Was easy to find but the administrator was not around when we arrived. We walked around Moscow with our bags and tried about an hour later. Administrator was in another building of the hostel doing some housekeeping. The place we stayed was the building that the administrator was cleaning and it was like a mini hotel instead of a dorm. The alley leading to this building could be quiet at night but it's close the one of the busiest street in Moscow. The price of the hostel is pretty expensive for us but according to a local, it's relatively average price for hostels in the locality since it is almost in the centre of town.
Staff was friendly and nice, though on the 2nd day, another staff took over and she was not fluent in English so we had a bit of difficulty speaking to her.
