Gali`s a great woman. Excellent place to hang out that lacks the professionalism of a true hostel (with the accompanying benefits and annoyances). Id say its definitely a go if you're looking for a russian moscow experience, a no go for people keen on hygiene


Don't let you scare off too easily by the comments about the cleanliness. Galina's flat doesn't offer the 'grand luxe', but is cleaned very frequently. Highly recommended if you really want to get to know Moscow and even some fellow travellers!

I loved staying here. Galina is really kind and helpful. The flat is about 30 minutes walk from red square and is small and homely. However I can't rate it too highly as it isn't very clean, but next time I'm in Moscow I will no doubt stay with Galina again.


Beside the sowiet style of the flat - which is in fact an experience - we didn't like our stay here. Flat Owner Galina wasn't really a hospitable person. I missed some nice chattings and secret hints, what to do in Moscow. And it was the first time we had to put linen (which were even too short) on the bed by ourselfs in a hostel. No problem with cats, but the whole stairway were smelling and the cats didn't look healthy at all. Seems like the owner got bored of having guests since a while.


We only stayed for one night, but it´s a really nice place, with very freindly staff. The flat is located really near to the city centre. So all in all, a really nice place to stay when you are visting Moscow and dont need the comfort of an hotel.


It is actually flat of a woman. She speaks English very well and she is helpful if needed. Price reflects on cleanliness or security. Cats are very nice there but it could be a problem if you got an allergy. Flat is soviet union style and it was a nice experience to be there.
