Liked: the owners! They are very friendly people, always at your disposal, answering any questions you have. Even if they are not in a hostel, they are available via phone or email. The location is great although I did find it quite a challenge to get there:( I guess it was because of the late hours and the fact there are no lampposts on the street.

Liked: The managers of this property are the friendliest people you will ever meet. They are quick to help you with any of your travel plans. They are especially excited to tell you about all the amazing sites that you can visit from Sevastopol.

Disliked: Everything is positive about this hostel minus one small item. There is only one bathroom. If you have a full hostel of 12 people, taking showers, brushing teeth, and going to the toilet becomes more of an issue.

Liked: A neat and cozy place in a charming and relaxed historical neighborhood, a few minutes beautiful walk away from Sevastopol's very center. Also Dolphin is very well-equipped and owners Marina and Yuriy are really among the kindest and most helpful people we've met in Ukraine. They gave us a lot advice and tips where-to-go-what-to-see in&outside the city and we could always to turn to them with any kind of questions. With its calm and romantic setting I highly recommend Dolphin to couples and because its great location (10 min walk+bus to the main bus/train stations) it also might be a good place to stay while discovering S/W-Crimea. We simply loved it and looking forward to return : )

Liked: The two beds room was in fact in a separate appartment with two rooms. Very great, not many people to share the bathroom and kitchen with.

Disliked: Nothing. But be ready to call the owners when you arrive, there might be noone at the main hostel when you arrive.

Liked: It is located right in the city center and it is the best hostel you can find in Ukraine. It's air-conditioned, clean, spacy and it is in the beautiful city. If I went to Ukraine again, I'd go to this hostel for sure and I would spend more days in Sevastopol. It is definetely worth it.

Disliked: There is nothing you can dislike.

13 August 2010 Daniel would recommend this property

Liked: We booked two rooms for 4 people, and it happened that the apartment had only 2 rooms, so basically we got a full apt, a place to park the car just in the middle of the city. Yuri, the owner of the place is a super guy, I really appreciated his help. This was probably the best place we stayed in Ukraine, highly recommended!
