So this hostel is a little difficult to get to if you are chancing your luck on public transport from the airport. A mixture of bus and underground alongside limited english makes this journey an adventurous one. Once at the hostel you will find it is clean, warm and very comfy. The hostel staff are very friendly and very beautiful...

The staff is very friendly and even more helpfull. Nothing was too much to ask. They've arranged transfer, excursions and guides for us. We've even ordered breakfast which the staff buy and prepare themselves for a good price. Metro, shops, bars and restaurants are within easy reach on foot from the hostel. Rooms and beds are clean, although the beds...

This hostel is a big apartment in the long narrow block of flats, located not actually in the city center, but very close to a Metro station. The interior is very nice, spacious and clean. The decoration is space–oriented; I adored the helmets and the space photos all over the rooms. There are many toilets and bathrooms; no queues. I...

The hostel is named after Yuri Gagarin, the first human to journey into outer space, and the hostel has many photos and other wall hangings to promote this theme. The hostel is one of the cleanest I've seen in Kiev, while also being one of the least expensive. The rooms are standard size, crowded for two people but enough space...

“We stayed in a double room with twin beds. The room is small, but the beds are very comfortable and spacious. Of the minuses only poor soundproofing. The rooms are all equally comfortable, but it is better to choose a single or double room.”
