TIU Kreschatik is a quiet and peaceful hostel right in the heart of Kiev.
We’re situated on the city main street Kreschatik exactly next to the Independence Square. This area is always the centre of all main events, performances and free concerts. Can the location be any better?
Just within a minute walk from the hostel you will find a variety of tourist attractions, cafés, bars, restaurants, shops - yes, it's all here!
There’s no hidden extras - what you book is what you pay!
Our hostel consists of one 10-bed dorm, one private room, a common room, bathroom, toilet and a fully equipped kitchen guests can prepare food in. It is a bright place with big windows in every room. We have air-conditioning and fly-screens in our dorms, so no bug bites while you are sleeping.
Our common room has a plasma TV, DVD player and English TV programs. We have a safe in which you can leave your valuables and there are convenience lockers in the dorm.
Our staff are all fluent in English, Russian and Ukrainian.
We can arrange tours to Chernobyl (no less than 14 days notice is a must), transfers to and from the airport, AK-47 shooting and BRDM vehicle driving. Just ask us!
If you wish to travel further through Ukraine after your stay with us in Kiev, we can recommend nice and safe hostels in other cities of the country.
Please note: we’re not a party hostel but a place to have a good quiet rest after a tiresome trip or a long day exploring our wonderful city. Stag parties are not welcome.
Peace Corps and other volunteer programs participants, we appreciate your effort in our country and are happy to offer you a discount while staying with us: 30% off the current regular price! Please inquire upon your arrival about the discounted prices.
Please note that we are NOT a sex-tourist friendly hostel - if you are coming for easy women and cheap booze, you’d better find another place. As already mentioned above, stag parties are not welcome - please choose to stay and party somewhere else. We have a zero-tolerance policy against bad, drunken behaviour and bad language towards other guests or members of the staff.
We can provide stamped booking confirmation letters for your visa support free of charge (please inform us at least two days in advance).
We have fire equipment.

DirectionsShow MapHide Map
FROM THE CENTRAL TRAIN STATION:
If you arrive to the train station after midnight, taxi will be probably your best choice. The regular price to get from there to our hostel is 40 UAH. Do not let yourself get ripped off, paying anything significantly more than that.
If you arrive to the train station before midnight though, you may take the metro. The Vokzal'na metro station is 100 meters to the left from the train station main entrance. Walk in there, buy a token per person, go down the escalator and take the right-hand train direction. Go to the 3rd stop from Vokzal'na - the Kreschatik station (i.e. pass the Universitet station, then Teatral'na and finally exit on Kreschatik).
Once out of the train, turn left, go up the escalator and you will come out to the Kreschatik street - the city main street. Cross it, turn to the right and walk ahead for about 5 minutes towards the Independence Square (Maidan Nezalezhnosti).
Cross the square underground, leave it behind and walk for another 5 minutes in the direction of a big arch you will see ahead. Keep watching for the number 8 street sign (you can see a photo of it among our hostel profile pictures).
Walk through the passage into the inner court, go till the end of it and you will see a reddish colored door on the right hand.
There is a code lock on the door, the code is 269 (you should press all three buttons at the same time). Enter the building, go up to the 4th floor and you will see a door on the left with the Hostelworld logo - here you are, welcome!
FROM THE BORYSPIL AIRPORT:
There are several ways to get to our hostel from the Boryspil airport. The easiest one - yet the priciest as well, - is on taxi: we can arrange a taxi pickup for you or you can go to the taxi office directly outside the arrivals lounge and there you should be able to get a taxi to our hostel.
Our taxi pickup service will cost 210 UAH. This should be also a normal price if you decide to take one of the taxis waiting outside the airport building - you should not let them charge you more.
There is also a shuttle bus service from the airport to the Central Train Station. Those buses leave every 10-15 minutes and cost around 40 UAH (about 3 euros); they run at night as well. Once on the train station, please follow the instructions above.
FROM THE CENTRAL BUS STATION:
Go to the Demiivska metro station (right next to the bus station), take the metro and go to the Maidan Nezalezhnosti station (i.e. Independence Square). Once out of the metro on the Independence Square, please follow the instructions above.
