  • Location is very very good - at the heart of the Moscow. Hostel is very crowded but still clean and secure. A lot of people stay here for a long term period (few weeks or month). There is all you need: fully-processed kitchen, locker rooms, showers, washer and dryer. And of course very friendly personnell, they also speak english very well. I recommend it for you.

  • Prototype of a typical hostel. It has friendly, helpfull and english speaking staff. Especially Mohammed was very good. Mostly Russian Guests with poor english knowledge. Rooms and facilities are clean and like they should be. Dorms are okay with lack of lockers. The surrounding area is only scenic T night when the towers enlightend. Greatest plus is central position. You cn reach red square within a 10 minutes walk and on the other direction the moscva river with the scenic moscow city towers.

  • Location information was so poor. I was struggled to find it. Asked to 6 russians to find the place. At least you can mention the building, company name near by or tell the entrance is behind of building.

  • A very big and busy hostel. Run like a hotel and thus the atmosphere is not very good. Shower room is not that clean, I think it is because too many people shared the shower. Staff didn't show me correct information even I asked for the nearest metro station. The door in my dorm never be closed and light never be on, as there is always someone sleeping or moving around
