“Not the best. It is really cold in the rooms.”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Here everything is around the money, even towels and key for locker. I felt quite awkward, because while I was taking shower a lady (I guess she was a cleaning woman) started to clean shower cabins :| also I couldn't go to the WC because she was cleaning it too.
I was freezing while sleeping, in the morning I woke up with a cold. That was terrible :(
Also, the kitchen seemed to be spaceless, I mean there was so NOT much space.
In rest, it was ok, for example the sheets, the floor, the smart door, etc.
Good luck travelers.

We liked this place so much, we came back before flying home!

The location here is incredibly good, a short walk to St Andrew's church, and also within walking distance to Kreschatik and Maidan - there is also a Metro Station with immense links just a 3 minute walk away.

The welcome when we arrived was amazingly good, and on the second visit it was incredibly refreshing to be recognized and greeted by name. The staff here were absolutely fantastic, so friendly and they all spoke very good English.

Our room was perfectly well presented, and impeccably clean. The bathroom facilities were modern and well maintained. My only slight criticism is that the mattress in room 31 had probably seen better days.

The place has a great party atmosphere, however you can hear people in the corridors occasionally, although this really didn't detract from the overall experience.

Overall this was great value for money, and I will certainly remember this place for next year when I am in Kiev. Maryna, the manager, and her team are doing an exceptionally good job here.

Room Tip: We stayed in the double room with shower facilities, which were incredibly well presented, however t...

Great location very near city centre and metro station. Dream house was very clean and security was also great. This hostel outperforms some hotels for standards such as location, cleanliness and friendliness of staff. The front desk staff were amazing, very friendly willing to help and spoke perfect English. I emailed dream house to arrange a tour to Chernobyl before staying all information required was provided to me fast and this was booked on trust despite me not being able to prepay which was normally required. Beds were also comfortable and again hotel standard. There was no issue with availability, cleanlinesses and presentation of the shared bathroom facilities.

From the moment Dream house was booked I was emailed welcome information and after leaving was thanked in email for my custom something large chains fail to do. Thank you for making a great trip. I would not hesitate to return or recommend Dream House and Kiev which was also amazing. Thank you especially to the front desk staff.J

Room Tip: All were amazing and clean

Staff are helpful, rooms are tidy, location is excellent.

Single rooms are kinda small for being a lot of time in these. Sleeping is pretty fine though. It is perfect if you're spending most of the time outdoors that should be it in case of Kiev: lots of attractive places to visit.

I've stayed in a few hostels this year and this one is by far the best! The staff are lovely; the rooms are impeccably tidy; you feel safe as there is a coded door to the rooms and then you need a card key to get in your room. The lockers are big and sturdy and most importantly, the beds are really comfy! There is an adjoining café/restaurant with cheap but great quality food and drink. I found no flaws with this hostel!

The hostel is wonderful! We stayed in a double room with private bathroom. The room is under the roof with roof windows, interior is very nice, the room is clean.

I was in love with location and atmosphere of the hostel. The stuff is nice. The restaurant on the first floor offers very tasty meals. Me and my friends had breakfast outside in the courtyard.

I would definitely recommend this hostel to everybody. My next Kiev holidays i will spend here again!
