I have to recommend this hostel. Rooms were very clean and staff very friendly indeed. Definitely should go. also very well located. Rooms also had a private toilet on request which can be very difficult to get in hostels.

I'll try to be honest in this review, because the hostel DOES offer guests a 5% discount if they offer positive reviews. My friend and I stayed there in May 2014. PROS: -wonderful location off of Old Arbat Street -they will register you for longer than you stay at their establishment -good prices -room, sheets, towels all clean -quiet, despite... More

Great value for your money at the heart of Moscow on delightful Arbat Street! A real jewel, I tell you. Clean, cute rooms and great staff. Moreover, the place is very quiet. Just what you need in bustling Moscow.

As with most things in Moscow, this place was extremely difficult to find (hint, check the back of the building - it looks like a service entrance). It's very clean, the man at the front desk is extremely helpful and speaks wonderful English. The room was very small, but with comfortable beds.

Got out of metro nearby in the night and searched for more than 30 minutes on Arbat street up and down to find the hotel. Very difficult to find the hotel. Nobody knows where is it. At last found the hotel, climbed up the stairs. When they introduced me the room I was shocked: so narrow room. A bed and... More

The main advantage of this hostel is excellent location - near Old Arbat. The rooms are very small and there was a smell of paint in the hotel when we were staying there (although not in the room itself). It is actually a hostel, so we were not expecting much, even for the price (it is Moscow price after all).... More

Inefficient staff. We lost our flight and had to buy new tickets because the receptionist booked us a taxi for 8.15 and told us that it would only take us 40 minutes to arrive to the airport on a Tuesday morning. Due to traffic it took us 2 and a half hours to arrive to the airport and we lost... More

Writing this review as we are still here, our second night so far, and would like to praise this accommodation. The room was so nice, and the decor was fab. The communal kitchen, although small, did the job perfectly for cooking our breakfasts. The beds are so comfortable, and location wise, is excellent. The guy on reception was ever so... More

We stayed here for 5 nights. The accommodation was booked by our travel company on our trans Siberian adventure. This was by far the worst out of 6 hotels we stayed in across Russia and Mongolia. The room (number 7) was a very tiny double room. You had about a foot around the bed to walk, it made it very... More

We arrived at 5 am off the train, having booked a bed for the night so that we could sleep more, the hotel had double booked so we spent the first 2 hours sitting in the stair well waiting for someone to check out and are still waiting for our refund. They also offer a 5% discount for positive reviews... More
