We are the most centrally located hostel in Chernivtsi opposite the famous blue Town Hall and by far the easiest hostel to find, just look for the blue neon sign on the main street above the Unicredit bank

The original, best and only true backpacker hostel in Chernivtsi, We are the only hostel WITH A COMMON ROOM. But dont just take our word for it look for yourself. Currently only 4 hostels in Ukraine have a Top rated logo on hostel world .com and we are 1 of them, Check out our sister hostels in Kiev and Odessa for quality and ratings.

The code on the front door is 1 and 7 and pressed at the same time!

We can not and will not be beaten on price and value.

We have NO check in or check out time! so if your train arrives at 8 am you are welcome to come in and make breakfast and if you are leaving on the midnight train all guests are welcome to take a shower or use the computers before the train leaves. Our kitchen and common room are accessible 24/7 and beds are vacated at 11am and available from midday.

OUR COMMON ROOM is huge with the latest 52in smart TV so we can stream any movie program or sporting event from around the world. We have a wonderful beer fridge with around 400 bottles of chilled beers from all areound Ukraine and the world, so chilling out watching the match and having a cold beer is never a problem. If you dont have your own laptop its not a problem we have a couple of the latest HP widescreen computers for our guests to use.

THE KITCHEN at our hostel is probably the most equipted kitchen of any hostel in Ukraine. Our kitchen has a commercial fryer, slow cooker, mixer, meat grinder, bread maker, steam cooker, health/contact grill, rice cooker, microwave and 12 various sized pots from 1.5 ltr up to 20 ltr (so when the whole hostel decides to cook together its not a problem

OUR PRIVATE ROOM comes with TV & DVD ,a chest of draws, hanging wardrobe, reading light, a ceiling fan, chairs and rugs!
We list this because some private room accomodation in Chernivtsi only consists of a bed in corner of the room.
