The hotel is hard to find, off an courtyard behind the building that is located on the main street where the address is located. So look for the drive next to the front building on the main road, walk to the building behind and look for signs with Penquins on them. You have to ring the bell and be buzzed in ,then go to the 2nd floor. The room was very small with basic firm bed but it was clean and had a window. The bathrooms are shared , as well as a small shared kitchen and a shared lounge type area with a couple couches. There are 2 showers which are individual seperate rooms & we didn't have to wait when we wanted them. The is not anyone at the desk at night so be aware of this. Overall it was reasonably priced, right next to the metro, a short walk to the main tourist sites, clean decent bed, good showers, and use of kitchen if desired--all one needs.
Pros: Great location. Reasonably priced. Clean
Cons: Directions to locate hostel
Location: Kremlin and many tourist sites and river within easy walking distance
