Kyiv, Ukraine @ GoKiev.info

Kiev / Kyiv..... one of the greatest cities in Europe. Honore de Balzac, the famous French novelist, wrote: "Petersburg is a young city, Moscow is an ancient city, but Kyiv is the eternal city. It is a Northern Rome."

Welcome to GoKiev.info - Accommodation: Youth Hostels.

    There are not so many Youth hostels in Kyiv and they are all not like the ones in the West. Hostel System by itself is not new fro Ukraine, but hostels for tourists or Youth hostels are a pretty recent innovation (the first appeared in 2003). They just now started to develop and more or less comply with the European standards.

     Hostels of the Soviet type are widely spread in Ukraine and Kyiv and meant for the students, workers and their families. They look like the regular 5 to 9 storied building, more often without balconies. Typically they have a "corridor" structure, when rooms go both sides of the long corridor. There is usually one bathroom and a kitchen per floor. Some other hostels have a "block" structure, when there's one bathroom per block of two or three rooms. Maybe that is the reason why the newly reated Youth hostels look somewhere in between a hostel and a regular hotel. Sometimes they are just rennovated and rebuilt from the Soviet type hostels or old Soviet hotels.

     The prices for the bed are also quite high, taking into the account cost / quality definitions and comaring with the Eusropean hostels.
     But still, this sphere of the Ukrainian hospitality industry just started to develop and needs more time and experience until it becomes on a level or at least close to the European one.
