Very nice hostel with good location and cheap price. It is also pretty small as it has only two dorms and one private room but their common area and balcony are quite sizeable. This place definitely has unique atmosphere and superb staff and great service. It is a perfect place for social packbackers and others who are used to hostels.

Cozy and clean hostel with unique interior with fireplace, real balroom with mirrors and beautiful local people working there. They make a home parties by fireplace, where you can meet lots of locals and feel yourself included into local life. Should also mention a huge balcony for partying and sunbathing:)

Roots hostel has a very unique vibe. I had the opportunity to meet a bunch of local artists and musicians, which made the experience truly unique. The hostel is also very well located, within a short 5min walk to Maidan. The value for money is also great. Sasha, one of the administrators, is a fantastic person and really welcomed me.

The hosts were great, felt comfortable throughout my stay. The high ceiling rooms, spacious balcony, bathroom, kitchen maintained daily. The atmosphere was lively with the Kiev Fire Theater practicing their routines, without the fire of course. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would recommend Kiev Roots to anyone travelling to Kiev.

Hostel is located in the center of the city — best for travellers who want to check beauty of Kiev. And hostel is great for the ones, who used to play and train every day: big hall with mirrors is a godsend! It't definately not calm and quite place, so if you like to sleep until midday and stay alone...
