It was nice place! I met there some interesting nice people and I'm really thankful to reception guys for help and very good mood! I spent there 3 days in an atmosphere of joy, relax and laugh. What I liked: good place, close to underground station, 3 bath/toilet rooms, spacious rooms, cool staff))

I spent 1 whole week at why not. Simply loved it. Very close market, stores, nice restaurants, to the tube station and central Kiev. Very fair price and the staff is really helpful. I actually forgot my phone at their hostel and they sent it to me by mail. Thank you Why Not team! Keep up the good work! Cheers!

If you wanna visit Kiev you should stay in this hostel. Why? Because it's cheap friendly place located almost in the center of this beautiful city. It's opened 24/7 and the hotel staff will always help you.

The hotel staff could speak English which is a good thing and was helpful when we asked questions. Location is not bad, its close to a metro station which is just one station away from the center.

the hostel staff was very helpful and friendly, really 10/10 for that. Unfortunately it was very noisy, because young backpackers especially from Portugal did not keep to the rule to keep quiete after 11 pm.
