Although a little apprehensive, we were soon warmly welcomed by the staff at iVAN hostel. The hostel itself is very homely, just like sharing an apartment in close proximity with a lot of strangers. This may be a bit daunting at first for young girls, but my friend and I shared a double room with our own privacy, yet could... More

Very large, television, dvd player and dvds. On one side the slats of the bed were a bit broken, but did not affect sleep. Couldn't hear any other rooms from our... More

This hostel has good prices and is next to the main atractions of Moscow. The team is very good and help you in any you need. I travelled alone and is very difficult when you are in a city that a few people speak English, then if you are thinking to travel to Moscow is a good place to stay.

I must point out we are not usually hostel patrons. We chose this one because of it's good reviews and location. There is a rotation of... More

I stayed at this place during my trip to Russia (Moscow, St. Petersburg) and was quite pleased. I chose iVAN hostel because it location is very convenient as a hub for explore of main sights of the city. More pluses: great team, fast WiFi, comfortable beds. Good price, can be recommended to the young people. Minuses: showers was not enough.

Just back from a week's stay at the iVAN Hostel. Moscow's hotels are so expensive that a hostel stay was our only realistic option and we chose iVAN because of its location. The hostel is a short walk from two major shopping streets and theatres including the famous Bolshoi. You have three metro stations on your doorstep, plenty of restaurants... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
iVAN Hostel is a place where all the benefits of a mini-hotel are combined with a friendly atmosphere of a small home-like hostel. It is very clean and quiet, and you are absolutely certain to have a comfortable, uninterrupted and refreshing sleep (plus WE MAKE YOUR BED). We are truly proud of our location: the hostel is right there in the center of Moscow so you are given access to all the little shops and grocery stores, churches, theaters and museums that the Russian capital is so rich in. And so visiting the Kremlin and the Red Square would be just as easy as going out for some coffee (plus WE MAKE YOU COFFEE every morning). And if would like to explore Moscow further, the nearest Moscow metro station is right round the corner. As for deciding where it is that you want to go, it is our job to help you do that. The hostel itself consists of two apartments located in the same building. We offer a variety of options: you can either choose a separate room with a king size bed or a bed in a shared room for 4-8 persons. Plus we have male-only and female-only 6-bed rooms. Bathroom and toilet are shared for all types of rooms. Each guest is provided with sleepers and a safe deposit. Laundry facilities are also available. We offer for all our guests coffee and tea each morning for free. For cooking you can use our fully equipped kitchen. There is a 24-hour reception at iVAN Hostel. We are always glad to provide you with the most useful information about the city sightseeing, ticket booking, shopping, events etc. ... more   less
