Nice staff, but sometimes they were a little bit rude. I think it was just a misunderstanding of two not native english speakers. We needed to get out of the room one day before 10:30 with ours bags because of a fumigation or something in the hostel in the afternoon. Was not a big problem, but they told us just the night before. Room, showers and common areas well clean, but toilets could be better.


Good solid choice overall. Fellow guests are mostly friendly Russians, with a couple of lodgers. Good location and price for Moscow. Free tea and coffee was a nice touch. Big big pluses were the cleanliness and ability to drink alcohol in the hostel - many others in Moscow do not allow it. Tip for visitors: don't bother with the expensive supermarket across the road on Petrovka ul. as five minutes' walk north takes you to a cheaper and more authentically Russian 'produkti'.


This hostel has a good balance between price-location-facilities; the only thing they need to work is with the signals to get there because at the beginning I got lost and most of the people in Russia don't speak English...


I liked the location and the staff was helpfull and the free tea was a nice touch. The room was clean and the atmosphere was nice. Overall a good choice and enjoyable

Dear Oleg, thank you for your review. We appreciate your estimation of our hostel such as advising to stay with us. We hope you enjoyed your visiting Moscow and waiting for you again! Best wishes, SafariHostel team.


The only bad thing of this hostel is that the door was oftenly open and there was only one key for the room, but beside that it's perfect!

Dear Au Kwok, Thank you for your review and for your advice. Unfortunately according to the local regulations we cannot indicate our hostel from the main road, but we already found a way out and are making a reality of it. What of the rest, we got it and we wll make all the possible to fix the inconveniences you noticed. We hope you liked our hostel and enjoyed your staying in Moscow. We are waiting for your coming back! Cheers, SafariHostel team.
