Having only one shower and toilet serving 3-4 dorms meant there was a bit of a wait in the morning, but otherwise a great hostel, 25ish minutes walk from red square but close to the metro (which is the best you could hope for in such an enormous city), and staff who are really helpful and friendly.
I was blown away by how amazing the Soul Kitchen is. The bed, the rooms, and all the facilities were absolutely top-notch, and the decor of the place was just perfect. But the real highlight of my stay was the staff, who were always friendly, warm and helpful. I always felt at home, and was sad to leave after a week!
If you like waiting an age for any type of help at reception because the staff are busy serving drinks to bar patrons with little interest in anything but getting filthy drunk, this is the place for you.
Great little hostel with really friendly staff! Will definitely return if I'm in in the area again.
Decent enough living quarters around a very nice bar. The pillows provided are bizarrely thin and the bedside lights are too cold and poorly positioned to read by, but the vibe of the place and the price+quality of the drinks on offer at the bar, frequented by locals and tourists! more than made up for it.
