This place was comfortable. The room was small. But if you just want to have a place to stay because you are going to go through the city most of the time, this is the place to stay. It is near the Circus and the Tverskoy Metro. The best thing is that is really cheap. And if you are in a budget you can also cook there. It has a shared bathroom. The people that work there do not speak very good english but is manageable. Good place overall.

A very nice hostel in the cent....
This hostel is a great option for spending a couple of nights or so in Moscow. It's situated very close to the center of Moscow, 3-5 minutes on foot from Tsvetnoy Bul'var metro station, about 25-30 minutes on foot from the Red Square. There's a dormitory and single, double rooms. We were staying in a double for 2 nights, and the price was VERY reasonable, especially considering the location of the hostel. The girls at the reception were very friendly and helpful.We arrived early before check-in, and they let us leave our bags and use bathrooms and the kitchen. On departure day after the check-out we left the bags at the hostel and wandered around Moscow for several hours. As we had 4 large bags, it was very convenient to leave them at the hostel, not somewhere in the lockers on a railway station. The hostel is kept clean and tidy. Will come back again if in Moscow.

Amazing hostel for an amazing ....
From 30th October - 2nd November 2014
The rooms are clean, comfortable and warm, the hosts are friendly and welcoming (the woman who was working that night greeted me at 4am with minimum fuss), the metro stop is maybe 5 minutes away and there are 24h supermarkets and restaurants incredibly close by. I spoke Russian for the majority of the time I was there but the people that work there are more than happy to speak English to you. Be prepared though! It may take a bit of charades (as you'd expect in any country) if there is a language barrier!
The hostel comes equipped with a mini kitchen and clean bathrooms. Also, whilst I was there there didn't seem to be a time you had to leave in the morning, which was great when you collapsed from walking around Moscow all day.
At the front desk of the hostel, there are maps (in English) that help you with the Metro system. This was incredibly useful!
Oh, also, the wifi is really fast :D
