I should have reviewed this place a while back. If management has stayed the same over the last few years, then please read this review. I ended up booking two nights here with my young son (age 4) but ONLY because the hotels in the city were overbooked and I was unable to go to my original hotel due to...

I stayed in the apartment owned and rented by Kiev-sky backpackers. Although lacking in any luxury items the apartment itself was very warm and secure. It afforded a cheap, clean and secure base from which to explore Kiev. It may be useful to know that the hostel organises trips to Chernobyl etc. which when you don't speak the language is...

The hostel is very central, but thats probably the only positive thing with it. The hostel is an apartment with two rooms and a small kitchen where the staff sits surfing the internet. The first room have 5 beds and expect no privacy. To reach the second room you have to walk trough the first... The second room have no...

We stayed here a couple of nights in 2008. We had been promised a private room but it turned out to be a room with no lock in a flat. One of the beds instantly broke when we sat down upon it. When we confronted the very muscular Scandinavian owner with the issue and wanted to discuss a discount he...

We booked a "private room with ensuite bathroom" but private isn't really accurate when there's no lock and the owner keeps walking in with knocking, and the ensuite was entirely fictional. The owner was very threatening and made us pay extra on top of a cancellation fee when we had to leave early. Lots of notices and rules and an...

The hostel was in a convenient location, a ten minute walk from the train station, but was pretty convenient in terms of the city as a whole. Kiev is a bit spread out, but the hostel was easy to reach and easy for access to the city. In terms of a place to stay, the hostel was clean and secure,...

This is one of the very few hostels in Kiev, but, despite the location near the train station, it was not justified to overcharge us$30 a night in a dorm (6 beds in a very small place), with unconfortable beds (no mattress but thin foam). The staff was nice and the owner is kind with the guest, but it was...
