My friends and I stayed at Da when we visited Moscow after finishing our A-levels. We enjoyed our stay a lot. The hostel is in a fantastic location, although slightly difficult to find on our first day (a sign on the street would be nice as it is in a little courtyard), it is very close to the Arbat and...

Good points: Excellent central location, overlooking Arbat; very reasonable rates; well-fitted kitchen and plenty of fridges; sells souvenirs more cheaply than the local shops; free city and Metro maps; lockers in rooms; clean bedding and towels provided; clean and functioning wash room / showers; free wi-fi, but it was non-functioning after two days. Bad points: Can be noisy late at... More

Hostel was kind of ok, kind of terrible. Other guests was all russians and we got impression that all other guests was living in there, and they were not very welcoming to us. Hostel was clean, but we have a doubt that there's a lot of mold in that house, cos every of our group (4persons) had ventilation and skin... More

It's a pretty good hostel with clean rooms, bathrooms and kitchen. It's situated very close to Arbat so we could join different interesting places. Thanks to this hostel I have a bunch of great memories about Moscow :)

This place sort of made Moscow for me. Though the staff and locals speak very limited English, that's exactly what I was going for. I was one of two foreigners in the place and loved every minute of it. Location's fantastic and the facilities are great.

Looking for a hostel in Moscow was quite challenging, there was no obvious choice and prices were similar to NY. Da! Hostel was the chosen one. It provided clean beds, friendly staff and good location. Also, from my research it was one of the few "professional hostels" in the city, as most of what is advertised as hostel in Russia... More

Good location, right off Arbat Street which has lots of cafes, restaurants and street-sellers. Five minutes’ walk to Arbat Metro. 15-20 minutes’ walk to Red Square. However, the staff were relatively unfriendly and really unhelpful with things to do and nightlife around Moscow and seemed as if they just couldn’t be bothered. The hostel is split on two floors. There... More
