This hostel is quite hard to find, you have to really pay attention to the street and housenumber and let the receptionist downstairs call the hostel. The hostel itself is clean, has a friendly staff and is good located to visit the city. My friend and I had a very small room with a bunk bed and no heating control... More

I stayed in a private bunk bed room with my partner which was perfect for us, the kitchen just outside are room and the bathroom next to it so it was perfect. The rooms are very clean and have a great homely feel about them. The living room is a great size and plenty of space for all the guest... More

Great place if you want to spend time (and in my case NYE) in Moscow! Igor and Kate are very nice! Very helpful and awesome people! I don't agree at all with the "unfriendly staff comments" - be nice and friendly to people and they will be friendly towards you! The hostel is near the Kremlin, good location for tourist... More

We stayed here in November 2012 and were Yuri's first clients. Everything was spotless, which makes sense since no other tourists had been there yet. The hostel has a functional kitchen, nice common quarters (a living room with a big TV) and a very friendly and helpful manager (Yuri). Everything is modern and friendly. It is very close to the...

Staff are very unfriendly, the atmosphere is sterile, there are two showers and two toilets for the whole hostel, and very strange clientele hanging about. Stayed for four days with friends and never really felt comfortable here. 1000 rouble deposit for key is extortionate, and rooms aren't cheap anyway. Location is really good, but I would not stay at this... More

This hostel in the heart of the city of Moscow was really a great choice. The place is really close to Arbat street, The Red Square, metro stations (Borvitskaya and Arbat), the Kremlin and a lot more. The owner was kind enough to change my reservation after doing a side trip to St. Petersburg. It was unfortunate that I experienced... More

We had no problem at all except for noisy guests at our first night. The location is just great and the facilities were in good working order. Red Square and Pushkin Museums are at walking distance. It is a flat inside a building without a signtable and it is not easy to find someone to help you around there so... More

I was very satisfied with this hostel. Nice staff and rooms are clean, well located hostel, near to the metro station. What I liked, it had a fast Wi-Fi connection. I could use the internet without problems. The drawing-room is big and cosy, you have enough place to do something. It was pleasant to stay there.

The hostel is very close to Arbat street (where you can shop and eat). It is also close to Church of the Christ Savior and Kremlin. Just less than 10 min walk. And 5 min walk to nearest metro station. The staff in the hostel is very helpful. Another good thing is that the security is quite high. Because you... More
