Dirty room and sheets, everywhere are insects, 24h/7 noise in that place. Only one positive thing - the location. It's cheap but I don't recommend that place anyone. I... More

Hole of criminals. Staff wasn't interested in anything, she slept all day. Dirty room and sheets. Noise all night and people just put on the lights on in the middle of the night and start talking loud. Only positive thing was the location. It's cheap but terrible, never again !!!

If you look for a perfect spot for a low price, go for it! Please keep in mind, enter this hostel on your own risk. Everything else is crap! Towels with blood. Dirty bathroom. No clean sheets. Constant noise. Only saw someone of the staff at the checking-in, after that I didn't see anybody for 3 days!

Ночью спать не дают, запах винта везде, не советую там остановливаться! Not good place to stay, look for something else. It is very cheep because of bad reception and not honest people in there! In place like Kiev it is better to pay more (renting a flat, doba.ua is good site to find a flat), giving money to people who... More

The lift was broken, so having to walk up the stairs we saw 3 piles of human feces (poop), used condoms, as it seems they let homeless people stay in their stairs (not safe!). At 3am people were also in stairs yelling and arguing. We told person at front desk and reply was "yeah"... So on top of unsafe environment,... More

The location is awesome, for a city trip to Kiev this is possibly the best location. The facilities are very good value for money. You shouldn't expect 3 star facilities clearly. The staff is ultra- helpful. They helped me plan my day, called for information. The building is quite smelly, though the hostel is clean. Also the shower isn't good.

Having booked into a private room with a view of Maidan Square and received email confirmation, we contacted the hostel a day early to let them know we would be arriving early in the morning (6:30). We asked if the reception would be open and whether we could leave our bags whilst waiting to check in, looking forward to the... More

Me&my friends booked 4-person room - not so big though for 4 people - and was a tiny bit dirty on the floor. But we've decided to loose a 4*guest attitude when we saw a view from a big window - amazing sight for a whole Maidan Nezalezhnosti, especially at night. One more thing - bathrooms are tiny, you have... More

Hi, I have stayed in the City Center Hostel and would not recommend. I booked for three nights and was promised that my reservation for a single room was confirmed.
