We stayed here as part of our Vodkatrain tour and have to admit was very impressed. The rooms were very clean and functional and the bathroom facilities were great. Amazingly hot water which is all you want after traveling and they had a secure room for luggage storage too. The staff were always happy to help and could not fault... More

We was there in a double room before we did the transib. The small room looks grubby and the bed smells not fresh. The showers and toilets can also be better cleaned. But the location and the staff was great. You can go to the kremel by food in just 15 minutes. Around the corner are a lot of restaurants... More

I had the worst night ever in this hostel. I had one night to spend in beautiful Moscow and this night got ruined "thanks" to Godzillas hostel. It all started when me and my friend made a reservation and thought we paid in advance for that night. We came to Moscow after a long flight at 11:30 PM and we... More

James S, Owner at Godzillas Hostel, responded to this review

Please accept our apologies! We do have a policy of accepting foreign currency deposits for people who arrive late at night without having time to change money to Russian Rubles. Why you were made to leave so late at night to change money is unforgivable and the receptionist in question is no longer with us. We hope the rest of... More

I have been visiting this hostel since 2008 and every year it gets better and better. Just when you think it is great enough, they improve it that little bit more - to now include complimentary tea & coffee, the Wi-Fi is excellent throughout, new fixtures and fittings, spotlessly clean and to a standard far above anything you would get...

What a great hostel. Warm and comfortable. Staff are helpful and friendly, very good english. You can do washing for 160 rubles. There is a tv room to chill out in/meet people. Free tea and coffee. The baggage room was very helpful as we didn't leave until after midnight the day we checked out. The staff said we could use... More

First impressions were bad as the man who greeted us was quite negative and rude. But the other staff (especially the young lady with the blonde fringe and glasses) were very helpful and friendly. There are limited showers and toilets, so wake up early and get in there quick. The beds are comfy and a decent size, including the room.

I stayed here early September as part of the Vodka Train tour and found that it was a good place to stay. The location was okay, a walk to shops and restaurants. We shared a dorm with about 12 other people but it was quite large which was great. The hostel was very clean with cleaners visibly working round the... More

Stayed here on two seperat occasions in one months time for 4 days. The place is pretty nice compared to most hostels, clean, and quiet. Beware of the asian girl though she's NASTY. We came back pretty late from the clubs on a Sat morning and got up late. Realizing we had just passed check out time I went to... More

I have just come back from a 4 night stay and I would say it was worth 3.5 out of 5, rather than 4. The location is good, with about a 20-25 minute walk to The Kremlin and Red Square but only a 5 minute walk to Tsvetnoi Bulvar metro station, which took you to the centre, in just a... More

Godzilla's Hostel is conveniently located within a 10minute walk from Moscow's main sites (Kremlin, Red Square etc). The neighbourhood is really safe with the main police station round the corner. There are reasonably priced restaurants nearby too. Our twin room on the top floor was spacious and clean. The shared bathrooms were cleanish but more importantly there were enough showers... More
