The staff at the hostel is wonderful, I have all great things to say about every single one of them. Literally in the center of Lviv. Very comfortable beds, clean warm showers, nice sofa in the hang out area, nice kitchen coffee and tea.

Old City Hostel is the best hostel I`ve ever been. I was there 3 times and in my future visits to Lviv I`m sure that I`ll stay there.There are comfortable conditions and location is really great. I like hostel`s stuff very much. People there are nice and friendly, they allways can give you an advice where to go and what to see)

Very convenient location.
Our room (Comfort Double Room ) had windows facing the courtyard, and it was quiet, though there can be noise for room facing the street.
Room was clean and had all necessary facilities (bed, wardrobe, hot-drink facilities). No TV, but for me it's rather a plus :)
Friendly staff.
Shared shower is working fine, no problems with hot water.
May become quite noisy when a lot of guests are in. Though, it's a peculiarity of any hostel I've seen :)

Strangely I wasn't expecting to stay at the Old City Hostel Lviv. I had a one day stay in Lviv, having taken a night train from Warsaw, with another night train to Kiev. Therefore, I was treating Lviv as a brief day stop over. Unfortunately what I didn't realise was how little sleep I got. I desperately needed to crash somewhere for a couple of hours.

The hostel was located in the centre of Lviv and was very easy to find. I arrived at about 9 am, and explained that I didn't need a room for the night, more just for the afternoon. The staff were very understanding and offered me a bed at half rate (bonus!).

The room was a large mixed dorm with very comfortable bunk beds. The shower facilities were the standard you would expect, with warm running water. The hostel had a small lounge area and small kitchen area that appeared to be well stocked with utensils. Free wi-fi was easy to connect to and the signal was very good.

Despite my very short stay, the hostel was clean and tidy, the staff were very friendly and the location was excellent. I would definitely stay again and for much longer!

I stayed 9 days in this hostel and I can strongly suggest to choose this hostel. All staff were really friendly and helpful. Rooms, kitchen, WCs and showers were very clean. Furnitures were really new and good. Wi-fi was good. You can feel like in your home. Also this hostel is not near the center, it is located IN THE MIDDLE OF CITY CENTER. And the prices are very low for these facilities.
So, If you plan to go to Lviv, you don't need to think another place to stay. Trust me, go to Old City Hostel, and enjoy it :)
