Stayed here for a couple of days in a private room. Location was excellent, staff was nice and friendly and spoke English really well, and was very eager to offer assistance if there was anything we needed. Located within walking distance of Red Square, and great shopping facilities in the center of Moscow. Clean toilets, clean beds. Atmosphere of the... More

We stayed here for around a week in the end of October in the economy twin room. While the criticism that the hostel lacks character and the sociable vibe that I have found in some other places is definitely true, the clean, quiet and warm place to sleep was exactly what we wanted. In addition, having visited a 'hotel' in... More

iVAn Hostel is just a 10 to 15 minute walk from the Kremlin and close to the Metro. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It's not a big Hostel. As far as I understood, iVAN Hostel consists of two apartments that are very close, but not in the same building. Don't expect a big kitchen or common room. They... More

I stayed in this hostel for one night in September due to the very good ratings here on TA. I can only say I don't understand the very good ratings. I have traveled to more than 50 countries and stayed in many many hostels around the world and iVAN is nothing more than an average hostel with a good location.... More

The great thing about this hostel is the location and how ridiculously clean it is. If you are staying in the 8 bed dorm in the second building then expect to be cramped. There was no space to put my things down on the floor and in order to get to my locker I had to stretch over the person... More

Decent Hostel in good location. My room was tidy, nicely decorated and definitely good value for money. The shared facilities and kitchen are clean and modern. The location is good, as well. Metro, shops and restaurants are in easy walking distance. The Kremlin and other attractions are a bit further, but still well doable on foot. The Hostel is made... More

I like Ivan hostel because it was clean and quiet and no alcoholic drinks are allowed in the hostel. When I was there, the hostel wasn't full and I didn't have to wait or que to use the bathroom and the toilet. The staffs were young and friendly. Tip - Bring enough cash to pay for your room because the... More
