This hostel has different kind of rooms. I get exactly what I looking for with very good value for money. The location cannot be better for exploring the city center of Moscow.
I was upgrade for a dorm with less people and didn't pay anything for this. The place is cozy, like home. Pretty clean as well. Less than 10 minutes from Red Square. Metro station and many restaurants nearby. The staff is very attentive. There is a man who is always there and helps with everything.
This hostel feels like home. Staffs are friendly. Their English is good enough for communication, though sometimes need a translator. There is no reading light and electric socket for each bed. The bed is noisy, a small move on the bed will wake up people who sleep on the same bed. The common area is small for people to interact. It is better to add a key for each room, because everyone can enter the room I stayed. And it is recommended to add lockers inside the room.
Just a Lovely hostel. Everything we needed was there and everyone was very friendly.
The hostal is one apartment that was refurnished to become a hostal. It feels cozy and nice inside, but be sure you won´t have much space to interact to other people (basic the common area is a very small living roon and the kitchen) and drinking inside the hostal is forbidden. They might allow you to drink a beer or two, but don´t expect to be talking in the living roon and drinking for much longer than that. If you are looking for a place to have some peace, you found it!
Ideal location, nice staff, all needed facilities. Only one regret: the common space was too small regarding to the number of people sleeping here, with the TV always on.
We had a great stay in the Ideal Hostel. Despite of the very good location, the staff was really kind and they were able to speak english very well. In addition, they kept the toilets and kitchen always very clean, making our stay there very pleasant.
The ideal hostel is located in a very lively district, in the center. There are a lot of shops and cafés nearby. The "ideal hostel" is worth its name: the staff is really kind and you feel at home with them.
Great location, for this money good value, but a lot of people in small place. Good for one or two, three nights. Staff was friendly but didnt speak much english. Thank you!
Great location, but other than that I didn't love it. It might have just been the time that I was there, but everyone really kept to themselves, not very social or friendly. The staff were ok, they seemed a bit bothered when they had to answer questions. It was fine for a night, but I wouldn't stay there again.

Despite properly booked this hostel, not only refused entrance, but instigated a weird event when one of the hostel long-timers loudly doubted my garments belong to me, even called the ambulance claiming I may need help; before that recommended another hostel due to 'large group coming, fully booked' (Master Hostel, in same building), the matter with disappeared expensive underwear and such and whether card was charged still not resolved. No 1 voice in hostel policies belongs to a girl guest.
The biggest pro is the location- from the hostel its really a 15 minutes walk to the Red place. Also the stuff is very helfpful. The biggest con is, that they provide only one toilet and one shower for the whole hostel. In addition in summertime it can be very hot, cause they don't have climatization there and when you leave the window open you can hear the construction work next to the building all night.
A supernice place to stay at, really, homey like few others I've stayed at on this trip. The staff is fabulous and will bail you out of jail if they have to. The place is cozy and clean. And well you can't get better location that this. Cheers AT
