It's an ordinary hostel in the central district of Kiev. Really nice personnel, they are very responsive and friendly. They also have a free wi-fi on both floors, which is really convenient. The bathing zone is OK, cause I always got to be the first one who uses it. The only daisadvantage is their rule to take off your shoes,...

This hostel is modern and very clean. The facilities are top notch and it's very comfortable. It is also walking distance to many attractions and amenities in Kyiv. The staff are amazing - very friendly and helpful (the ones I met speak good English). I will definitely stay there again.

I stayed in ZigZag hostel with friends in August. It was a mixed experience. Firstly on Kiev, I would definitely recommend visiting - we were there for two days/one night, and I wish I'd spent longer as there is a lot to see. Don't be put off by the news headlines - it is a great place to visit, and...

The hostel is quite new (started 2012 I think), not too big, not too small. Helpful staff. Clean, has a large kitchen for cooking. Is 50m south of Shevchenko park and close to Kreshatik Blvd, and abt 100m west of a subway entrance, so quite practical. Can recommend it
