We traveled from Vladivostok to Moscow on the Trans-Siberian railway in October 2012 and booked through Suharevka's website after a thorough research of where to spend 4 nights in Moscow and where to spend the least amount of money. We arrived on the 27th and left on the 31st October, and found the place very easily with the hostel's website location information. The price was very reasonable, for 4 nights for a couple in a closed double bedroom we paid 8400RBL, about 200€. We found it clean, reasonably quiet for what is essentially a private apartment transformed into a backpackers. There was a friendly receptionist who happily printed off our Bolshoï tickets, gave us a map and basic information. There are two bathrooms (basic shower and sink), one toilet and a fairly large living area with free tea, coffee, TV and very important, free WI-FI (which works fine from the room too). We locked the room everyday and it clearly wasn't touched for 4 days, which was good since we could make our own mess, make our bed ourselves and leave our stuff just like being at home. We heated water there and ate noodles on most nights, just like we did on the train, as Moscow can be very expensive for food. We found it perfect for traveling on a budget, it is a very central place, close to Suharevka metro station, and as the Kremlin and most tourist attractions are about 20mins on foot we found it perfect. Supermarkets are numerous nearby and it is fairly easy to get to the International airport as well. Only downside is we had the worst weather with snow, rain, and horrible slush for 4 days! Would recommend it for budget travelers.
