Hostel location is fantastic however the hostel I found quite average, mainly due to cleanliness and security. Lots of people living in the hostels; not an issue but the dorms are often a big mess with clothes, beers and junk in the rooms. This is the guests' fault however nothing is enforced, not even for 'residents'. Lots of things go missing; most commonly food from the fridge, but also a phone and personal item from other guests. There are cameras but it still happens and isn't addressed.
its a very nice hostel, the location is excellent, right in the city center and next to the subway station, good value for money.
Napoleon is only a few minutes walk to Red Square and even closer to the Metro. It is on the fourth floor (no lift) so bear that in mind if you have heavy suitcases. The staff were very helpful, going the extra mile to sort things for us. It was good to have staff that spoke our language (English) when it came to booking tours etc. We were far from home (New Zealand) and the staff made us very welcome - would definitely stay there again when I return to Moscow.
