We are the best located hostel in L'viv, at no. 8 Tomashivskoho St. (Томашівського, 4), only 500 meters from the old town square, four minutes from the Mitskevych Monument and 2 km from the train station!

DIRECTIONS:

We advise you firstly to print our map in the photos section. Its in Cyrillic and Latin. With our central location, you can also find our street in all guidebooks.

From the TRAIN STATION, you can take the number 1 or 9 tram to Petra Doroshenka st. (Дорошенка), then walk back, turn left at Bankivska st., then take your first right and left again, on Lista St. Then turn your first right and again first left, on Chaikovskoho St. The next left is Tomashivskoho. Building no. 4 is on the left hand side about 40 meters down. Enter the door, take the stairs to the second floor, and choose the left door! Please note: trams cost 1,5 Ukrainian Hryvnia.

WALKING from the TRAIN STATION is quite easy and scenic too, its only 2.6 km and takes about 35 minutes. Exit the train station, walk straight down Chernivetska St., turn left on to Horodotska, and right before the St. Elizabety church, turn right on Bandery St., walk about a kilometer and on the end a little bit left on Kopernyka. On the traffic lights turn right on Stefanyka St. and take the second left, Dudayeva. Then turn left on Tomashivskoho, and the second building on the right its the Kosmonaut!

NOTE: Tram tickets (kvytok) are purchased on board from the driver and must be validated!

From the main BUS STATION, take Marshootka (Small Bus for 1.75 UAH) number 31 to the center. Simply print our map and indicate our location to the driver or ask for Shevchenko Monument which is on the main boulevard called Prospect Svobody.

TAXIS from the train station are approximately 30 UAH and from the bus station 40 UAH. Negotiate the price prior to departure!

From the AIRPORT take trolley bus number 9 to Ivan Franko University, turn back on Stefanyka st. and take second left, Dudayeva. Then turn left on Tomashivskoho, and the second building on the right its the Kosmonaut!

Alternatively may take a taxi which should cost approximately 40 to 50 UAH. If taking a taxi, please remember to agree the prices PRIOR to departure!

See you at The Kosmonaut!
