I have never seen dirtiest place in whole my life. Bathrooms, floors, walls, etc, have not seen water and brush for ages. Shame on you City Center Hostel!
Location is very good, on the Maidan Square.
ohh gosh...really to tell? 2 toilets for 100dreds of People,soldiers,students, beggars, homelss,artists, mice and rats, children and mothers, lonely elder and younger men- stolen mirrors, for free kakerlakis, no kitchen but dirty Cups and broken dishes, one Sofa to sit in common room, Elevator like for prisoners, neonlight instead of cosy ambiance...but after all, what an adventure. for the experienced hostellover! forgotten laundry, ransacked losers, alcoholics and extremists,..and so on and on
the nice and always smiling Girls at the reception desk-despite all chaos around
It was noisy at night because of another people. Сigarett smoke coms from the corridor into the room.
Ignorant, unprofessional staff, very dirty (bed linens, room, corridor - everything), no kitchen - a tiny table with three dirty cups and plates and a broken teapot, very dirty all around. Some unadequate guests/owners (?) - drink, shout, curse. The buiding itself is also very neglected. Plus, I was staying in a single room with no window - and there was no ventilation either! The TV didn't work, but that was the least important drawback. Don't advise anyone to stay there. Kiev has lots of amazing hostels.
Right in Maidan Nezalezhnosti Square.
Pictures does not represent the place at all. We spent an horrible night. The room was incredibly small, there was no space enough for two people standing at the same time. Walls, floor, matresses were stained and dirty. In the reception we found 5 friends of the owner smoking and eating, and when we come back at night they were drunk and aggressive. We travel often around the world, but even worst indian youth hostel is a comfortable place compared to this. Maybe worst hostel in the world, compliments.
Horrible, disgusting place located in the heart of city center.
Rooms are dirty and dont look like photos.
Wi-Fi fffk problem & silence
Nice girls :)
I booked a single room based on the pictures provided and ended up with a miniscule closet! Pictures were not representative of the actual room. Bed and bedclothes were not very nice. Noisy guests fighting in the early hours in the morning. Checked out early and went somewhere else.
Good location with friendly staff
no kitchen. i don't have time to finish 200 characters. no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
location. i don't have time to finish 200 characters. yes , yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.
The hostel was not clean overall, especially bathroom facilities are very poor and dirty. I stayed there two nights and avoided shaving. Dorm bed is overcrowded by old local men and the room is smelly. The elevator does not work all the time and the hostel is on 7th floor.
Good location, close to the city center and Metro. Staff can speak English.
I made a mistake. Before staying at city center hostel in kiev, I stayed at sg1 hostel in Prague. I submitted a critical review of sg1, thinking I was reviewing city center. sg1 was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful ... city center was a dump and the staff I met were grumpy and unhelpful. I can find no place on the site to fix my mistake. if a human site administrator sees this, please fix. thank you
Other than the location, this hostel really has nothing going for it. The staff is very unattentive and they tried to talk me out of the three person private room that I had reserved and paid for just because we were two people. Our room was dirty and the girl did not put the sheets on the bed for us. On our last day, we saw a couple thousand leggers in our room. If you really plan on staying outside the hostel and only using it for sleeping quarters I guess its not so bad (for those not afraid of bugs) but if not, I definitely would recommend searching for other accommodations.
Dorms were crowded, perhaps a private room would be nicer. People used to smoke in the public areas. Couldn't get an empty locker for myself. Russian music playing all the time in the lobby.
Location couldn't be better. Price is fair (cheap by European standards). No critical downsides (but smoking guests). No curfew, used to come back after 2am.
Only one bathroom for all the rooms. Someone used a washing maschine during the night (1-2am) and staff didn't react (usually in hostels staff is more open and helpful, here they seemed distant). Bathroom a bit dirty.
Location, just next to the main square (Maidan). Wifi working with no problems.
Unfriendly staff. Moldy and cold shower.
Very good location on the Maïdan Square.
Staff was not very friendly and sometimes they made quite a lot of noise (loud phone calls, loud conversations, ignoring the doorbell, etc.)
Good location, good wifi, English speaking staff
There was no kitchen, just a small place with some cups and teapot - so it could be a bit of a problem when you stay longer than a night. Room was not so clean, but if you want just crash for the night, it's ok.
Location is perfect - just the way I wanted. Room was nice and colorful, though I booked it with a balcony, and eventually get without it, but it turned out fine. I liked the staff, very helpful.
No A/C in room, no towels, thin walls
Close to maiden, clean room, cheap
Staff little to no English. Booked a double room - single ocupancy. Upon arrival my room was not ready. Was moved to another room and asked to leave it an hour later to go to a single room...Even a cheap place shoudl have the very basics covered. Without the Booking.com reservation they would not even talk to me. Some roms have no windows, be aware of that when going in summer. Very poor wifi. One has to go close to the reception desk to get a connection and there is no ventilation, very humid and it stinks. Had a dead cockroach in my room...
Location right on Maidan is the one of two things that makes the place a reasonable choice. The other one is the very low price.
Staff wasn't always available. They slept on the job. Absence of tea. Coffee was paid.
Location. Decent price.
excellent location, good quality of the interior, comfortable, vary nice and helpful stuff
Very friendly staff. Perfect for the money. As it is very cheap, it also is very simple.
