Reviewed 15 April 2013

Hostel is very bad, dirty bathrooms, small untidy kitchen, seems to involve a nasty Russian men who loiter on and make you feel very uncomfortable. I did not stay long!
not very good if you don't speak Russian

Do not stay here, the place is run by a little bully with a beard, the staff hate him and the guests hate him; he posts his own reviews celebrating his own hostel, which in truth is cramped with disgusting bathrooms a communal kitchen which the Russian guests view as a free supermarket.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

Cramped rooms, food constantly being stolen from the fridges, see-through slats on the bathroom stalls, broken elevator, permanently clogged sinks, no where comfortable to sit, grubby beanbags on the floor, bunk beds crammed end to end, a huge screen tv playing video games at full volume outside the dorms, no wall between the common area's blasting loud tv and the dorms, reception area no where near the rest of the hostel, nothing to stop anyone from walking in off the street. Good location on the aAbat though if you like that sort of thing. I left to find a better place.

All things considered, I was very glad I stayed at the Chillax Hostel. The location was great (we could walk to the Kremlin), and the staff were very friendly, although they did not discourage us from going to possibly the worst club in Moscow, Gogol. I also thought the beds were quite comfortable, and were even long enough for my 188cm body.

However, one evening after a hard day's sightseeing, I went to the toilet to do my business, and found that I was physically unable to sit down because there was so little space. Luckily for me, the second toilet along was just about large enough for me to sit down. I was not surprised to see a turd on the seat on another occasion, presumably because someone was forced too far back. One day, the toilets were even out of order because of 'sewage trouble'. I would say the hostel is slightly cramped, in the bedroom as well as the bathroom. A word of warning to anyone who is yet to experience a 14 bed dormitory - be prepared to be occasionally awoken by a cacophony of snoring.

Despite my complaints, I did actually enjoy my time at the hostel, mainly because of the helpfulness of the staff. I also hasten to add that it was kept nice and clean, they had a good lights out policy, and a couple of computers. Don't let the name put you off.

Very happy with our stay at Chillax. Good sociable shared lounge and kitchen. Room price varies depending on how many people you want to share with. Would have benefited from more female toilets as only one available in the girl's bathroom.

I knew i was going to a hostel, but still i had some expectations.
Chillax is very, very basic. The rooms are very small and cramped with people. The kitchen is also small and not very clean. The bathroom is incredibly tiny, there's only one toilet!!! And that toiled is in the middle of the bathroom surounded by plastic walls. So, as you can imagine, it's a really basic hostel. Plus it's very noisy at night, given that guest play playstation all night in the living room and you can hear them from the rooms.
On the positive side, the location is really good. A quiet, central and safe neighbourhood. The staff is also very friendly.
