No good location could compensate for the 3 nights of bad sleep! Noise is constant and it is not a jolly sounds of happy party goers – it is appallingly loud noise of seven airconditioners (in a tiny enclosed yard) and a unloading truck that delivers merchandise (every night!) to the next door shop. So “good location” is overrated here... More

Awful hostel, under reform. It was a horrible suprise when i arrived and saw my bed in the stair hall, because there was no rooms.The rooms showed in the photos were closed or occupied, and the guests slept in spaces under reform, covered in white dust and dirty, with cloths dividing the environments and workmen making noise. Very small kitchen... More

The hostel was nice and the room was small but newly renovated. The only issue was that the floor was under renovation thus lots of dust was coming even through the door of the room. However if you stay in this hostel a little later I am sure you will have a nice and tidy after renovation room.

This hotel/hostel has nice pictures on its Web site, but the reality is that right now (March 2012) they're taking advantage of the off-season to do repairs and build a new room--and things are a bit grubby at the moment. The duty manager told us that by May 2012 things should be better. The building looks awful from the outside,... More

We booked this hostel based on photos we saw on different websites and their claim to have recently been renovated. Looked good, but when we arrived we found that the hostel was under renovation NOT that it was already done. We were put in a dorm room with no flooring (only the underfloor was there) and the door was missing... More

The good point of the hostel is its location, in the commercial street of Arbat. Our rooms were ensuite rooms and they had different problems: - They were really really small without any wardrobe. - Beds and pillows were old, bad and bed sheets were really old as well (with bleach stains). - The bathroom is also small and we...

A friend and I had booked a private twin room for 5 nights direct with the hotel well in advance, paying a deposit. Friends of ours had separately booked a double private room also. When we turned up we were told we would actually be staying in an apartment, with the people who by coincidence happened to be our friends... More

The hostel is clearly doing well based on it's location and lack of competition. However if Moscow ever starts to fill the void in budget accommodation that it seems to suffer from this place will quickly and rightly be forgotten. The rooms are cheaply built and furnished, there seems to be no sound proofing or insulation in the walls meaning... More

It is really truly horrible... Yes I do understand that budget accommodation is nothing more than budget, but being have to pay almost 100$ this is really just way too budget for me to accept. I was hoping that it would be better somehow then what I saw from the websites and all - to all fairness don't hope it... More

Staying in Arbat

Neighborhood Profile
Arbat
Crowds of tourists, both local and international take in Old Arbat and its modern and gigantic peer – New Arbat. One reason visitors keep coming is no doubt Konstantin Melnikov’s famous private house, now open to the public and worthy of a visit. After exploring one of the oldest parts of Moscow, avoid the crowds and turn to the side streets and boulevards where calmness and affordable food is plentiful.
