When we turned up at the hostel there was no one there. When we phoned the owner he said that our booking was cancelled without any explanation. This left us strafed in the middle of Moscow with our luggage and it was expensive to book another hostel at such late notice. I still haven't received a refund. DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOSTEL!!!!!


The caretaker of the hostel was incredibly helpful for us. We could easily get in contact with him if we needed anything. He did or washing for free! He helped us book a tour that was very difficult/impossible for us to do because we didn't speak a word of Russian. Breakfast is basic however always available. It consists of muesli and yoghurt, milk, tea and coffee. Wi-Fi was good. Highly recommended for the location alone. Easily walked into the city centre each day.

This accommodation was great, particularly for Moscow. Our room was large and clean. The staff was efficient, though not particularly warm or forthcoming with information. Make sure you read the (very clear) instructions about the location of the guesthouse, as it's not otherwise identifiable from the street.


The selling point here is location, but the deal breaker was the staff. My friend and I arrived at Moscow 7AM, we call the owner and he gave a damn for us. We have to wait until 11AM with our luggage to owner open the apartment. That wasn't cool. So be careful, if you go to this b&b make sure to arrive there at checkin period.

Hello, I'm sorry that it was not clear enough that our reception hours are from 10AM only. I hope next time you will have better experience with us. Best regards, Ruslan


It would be much better to have the title/sign at the front door (we arrived there in the evening and spent 10-15 mins to identify the place).
