Very satisfied with my experience at Godzillas. Clean and convenient. Nicest staff member was Vladimir. Good mixture nationalities.


Really enjoyed my stay at Godzillas -- thanks in no small part to the friendly and very helpful English-speaking staff. Very much appreciated the free coffee!


Perfect stay :)


Very helpful staff, nice clean hostel and easy to get to via train.


A great hostel, one of the best I have stayed in. The hostel is very clean and when we stayed, there were plenty of interesting fellow backpackers to chat to in the common room. The location is great and the staff were very friendly. Its very easy to get to from the metro, and there are a few good bars and eateries nearby. Very highly recommended for a short stay in Moscow!!


Everything was alright, I have nothing to complain about. The location is good, the metro is just a few minutes away, the staff is alright, the place is really clean, and that's it.


Godzillas Hostel is worth the stay! Excellent staff who speak fluent English.

You can't pay with credit card, only cash (roubles).


It's a hotel not a hostel. No friendly environment of travellers meeting. The staff didn't try to make it accommodating.

I dont know why this hostel has so many good reviews. There is absolutely NO atmophere for travelers. Except Svetlana, staff is not friendly or nice. The manager doesnt care about us, maybe he is just interested in his money. nha


Staff was not meeting my requests. I tried repeatedly to book a night in a 4 bed dorm, but the girl in the reception booked a single room for the double price anyway. And when I realized what she had done, she said she was not able to change the booking which she had made just a few minutes ago. Also, she didn't inform me about the deposit, which made a hassle for both me and my friend (who was just showing me the way to the hostel) to collect enough money without going to the ATM a second time.

Hostel was very good value for the money, but was in a very boring location. Also, when I asked for a quick local bite of food, I was recommended to go to the Burger King hah. Upon further questions though, I was given a few local Russian restaurants. Check-in was very easy, showers were clean and warm, beds were nice, and all went smoothly. Would definitely recommend this to the cost-conscious traveler looking for an easy hostel experience.


The hostel is amazing! It is situated approximately 15 minutes walking from the Red Square, in a really quiet and safe neighbourhood. The staff is amazing as well, always ready to help you. They speak good English in the hostel as well, which is something you can't find everywhere is Moscow! Had a great time here.


I heard here is one of the most famous place in Moscow. But I cannot understand about them. in our trip, moscow is quite hot. but it dont have any ventilation roads, and also dont have air-conditioner. So, we cant sleep well all trip (it is really terrible memory i think). and staffs says they offer us coffee in free. but in last day. we knew about coffee is empty, so we require this. but staff dont solve this prob even if after our checkout. memory in this hostel is the worst thing in our trip.


I've visited a few hostels in moscow. I can say that this is probably the best hostel in Moscow. The only thing I didn't like is the fact that there is no big common room to meet other people but they have 3 smaller rooms/kitchens. The TV-room that is supposedly the common room would have been better if they didn't have eurosport loudly running 24 hours a day. That really killed the atmosphere. Maybe knock the wall down and open that room up to the hallway?


This is a huge hostel with 3 floors which means there's a big chance to meet new people from all the parts of the world but there was almost no common rooms to meet up. The location is not so good because there's no touristic places around. Friendly and helpful staffs.
