I’ve been to Moscow several times before, so am highly critical with this review comparing here to other properties.
I would NOT stay at this Hostel again, there were too many negatives.

We arrived on an overnight train from Saint Petersburg and arrived early before the room was ready. This wasn’t a problem, so we made ourselves comfortable in the common room in front of the TV. We were soon relocated because management were offended by us sitting there. We relocated without drama.
We were then told our room would be ready in an hour, we were delighted. The receptionist imposed a half day rate for us to move into our room early, severely reprimanding us that they have a strict check in time of 2pm!!!!!
We paid. We moved in. We were then asked for 500 roubles for a key card for entry. We asked for 2 if possible, but this was denied.
Really tired and wanting to crash, we then had to sign a 16, “rules and regulations of the hostel” form. (One signature beside every paragraph with the fine clearly defined) We obliged. We asked if we could have a few hours to change money to pay our account.
(We were there for 5 days but this was frowned upon heavily!!)
We then enquired about towels, “No they are for rent only, none supplied”
THIS IS THE ONLY HOSTEL IN 2 MONTHS OF TRAVELLING Europe and Russia THAT DIDN’T SUPPLY TOWELS.
The few times we had any contact with reception throughout our stay with a specific problem or question, we were treated extremely poorly. The receptionists were blunt, unhelpful, unfriendly and not once did we see a smiling face throughout our stay.
Not one day that we left the hostel or returned did any of the receptionists acknowledge our presence. (And with the entrance/exit door right in front of them we found this unamusing.)
On departure, our 500 roubles was not refunded until an inspection was done of the room for damage!!!!!!!! WE ARE 2 x 65-YEAR-OLD WOMEN!!!!!!!!! FOR GOODNESS SAKE
The Hostel is small, but very well laid out. The kitchenette, just an electric jug and microwave, is in the centre with dorms down one side and privates down the other. We believe there are family rooms upstairs but we didn’t venture up there.
We had a private room which was small but very comfortable with air- conditioning. With the exception of the entire room shaking every time a train passed under the building, and the courtyard, our room looked onto, being noisy at night with lots of intoxicated hipsters, our room was comfortable and we got a brilliant sleep on the very firm bed.
The position from Arbatskaya railway station to the Hostel is great (just a 10 minute walk across the road- down the stairs and under the intersection to the start of the Arbat) The Hostel is at the Kremlin end of the Arbat next door to Mesopotamia Restaurant on the first floor.
The bathroom was extremely clean during our stay and cleaned regularly. Shower soap and shampoo were supplied
In summary:
I have never stayed in such a cold Hostel in terms of attitude of staff towards guests.
The sanctions imposed here were truly ridiculous.
I heard a guy departing one morning begging forgiveness for breaking one of the rules to which the receptionist was barking how she would lose her job.
This REALLY makes you want to return!!!
Having come from the Best Hostel in the World in St Petersburg to here, it was quite a shock for both of us.
There is a myriad of good Hostels in Moscow. Sadly, this one won’t be seeing us again.
We were very surprised there wasn’t a baggage holding fee when we departed.

- Helpful (English-speaking) staff.
- Clean and well organised hostel.
- Modern electronic key access system (to hostel and room).
- Good WiFi connection in the room.
- Kitchen area available for guests to use (though I never used it myself)
- Located in one of the nicer streets of Moscow.
- Close to Metro station.
- Walkable distance to Kremlin (aprox. 20min.).
- Good value for money.

Moreover, a coffee shop just across the road (ideal for breakfast!) and a money exchange office with good rates is located just below the hostel!

The hostel is clean, located nearby metro stations (yes, stations) and also foods. The check-in and check-out process is quick, except for registration (which is mandated by law) but of course it's not a problem.

The room is comfy, the space is big enough for the designated amount of person in the room. It's just me being unlucky that I got coupled with this girl who didn't even respond to a greeting (from everyone), but managed to laugh wildly when calling her mom and telling her that she's at work (while lazily sleep). Oh and the bathroom is the best I've ever met during my trip. Their idea to play music in the bathroom is also brilliant.

The only negative points (and the one that I know they won't be able to do anything) is that the hotel is located just below metro tracks, so everytime a train passed it sounds like a rumble. Nonetheless it is still just a little bit of inconvenience.

Located in the very superb location the "Arbat" Street which you can find many cafes and entertainment (People are playing music etc..) If you cannot find the hostel (like myself) try to search for Pandora store on the right side of the street, hostel is just next to it. Staffs speak good English and helpful. The room was good, they have a curtain for each bed so you can have little privacy, personal light every bed too. The room was little small but clean. They have storage for each at bottom of the bed (require lock). Shower rooms and toilets are clean and in good function (and I like that they have loudspeaker playing music every room). They also have a kitchen which you can prepare easy meal and vending machine (snacks, water, coffee etc..) and many tables in the kitchen. As mentioned below, most of people staying here are locals so you do not get to meet travelers here. Storage for luggage is 50R for every 2 hours.

Nice location in the Arbat street in which you will find a lot of restaurants nearby. Two metro station to the Red Square (one line transfer).
We booked a double room. The room was very small but the hostel has a very nice common room in which you can cook, have a drink...
The hostel was very clean, both the rooms and the common areas.
You can leave your baggage the last day in the hostel for a little charge. I think that it is something they can avoid as you are paying enough for the room.
The staff was helpful.

Good free wifi.

To sum up, nice hostel to stay in. Considering the hotel prices in Moscow it is a recommendable option for a low budget.
