everything was good enough. the prices for both dorms and private rooms are quite normal (especially considering the great location in the center). my room was clean and i spent a safe night there. big kitchen+big living room where you can hang around with other guests, have meals, watch tv and so on... staff is friendly and speaks good english.

it was not my first time there and definitely not the last one))))) i think Moscow Home Hostel is the best place to stay in Moscow - close to the center, comfortable and friendly!


Very dirty. I don't think it was cleaned often and staff seemed like they couldn't be bothered with us


This is a hostel that mostly caters to Russian nationals rather than international travelers, which I wasn't aware of. Also, in the larger mixed dorm areas it is against hostel rules to consume alcohol, which was quite a bummer. Toilets were often covered in urine and when I wanted to arrange for a taxi to the train station, two different staffers suggested that I "just take the metro," even though I just got finished explaining that I have way too much luggage to do that.


Moscow Home-Hostel is catered towards Russian-speakers. If you're looking for English-speakers, I recommend you look elsewhere. The staff is very friendly (if you can speak Russian) and the rooms met my expectations. It was located not too far from the metro, so you'll be able to get around easily.


The photos on at the homepage are completely different than the real hostel. Neither the photo of the building looks like the real hostel, nor do the photos of the rooms. The hostel is in an old ugly and dirty building. The rooms are dirty, the beds are old (not like the photos), the bathroom was not clean at all and the kitchen is disgusting. It seems they took the photos in a completely different building. In summertime it is so hot in the rooms, I imagine in winter it is cold. Very bad hostel

Scattered within a 5-story old stalinist building,with other Hostels,various companies,residential flats etc,badly signed posted.Converted from office units,many lodgers are long-term-staying labourers,not a travellers feel.Good overnight security.Communal lounge on 5th,has only squeeze-tight six-seat sofa & 1 table in 30-beds unit so most people stay on their beds.Average kitchen,1 fridge (30 people),3 out of 5 showers within the kitchen! TV, 2 free internet desktops. O.K. Russian standard.
