Just back from a week's stay at the iVAN Hostel. Moscow's hotels are so expensive that a hostel stay was our only realistic option and we chose iVAN because of its location. The hostel is a short walk from two major shopping streets and theatres including the famous Bolshoi. You have three metro stations on your doorstep, plenty of restaurants within 10 minutes walk, a supermarket a few doors away and major sights such as Red Square and the Kremlin are walkable. We had a private double room with shared bathroom and kitchen and were happy with the cleanliness and help we received. It was a nice touch to have access to a television in our room so we could experience a bit of Russian telly! I would recommend the hostel as a base for exploring rather than a destination in its own right - it's perfectly located for getting out there and seeing the sights, but is quite quiet (socially) compared to other hostels I've been to. A good option for budget travellers though!
