My husband and I booked a private room (shared bath) at Godzilla's for 3 nights the first week in June and we paid the equivilent of $70 US. The room had 2 twin size beds. We shared a bathroom and a shower, and never had to wait long for either. Both were clean, for the most part, though the paint was peeling in the bathroom. Our room locked and we felt safe at the hostel.
The thing I really did not like was that the hostel is located on a quiet side street -good for getting a good night's sleep, but I felt very uncomfortable walking through the deserted streets after dark. During the day, I felt perfectly safe, but I didn't want to stay out after dark, which was too bad.
They are able to register visas for a fee of 600 rubles, but it takes longer than they say it will.
Overall, it's an ok choice for Moscow on a budget. It's not quite as close to Red Square as we thought, maybe a 20-25 minute walk.
