Very good welcome,helpful, good location, clean. Thank you very munch. Thierry.
Hostel Smile is a great choice if you are travelling on a budget. Friendly environment, close to everything, nice breakfast.
Perfect location: near to ATM, subway, delicious breakfast. Close to city centre and Maidan square. Very helpful stuff (Anna). Strongly recommended.
Only one toilet shared with shower.
Perfect location and a very good standard for a hostel. The host is very helpful and cooks nice breakfast.
Car noise from the street
Anna is AMAZING!! This is by far one of the true gems of places I have stayed. Ideal location, very great staff, awesome apartment, and really no downside at all. This place is great. One of the best stays ever. Oh, Anna is great. Super helpful, very knowledgeable and really went out of her way to make the stay easy.
Unfortunately, I booked another hotel/apartment during this trip. More expensive. Stupid me for not just staying at Smile.
The place was very clean, cosy, right in the city center, spacious rooms and it all comes with a tasty breakfast that is prepared by dear young lady called Ana/Nasta. And actually she is the biggest advatange of this accommodation. She is good hearted soul that will help you with anything. She gives you a warm welcome, a good advise what to do and see in the city or where to go out in the evening. For us, she was simply THE BEST!!!
I am being hones, we loved the place so much that I can not find a simple thing against this flat/hostel.
This is an apartment converted to hostel where each bedroom is a room, so is like staying in a flat. The girl owning the hostel is super-friendly. The hostel is nicely decorated and very clean. The area is safe and there is a cafe in the corner and a small supermarket. Quite close to the city center. Blini for breakfast!
I didn't miss it, but there is no living room.
More like private rooms in an apartment rather than a dorm hostel (there was no bunk bed). Price was the cheapest for private rooms near city centre. Breakfast was either omelette or cheese dumpling, both of which were above average. Hostess very friendly and even helped me to solve a problem with my newly-bought local SIM card.
I visited the city on April 2014. In part because the tv news, some foreign people is scared because the Euromaidan demonstrations. Of course, this is far of the reality. Kiev is one of the safest cities that I ever visited ( I traveled more than fourty countries in the last forty years). Said that, the maidan square is quite dirty now, and there are still people dressed as soldiers and living in tents. About the hostel: In the city center. Ten minutes walk from train station or one minute from metro. Easy to find. Wi-fi works perfectly. They give me a lot of indications to visit the city (places to see, where to eat, etc). I had a great stay, thanks!
very helpfull staff, good localization in a few minutes walk you get to the some most important monuments
Location, excellent staff, breakfest incl. in a room price, excellent value for it's price! Strongly recommended.
Ana was amazing, friendly and happy to welcome people from abroad. She also speaks very well English and always ready to help, advice and propose what to visit and see in Kiev and in the country. Very nice location, close to everything, 10 minutes walking to St Sophia. In Hotel Smile, you will be introduced to Ukrainian culture in the most smooth and happy way. 10/10
The location and the staff are great! Highly recommended!
It is a neat and tidy hostel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. You feel like at home in this place. Highly recommended.
We liked everything, staff was very helpful and gave very useful tips for the sightseeing. The rooms, the bathroom and the kitchen was vety clean. Perfect location!
Location, living, staff, breakfasts... Everything was great!
excellent friendly staff, good center location, clean quiet room. I received immediately Kiev map with tips where to go, many thanks:.) I will definitely book again while in Kiev:)
All other was tolerable.
The blanket sheet (only that!!) was not fresh.
Отлийный хостел. Расположен в пешей доступности от цетра города, так же в 2х минутах ходьбы есть станция метро Университетская. Замечательный администратор Настя все рассказала, показала, подсказала и указала на карте пеший туристический маршрут по основным достопримечательностям. Все чисто, аккуратно, уютно, сделан хороший ремонт. Из огромный плюсов бесплатный wi-fi, ночное заселение, завтрак, возможность оставить вещи после выселения.
The receptionist lady was very helpful and nice. She help us a lot during our stay in Kiev. She also ordered a taxi for us which saved us a lot of money. Hostel itself is a flat transformed into hostel but very nice, very clean and confortable. The beds are one of the most confortable ones that we have slept in a hostel
Food for breakfast, location, very polite and responsive staff, big balcony, kitchen, bathroom, clenness everywhere
lack of slippers for large quantity of guests
Very good location. Very friendly accommodating staff. Very clean and spacious for price. Shared bathroom was also very clean. Laundry (cheap) facilities were available. Very close to metro and sights.
Be sure and call to get access code to door before you arrive. On site staff does not speak English very well but will call manager who does and communication is easier than you think. Just prepare in advance. This is a great bargain.
The location was excellent. The host is kind and helpful. Don't be alarmed by any language barrier. His wife speaks English.
It was a bit difficult to access the bathroom as there is only one. Patience is a must.
the location is perfect, room itself is nice and comfortable
the hostel is really hard to find, ask for the directions beforehand. it was very cold in the room but thanks to the air con it got better.
