Why Not! is a great place. If you search for a place where you can find friendly and helpful people, this is it. You have to go to try a real adventure then you have to ask this guys about the great outdoors in Kiev.

We spent 2 night there, in 8ppl room. No problem with the bathroom, very helpful stuff - they give all info you need and can order a taxi (then make sure it's there, even in the middle of the night). A short walk to the centre. Good instructions on the website how to find the hostel. WiFi available.

“All the rooms seemed to be nice....but I would recommend the 8 bed dorm (that's where I stayed) or one of the 4 bed dorms because they don't face the road!”
