It is really hard to rate a hostel like this. It is not big European hostel with 5 floors. It small and cozy place. Nice common room with kitchen where you can meet other travelers and hang out together. the rooms are seperated from common room so its fine if you want to sleep early. There is a cool bar down the street, called Doctor's bar. you can serve yourself injection or share a flaming helmet with your friends. Nice location not far from tye train station and main city spots. The staff Aricio, Maricka and Larisa are really good people full of great tips for Kiev and Ukraine. They will help you to buy a train ticket, book you a great hostel in other cities ect. There is no reception desk but you can always find them easily around "the house". I wish everybody could enjoy their time in Ukraine as I did. This hostel is a good choice!
