It was very nice to stay here. Her cats are great and friendly. An her flat is located in a good location. Easy to get around and is your way places.
The rooms are in the block of flats that is very difficult to find. Otherwise, Galina is very helpful lady and she really has 4 cute cats. There was some renovation going on during our stay. the room is big enough and clean. However, I could not claim the apartment is clean, so for those who prefer clean kitchen and no cockroaches, I would advise you to reconsider. However, if you are on a realy low budget or you would like to experience the real russian flat and family, Galina is the one.
You get what you pay for basically and is made very clear that this is a flat and not a hostel as such. Was interesting to stay here. The kitchen was not very clean but if you wash everything before you use it then no issues. Galina is very nice and speaks good English. Always helpful. If you don't like cats then definitely do not stay as she has cats and with cats comes the smell of cats.
We are very thankful to Galina because her help was very usefull to find our lost luggage. The hostel is in a good position, close to metro station and about 20 minute walking from the Red Square. It's an interesting experience staying in a russian home. Unfortunately the stairs are terribly smelly
It's a cheap hostel where u can sleep for few hours,and staff is nice.if u don't like cats and its smell,it would be better u don't go this hostel.but it's near city centre.and beds are not to bad,but dirty.
