I was quite apprehensive about the stay due to bad experiences with hostels but I was pleasantly surprised. My boyfriend and I stayed in an annexe room (so we had our own key) on the first floor which was kitted out with Ikea furniture-double bed, bedside table with lamp, occassional table and hangers on the walls for clothes. We were given bed linen and towels. It had a high ceiling which made it feel bigger and was at the back of the building, so the only real noise came from the washing machine next door which didn't bother either of us (if noise really bothers you, why not wear ear plugs?!). The staff were really helpful when we arrived and let us check into our room even though it was only 11:30 am. We spent most of our three days in Moscow out and about, so were not concerned about the size of the room as we only wanted it for sleeping. We were able to walk down to Red Square from the hostel and the metro was close by so it was in a good location for us. I also liked being able to use the free Wi-Fi in our room as I had my netbook with me but there are also two computers in the reception area for guests to use for free. The two showers closest to us on the whole worked fine, one morning there was only one so we had to wait 10 minutes to use it. As we weren't in a rush, it didn't matter. The cleanliness of the building was fine and we saw cleaners around the building, mopping and sweeping up. On the final day, we left our bags in the luggage store pretty much all day with no problems. Overall, I wasn't expecting hotel standard, so I wasn't disappointed and in fact my opinion of hostels has massively improved due to my stay at Godzillas.
