The Best Hostels in Moscow, Russia

Author: waytorussia (on 08 Mar 2020)
Most of the hostels in Moscow are run by foreigners and are centrally located.
Some really old Soviet-style hostels are also located at the outskirts of the city – they can't compete, but can be a good option if everything else is booked or if you want a truly "Russian" experience. Below we list the hostels that we can personally recommend, either for their location, price, or service.

To give you the first impression about the hostels: if you are looking for a bed more than a proper room, check the dorms at Godzillas and Fabrika. Prices for a bed are as cheap as it gets in Moscow– only €12 per night.

The best location certainly goes to Comrade Hostel. Vivid at night Kitai Gorod area still has some of old Moscow flair – with little streets and green alleys. Not to say that the best bars and clubs are within walking distance.

Another gem are Bear Hostels. It is actually a chain, but we recommend two of them:  Bear Hostel Arbatskaya and Bear Hostel on Mayakovskaya. Both locations are perfect for those who want to feel the pulsating energy of the city.

Fabrika Hostel is perfect for meeting other travelers because it has a nice common area and a café. Besides this area is known for its galleries and art events.

If you are looking for a little bit more privacy, single and double rooms at very good prices are offered by Bear Hostel, Comrade and Godzillas.
