Old City Hostel

Top choice hostel in Lviv
Image by Booking.com

Occupying two floors of an elegantly fading tenement just steps from pl Rynok, this expertly run hostel, with period features and views of the Shevchenko statue from the wrap-around balcony, has long established itself as the city's best. Fluff-free dorms hold four to eight beds, shower queues are unheard of, sturdy lockers keep your stuff safe and there's a well-equipped kitchen.
