10 minutes walk from Arbatskaya Metro Station, the website has all the directions and even some text in Russian to get you there. Rooms and bathrooms are quite clean and people are very friendly. Super market is 2 minutes away where you can find almost everything from food to basic utilities. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to... More

Bear hostel is centrally located on the top floor of a building. the staff is nice.The rooms and bathrooms are decently clean. It is good for budget backpacking and travelling. As you enter, you will have to remove your shoes at the entrance.

It was a noisy, unfriendly and cold place. Lots of groups staying there. Lights went out, no towels, stuff didn't care much. Ended up there by accident when all other places were booked up. Wouldn't recommend it or go there again.

The hostel is located on the fourth floor of a big communist building. After you enter (leave your street shoes in the anteroom) you will be welcomed by a smiling receptionist with a model English. Some facts: - cheapest place to stay in Moscow - 10 minutes walk from the metro station - 24h self-service market 5 minutes away -... More

A 10 minutes walk from Arbatskaya metro, Bear is an OK place for a short stay. The hostel is located on a whole floor of a typical communist block of flats. The place is a "shoe free" zone and you're supposed to leave your shoes at the entrance (or carry them with you). So, it's recommendable to leave a pair... More

It's a small and clean hostel a 7 min walk away from the Kremlin and not to talk about the Arbatskaya street that is loved by the locals. When you walk on the Novyy Arbat street (Новый Арбат) you hear loud music playing from the shopping center and my room windows were on that side but don't worry I didn't... More

Stayed there for 2 nights The location is good, not very far from the metro station. The place was very clean but it's very hot at night and we're told that there's no remote controller for air conditioner in the room (we had a stay in July).

When I think about staying in hostels, I think about meeting nice and cool people, like myself! The only reason Bear Hostel is a hostel is because they have dorm rooms. Don't take me wrong, the place is beautiful, incredibly clean, on a good location and well priced. But it's plain boring! When I was there, I was sharing the... More
