It is absolutely easy to find us: you just need to get off the underground at Taganskaya or Marksistskaya station, cross the road and walk down Alexander Solzhenitsyn street as far as building 10 and turn right into the inner yard. You will immediately see our separate entrance with a big sign Avtor.

    I was lucky to choose this hostel, because the reviews are not fake as it happens with most of them in Moscow. It’s a great hostel, in a nice neighborhood, close to metro stations and to restaurants, shops and all that we need while traveling. It’s very quiet, neatly clean, comfortable, professional and with a cozy “fake rustic” design. The owner speaks perfect English, and the manager also can communicate well with foreign guests. It’s not very cheap, but the cheapest hostels in Moscow are real

    Hostel Author is a warm and welcoming place. The location is perfect in my eyes. Major attractions and train stations are very near. The facilities are new and spotless. The staff are truly friendly and helpful. Russia is a country where English is not widely spoken. The winter temperature is frigid. The day I arrived, the temperature was -16 degrees. A warm and nice hostel like Author is essential to your travel in Moscow.

    The hostel is close to markets, restaurants and metro! the staff is super nice and the place feels really secure as there is a good entrance door safety measure, even though Moscow feels very safe. The hostel is really nice and modern, the beds are comfy, it is a shame they don't provide big lockers to store bags for the day though. Also, because it was summer, the windows were left open, and it gets too noisy. Also, shoes need to be left at the entrance so it didnt smell good.
