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 :)

I was truly impressed with the service, the warm welcome, friendly and professional manner of the receptionist. I would not hesitate to recommend this hostel to friends, Ideal place to stay, great value for money!


I have a very good stay in Baby Lemonade Hostel in St Petersburg before I move over to Moscow. If I will to compare these two So Indie Hostel has a lot to catch up with Baby Lemonade Hostel.


Really helpful staff and nice place. I would recommend and stay again.


Great location! Very helpful staff let us have a nap after our morning arrival on the train and helped with a very speedy registration.


This hostel was perfect in every possible way. Nice and clean, excellent dormitories with curtains for the beds. Very friendly staff, great location, five minutes walk from the kremlin.


Excellent place to stay.. Highly recommended for everyone!

I liked my stay at "Oh So Indie" very much. The staff is very nice (special thanks to Vita!!). They help you with every questions you have, give good hints for St. Petersburg and are there all the time. This makes the atmosphere very familiar. When I was there, many of the gueste made a cooking-evening and everyone prepared food of his home-country! The hostel is not spotlessly clean, but this doesn't matter. I always would prefer such a nice, agile Hostel, instead of a boring, totally clean one

Staff and location are great!!!!! But the place is in desperate need of renovations... Specially the shower/toilets facilities. Other then that, I would be back!


Everything is expensive in Moscow, so the hostel cannot be the exception. However, the location is excellent 10 min walking from Red Square and it's clean (kitchen, bedroom, bathroom) . The staff is very nice and helpful. I spent 3 nights there and in my opinión, it's an excellent option in Moscow
