Overall is good.

It's a decent hostel, but most the guests appear to be Russians that are living there or staying long term and the ones in the female dorm were a bit bitchy about their space/stuff/etc... not really a communal hostel-style atmosphere. Everyone speaking Russian. Otherwise good wifi, clean, quiet, very helpful staff and easy to find.

Location is brilliant, 10minute walk to red square and let's face it, Moscow is a great walking city (when not snowing). Directions from airport and metro were very handy. Lots of great little restaurants/bars near by. Clean, easy access, we had a private double bed which was fine. Only criticisms would be lack of atmosphere, lack of staff recommendations for local places to go etc. Other hostels try and create a real community feel and get everyone together and doing things. I found iVAn did no

Very nice hostel! I recommended it highly. Quiet and subdued atmosphere. Lots of staff who speak English very well. The last hostel I stayed in was a little chaotic. You will not be disappointed in Ivan Hostel.

Good hostel in the heart of Moscow (approx. 20 minute walk to Red Square). Nikolai especially is a great help and speaks perfect English. The hostel is obviously an old converted Soviet-era apartment so there is only one bathroom which is definitely the major pinch-point, especially if travelling during the high season. But the kitchen is workable, the internet works, and the bed was fairly comfortable by Russian standards. Definitely a more utilitarian place to stay, but totally fine. Recommend

It's a great hostel in a great location! The guys who work the reception are very helpful (something very appreciated in a city where barely no one speaks English). The only problem is that there is only one shower and one toilet...

Good hostel in an excellent location, less than 10 minutes walk from the kremlin. Easy to find (not common for hostels in Russia), you will see signs saying iVAN hostel on the door. Extremely good wifi (many differents routers, so it doesnt become slow at night when everybody is using it). Good english speaking managers. One weak point, few bathrooms... just a bath and a toilette. I had a good stay at iVAN hostel...

Superb guesthouse in the very center of the city. The style of the flat is very typical of Russian building. Very clean and very nice staff.

I had an excellent stay at iVAN hostel in Moscow in December 2014. I found it to be a great place, organized in a very functional manner, where staff was incredibly nice and helpful - awesome job !

Great location near red square just 10 mints on foot . Location is really perfect ! Rooms are clean , there is just one toilet and bathroom for all . Its a little bit bad if many people stay in the same time . Highly recommended to stay in Ivan Hostel . Everything is convenient for you especially the price :)))

Small place with a familiar/personal environment. Very friendly and supportive staff, helped me with a lot of nice tips. Good location, close to metro station, fair price. Too small if you intend to spend many days (one bathroom for everybody for example). Otherwise, it worth the visit.

Best Hostel in Paris but a little bit small.

Really friendly staff, let me book by phone the next day when I unexpectedly had to stay another night. Clean rooms with big lockers. Nice kitchen. Only problem is there's one shower room but it's not a problem if you plan it right (I showered in the evenings). Excellent location.
