This hostel is about people. I find myself talking to other people more often than in other places. Staff is good and helpful. There was minor renovation made lately and now it is even more cozy. Location is good for siteseeing. It is in the center of the city but in quiet place, so you can sleep well.

Several years ago we found this hostel to be excellent. Now, alas, it seems to have become a very expensive boarding house. Almost everybody else there was long term and stayed up late at night together then rushed off to work next day. Also expensive. About 3000 roubles a night - no breakfast

First up, as others have pointed out, the hostel is located in an unmarked, anonymous building. There is no signpost outside whatsoever nor anything on the door buzzer to confirm the presence of the hostel. Once buzzed in, which will have to be the case every single time you enter the premises since there is no key or card-entry system,... More

This is a comfortable and friendly hostel. Everyone makes the effort to chat and engage with one anohter. The hostel itself feels homey and so I think this encourages everyone to be chatty. It is impossible to find, pay close attention to the directions on the website as it DOESN'T HAVE A SIGN outside the building. Which is crazy. Staff... More

I was given a piece of bittersweet chocolate when I checked in. How sweet was that! I stay in the dorm room. The room itself is large and capable to have 3 suitcases to be opened at the same time. The shower room is clean but the bed mattress is a bit old and not that comfy. It would be... More

Chocolate hostel is really a nice hostel. First of all, it's clean. So, i felt comfortable. Staff is also nice and helpful. Since it's not a big hostel, there is more friendly atmosphere with staff and other travelers. They even sometimes serve you pie and some other things. Location is excellent. Close to metro station and the Kremlin. Disadvantage can... More

I really enjoyed my stay in the Chocolate hostel. Its small but cute and cozy. There is a really nice atmosphere in the hostel, you fell more like in a friends place not in the hostel. The good thing about this hostel is that common room is combined with the kitchen and there is a big chance that you will... More

It's a bit hard to find - they're no signage whatsoever. I went into the courtyards several times, and had to ask several times before finding it. It seems a bit old, but relatively well kept up. Staff is decent. Pretty close to Pushkin square - about 5-6 minutes from it.

Ok first of all, this place is a pain in the bum to find. When you leave Tverskaya metro station, it will be the second street to your right. IMMEDIATLEY after the big, fancy Intercontinental hotel. Keep walking down that street.... it looks wrong...but keep walking.... past the park and it's on your left. First impressions upon entering the building... More
