Please do not misunderstand me. I am not against inexpensive accommodation at all but what I sometimes found here at VT is an extreme rock-bottom low-budget ideology regarding services and accommodation in Kiev. Listen, folks, what you ask is what you will get! Of course you can pay almost nothing for a dry place under a roof but is this actually what you are looking for? Look, you are ready to pay 1,000 dollars or more to be taken for an adventure in a country that you expect to be 'absolutely inexpensive', you consider Ukraine being a poor developing country - And consequently people should be happy and thankful just because you bring a dollar? No, believe me, reality will teach you a lesson! At home you are aware that you have to pay for a clean and accurate place but you are not willing to pay the adequate price here? Fine, here you are: Go and ask the babushkas for a room for 10 dollars a night or less. You may be lucky - but in a different way you will have expected: You will receive your 'low budget adventure'. Please remember, if you are greedy wanting a clean room and a restroom or a great service for slightly more than nothing then go and live with nothing. If you want something acceptable, then pay acceptable.

I have been contacted a number of times regarding cheap and cheaper and even more cheaper accommodation in Kiev. Well, dear boys and girls, Kiev is a modern million city; if you cannot afford to pay a reasonable price for your holiday room or apartment in such a place then better stay at home. Or sleep under the bridges.

Please do also consult my accommodation clues. Comments are welcome of course.
