Reviewed December 31, 2005

Godzillas hostel is surely the best budget accommodation in Moscow. Located 5 minutes from the metro it is very easy to get into the city centre. The hostel could be hard to find if you don't go prepared. Their website has some maps of which the 'Taxi' map is particularly good because it has the roads in cyrilic letters as they are marked on road signs. The entrance is an unremarkable brown door with a small sign. Inside there are a number of bedrooms of varying sizes. I saw three and all had IKEA furnature and bedding. It is unusual in my hostelling experience to get comfortable beds with down duvets and pillows so this was a pleasant suprise. Communal bath/shower rooms are cleaned daily and I had no complaints here either. There will be two kitchens - although only one was finished when I stayed. The kitchens did get messy at times but they were also cleaned every day.
There is a small lounge with a tv although this is used for accommodation when things are busy.
Nearby there is a general food/alcohol shop and a pizza hut.
Having read reviews of other hostels in Moscow I was worried about security but my room door locked and the hostel has a safe in the office. I had no concerns about safety at all during my stay.
Yann is the resident sorter of all problems. His humour may catch you off guard when you arrive after a day of travelling but he is genuinely helpful. James, the owner, was also a great help with visa registrations which should be available at the hostel soon.
So are there any negatives? Well just a few. One end of the hostel is over a restaurant/disco. The music never went on after midnight but it did get pretty loud before that.
The hostel is a work in progress. One of the three rooms I went in was quite dusty and one kitchen lacks any cooking facilities. However during my stay a shiny new lamp appeared in my room and various things were being done to improve things. None of these were any trouble more significant than stepping over strips of fresh varnish in two doorways.
One night I had to change rooms. Unfortunately when I returned at the end of the day Yann had gone out so I couldn't get a key to my new room - with all my stuff inside! I eventually got into the new room at 1am.
Lastly, as with any hostel, a good night sleep depends on your fellow guests. There were two nights when a pair of ear plugs would have been handy.

Overall Godzillas is really good value for money. I was happy to accept its faults because it exceeded my expectations in many other ways.

Room Tip: На ночь обязательно закрывайте двери на этаже. Иначе будет шумновато.
