I am very surprised to see such positive reviews here about Napoleon. I stayed at Napoleon hostel during my trip last summer. While the location was convenient in Kitai Gorod, it's really nothing more than a fourth floor apartment. The two showers were not nearly enough for the number of people they packed in. And the hostel is in pretty much desperate need of renovation. Guests were boozing and jumping around all night, not giving anyone a chance to sleep. I ending up moving to another hostel for the duration of my stay. There seems to be a nice selection of better hostels. AVOID!
This was one of the best hostel experiences I've ever had (and I've stayed at a lot of hostels around Europe). The owner and staff were incredibly helpful, even helping me sort out train tickets. The atmosphere here is friendly and fun.
Best hostel ever!
I can't say enough good things about this place. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful, and the accommodations are clean and nicer than most hostels, plus the location is perfect. This is definitely the best place to stay in Moscow if you're on a budget. Napoleon made my trip so much better!
awesome time in Napoleon. Met some cool Italians and we had a riot in Moscow's crazy clubs - even if we were nearly bankrupt afterwards
This was the only place/person/organisation to rip us off the entire time we were in Russia. The staff were unhelpful and unfriendly and clearly had the attitude that backpackers were for money and nothing more. Don't come here expecting anything more than a barely adequate room at a very high price.
sweet moscow hostel was decent. met some nice kids. had a blast in Moskva... man this city is crazzzzeeee. Check out Propaganda if your in town
Napoleon Hostel is the best hostel in the world! These guys saved me in September, when my Russian visa was running out. They did everything they could to help me out, going way above the call of duty to schedule appointments for me and so on. Without them I would have succumbed to pure panic for sure! Thanks Napoleon Hostel for helping me get on the train and out of Russia!
Godzillas rocks man. had a great time. cool hostel and cool people. Moscow is awesome man - shame Putin is such a scumbag! (not that i can talk about nation leaders...)
