  • This hostel is located on a dark street off the downtown area. It has a gate that must be raised for taxi to get into otherwise you will walk about a block to hostel. Breakfast is skimpy.

  • PROS - I think it's a great location and the reception staff seem like they are making an effort. CONS - Major security problems (door keys don't work so staff just tell you to prop doors open, they lost 3/4 locker keys for my dorm, and anyone entering walks by all dorms before reception!), shared a dorm with cleaning staff who won't turn off lights and talked on phone all night, bathrooms not cleaned often enough, some rude Russian long-term "guests", rooms near common room are VERY noisy. :(

  • Great place to stay at the heart of Moscow. Really enjoyed the location, the kitchen is good, you can watch a movie, there's a good & fast internet. Can't say if it is great for international customers, as I used russian to speak with staff. Although, there were people from US and they were enjoying the stay
