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!

“All the rooms seemed to be nice....but I would recommend the 8 bed dorm (that's where I stayed) or one of the 4 bed dorms because they don't face the road!”
