“Good friends and good location!”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

This is a relaxed old Soviet Style place in the centre of the city! Very cool people.. No hassles!
Kick back! Not many tourist in the winter.. You can walk everywhere in the centre from here without the need for buses or taxis.. If you want to relax, walk and sink into a city for a few weeks. This is a good place!

stayed there for almost 2 weeks, and what can i say - i had a blast! all of the staff were extremely helpful, especially vladimir. this hostel is situated right in the center of the center of lvov, just around the corner from center square. grocery store's right across the street, and another one about 30 seconds away down the street. for such a location the prices were very decent, place was clean, and the atmosphere was awesome. true soviet style in every way, down to the neighbour who'd come around asking to borrow some sugar. if you want to relax for a bit do your thing, noone will bother you. likewise, if you want to hang out with others go out and stuff, no problem either. not much else i can say - there you have it. ps- this hostel is also part of 3 or 4 other theme hostels, so if you want to change up your surroundings every few days, they can reserve one for you on the spot.

We had unforgettable time in Ukraine, in Lviv and of course in this hostel! Me and my friends were in this city for the first time, so it was very helpful that receptionist Ivan (Hi!;-)) helped us with all information in which we were needed! Mostly hostel clean, comfortable and cosy! As well an ideal hostel for partying!

The hostel has a good atmosphere and the staff friendly and helpful. However I am doing my first review ever as there are major security concerns here and I don't think the hostel is interested in addressing them. Hopefully with this review they will improve security so that other tourists do not lose belongings. I was robbed twice while at the hostel. Amongst other things I lost my camera and three months worth of photos. I was also told of other recent thefts.
The lockers are weak and insecure and the first time I was robbed my locker was forced open. This would not be difficult to do, so please do not leave valuables in the locker. I should have moved out but I was silly in assuming the thief was a tourist who had already left. Then things were taken from my locker again. This time there was no sign of entry and the locker was still locked. So the thief either picked the lock or more likely had a spare key.
Though the hostel had security cameras they showed no interest in going through the CCTV footage or doing anything in fact. I was told of other recent thefts from the dorms so they could at least have analysed if a person or persons had been present on all these occasions.
If you have valuables please be very careful of staying here.

Hello, I'm really sorry for the situation we had. But anyway thanks for your review, we have installed more modern suirveillance system, as well we have changed all the lockers in the room, and have set up and additional safe on the reception, now the lockers are more secure. Also just wanted to let you know, than we have immediately contacted police after your incident and they are still working on it searching for the giulty, unfortunatelly there are guests that are proffesional thieves, and that happens to all the hostels, so the only thing that we can do is increase security and be aware. I'm sorry again for the situation and hope that it will never happen again. Thanks for your information again.
