So this hostel is a little difficult to get to if you are chancing your luck on public transport from the airport. A mixture of bus and underground alongside limited english makes this journey an adventurous one. Once at the hostel you will find it is clean, warm and very comfy. The hostel staff are very friendly and very beautiful... More

The staff is very friendly and even more helpfull. Nothing was too much to ask. They've arranged transfer, excursions and guides for us. We've even ordered breakfast which the staff buy and prepare themselves for a good price. Metro, shops, bars and restaurants are within easy reach on foot from the hostel. Rooms and beds are clean, although the beds... More

This hostel is a big apartment in the long narrow block of flats, located not actually in the city center, but very close to a Metro station. The interior is very nice, spacious and clean. The decoration is space–oriented; I adored the helmets and the space photos all over the rooms. There are many toilets and bathrooms; no queues. I... More
