Within 6 hours of arriving my friends sandals were stolen. Then we went up to our room and AC???? Yeah right! It's like 100 degrees. In addition the staff is not very friendly or helpful and the environment is not at all set up for socializing. We are very disappointed.

Though it lacks at sanitarian utilities (one of WCs wasn't especially private) this is nice deal for location, hospital staff and cheap price (less than 20 bucks for a night), many guests are foreigners so it's good for speech practice. Plus good kitchen area.

We were very happy with our stay at Buddy Bear. The staff were very friendly, the hostel was clean with a spacious common room. The price is very good especially in such an expensive city!

Our family of 8 stayed at Buddy Bear Hostel in late May, 2010. We're not seasoned hostel travelers, it was a first for nearly all of us. We have 6 children...ages 9 to 25 and so we're not a particularly simple group to accommodate, but Buddy Bear did it. Hotels in Central Moscow are ridiculously expensive (our group of 8... More

Whenever I'm traveling to another country and I'm staying in a Hotel or in this case a Hostel, I spent days researching on the internet on reviews and feedback from other people that already have been there. Since this Hostel was recently built less than a month there wasn't too much information about it, however while I was doing my... More
