Do not stay here. Most of the staff is not helpful, toilets are dirty, facilities are bad, and they rip you off with the visa support,... One positive thing, not bad located. But still, No reason at all to stay here.

Me and 4 other friends "stayed here" (we lasted until 5am) last year. It is honestly the worst place I've ever set foot in in my entire life. Lockers with no locks, broken windows that led out onto a Moscow street in the middle of winter that anybody could have climbed in, disgusting toilets, unhelpful staff, soiled mattresses, people searching...

I've been there just for few hours because I asked my company to move me to another hotel, since I really didn't feel I could stay there. I was feeling dirty and insecure. There was bad smell everywhere, a lot of gypsies and dirty people who look sick. Condoms under the bed, dirty sheets and pillows, unpleasant service. They didn't... More

Very disappointed about this hostel ! It was very dirty in the common areas. It smelled bad, the sinks were always dirty, I don't even talk about the toilets... Vomit, still excrements in the toilet bowl, urine around, toilet paper on the ground (but no paper that you can use). I was even afraid to have a shower, I kept... More

Impolied stuff, dirty and smelly rooms, toilets and showers. The Wifi worked quiet bad. Over all, very unpleasant stay. The location has been overall good, as it is close to some metro station, while being located in a quiet street.

After arriving the price announced was higher than the price they said in the mail. The toilet flush didn't work for two toilet and the showers were dirty. The staff is polite and mean. The staff and owners are liars

The location is great. Otherwise look away. There are so many other hostels in the vicinity. This one has very bad toilets, smelly dingy corridors and very unhelpful staff. ( the boy at the reception is an exception.) Its more like a sleeping-place for the homeless. No hostel atmosphere and most of the people are locals from the provinces. No... More

Even though we stayed in a private room with a private bathroom, our stay in À la russe was a disaster from beginning to end. The staff is very rude, they don't care to pay attention to what you are asking or what you need, they simply couldn't care less and they don't even hide it. One night, for instance,... More

Location is excellent (on their web site they provide complete info on how to reach them www.hotelalarusse.com / www.moshotels.com) but the staff is extremely young and not much interested in helping you. If you need to be registered they will ask a fee of around 800rubles (and as you have 7 days before the deadline to register, I would suggest... More
