Property Description

My name is Galina Solovieva. For more than 16 years the doors of my flat are open for the travellers from all over the world. It is all started in 1994, when I've first met modern nomads at Yaroslavsky railway station, the Trans-Siberian terminus. Actually my flat has become the first and only one hostel in Moscow for many years. It is located in a historic neighborhood just in 20 minutes walk from Red Square and Kremlin. It is listed in many guide-books like Lonely Planet, Let's Go, Frommer's and so on.

Nowadays there are about 54 hostels in Moscow, but my place is different. Yes, it is just that - a private, basic Soviet-era flat with 2 rooms that I rent out. Hope, it gives you the rare opportunity to see inside a typical Russian home - indeed, to be welcomed in and to experience the life of a Muscovite. The close quarters also make it a good spot to hook up with other travellers. My place is a favorite with low budget backpackers of all ages looking for personal sightseeing advice, late-night chats over tea or beer or cheap beds for good sleep after long journey.

Just, please bear in mind two facts: my flat is on the 5th floor and there is no lift, and I do love cats, which means I do have cats. Well, you are very welcome to my place. See you in Moscow. Sincerely yours, Galina

    Really nice owners of the loft. Location is hard to find, you have to enter an alleyway into a courtyard with entrances to multiple buildings, but google maps does have numbers for each building and her building is #8 (I had to ask locals to find it originally). Once you see the cats or the pigeons you are probably at the correct building. Room is what you would expect. The bathroom and shower have private door entrances so that's nice compared to most hostels. No curfew. Would recommend!

    Excellent location, Galina is such a nice and kind host. The value for money is fair, but the location I would say is the best, close to the areas where things are happening.

    The location was very convenient, but at the beginning the building is a bit tricky to find. Once you get used to the area, there's no problem. The building and the house need to be renovated and improved, although you only stay there to sleep since there's a lot to do and see in the city. Galina and her husband were nice, and the cats didn't really disturb us. We think the price was a bit too much, but for being the world cup, it was expected.

    I got an email a week before check in that they are renovating the apartment. I would have loved to get that information before I booked as I came from a 7 day train ride on the Siberian expecting a little bit more comfort. It’s a mess. It’s dirty, no hot shower, I saw bugs on the wall next to the bed. I love cats, but two of them have worms and one has a badly infected eye. I expected an authentic Soviet apartment, but got an infested renovation project without warning. Galina is very kind.

    I've never left a hostel before but the smell of cigarettes and cat piss that permeated through this place was enough to see me seek alternative options immediately.

    Location is far away from metro. Not clean, cats everywhere. If you compare with other places a little bit expensive even during the World Cup. Just one toilet, and the place is really hard to find. No signs or anything. Staff is helpful and nice but not good value for the money I paid.

    How is this allowed on Hostelworld?! I’m beyond serious. The photos look NOTHING like the actual place at ALL! Aside from the seven cats which live here (and the revolting stench which came with them), this place is FILTHY! The bedding was visibly dirty, there were exposed wires, peeling wallpaper, broken appliances. I’m not a picky person in the slightest, but it felt as if I was staying in a ghetto. Not only would I not recommend this filthy hovel to anyone, I’d advocate it to be removed!!
