This hostel is quite hard to find, you have to really pay attention to the street and housenumber and let the receptionist downstairs call the hostel. The hostel itself is clean, has a friendly staff and is good located to visit the city. My friend and I had a very small room with a bunk bed and no heating control... More

Great place if you want to spend time (and in my case NYE) in Moscow! Igor and Kate are very nice! Very helpful and awesome people! I don't agree at all with the "unfriendly staff comments" - be nice and friendly to people and they will be friendly towards you! The hostel is near the Kremlin, good location for tourist... More

We stayed here in November 2012 and were Yuri's first clients. Everything was spotless, which makes sense since no other tourists had been there yet. The hostel has a functional kitchen, nice common quarters (a living room with a big TV) and a very friendly and helpful manager (Yuri). Everything is modern and friendly. It is very close to the...

Staff are very unfriendly, the atmosphere is sterile, there are two showers and two toilets for the whole hostel, and very strange clientele hanging about. Stayed for four days with friends and never really felt comfortable here. 1000 rouble deposit for key is extortionate, and rooms aren't cheap anyway. Location is really good, but I would not stay at this... More

This hostel in the heart of the city of Moscow was really a great choice. The place is really close to Arbat street, The Red Square, metro stations (Borvitskaya and Arbat), the Kremlin and a lot more. The owner was kind enough to change my reservation after doing a side trip to St. Petersburg. It was unfortunate that I experienced... More

We had no problem at all except for noisy guests at our first night. The location is just great and the facilities were in good working order. Red Square and Pushkin Museums are at walking distance. It is a flat inside a building without a signtable and it is not easy to find someone to help you around there so... More

I was very satisfied with this hostel. Nice staff and rooms are clean, well located hostel, near to the metro station. What I liked, it had a fast Wi-Fi connection. I could use the internet without problems. The drawing-room is big and cosy, you have enough place to do something. It was pleasant to stay there.

The hostel is very close to Arbat street (where you can shop and eat). It is also close to Church of the Christ Savior and Kremlin. Just less than 10 min walk. And 5 min walk to nearest metro station. The staff in the hostel is very helpful. Another good thing is that the security is quite high. Because you... More

Staying in Khamovniki

Neighbourhood Profile
Khamovniki could be considered a city of its own – here it’s possible to find some of Moscow’s most important cultural institutions such as the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, the Novodevichy Convent and Trubetskikh Estate, great sport locations such as Luzhniki stadium and aqua complex, and long and beautiful Luzhniki embankment. Pick your preferred form of transport to explore the area – bicycle or river cruise during the summer and taxi in winter as many of the great places are situated beyond a short walk.
