We got the private room with bathroom. The bathroom is nice and spacious but the bedroom is tiny with no window. On our first night the hostel double booked our room so we had to use the shared bathroom. They tried to make us feel better by offering us a 'discount' which was actually just the price of the new... More

So close to the Kremlin 10min walk and the rest is just great from the people to the management. A great experience to spend a few nights in it and go out for a few drinks with all the house. If you're playing poker i would give it a hand of full house )) Enjoy!

Especially the beds were fantastic, as you were in a dorm, but the bed was really good seperated from the others. You have a curtain and a big matress. As new years eve was coming... More

It's really amazing place! First of all it's in very center of Moscow but prices are not so high. I stayed in a lot of hostels and I can surely say that it's the best hostel ever. Guys who work there are very friendly, help with everything. And you can always meet interesting people over there. Thank you for everything!

I stayed there for one week and it was truly the best hostel experience I've ever had, mostly on account of the people that I've met there. Some of them had been staying there for months before I arrived and it felt like I was staying with a large and rowdy family. Everyone was very welcoming and super helpful, we... More

The location is pretty good, very close to Arbatskaya metro station, approximately a 10 minute walk from the Kremlin and 15 minutes from the Red Square. For those travelling on a budget, there's a branch of restaurant chain "yelki palki" (Ёлки-Палки) who do pretty cheap all you can eat buffets. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Furthermore, given Moscow... More

This place was a little bit of a mess- to put it mildly. To get things started, let me explain who I am. I am a 21 year old solo female traveler. I have been to 14 countries and counting. I have stayed in friends homes, apartments, hotels (3 stars and up), hostels, and B&B's. I was only in Moscow... More
