The website and photos for this place are deceiving. It's nowhere near as nice as it looks. It has the potential but felt more like a rundown homeless shelter! The bathrooms were the worst I've ever experienced and I've had some bad experiences in my time. They were filthy, no hot water and stunk of mildew and dampness. The whole... More

Fabrika Hostel proved to be a great surprise for me. It is clean, perfectly located within few minutes walk to the Red Square, price is excellent and the staff extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I usually avoid hostels because they are noisy and mostly for young people, but Fabrika has private rooms too and it is the perfect location suited for... More

Sorry to say that our stay at Fabrika proved to be quite unpleasant. You can't believe how noisy it was. Both the hostel and the neighborhood. Moreover, it was not clean at all. Not worth the price, in short. The only thing I enjoyed was the colorful art on the walls.

Upon arriving, we were informed that they had lost our reservation for a private double with private bathroom, even though I had a copy of the reservation proving that I'd already paid a 10% deposit on the room for two nights. In spite of that, they made me pay the full price for the room I booked, but gave us... More

Is located 10 minutes walking from center, wich is perfect in a city like Moscow, but the rest of the Hostel sucks. First everything is quite dirty, including toilets, the common area was always full of trash from he day before. There is not 24 hours reception, that is quite insecure under my opinion Try to find a better place!!!

Best get the positive elements done first - location quite close to Kremlin and Red Square The room had 6 bunks and we booked the six for sole occupancy.  The room was sparse, one seat available/cube.  Outside two sofas taken up by a lot...

Me and my boyfriend have been travelling around for almost 2 months and Moscow is our 10th destination and this has been the worst experience so far for both the hostel and the city.

Stayed for 1 night in the end of september. We chose 6-bed mixed dorm that cost 650 rub\night. Dorm rooms are basic, 3 double-deckers beds, one big shelf in the corner and 3 chairs near the beds. If you have a jacket or a coat - it would be a problem to hang it. The linen and towels were clean.... More
