“A great place to stay in Kiev”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

Very clean and welcoming hostel in the heart of Kiev. The place is really clean - sheets seem to be changed every second day (no additional pay). There is no shortage of bathroom facilities, although you may have to climb/go down a floor, and they are also clean and supplied with the necessary stuff. The staff is really friendly and helpful with check-in details and advice for going around. Wi-fi connection is decent bandwidth and stable and there are also some 3-4 laptops for general use. The bar is good too - the food is really nice, but prices are not that good, compared to nearby places. The street the hostel itself is located is probably one of the best places to get some traditional Ukrainian souvenirs and gifts. There is a 24/7 grocery shop with an exchange desk inside two minutes away from the hostel and a lot of places to eat and drink. It is within easy reach from Zhuliany International Airport (just get on the 302 minibus outside of terminal A and go to Kontraktova Ploshta - last stop) and also close to the subway. Definitely a recommended place!

Room Tip: I stayed on ground floor next to the "lobby" but I think rooms on second floor are better...

When I arrived in Kiev I wasn't sure what to expect to from the hostel. I've traveled quite a bit around the world but this was the first stop on my E. Europe trek (from Ukraine to Finland via Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia) this past winter, so I went in with an open mind and got way more than I expected. The Dream House Hostel has an incredible and helpful staff, an awesome bar/diner that serves the best veal burger I have ever eaten abroad, and the beer flows for a cheap price throughout the day. The rooms were great and the location is prime for exploring everything Kiev has to offer.

I stayed here for two weeks and didn't regret a single moment. Very clean for a hostel this big, also the staff is really friendly. Has a nice bar with good food, but it is non-smoking (so is the terrace). Some say this is the best hostel in Kyiv, I believe them :). If I go back to Kyiv, I'll return to Dream House hostel for sure.

I have been to this hostel and it works very well. The bar inside the hostel is very good. They serve good breakfast. The bed of the hostel is very very comfortable. They are very boring with check in time. I had to wait for 2h 15 min. Good hostel overall.

We usually stay in Kiev for a few days when returning from our expedition/research in the country. Our accomm is normally booked by our director from the UK, usually in a grotty run-down hostel. Thankfully, this year, they cocked-up the booking and they did not have enough space for some people, so a few were directed to "Dream House". Thank God they did, or we might never have come across it. The location is perfect. It's at the bottom of the hill where St Andrew's is located,and also where the flea market/street market is, and very close to Independence Sq. The hostel is through an archway and in a nice, quiet courtyard. It's a quaint but modern place with a lovely restaurant (cheap, cheerful and very good food, also a great place to drink and chill-out). The hostel itself is nicely decorated. The rooms themselves are a bit on the small size and, with 6 people in the room, it is a bit of a squeeze (4 beds would be better and more comfortable). That said, the beds are comfortable and clean. There are also numerous showers on each floor, so you shouldn't need to wait for one. The staff are very friendly and helpful (the girls are wonderful, particularly the restaurant girls!). It really is a lovely little place and, as to cost, it was the same price as the "Fawlty Towers" where we'd previously stayed. I will definitely stay here when we return next year.

We had a wonderful time at this hostel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It's on a great location in one of the oldest parts of the centre. Kiev stole my heart and I will definitely come back to this town and this hostel.

First of all the location! Five stepfoot from nabokov museum a short walk to santa sophia and golden domes and cobblestone street with outdoors caffees artists etc. Short walk to independence sq. Then the staff, great girls at the reception will help you. I stayed in a one person bedroom downstairs, perfect. But please, PLEASE install a toilet downstairs too!
