ZigZag Hostel
Ranked #11 of 408 Speciality Lodging in Kiev
Reviewed 11 August 2013

We stayed in this hostel for three nights and what a pity we couldn't stay longer. Clean rooms, fantastic designed hostel, huge kitchen, lovely common room with tv and bean bags! For that price you can't ask for more. And maybe the most great thing in ZigZag is the staff! very friendly,always helpful!
Thanks!

Fantastic choice for budget travellers. New, clean, spacious rooms with a table and a hanging rack. Ours was upstairs and in the remote corner so there was no noise at all, also with a nice view from the window. We loved the location too - metro was super close, main street (Kreschatik) within 5-10 min walking distance, and the area was very green and nice overall.

We stayed in the ZigZag Hostel for 5 nights (we extended 1 night, because we liked it very much). The place was clean and very comfortable. The people working there were very nice and helpful. As we are travelling by bicycle they also accepted to store them on the balcony which was really great for us. Thank you very much for this nice stay and we can highly recommend it.

The hostel was located on 6th floor. The lift was an old ancient, draggy lift cranking all the way up. The first impression was that it was run down. In the interior, the hostel was spotlessly clean, bright and shinning. It was so fresh and new.The staff were friendly, always willing to help.
The price is very reasonable for the sparkling place to stay. The kitchen was clean and tidy and well kept. The bed was comfortable and the room is very spacious. It is very centrally located, easy to go anywhere by tram or train or bus.
I booked Hihostel but they changed us to this hostel. I accepted the change because after reading the good reviews.I was right and I made the right choice.
I recommend this place to all travellers.

Room Tip: Any room is a good room. The 6 bed dorm is spacious and well ventilated.

I think it was just after the football, so the place felt quiet and like it was missing people!
I say this because it was new, clean, and very well spec'ed out. Perhaps the most modern I've stayed at.
I really enjoyed my short stay- literally, I was only there due to a flight change on my way to Moscow with a Ukraine airline, and it was worth while.
