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

Very good hostel, pretty near the center of Moscow. The only problem has been when we arrived late at night: we had to pay but they don't accept credit card and they request the payment cash in rubbles; so we had to go out and check for a bankomat in the middle of the night! Anyway, we're very satisfied of... More

We stayed at Godzillas in april, 2014. Good, clean rooms. Good service. Excellent wi fi and free coffee during mornings. Expensive, but considering Moscow as it is, good prices all in all. Location: 20 min from red square or nearby metro. No private bathroom is the only weakness we could find during our great stay at this hostel.

The staff at the hostel speak english, which was a big plus for us, since neither me nor any of my friends speak russian. The room was very comfortable, and and the beds of good quality (at least for hostel standards). Free tee and coffee, and WiFi also made the stay very nice!

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
