Not something that really disturb me but the bed below mine wasn't occupied by anyone and since I arrived till i left (3 nights), bedsheets used by a previous guest has been left there. One last thing is that if the hostel declared that guests must chease to make noise by midnight then the hostel, in my opinion, should verify... More

We went to Moscow for 4 days and we stayed on this hostel. It looks nice with great location, in the old town in Arbat street. The point is that if you look for a quiet hostel this is yours, but our target was to be in a hostel that at least you could drink beer inside, but it is... More

Great place to stay out! Very comfortable rooms and great location. I especially liked the service that was provided. The beautiful girl with short spiky black hair was amazing at helping me book my train ticket to Saint Petersburg. I hope to return to this hostel and be greeted with equal attention. Looking forward to returning again! BIG THANKS!

This hostel has a lot to offer. There is a communal kitchen complete with an oven, a couple stoves, fridges, microwaves, cutlery, and sinks. There is also a nice sitting area with a tv. On the floor my dorm was on (one above the kitchen) there is another communal area with bean bag chairs which had another tv hooked up... More

I had to stay here after a mistake I did when reserving Vinegret hostel (way better hostel). The recepcionist is very unwelcoming. She is not helpful at all and seem to not want to be working there. There is no security for the big luggage left at the hostel and the sheets and furniture are not very new. Cleaning lady... More

It's nicely located in a nice and quiet back street of Arbat in central Moscow. The only problem is the first thing you face: the lift. The hostel is on the fourth floor and the lift is just for guests with luggage. In other times, you can't use it. But the room was very clean; we were two people and... More

Really good choice. Clean, comfortable hostel. With a friendly and intelligent staff. The hostel is located near the historical and business center of the city. Despite its proximity to the highway the building is located in a quiet side street.

Staying in Arbat

Neighborhood Profile
Arbat
Crowds of tourists, both local and international take in Old Arbat and its modern and gigantic peer – New Arbat. One reason visitors keep coming is no doubt Konstantin Melnikov’s famous private house, now open to the public and worthy of a visit. After exploring one of the oldest parts of Moscow, avoid the crowds and turn to the side streets and boulevards where calmness and affordable food is plentiful.
