Artel Artistic Hostel
Welcome to Moscow's first art concept hostel. Located across the street from Red Square & The Kremlin, you will be amazed by our location!
Our hostel is new, opened in the summer 2009 and fully renovated. We are located in the historical former Central Bath House of Moscow, built in 1891. We have 3 floors in our complex - the first floor is the upscale bar "Barbarello", the second floor is the bohemian art club "Masterskaya" which has live concerts 3 to 4 nights per week. Our hostel occupies the third floor.
The rooms of the hostel has been completely renovated and designed by a different Russian artist, so each room is unique. Each room has it's own individual bathroom and is rather large, about 20 m2. We offer either 2, 3 or 4 bed rooms with lots of space.
Our club Masterskaya on the floor below us offers wonderful couches and chill-out areas which function as our common room. Here you will be able to mix with many young Russians as well as our hostel guests. Hostel guests will receive preferred access to Masterskaya club events. Please note that we do not offer self-service kitchen facilities for our guests as we offer a fully functioning restaurant in Masterskaya club.
Artel is a joint venture between the American owners of the leading Suharevka hostel in Moscow and the owners of several of Moscow's leading clubs including "Zhiguli". Our western management will offer you a high level of friendly customer service. Our reception is open 24 hours per day and our receptionists are fluent in English.
Our travel desk can assist you in arranging visa invitations to Russia as well as airport taxi pickup (additional charge).We offer free wi-fi in the hostel (bring your own computer).
