I stayed in a single room for 5 nights, so my rating and review is based on this. The location was great, just a 10 min stroll to the Kremlin, and another 5 to the red square. The metro, supermarket and plenty of resterants all just a 5 minute walk. I did receive a very warm welcome from staff, however I have to agree with previous reviews regarding poor atmosphere, it's not a very social hostel. There was also occasionally a bit of a poor cleanliness issue. Overall very good value.

It's one of these Russians hostels with a bunch of people who actually live there. Most of them were kind of weird, so the atmosphere is very dodgy. I never felt confortable. Security is a joke. You lift the matress and you have access to the locker under the bed. Only a very nice girl spoke English from the staff, but she isn't around often, so you have to figure it out everything by yourself. Since many people live there, keeping the place clean seems hard. Location is very good though.

Oh so Indie House is a really nice place, very well located in the city center,close to the Kremlin and Red Square. The owners were really friendly and they speak very good English. The owners weren't present most of the time though.

NOTE: most bunks in the 16-bed room are actually CAPSULE-style, crawl-in cubbyholes - not for the claustrophobic, stifling in hot weather, and s.t. that should be DISCLOSED before sale. Lockers under the bed are a joke: Lose your key? No worries, just lift the mattress! Also, there's some weird notion that the TV must be on at all times, with volume - even if no one is watching - or our heads may explode. OTOH, staff are great (if you can find & identify them) and there really is a grand piano!

Was a bit of a strange hostel but it was interesting that's for sure. More like staying in a big Russian halfway house. I liked the atmosphere even though I didn't always feel comfortable. I don't think I would stay again but I have no regrets about my time spent here.
