You'll recognise this hostel because youll have to walk through an ally off Old Arbat Street, opp Hard Rock Cafe, past industrial bins and a car park. Its a flat converted in a hostel so as you can imagine its pretty crammped. Alot of people sit in the small kitchen/ entrance and expect to wait an indeterminate amount of time before anyone can check you in.
The owner charged us approx 12 pounds a head to register our visas, also be aware when paying in dollers or other foreign currencies as he appears to use a made up exchange rate.
The beds are fine. Doors dont lock. Didnt appear to be security other than the guests who hang out there. To get into the hostel a simple hello is the password to get the door opened. Be prepared to wait to be let in as youll often have to rely on fellow guests to let you in.
Unique Quality: Was nice to have a kitchen to prepare own food.
Location is good, central, just off old arabat street.
Directions: Down Ally, opposite Hard Rock Cafe on Old Arbat Street.
