When we finally did the check in, the...

Old, dirty, very strange atmosphere. Staff asking me for tourist tax money (you need to pay only once, and we paid it in Saint Petersburg). Only the location is good and also wi-fi. But avoiddddd. We stayed in the private room, it was outr lucky. Even so it was very very small, the water was coming out from toilett shower.

From what I can gather this used to be a great place. When we stayed there we were told in no uncertain terms that they had a party whilst we were there and they couldn't care less if we stayed or not. They proudly display their Trip Advisor award from 2007, but I fear those days have passed.

Very nice place (Moscow downtown, about 10 minutes from Kremlin when walking), nice personnel and moderate prices for staying (about 20 USD per night), round-a-day open even at 1.00 a.m., subway station nearby

It is cheap place indeed but...

Good hostel for few days between friends. No far from metro and town center. the negative point of this international hostelling is that it's noisy. padlock and closed boxes equip the rooms for personnal affairs.

Very central location,close to the Red Square .There is no room for leaving the luggage, therefore I slept with the luggage in my bed . Just 1 shower for 30-maybe 40 people. Compensate with a very cheap price

The hostel is in a very good location, a short walk from Red Square. There is no left luggage room which I wasn't too happy about as luggage is left in a corridor. Staff are very helpfull and it's good value for money.

The hostel: I stayed 4 days because i paid for them, but it would have been 1. why? 1. The waitres is never at her place and really does not help in very much, she is more of being on facebook , playing loud music and bringing a russian horde of people to the hostel than anything else. 2. The...
