This hostel has single rooms and a good location, making it a great place to stay in Moscow. The biggest issue I had was with finding the hostel, as there are no signs to figure it out and often times no one at reception to let you in. Thus so, I would say get in contact with them prior to...

Nice Hostel right in the Centre. Close to Arbat street, but located on silent street Povarskaya. Good staff, comfortable beds even in 16 pers. dorm. Amazing architecture. They are going to renovate bathroom - it'll make this place even better.

We spent three days in this hostel. There is not much interaction between guests but it is in a great location, ten minutes by walk from the red square. The hostel has internet and a kitchen so you can cook your own food. Breakfast is not provided

Oh, so Indie cannot strictly be called a backpackers hostel as there are a couple of residents living there permanently, but that does not interfere much with the backpackers’ life at the hostel. As we stayed in a private room, it is not possible for us to describe life in the dorms. The room was sparkling white, extremely clean linen...

We got the private room with bathroom. The bathroom is nice and spacious but the bedroom is tiny with no window. On our first night the hostel double booked our room so we had to use the shared bathroom. They tried to make us feel better by offering us a 'discount' which was actually just the price of the new...

So close to the Kremlin 10min walk and the rest is just great from the people to the management. A great experience to spend a few nights in it and go out for a few drinks with all the house. If you're playing poker i would give it a hand of full house )) Enjoy!

It's really amazing place! First of all it's in very center of Moscow but prices are not so high. I stayed in a lot of hostels and I can surely say that it's the best hostel ever. Guys who work there are very friendly, help with everything. And you can always meet interesting people over there. Thank you for everything!

Staying in Arbat

Neighbourhood Profile
Arbat
Crowds of tourists, both local and international take in Old Arbat and its modern and gigantic peer – New Arbat. One reason visitors keep coming is no doubt Konstantin Melnikov’s famous private house, now open to the public and worthy of a visit. After exploring one of the oldest parts of Moscow, avoid the crowds and turn to the side streets and boulevards where calmness and affordable food is plentiful.

“The dorms are really safe and quite. As a solo traveler, I was nervous to stay in a dorm but the dorms are worth the price point whereas the private rooms are too small and not anything special for the set price. I have been to many hotels, hostels, and B&B's to know that the private rooms are WAY overpriced.”
