (the staff at the hostel speak Ukrainian, Russian and English). Furthermore, the staff are able to organise fun parties and events for you so you will not feel alone. This is one of the best hostels in the region.

Room Tip: Choose the top floor rooms in order to escape the noise.

The best hostel I have ever stayed in.

The staff or 'Dream Girls' are fantastic and really seem to enjoy their work. They are knowledgable about Kiev and other cities in the Ukraine and are willing to offer advice and tips on where to go and what to do, however if you just fancy a chat to pass some time, they will also accommodate you.

The rooms are spacious, well equipped with individual lamps/plug sockets for every bed and free lockers. Fresh, clean sheets are provided as are towels, the later for a small deposit. The beds are extremely comfortable and despite mine being against the wall of an adjoining room, there was little to no noise transfer between rooms. All in all a good nights sleep.

The hostel it's self has been newly renovated to a high standared and is well looked after by maintainence and cleaning staff who appear to always be doing something. It is well equipped with a cafe/bar, I did not sample the offerings, however it was always busy and I heard no complaints. There is ample communal space to relaxed in with music played throughout the hostel giving it a relaxed, yet but fun vibe. There is fast free wifi available throughout, laptops with Internet access are also free along with a nice foosball table.

The many bathrooms and showers are kept very clean and stocked with paper, not common in all hostels, sometimes it's the small things that count.

The kitchen is well equipped, though the addition of an oven would be nice. There are, however a couple of microwaves, hobs, fridge/freezer, a toaster and kettle as well as ample storage, a large table for 10+, an LCD with loads of channels and large bean bags to hang out on. Free tea is also available on request,

If I had to be picky I would say the addition of hand towels, paper towels or an eco dryer in the toilets would be nice, a foosball that is actually round would also make me smile.

The location is great, 5 minutes walk from a metro station, which in turn is just two stops from independance square and at the bottom of the historical Andrew's descent, what more could you ask for?

Finally the price was great, I stayed here with my girlfriend, 3 nights in a 6 bed dorm cost us £45 total. It is possible to find cheaper, but not much and you certainly will not find better. They also offer discounts on long term stays for those language teachers out there.

In other words, If Carlsberg made hostels, Dream house would be it.

Room Tip: Pick what you like, no matter how many beds in the dorm they are spacious enough not to feel overcrowded.

Me and my friend Enis spend 11 nights in Dream House Hostel in Kiev. Everything was absolutely spectacular. It is superbly clean and safe place with new interior. No doubt,hostel has a really friendly atmosphere inside like a family. Girls at reception help every guest with their needs. They are pretty experienced,knowledgeable and amazingly energetic. They respond you in any subject at anytime that you would like to know and discover.

Location of hostel just at the heart of Kiev with no more than few minutes walking distance to metro stop,main attractions,24-hour open shop and exchange office. Moreover,you have Druzi Cafe(extremely a cozy ambience) where you can have snacks,various beverages and unfortunately limited main courses which is not highly important who stay in short time period.

I am really thankful to Marina-Manager of Hostel who had created such an extraordinary team and atmosphere in a professional way.You are doing good work girls. Keep it up! I will definitely come back again!

The staff all went out their way to make sure I had a great time in the hostel as well as during my stay in Kyiv. The beds were comfortable with warm duvets and the bathrooms were clean. Would definitely recommend this hostel.
