Nice staff and great location. However, many people were living at the hostel and the atmosphere was terrible. The bathroom wasn't good as well.


We stayed only for a night... In our opinion not recommendable for long staying. Anastasia (front desk) is very helpful. Very hard to find, check how to get there before losing wifi connection ;) More like a "pension" for ppl that works in Moscow than a backpacker hostel... Although all of them very friendly. Maybe this is because of the low season.


First of all, the hosts are very very nice. The location is perfect, just a 10 minute walk to the Kremlin and it's just one street you walk. The bathroom and shower was a bit small, but I had no complaints because the hostel is very affordable. They send out international postcards for you and I sent out 6 for about 5 US dollars. My friends and parents will love it when they get them. I only stayed for one night but thank you for taking care of me! I will be back.

The hostel was pretty good, I stayed there with some friends and the staff was really kind and always trying to help. The bathroom some times stopped to have hot water and the security is ok, In general i definitely like and would recommend.


Finding hostel entrance in a first time, be little bit difficulte but main entrance is reaaly good, luxury and artistically colorfull place. I see same beds in a photos and I feel happy. I use a kitchen several times. Staff is helpfull, rules-guests are respectfull. I think that's really good price for Moscow center location this much of clean, hot, comfortable place to stay. I walk 5-6 mn for Arbatskaya Metro or 10-12 mn for Kremlin Palace, I like that. I loved my hostel and Moscow!


Loved the hostel would definitely stay again! Everyone was very friendly and helped us whenever we needed anything! Laura and Victoria :)
