Nice hostel with excellent bathrooms, lockers and communal spaces. Very friendly with friendly staff. Lacking in atmosphere there, not a place to go to meet people or party as many of the guests are locals staying there for extended periods.
it was little hard to find but it is located in a conveneint place, actually there were supermarket and a number of restaurants near there and close from metro station
Conveniently located to metro and walking distance to Red Square, etc. Full kitchen, good wifi plus a computer to use, in old building (walk up 3 flights) but very modern inside. We had a large comfortable private room (not ensuite but there are 4 nice full toilet/shower rooms). They let us store our bag overnight. The only drawback if you have a street window is the cars that race during the wee hours. Staff had limited English but enough to get by.
A great hostel that I've been visiting for a few years now. I come from 'the village' to the big city and often use this place just as somewhere to get my head down. Clean, comfortable dorms, with new and comfy beds. Large kitchen for you to use if you wish and a small living room area. Great location in the centre, within walking distance to the main sights. Definitely worth a visit.
Great locatioh,helpful staff. It's on 5th floor not 3rd though, so get ready to climb :). I have a great time there
We would like to make a special mention of the staff member named Olga. She was fantastic! She spent (literally) hours of time researching how to get places and making little notes in Russian that we could hand to other people like taxi drivers and hotels. In one case she stayed past her knock off time to help us. We weren't demanding or being pushy, she did this all by her own decision and I really hope she is recognised for this. Tell her about this review if you meet her!
Very good but hard to find

Overall a decent hostel considering the cost. But the staff, cleanliness, and atmosphere make me not recommend this hostel. On our first day we were forced to wait 8 hours to check in only to be told our room had been booked for an extra night by someone else. The bathrooms were not that clean, nor was the kitchen. Staff were not helpful. Basically an unremarkable place to stay. Location was a major bonus, though.
