We spent three nights in a dorm room in this hostel in April and it was truly awful. We've stayed in a lot of dorm rooms and in a lot of hostels, so we weren't expecting The Ritz, but this was really the lowest of the low. The dorm room was in a large basement with no windows and little... More

The place is nice and quiet in a courtyard. The staff is nice and helful. The room was ok, but a bit noisy because of the bathroom behind the wall. The point of this hostel is the location : 7 min walk to the Bolchoï and metro. 15min walk to the Kremlin and 4 stations to the central train station.... More

Nice people, nice place and very central! Kitchen for your meal, tea and coffee for free, internet, lot of good places around, and maybe one of the cheaper place in Moscow. Love it. Will come again, I hope during my trip on Moscow.

Very nice hostel, with and excellent location close to the Kremlin in Moscow. The people from the desk was very friendly and helpful. The hostel was very quiet, excellent to rest after long walks through Moscow

I was in there for three days with other three people. The position very very good and the hostel is very clean, quite and hospitable... unfortunately we happened a room with out windows and there isn't a good change of air... The staff was very willing and the room was at bargain (1000 rubli/night per person, room for 4 person).

Well, of course you have to remember that this is a HOSTEL. But this place is really good for its class. Things I DID not like: in the shared shower a few times there was not hot water, since all the water from heating devices was used by other guests; no microwave in the kitchen, only electric stove; the first...

My bf and I stayed here for 2 nights after a huge mix-up with another hostel who gave our room away. That hostel drove us to Shelter Hostel and we immediately felt like we were putting them out...as though our presence annoyed them. The staff speaks hardly any English and never once said hello to us in passing or offered... More
