“Excellent short stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

I stayed here for 5 days and it was wonderful. The staff were very helpful, the location was great and the others guests were very friendly - I have made several friends from staying there. I arrived at 4am and yet the staff were waiting for me, and offered me a nightcap before bed. I would recommend it strongly to my friends, and already have a friend who booked on my recommendation.

Stayed October 2011, travelled solo

This hostel it is not great but you will find yout that is pretty hard to find a good hostel in Moscow. Hostels in Russia are not like hostels in Argentina, for example, evthing is quite basic and quite expensive too. So, taking this in consideration, I'll say this one is quite ok. Is very small, but thats usual there. However, rooms are ok, beds are big and very comfortable, there's wifi and 2 computers for free use. The hostel is inside a small flat in a good location, a 10 minutes walk to the Red Square. There's a kitchen and two toilets. Everything is quite clean but the best thing is the people who work on it, I met three of them and they were super helpful, spoke very good english and also helped me geeting the transiberain train tickets. You can also request to be picked up at the station though is quite expensive.... Anyway, I would go back to this hostel.

We was 5 guys together in Moscow for a little vacation, we found Comrade Hostel on the internet and decided to stay there because it was located very well and was cheap.

We didn't expected it to be something special, just a place to sleep!!.. However this Hostel is very cozy and fun to stay at, maybe not for all, but for five guys in the age of 24 it was quite the fun!! The service was in top and they were very helpfull (Thanks Sasha!) - One of the nights the recpetionist even drank with us :)

Because it's such a little hostel it can be very noizy sometimes, especially when we held parties in the kitchen (ended at midnight), and when people came home from the nightlife.

Bottom line is, when i come back to Moscow I sure will concider to stay here again - and i will very much recommend this place to others.

With thoughts - Rasmus Alexander

This hostel is cheap, location is excellent and it is relatively clean. We didn't sleep very well: too many people in a small room. I guess value for money is okay. Also no closets to store your luggage so everybody's bags are on the floor.

Big plus: free WiFi and internet computers for guests

Room Tip: ask for a bed next to the window you will have fresh air which is an asset

Comrade hostel has a great location, just 10 min walk from the Red Square. There is free wi-fi intent which is awesome! And free computers if you don't have your own device.. There is a kitchen and coffee and tea is free. The front desk people are very helpful and are there 24hours a day. Very clean and newish hostel.

The outside of the hostel can be deceiving as it looks very crappy from the outside and the inside stairwell but on entering the hostel it is very nice inside. There are only 2 showers/ toilets so it can be hard to get access to the toilet at peak times. But this is not so bad just something to keep in mind.
