I am currently looking for a hostel in Moscow. I have been reading various reviews of various hostels across several websites.
One thing that keeps cropping up is travelers saying that some hostels have people living in them? i.e. people live in the dorm rooms where beds are rented out. Is this true for a lot of hostels in Moscow?
Secondly, I am going to Moscow to meet a friend, but they have their own accommodation. This means that I will be staying in a hostel by myself. Is this a safe option for a single white Western woman?
Thank you kindly for any responses.
