Moscow Home Hostel
Ranked #90 of 1,589 Speciality Lodging in Moscow
Reviewed 9 April 2011

Given the size, cost and general tourist-unfriendliness of Moscow this hostel is not too bad for what it is, though note that it is not what most people might consider walking distance to Red Square - it would take at least half an hour (and crossing the road is an adventure in itself), so you are probably better off walking the 10 min or so to the metro to get to Red Square.

Take a map to help you find the hostel on arrival. The Arbat area is fairly close, which is handy for eating and drinking.

The hostel toilets are very very cramped, and might require some gymnastics to use....

Room Tip: Book a private room.

We've stayed in a lot of hostels,this is one of the worst,unfortunately.At first- it was soo noisy,the walls were too thin,we heard all our neighbours,at second-the bathroom was awful and not quite clean.Location is not bad,but it's certainly not 5 min to metro!The only positive thing is staff,they are really helpful.

5 minutes walk from a metro station. Walking distance from Kremlin and Red Square. Very close to supermarkets. Shared bathroom and kitchen was nice enough for a budget traveler. I was staying in a supposedly girls dorm but woke up to find a guy was sleeping next to my bed. A couple was sleeping in the same room. but I just didn't care because it was so hard to find a budget accommodation like this in Moscow. You can't camplain, its a budget hostel.

I wish i wasn't forced to give this place 1 star. I wish i could give it minus a million.

To get the visa for Russia you need an invitation from a hotel/hostel in Russia. This place provides that service for 1000rubles, i was travelling with 2 kids so emailed ahead and asked could all the visa invitations go on one and me be only charged 1000rubles. Yes of course was the reply. The email even said total = 1000rubles.

So i was shocked to find when i turned up to be asked for 3000rubles for the visa support, i refused and was told that unless i paid there was no room, i said id already paid for it and she was having none of it, progressively her English got worse. When she decided she was going to phone to the police i paid up. Despite showing her the email she was having none of it.

I paid and we stayed in terrible accommodation. The laundry service was broken, the beds just pathetic Ikea things with skanky covers and the toilets and showers falling tp pieces.

I ended up leaving early since we just could not stomach the place any longer.

We had been ripped off, and i hardly slept a wink.
