“Clean, new, fully facilities with cheap price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012 via mobile

The location is 10 minutes walking to Kremkin and bear the metro but the entrace to the hostel is a little bit dark in the night. The room is clean, plenty of bathroom and also clean. Reading light and plug for every bed. Kitchen and common room is combined and looking good with fully facilities. 100 rubles for laundry. Nice staff. The Cheapest 8 bed room is only 440 rb.

It was a surprise to us that probably the cheapest hostel in Moscow is located in the center of the old city of Moscow. Moscow is a really expensive city, so the hostel where you can cook and it is not far away, is a priceless treasure. Less than a mile to the Red Square.
The hostel is really like new, has a kitchen decorated as if someone was doing shopping at Ikea and do not forget to visit any department. Some pots were not even unpacked.
Guests have at their disposal all kitchen appliances, large fridge, a machine for hot water, free tea and coffee (and sugar :).
The living room is wonderfully decorated, has a wicker chairs, painting referring to Africa and tasteful (well, maybe a little abstract) cuddly African animals.
  Staff are friendly and very helpful. Provide very useful information about places in Moscow. In the hostel you can find some (new) guides, including Lonely Planet. They should, however, write that the guests do not wynosili their living room. They know even really strange. There is no problem with leaving one luggage.
The rooms are very reasonably designed, each bed has a locker and two sockets at the correct height.
Quite hard to get there, I think already working on hanging a large sign. Petrovka street side you enter the gate of a building with scaffolding. Hostel is a (orange?) metal door in a building on the right, a children's playground.

The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The location cannot be beat - it is walking distance away from Red Square/Kremlin and major theaters, multiple Metro stations and restaurants/bars. Love the bright colors and the funky decorations as well - most hostels I've been to have been rather drab, run-down affairs and these guys prove that even for a little money you don't have to settle for something that looks like an old hospital bed. All in all, for the $15/night I paid, this is a fantastic value and I would gladly come back here time and time again. In an expensive city that rarely lends itself to value, Safari is a welcome and pleasant surprise.
