Very large hostel, so I found it oddly hard to meet people. Very nice kitchen, good free breakfast, great loacation and staff. I'd probably stay here again

My favourite hostel during my trip to Russia. Perfectly central, great employees, and I love that you can have guests inside until 11pm. The kitchen was well stocked and rooms were spacious. Just a bit cold at night time.

The taxi pick up from the train station was way way way overpriced at 35$ Canadian. We didn't know Moscow when we arrived so we paid, to learn later it was far too expensive. Other than that the free coffee and popcorn was great and the rooms were clean. Beds squeaked a LOT. I'd stay again though, just figure out other transportation from the train.

Nearly impossible to find, but the girl we talked to said they are working on making better directions. Staff were friendly and helpful, beds were comfy and the whole place was immaculately clean. Very small kitchen/common room and only one bathroom which meant lining up in the mornings. Really nice though! We met lots of fun people and I'd stay again.

Very very difficult to find with the directions. The staff that greeted us were nice, but our room seemed to be all live in people who stayed up really late in the room with the lights on rather than the common room. That being said: bed was nice, bathrooms and kitchens were clean, and the girls working were helpful. Next time if spring for a hotel though.

I felt unsafe walking in this area at night. It's a bit far from the centre for me, and I ended up switching hostels for the rest of my stay because I didn't want to walk 15 minutes to and from the centre through an area that made me feel unsafe. The rooms were clean and the shower was amazing. I'd definitely stay here if I was just in UB for a train stop over. Internet didn't work well. No social area, I met 2 guys at the bar who were staying here and we'd never seen each other at the hostel.

Probably the most uncomfortable beds I've ever had in a hostel. Basically wooden planks with foam that feels like its long worn out. I was taking the trans Mongolian, and the beds in the 2nd class train were FAR nicer. That said: not a bad place to spend a few nights. Staff were often confused about simple questions so best be self sufficient.

Very poor wifi that never seemed to work. My room was entirely live-in guests, and then myself. They were really messy and the hostel didn't seem to care. I feel like their should be a limit on how long you stay in a room or be required to clean up after yourself. Having a room full of live in english teachers also made it hard to make friends - everyone felt very cliquey.

Great location, good for a few days. Clean sheets and nice views of the sea. When we checked in, we were greeted by a very rude man who didn't speak English, and had lost our booking. Later, after we had been checked in, paid, and already explored the city, we came back to the hotel to be told we had to pay again and we were in the wrong room by a different man who was also rude. Very confusing.

I got completely destroyed by bed bugs on my first night here, staying in Oasis (the all girls room downstairs). But when I came up at 4am with visible bites on my arms and face, the guy behind the counter very quickly put me in a private room, and told me I would be able to do free laundry if I wanted (I was only traveling for a week, so I didn't need to). Basically more a hotel than a hostel.

Nothing special to see here. Decent place, clean, nice location... I didn't like the card system to get into the hostel - you need to have your room card (just a piece of paper) and you have to show it to the person at the desk if you want to get inside your room. No food downstairs and no kitchen. I'd stay elsewhere next time, even though this place was ok.

A big hostel, which sometimes makes it harder to meet people. The staff were great, and the daily events were nice. The kitchen was one of the best I have ever seen in a hostel - so clean and well stocked! Right next to a supermarket, and only 5 minutes from the center. Would definitely stay here again.

I don't know if I was here during a bad time, because this hostel was recommended to me by a friend. But it wasn't very clean, the staff was rarely around, and when they were, they mostly sat in the kitchen smoking while at their computers. The bed's sheets appeared to not be changed when the guests changed, and I got bed bug bites. I wouldn't stay here again.

Very close to Leisdeplein, which was really nice. A bit hard to find from the train station for me, but I definitely prefer this area of town the the red light district. No kitchen, which kind of sucked.

Great staff, very clean, really good free breakfast that goes until 11am... The activity nights made socializing very easy, you never had to really worry if you would meet someone. The staff really went out of their way to help you, and also hang out with you. My only complaint is the bunks were very wiggly. I'd stay here again, though!

Average overall. Some confusion over my booking and the number of days and how I paid. VERY loud. The first few nights I stayed on a top bunk and anytime I moved, or the person below me moved, it shook the whole frame. The last night I was on the bottom and it was better, though. Not BAD but I would seek out somewhere else next time.

One of the better hostels I have stayed at - mind you, this was at the Tallinn Backpackers, NOT the skyview. skyview is in another building, but operating through the backpackers. Good and clean and very, very fun. Very relaxed also, I could see it being an easy place to get stuck.

In a really bad area of town. I stayed here for the free ride from the airport, as I was only in LA for 1 day before moving on. The free food was really good, dinner, snacks, 24 hour coffee and tea. I would stay here again, but not if I was traveling alone. Seemed like there were some perminant residents living in various rooms that put off some of the guests. Lots of creepy-ish older men hitting on young girls in the bar.

I had trouble with a roommate one night who was snoring so loud no one else in the room could sleep. The hostel workers were nice enough to re-locate us for the night, which is really unusal, but was seriously appreciated by us all. Also helped me find a walk in clinic when I needed one, very friendly, easy to talk to, good location, clean and simple. Free toast, jam, tea and coffee, good kitchen set up.

i had problems with the shuttle busses - you werent always guarenteed to get on one. i spent one day waiting for 2 hours before I finally took a cab with some other put-off guests. seemed like a good place otherwise, lovely beds with little curtains, nice bar, people were friendly. wouldnt stay again though, the was too expensive (2 pound 50 return), an unreliable. very often it didnt even leave on time, leaving 15 minutes early....

The best hostel I have been at in Europe... well decorated, amazingly stocked kitchen, air conditioned rooms! They even had a play one of the nights that I was there, which was free to hostel guests. It was in Italian, but the Italians seemed to really enjoy it. Free movies to watch, a bar, free breakfast (skimpy, but what is new for a hostel). I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

It was SO hot. I slept in the big dorm room, and woke up dripping sweat. Has a lot to do with the time of year, but other than the heat (which was all over the city), it wasn\'t so bad. good lock up at front, staff was helpful, and the dryer actually dried clothes! I would stay here in the down season when its colder... very good location within walking distance to museums and sights, and an amazing gelato place.

a very nice hostel with a good location and mostly friendly staff. lots of stairs, though there there is an elevator. the staff was very helpful at helping find things to do in the city. internet was a bit expensive, and the kitchen was understocked, but none to bad. I have stayed at much worse! bathrooms were clean, also.
