Our stay in Moscow was really nice and the apple hostel was amazing. The girls who were there were too kind and they were always helping us with everything. My two friends and I were in a 6 beds room and it was great. The room was clean, organized and quiet. They dont offer breakfast but they offer a well equipped kitchen.


The staffs are really amazing.... So helpfull


Hard to find-just off the street it says it's on with small sign. Staff were mixed-Esp when asking about registering visas (THEY WILL NOT REGISTER YOU) and tried to charge us 3000 rubles to do it. Olga however is amazing-very friendly, great English and took us ice skating. Great kitchen, and other facilities are there but all VERY cramped. Only 2 toilets/3showers for approx 40 people. Bedrooms also cramped but nice beds. Very clean-cleaner there 24/7. Fantastic location-10 mins from Kremlin.


It is quite difficult to find, but the rest is fine. Nice and very helpful staff and clean facilities


De rented a room for 6 people, even than se were 4, to have some privacy. That didn't happen at all. Because there was no keys to lock the door, people were coming inside all the time ( they didn't even knock the door before coming in) to pick thing from the lockers... We spoke with one person of the staff who didn't want to understand that that situation was not reasional. So people kept coming inside the two days that we staid in. As you can imagine we were not happy at all.

Perfect location. Staff is very helpful and most of them speak English very well. Rooms and Bathrooms are very clean.


Good value for Moscow. Btw, in terms of hosteling, they could improve much more ..

It was a lovely hostel, small rooms but warm athmosphere. The heating was good compared to other hostels, you could stay in wearing shorts in winter!


Felt more like an apartment than a hostel with many of the people staying there being people from Moscow who were living there for a long period of time. They often got annoyed at backpackers and this didn't help atmosphere. Decent size kitchen, lounge and rooms. Wouldn't stay there again but decent enough.


great location and great staff, but crowded hostal, rooms and toilets.


perfect location. staff is very helpful. you'll probably feel home. can recommend to anyone planning to stay in Moscow.


Good hostel, great location in Moscow, just a few blocks from Red Square, and lots of bars in the neighbourhood. The staff is really helpful and nice, ant the place is super clean. Strange atmosphere, many people seem to be living there, but cool anyway!. The one thing I would change is putting up a sign or sticker or something al the door, really hard to find!!
