One Step Hostel has all the basics: beds, two functioning (if dirty) showers and toilets, a washing machine, internet — so if you're just looking for a cheap place to crash for a couple of nights in the capital, it will do the trick, but if you're in the market for a hostel with even the faintest semblance of atmosphere,...

I was taken to this hostel because the hostel I originally booked ( Really Central Hostel) is currently under renovation. Very surprising that they still accept bookings in spite of the renovation going on as of July 2013. I arrived Really Central in the early morning but due to the situation above, I was told to come back to Really... More

I travelled with a group of friends to Kiev and stayed at this hostel. It had been difficult to find it by ourselves, but the staff was friendly enough to come out and help us in. The hostel is a large apartment splitted into many rooms. There's two toilets and two showers. We ordered four small rooms but got two... More

I stayed here for two nights and the room I stayed in looked nothing like the photographs either on Trip Advisor or Hostel World. I booked a triple rooms as I was staying with two friends but was put in dormitory with 4 bunk beds (with no other guests) with no sheets and only a flimsy duvet. The hostel is... More

The good: the staff are really friendly, very clean bathroom and beds, free wifi, spacious dorm with plugs. The bad: very hard to find, small common area/kitchen area. I would definitely recommend this place because the staff are very helpful and its location is in the city center. I had a great time here! As for directions, the hostel on... More

Good location with 3 metro stations in close proximity, but a bit of a walk up a hill when you have a big rucksack. Kiev is a big city so things look close on the map, but are actually a fair old walk. That said you can still walk from the hotel to see many sights in town, great views... More

The front door is not lockable and there is no reception to keep an eye on comings and goings. The resident organizer of the pub crawls was shirtless all the time smoking. A hot plate in the hallway does not make a kitchen and there's no lounge at all. Worst is the staff sleeps in spare beds in the dorm... More

I can't say enough good things about One Step. The staff were amazingly nice, and the guests were friendly and respectful. Free coffee, tea, and crackers, and wifi. Microwave and hotplate including cooking utensils are available for use. Everything is clean and well-kept. Very warm and welcoming atmosphere. The location is excellent. Yes, it's hard to find the place but... More

We had a private triple room (shared bathroom) and were pleasantly surprised by the standard of accommodation. Staff were very knowledgable and helpful. Excellent price and location in the centre of Kiev. The hostel also organised our pick up from Kiev Boryspil Airport at a very reasonable rate. The only drawback is that there is no real common room facility... More
