“Great talks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

Girls gave you attention if needed this and they left you alone when you needed. Great place - I didn't expect such nice atmosphere - everytime being in Kiev I will stay there. What else - it was very close everywhere

Room Tip: there is no swimming pool but I said excellent in the survey, coz if they would have swimming pool...

Great hostel. Perfect location to explore this unbelievable city with such friendly staff. The rooms are clean and spacious and the kitchen is free to use. I stayed here in a cold and dangerous time for Kiev, but i felt warm and safe.

The girls did a very good job always being attentive to all the guest. Jenbt made me Ukrainian tea which it was delicious. ... I think that since so many of us are seating on the couch with our socks on since we have to take our shoes off I think the need to do something to keep them odor free.

Loved this hostel. Wonderful staff, always clean and comfortable, plenty of bathrooms and enough space to be comfortable. Full kitchen is available for guests to use and the location is great for seeing the city. What's not to love?

Myself and three friends spent three nights at Dream Story in early November; we couldn't have had a better time. The staff were warm, friendly, accommodating, and more than helpful—they were more than happy to provide restaurant recommendations, arrange tours, order taxis, or simply draw out on maps what we should see while in Kiev. Their warmth was yet another instance of the warmth of Kiev. Rooms are large, comfortable, and well laid out—the line for the shower got a bit line one of the days, but that's to be expected in a small hostel. Location is also great, right near a metro stop which quickly got us anywhere in the city; if you prefer to walk, it's central location makes for an ideal part to debark from around the city. Overall excellent experience!

Stayed for 2 nights again this year to visit Chernobyl (again) with some different people. Cannot fault the place. Had the private twin room this time round which is relatively small but not uncomfortable. The hostel has had some redecoration done to it over the previous year which has only improved what was a perfectly fine place to stay originally. Lift is still as crazy as ever... wouldn't recommend more than 2 people using it at once. Still providing free Wi-Fi throughout, still the same friendly, helpful staff and still the same atmosphere. Will no doubt stay here again if I happen to visit Ukraine a third time!

I spent one night in this place - I was attending an event nearby in the sports stadium and the location was very convenient. The subway station is around 200m away, the hostel is on a busy shopping street with plenty of restaurants (ton of street noise though, forget sleeping with an open window).

The hostel is well-run and clean, the rooms aren't too big, but if you're staying short-term this is not a problem, there's free wifi and a great lounge with a big TV and a ton of people always hanging out.

Definitely a nice, friendly and welcoming place in Kiev.
