Very noisy, thin walls. Our room was about 6 sqm, with no window (!); with a bunk bed for two people; from three sides surrounded by the hallway where people used to chat, listen to music, do sports. If you see windows on the pics, those are windows to the hallway. The description also says that the hostel is smokefree. I didn't see ppl smoking, but they must have because you could smell it. WIth no window in your room to get some fresh air, that's really bad. But it's cheap & kitchen is useful.

modern, good organized hostel in a very good location near the center in this very big city. great kitchen, wifi every time, very clean, I will come again


I really enjoyed my stay in the hostel, it's always clean, has got everything I need and has a perfect localization. The only problem was the taxi driver of the hostel, one Egyptian guy that was flirting with me, and because I didn't answer back he asked for more 1000 roubles in the destiny than the agreed with the reception of the hostel. I got really mad and I don't want to see him every again. Thanks

To be honest to the travelers , this is not a friendly hostel. People staying there are not travelers most of them. The people LIVING there always in a bad mood. People going for an work interview or actually living there. When get there in the entrance stinks coz a bunch of shoes there. I don't recommend to do the laundry there. Dryer doesn't work and they want you to twice to dry it is well. Just one guy of the crew is really friendly. The other just treat you like a government employee
