Thanks for your hospitality. The staff was a great help in our stay in Moscow.

Great hostel and a very comfortable stay! A slightly different feel from many hostels because there are so many longer term residents, but this didn't bother us.

3 days in the Faro hostel and I can only say good things about it! The name made me feel in my country hehe. 2nd: All the time i arrived from my 4/5 hours walking/cycling had a good relax environment to rest. And 3rd (the most important for me): The people! The staff was amazingly nice. Very friendly, easy talking, etc. I need to say a special compliment to Antonia. She is the kindest person I met working in a hostel... We spoke, we ran in the morning and even had a night walk. She is the best!


Very bad.. Many people living there.. They dont have space for other persons


Mostly people living there which kind of ruins the 'hostel' vibe. Location is spot on though and the staff are nice.


Doesn't have a hostel atmosphere at all. The four people private room is hot as hell in summer time, you just can't sleep after the sun rises. Unfriendly staff. I would never recommend to anyone. Only plus is the location, which is excellent .


Toilets, showers are very nice. Most of all, the staff was really kind.

Excelent hostel


Very good/central location and a very clean place - good value, but not a place to meet other travelers since a bunch of people life there actually, still a nice place in case you just want to explore the city!
