We booked for 4 nights and we sacraficed losing the money to find another place. I have travelled through over 50 countries and this is hands down the worst hostel.. I have never left a review, so this is how bad this place is. On entry there was an old man passed out, after climbing 4 stories to get to... More

I'd like to tell my experience about this hostel. I stayed in this hostel for one night with my classmates and I am not pleased. The service is nice but the level of hygiene is awful. We got plastic bags with dirty and messy bedclothes. There were adult men, who accosted 13-16 year old girls including me and the staff... More

Old, dirty, very strange atmosphere. Staff asking me for tourist tax money (you need to pay only once, and we paid it in Saint Petersburg). Only the location is good and also wi-fi. But avoiddddd. We stayed in the private room, it was outr lucky. Even so it was very very small, the water was coming out from toilett shower.

From what I can gather this used to be a great place. When we stayed there we were told in no uncertain terms that they had a party whilst we were there and they couldn't care less if we stayed or not. They proudly display their Trip Advisor award from 2007, but I fear those days have passed.

Very nice place (Moscow downtown, about 10 minutes from Kremlin when walking), nice personnel and moderate prices for staying (about 20 USD per night), round-a-day open even at 1.00 a.m., subway station nearby

It is indeed very close to the Red Square, but the atmosphere is a bit dodgy. I don't know if all hostels are like this in Moscow, but the were mainly Russians living there and i was thr only foreign girl that weekend, in addition to 2 other russian girls also not very friendly. It is cheap place indeed but... More

Good hostel for few days between friends. No far from metro and town center. the negative point of this international hostelling is that it's noisy. padlock and closed boxes equip the rooms for personnal affairs.
