Twin room was nice, but showers and other toilets were not good, showers were freezing cold if they worked at all. Not a very friendly atmosphere in the hostel either
This hostel is located in one of the oldest part of Moscow. Mere klimetr from metro station Kitai-Gorod. The environment of the hostel is very friendly. You can wash, dry and iron your clothes. Social space is a place where you can meet other hostel guests, chat with, make friends, or eat. Hostel offers breakfast, coffee, tea, and other things to buy. All three receptionists are willing and ready to help you with any question.

We could find the staffs in the reception almost the time and they are helpful and informative. The hostel has a great common room for free chatting with other backpackers. This hostel provide a good platform for backpackers. We also appreciate their environmental awareness and promotion.
I had only a nice time

Our stay was short 2 nights. We have done what we want to do in Moscow that's it! Shower are not very clean and practical to use --> they are in the kitchen!
This hostel was in a good area easily accessible from the main train station and Red Square. It was also close enough to two metro stations. The facilities were good but having the showers in the kitchen was a bit offputting. That said, the dorms, common room and kitchen were good. The staff weren't overly friendly and could do with some more english practice and some customer services lessons. It may sound a bit picky but we struggled to get a hello and goodbye out of them.
Positive comments: Very clean and tidy bedrooms, "free market" of clothes to pick and leave things, good kitchen facilities. Negative comments: only one bathroom working!, the showers are in the kitchen, DONT HAVE MAPS!!, the staff A DISASTER (didn t know where the main attractions were, bad mood and bad humoured all day, don t know bars or restaurants to recomend), poor wifi connection. Very poor and unclear indications to arrive. Important point: must bring slippers!!!
This was a really good place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone and certainly go back there myself. i really liked it. They were friendly and helpful. It was warm, near useful shops and easy walking distance to tourist sites if that's what you like. Really good place.
