Not clean at all , I think 2 out of 15 guests , are real travellers , all the rest they just live there , they "own" everything , rooms and the kitchen are just a an incredible mess ... the staff seems not to care about you ...

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

My boyfriend and I have been at napoleon hostel in march 2015, we've arrived around 9am and there were hips of people sleeping on the sofa in the hall, and a man politely told us that we could leave the luggage there and sit somewhere because the check in was after 12pm! When we finally did the check in, the... 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
