Godzillas was in a perfect location from the centre of Moscow, only 1mile from the red square so easy to walk too! I also felt safe walking back to the hostel at night time. I stayed in a private twin, and always felt that my belongings were safe in the room when I was not there. I went travelling as... More

I'm not sure you could find a better hostel in Moscow for the price paid (around £25-30 per person per night). We stayed in a triple private room with a shared bathroom and kitchen. The hostel was very clean and pleasant, comfy beds, only a 20 minute walk to red square and it was staffed 24 hours a day. Don't... More

We stayed here at the end of a trans-Siberian train adventure, so any 'non-moving' bed would probably have been great, but I think this hostel was probably a good choice. The location is great - you can actually walk all the way into the heart of the city, do the Kremlin etc and then walk back again very easily (only... More

Dorms are clean and reasonably comfortable. Staff are friendly and helpful. Location is fantastic. Overall I thought it was great value for money given how expensive Moscow is for accommodation. Would definitely stay here again.

Good facilities, daily housekeeping, comfortable beds, and great size rooms for a reasonable price. Quiet place (good for sleeping), but poor atmosphere probably due to the non alcoholic policy and to the small size of the common room. For the bad points: the registration fees are too expensive. For the postal service, the staff will show you on a map... More

A little overpriced for a hostel. But friendly staff, clean room and kitchen, simple but nice bathroom. The place is located close to the underground station. There are also several nice cafes around. I chose this particular hostel because of the female dorm and very convenient location. Other hostels in that area do not have a girls only room.

The location is a few blocks from a metro stop which is in a good, interesting part of town, walkable to other parts of town. The kitchens were nice. The showers were typical for hostels. The computer and wifi worked well enough.

Clean and safe, I'd recommend it if you're one a budget. Hotels are generally really expensive in Moscow, so if you want to stay in a good location with basic services, this is a good choice. Staff is very friendly and helpful providing information.

Stayed here prior to starting the trans-siberian train journey. Staff were friendly & it was in a good location, within walking distance to metro, restaurants & 24hour supermarket. The only negative was we stayed in a private room (room12) which to access you had to walk through a 10bed dorm, not really great when you have paid extra.

Location-wise, the Godzillas hostel is good, but nothing more than that. I think you can get somewhere else better for the same price. I have stayed at the AZIMUT Moscow Tulskaya Hotel which was far better than Godzillas for similar price.
