Nice Hostel, street difficult to find, signs outside will help, perfect location, 5 min walking kremlin, metro, market, nice surrounding, staff very nice and speaks English. Not happy with registration for foreign people 550 rbs, others hostels make it for free and in the airport don't even see the paper, they say it's law so do it but should be not expensive. Laundry available for 100 rbls with soap, towels, lockers with key, good space area for share. Very nice place to stay.


Anton and the staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating in assisting me in booking train tickets and providing directions. The dorms are a bit cramped and there are no locks on the doors, but overall a good hostel in a great location.


Moldy caulking and clogged drains in the showers made for a bad experience. Bathrooms were smelly bathrooms from people leaving feces in garbage bins that were not emptied. Hostel was also really hot all the time to the point were we didn't want to hang out there because the four of us would get headaches. Could be a great place if these are fixed.


Positives: - Reasonable price - Excellent location - Good lockers - Good kitchen facilities - Some helpful staff Negatives: - Boiling hot inside and staff refused to turn heating down. - No enforcement of no-noise-at-night policy. - Toilets and showers not cleaned frequently. - Towels provided are really hand-towels. - Questionable security as each room only has one key and anyone from outside could come in and walk through the entire hostel before getting to reception.


Excellent hostel. Great location. Other guests staying were AMAZING! It gets very hot at night in bed (even at this time of year) so pack light pj's!!

Tickets service is great. Also they can give you umbrella for a walk.
