clean hostel

Posted Oct 8, 2014 on Hotels.com
hostel was very clean but too many rules. they say a smoke free hostel but you can smoke on balcony next to kitchen area. the room arrangement is also odd to go to the private room you have to enter thru the 4 bed mens dorm so be aware of that i think they call the thai room which has a double bed. apart from that staff were friendly.area is very good where the hostel is situated

Dirty room - great location

Posted May 22, 2014 on Hotels.com
For the price it was well worth it, but count on having to clean the rooms yourself and occasional dry shower when there is no water at all. The staff is nice, but you have to speak Russian. I can't give a higher rating than 2 due to the cleanliness of the room. It made me wonder if the towel I used was clean or not when I got it, or the state of the sheets... But the location is wonderful, close to Kreml, Red square and Arbat street. Had the rooms been cleaned then I would definitely put up the rating. They do provide washingmashine and fully functional kitchen, which is an extra plus in the marginal. And for the price I could go again. ------ the place is really hard to find. Walk towards Lotte and on the opposite side of the street of Lotte is the building. Coming from the metro it is the first door, looking like a cellar door. There is an A4 sign about 2 meters above the ground with the hostel name on it, and on the door a small sign. Ring the bell and the staff will open the door for you, the proceede to the 4th floor. Hope it will help you find it, and enjoy your stay.

Not a word of English

Posted Jan 27, 2014
Pros: It is cheap and well located.
Cons: Airport pick up service.
Staff does not speak English at all. We asked the hotel for the airport pick up taxi, and they charged 2000 roubles, instead of the price that is in their web. The taxi duped us on the street, half a block from the hotel, and we spent one hour under the snow to find it, because we had not printed the address in russian, so none could help us. We thougth the hotel taxi wold take us to the hotel door.

The hostel have a good location but it is very poor signalized and it makes difficult to found. it is clean and safe. Nobody in the hostel speaks English or other language, only Russian and it can be a problem. In general, I recommend

Homely place

Posted Aug 13, 2013 on Hotels.com
It is situated at a convenient place and the hostel was a much better experience than I expected. Finding the hostel was the only problem I had as I did not know which door to open and the sticker for the place was tiny. Overall a good stay and at an affordable price.
