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've dwelled at iVan Hostel for 5days The admins were nice and helpful when we needed hands on, hence it was impressive. On every issue we had problems they're so kind and interactive. But, there were some guesses whom have been stayed for long (like their home) ,made themselves like a center or a bit influencer , They should be... 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

I stayed here with a friend for 2 nights, but switched to the Godzilla hospital because we felt uncomfortable as the staff were rude. Perhaps we were there an an off week, but it was run by a bunch of young men and they did not make us feel comfortable at all. However, the rooms were nice, the location was... More

After having come through most of Russia on Train, finally arriving in Moscow was hot and overwhelming, but the very clear directions and friendly staff on arrival definitely helped. The location is phenomenal, very close to most of the places you'd want to go and the rooms are very clean with lockers include. My friend and I (both female) ended... More
