Reviewed June 10, 2013

Stayed here a while ago now but am going back over some places I've stayed as I plan my next holiday. This was quite a basic hostel, hard to find but pretty well located once you find your way around. The walk into Red Square etc is - as others have said - about 20 mins and fairly pleasant. There's a supermarket nearby and plenty of cash machines. Down by the metro station there was even a really posh little shop selling all sorts of English products and a Barclays ATM. The big dorm was crowded and the kitchen a bit of a state, but it did the job and was inexpensive.

For huge city like Moscow the location of the hostel is great, maybe 20 minutes walk from Red Square, 10 minutes walk from Old Arbat, 10 minutes walk from metro station. Toilets and shower rooms were always clean, rooms are big, bed was very comfortable, only minus is that they don't have private lockers in rooms.

I stayed here for three nights and it was ok, but I wouldn't want to stay any longer. It's hard to find good (and cheap!) accommodation in Moscow though, so you have to lower your expectations. The pros of this hostel: the location (around 20 minutes walk to Red Square), the rooms are cleaned every day, there's always hot water. The staff were a bit surly, but that's just Russia.

Staff - very nice and helpful.
Facility - so so.

What seems like an important note - the hostel is in two buildings and apparently the staff does not monitor the second building away from the staff residence.
People partying until 4 a.m. - guy returned to male dorm with girl, though thankfully apparently to sleep, with two to the small bunk bed.
Snoring(( I forgot about hostels - horrible - two in the room who could make the walls shake.

So in fairness, the experience was poor due primarily to other guests - but a really awful sleepless night.

Room Tip: Stay in the primary building near the hostel managers room.

Be carefull with the reservation as it is made in euros and payment must be made in rublos. So when we arrived the exchange rate was much worse than the actual one. This is a hostel not a currency exchange office. They shouldnt try to gain money with this...The staff was ok. The toilets and shower rooms were tiny and quite dirty. The location was ok

Not so centrally located but if you don't mind the walk you can get to Red Square and Kremlin in about 20 minutes or very convinient from Park Kultury underground station which is closes to this hostel (5min walk). Anyway town is connected so good by the underground and you have supermarket, shops, many exchange offices nearby. Staff is really helpfull and you have plenty of showers and bathrooms on the floor as well as 4 computers with free interet (2 on each floor), common room is also nice as well as kitchen.
Only bad thing is that there is no breakfast and they moved my stuff from one room to another without even noticing me!?
Be sure to visit Park Kultury just accross the bridge, excellent chillout place...

Stayed here in December 2009. The place is clean and the staff very friendly. The location is a walkable distance from Park Kultury Metro Station. There are many local shops around to buy bread and milk and other food stuff. Enjoyed the environment as you meet lots of people from different countries travelling the world. One evening we went for Dinner in the nearby Chinese restaurant with a Korean student studying in Siberia, and the other evening I bought two bottles of wine and enjoyed them with four other residents over very nice conversation.
The place is safe and main door always locked.
