Its not dirt-cheap, but the location and the amenities may justify it for you. It is about 20 minutes (walking) from the Bolshoi Theatre and close to all other major sights. The rooms were a little stuffy in the summer (we were in the twelve-bed one) but they had put large fans so it was not intolerable. The beds are... More

This was a very hostelly hostel, for a lack of a better word. It's well laid-out, occupies three (or four?) floors and there's a kitchen and at least two bath/shower rooms on every floor. Our room was a bit small, but it had a really wide window sill, so that made up for it! There is also a huge baggage... More

We, a group of three, had a three day stay in Moscow. We chose the Hostel because of its location. It is centrally located and and the major tourist centers are nearby. You can either chose to walk (if fit enough!) or use the Metro. Tsvetnovi Bulvar metro station is just a 5 min walk from hostel. The rooms are... More

We arrived here at 11pm after a 10.5 hour train journey from St. Petersburg. We didn't have enough cash on us to pay for the room (as we didn't want to have too much money on the train) and under no circumstances were we allowed to check in until we paid for our booking. We even asked about paying for... More

Hostel is great - clean rooms and helpful staff. Lots of great restaurants just around the corner - check out the Moscow Ping Pong club and Delicatessen. Can get to the Kremlin in 20 minutes - or a 30 minute walk through a very nice district.

We arrived at about 5am, couldn't check in till 1pm but the lady at the front desk was super welcoming and let us hang out in the lounge and use all the facilities. We changed from a dorm to a private room which was no problem. Everything was well maintained and clean. Free pancakes instead of borscht, which were super... More

Stayed here as part of the vodkatrain, fantastic location with a nice little shortcut to the metro. Very clean and cosy, they offer a cheap laundry service and wifi is very reliable. They also make huge portions of borscht, make sure you get some quick because it's some of the best I had in Russia!

Clean hostel, helpful staff. Near to Metro station for fast access to Red Square area. Coffee/tea provided for free in lobby and filtered water in kitchen. Definitely would recommend. Oh and it's named Godzilla's; how great is that?!

After having traveled quite a lot in Eastern Europe I was really pleasantly surprised by Godzillas hostel. The staff were all super friendly, always happy to help answer any questions or help with the coffee machine/ TV room or anything else we needed. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, and it was nice to have so many showers to choose... More
