Choco hostel was a little hard to find. The best thing to do is get the metro to Tverskaya station (name looks like "Tbeckar" in Russian). Exit onto the main road (also called Tbekcar) and walk straight up it (north on a map). When you reach the Intercontinental Hotel, turn right onto the street just after it. Keep heading down the left hand side of that road until you get to a park then you will see the big black door in the block after the park on your left. Buzz number 4.
Not hard once you've found it the first time.
The staff were friendly (in a Russian kind of way =p) and the place was neat. Sadly there was no hot water working in the main bathroom when we were there and the 2nd bathroom had quite a small, dingy shower. The usual bathroom for guests was nicer though.
There were decent lockers in the rooms and they provided clean sheets and a towel etc.
The hostel is located on a quiet street so it's easy to sleep at night, and the hostel itself, when we were there, was also fairly quiet.
Location is great. A 10-15 minute walk down the road to the Kremlin and Red Square =) lots of cheap, but Russian-style food nearby,
Basically, it's a small hostel - don't expect anything more. But it felt friendly, safe and had dynamite hot chocolate in the mornings.
