The Fort Hostel is located right in the heart of York. We checked in on a Friday night at the busy Kennedy's Bar, but this wasn't a problem and we were processed very quickly. A little bit of outside noise came through the windows, but nothing unbearable. Only one bathroom to share amongst 8 people, but again this wasn't a problem. We booked out a dorm and a double room so had exclusive access to the kitchen and bathrooms - perfect! Highly recommend and would definitely stay again.

Godzillas was well placed, close to a Metro station. A bit of a walk from Red Square, but the Metro is so handy it wasn't a problem. Staff were extremely helpful, able to offer suggestions on many places we wanted to go. We stayed in private double room, sufficiently spacious, shared bathroom very clean and newly renovated. Definite recommend!
Fantastic location, on the main street and close to all attractions and transportation networks. The staff were very helpful, even telephoning Moscow to find something out for us for our next stop! The front room was a bit noisy with street traffic, but nothing ear plugs can't fix! Be aware that there's no lift and the hostel is on the 5th floor - not really a problem if happy to not be too lazy. Definitely recommend - thanks for a great stay!
This is an excellent hostel, newly constructed with all the mod cons. It's in a small country town, so options for acommodation are limited, but this hasn't stopped Godzillas from providing everything the traveller needs. Directions to the hostel are easy to follow, but when I caught the bus from Moscow to Vladimir, it cost 350 rubles, not 200. The hostel is in a lovely location with the river out the front and the owners are very welcoming. Recommended!
Location is quite close to a main metro/train station, however I arrived at 11pm and it was down a dark and dingy street. The directions are ok, but difficult without Cyrillic translations (none of the signs in the Metro, nor the street signs are in English!). The entryway run down and dirty, and there's a cat in the hostel which isn't in the description. The facilities are ok, but overall it was quite a dirty and intimidating place, with practically no security. Ok for a few hours sleep.
Great location near the main station. On the 5th floor, only one shared toilet (women) and one shared shower (unisex) for the whole floor, but this wasn't a problem for me (some rooms may have private bathroom). 1st floor room with private bathroom had soap and body wash and a hairdryer. All single beds (no bunks), lots of space, secure storage for day of checkout, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. You can't beat the location, highly recommend!!!
