“Please, don't go”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

The people who run this hostel owns four properties. We reserved Panamas but ended at Za Za Zoo, two blocks away.
40 people, two showers, both of them in the kitchen. Lot's of workmen staying at the hostel. While we stayed there was a team of very nice Serbian construction workers. Nice people, OK, but imagine what is it for a woman having to cross a kitchen full of 6.5 feet tall men cooking, after having a shower. Cleaning only at noon. A mess the rest of the day. No hostel sign at the entrance (probably illegal property). I had to beg twice for a bill.

This is one of the worse hostels I’ve ever been. Managed by 16 year-old girls. I had to beg for the sheets. It’s really noisy. It’s close to the Red Square, but really hard to find, even when we had the directions provided by them. We tried with GPS, Google Maps and phone directions and it took us 1 hour to get there. I wouldn’t recommend this hostel, and I wouldn’t recommend going to Moscow at all. The only good thing to see is the Red Square, and that’s it. Noone speaks english and noone is willing to help you. It gets really hard to eat, to move, to buy anything. And it is quite expensive. Moscow doesn’t worth the effort.

I am even unsure if this is a legal hostel. There is no signage anywhere, difficult to find. Its a residential block of flats and the hostel in one of those flats. In the 8bed dormitory there is no locks on the doors. Felt so unsafe. Booked 4 nights and spent only one night.
Shower and toilet floor was always soaking wet and very dirty.

Location was very central but again, i dont think its a legal hostel. SO better be safe than sorry.
