The hostel is in a very nice location, very close to Tverskaya and other streets that are nicely decorated for the summer, with lots of nice little spots to sit around, in addition to countless restaurants and bar (all on the posh and expensive side). It is very close to the metro station, although be aware that there are no... More

I had a great time at the Ivan hostel on my first trip to Moscow. The girls running the hostel were so friendly and helpful priving me with maps and downloaded the metro app. Hostel was clean, quiet and warm. Felt like a home from home! Thanks for a great trip!

Great hostel! Very clean, stylish and cosy. Guy at the reception (Igor, as far as I remember) speaks english, spanish and portugues! Perfect location in the very center of Moscow, 2 minutes from Metro and10-15 minutes from the Red Square and very close to other main places of interest. Highly recommended if you look for a cheap and comfortable place.

Very nice hostel, walking distance to Red Square which was very convenient. Very close to metro. Many places to eat and shop around. Great helpful staff who speak English and can give you good travel advice. No breakfast unfortunately and only one shower for a big hostel so that was a disadvantage

Location is brilliant, 10minute walk to red square and let's face it, Moscow is a great walking city (when not snowing). Directions from airport and metro were very handy. Lots of great little restaurants/bars near by. Clean, easy access, we had a private double bed which was fine. Only criticisms would be lack of atmosphere, lack of staff recommendations for... More

Room for couples, very clean with very friendly and helpful staff. Arranged transportation from the airport without problems and cheaper than others I researched. Best of all is that is very close to Red Square, markets and metro station.

Staying in Tverskaya

Neighborhood Profile
Tverskaya can’t be discovered with just a first glance, the neighborhood is shaped around a long street populated with well-known shops and brands. But it’s more than shopping that makes this place interesting. Take a few steps into the streets running parallel to the main artery to discover the charm just behind the mighty Stalinist style architecture. Comfy European pedestrian streets Bolshaya Dmitrovka or Stoleshnikov lane are a great place to start. Locals can be found here working, eating, shopping, resting and going to the Bolshoi Theatre in the evening.
