We decided to splurge a bit more in Moscow so we booked 3 nights in a twin room in Godzillas hostel, we arrived very early in the morning (2am) and they let us sit in the common room/lounge area as long as we didn't sleep (fair enough), we could leave our bags in their secure area and we somehow summoned...

They dont take credit cards, small and not enough bathrooms. Crowded rooms, must avoid in summer! The location is good, do not expect much help from the staff, limited english. We encountered old and young people, would not use it for traveling with friends.

We stayed in a large mixed dorm here for 4 nights. The staff were friendly and the reception desk was manned 24/7. The wifi was fast and available on every floor with 2 computers you can use free of charge. 2 fully equipped kitchens and many showers and toilets available. Comfy lounge area and free tea and coffee all day.... More

Stayed there for two nights. For a common bathroom it was impressively clean - good facilities. They also offered before check-in/after check-out shower. Double room was a bit small. We had our valuables stored in the safe at the reception. Staff is competent and very helpful. Atmosphere is really cool. Tea and coffee available.

First the good- good location, free internet usage, good kitchens. Then the annoying- we booked a dorm and decided we wanted to change to a double upon arrival. There were plenty of doubles available but we would have had to pay the FULL price, not the difference between what we had already paid for the dorm. It really doesn't make... More

As a young couple on a city break, we don't normally opt for hostels but given the price of accommodation in Moscow, we chose Godzillas as it was affordable and it in a central location. The hostel was safe (directly opposite Moscow Police HQ) and staff were extremely helpful, particularly when we arrived. The double rooms next to the kitchens... More

We had a great stay here in May 2014 in a private room. The bathrooms are shared, but there seemed to be plenty of them and they were kept really clean. The staff was friendly, letting us use the showers before and after checkin. Everything was clean and in good shape and the location is really great—a very easy walk... More

One of the best hostels I have stayed at. Slept in both dorm and private room and found both to be very clean. The staff are helpful and friendly also. Godzillas is located in a very easy, safe environment with a train station within a 5 min walk.

We stayed in a private room and a dorm both were basic but clean and comfortable. The bathrooms are shared but kept clean. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The hostel has kitchens and a tv room with games so it feel quite homely with plenty of opportunity to socialise. There were small lockers in the dorms. The building... More
