I've stayed in well over 100 hostels in 50 different countries, and the Dream House hostel definitely ranks among the very best! Hands down the place to stay if you are a backpacker or budget traveler considering coming to Kiev!
It's clean, modern, with a great location a few minutes away from the metro. The hostel is tucked in a small courtyard, so the more "secluded" spot prevents noise from the busy street from bothering guests. Located on the famous Andriyivskyy Uzviz, the Dream House is within walking distance to most of the top tourist attractions in Kiev, or only a short metro ride away.
They also have their own café/restaurant, Café Druzi, which appears to be quite popular with local students and seems to serve as their hang out spot. The menu is varied and affordable, and the food is tasty. Their breakfast options are also quite good and easy on the wallet.
I spent 5 nights in a 4-bed dorm. It was spacious and the bed very comfortable. There are two lockers per room (you leave a deposit for the key), so it's up to whoever gets there first and asks for one. Each bed comes with its own power outlet and lamp, which is convenient. The room was clean thoroughly every 2 days and they even changed my sheets and left me a candy.
But it's the staff that really makes a difference at this hostel. The Dream Girls working at the reception desk are friendly and knowledgeable and help you make the most of your stay!
Highly recommended for anyone traveling to the Ukrainian capital! =)
