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.
They need security lagege boxes. Somebody stole computer from room from one guy. The police came but they didn't find who stole computer from that guy.

Location and stuff are very good, its very close to city centre and Kiyevska vokzal, but other important features are bad, I think that the hostel must be more clean (kichen, tiolites and rooms), rooms have a specific odor.The hostel was not the one shown in the picture (I think the first one picture is not hostel).
