The Australian owner of The Kosmonaut has indeed boldly gone where no Aussie has gone before. In fact, we don't know of any fellow from foreign shores who's set up a place like this in Lviv. The Kosmonaut deserves a medal for guts alone. As far as the basics go, Kosmonaut comes up trumps on all fronts. Location is superb, just around the corner from the sweeping Svobody Avenue. Accommodation wise, the Kosmonaut has dormitories for ten or six, plus some more private options. Couples can choose the private apartment with en suite bathroom, fridge and microwave, and there's also a private room with two singles and shared bathroom. Breakfast is included in the overall price and washing machines are available. All in all a breakthrough for Lviv - we're keeping fingers crossed that the Kosmonaut continues to go from strength to strength.

we tried to book Kosmonaut , but there was no answer , and we stayed in Roxelana Hostel . It was great experience in Roxelana Hostel , they build new showers , bathrooms , each guest has its own safety deposite box , storage box , wi-fi , free breakfast. great breath taking castle ! very nice clean hostel.
we came to Lwiw with our folkgroup,and younger dancers with tutors r live in this hostel.There was great, becouse it leave near the centrum and we had near to all the city. The workers r very nice and helpful.
thanks for super time in Lviv;p
Stayed at kosmonaut with my 5 children and 2 grandkids, the staff are very helpfull and speak good english. it was freezing when we arrived in ukraine, but the kos was lovely and warm, stayed for 3 days and would reccomend it.
The atmosphere at the Kos is fabulous. I intended to stay for around 3 days, it ended up that I stayed 7 times longer. Yes! 7 times longer, (3 weeks) the owner is Australian and full of fun, he will tell you the best places to go in the city. If for any reason heís not around, the 24 hour receptions speaks very good English, and are truly happy to be of help. I have got to say ìThe Kosmonautî is home from home. You will feel very safe at the Kos and the location is seconds away from all the main attractions. In other words youíre on top of everything youíll need. I would recommend a restaurant, but I can not remember the name, or I should say I can not spell it. The owner, Eddy will tell you. (Itís on the same side of the road as the Kos, about 20 meters, on the corner) All the locals go to this place. A substantial meal will cost you less than 30 Ukraine, less than £3. A beer 40p/50 cents. Ukraine people are the best I have come across, you will not be disappointed. Once you visit this place you will remember it all your days. Happy travelling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I stayed here for a couple of nights on my first visit to Lviv. I absolutely loved it and cannot wait to go back. Owner and all staff were friendly and helpful and the place has a very welcoming atmosphere. Good facilities, info, location, etc, etc. In fact, location is so good I even managed to find my way back to it on my own when I got separated from my friend after a night out on the 'horilka'. If I can find it, anyone can! Andy, London
As a frequent traveler to Ukraine and Poland, the Cosmonaut is a very welcome place. It is the best value and choice for budget stay on Lviv. It is central as listed with friendly, multi-lingual staff who make your stay great. There is information on all to see and do in Lviv and beyond plus assistance for further travel and lodging. Bathrooms are also great and very nice for hostels. Come see Lviv before all start to come to make it crowded and expensive like Praha and Krakow have become. There are many places to eat, drink and be merry in the area also. Enjoy!
This was my first time in Lviv, and finding the Kos was so easy... (i usually get lost). Amazingly close to the center, which is super. I cant emphasize enough - location location location. At first glance, looking from the street #8, I was a little concerned, also going up the stairs wasnt too welcoming.. then bam! Inside its buzzling with life at the Kos. fun atmosphere. Nice receptionist, immediately I mingled with fellow travellers and shared war stories... I arrived at 6AM at Lviv, and headed to Kos around 8. There was breakfast there, so I ate. very warm atmosphere. BTW, room #4 (4Beds)is the closest to kitchen, so if you want sleep during day, forget that rooom.=) Everyone was helpful, and yes, i would go back.
