Non-responsive hostel
Because I couldn't place international calls, I whatsapp and email the hostel enquiry on the airport shuttle bus as it mentioned as a service. They've read my whatsapp but I've received no reply which is the first time in all my trips i'm not able to hear from the host. Got there and asked them about the shuttle, they said they don't have the service anymore but can order a taxi for me if needed, which could have told me rather than leave me unanswered. Room is big, but wall is very thin, was pretty noisy at night with people speaking in the hallway. The shower is at the bottom floor, separated from all the rooms, so you have to walk past reception and front door to go downstair and it could get quite uncomfortable when you're walking back in your pj and wet hair. Location is prob the only good thing i could mention

Cheap + central, no privacy in the showers...
Listen, I have stayed in hostels from New Zealand to LA and I'd rate this a solid 5/10. The beds are great (excet the matresses which gave me the worst backpain of my life), they each have a plug, a light and a curtain and furthermore, the location of this hostel is GREAT. Walk 5 minutes and you can see the Red Square across the river and if you go in the other direction there's lots of pubs and restaurants and a metro station. The staff are superb. HOWEVER there was a lot of noise from the street (literally someone shouting outside EVERY night) and also from the corridor. Showers are almost prison style with only curtains separating you from others, and as you have to leave your towels/clothes outside you all get to see a lot of your fellow guests when trying to get clean. The showers are also one big shower head so in order to shampoo your hair you have to turn the shower off... So that wasn't great. It's really cheap to stay here though, so if you're not shy and don't mind some minor back issues this might just be the hostel for you!
