Godzillas is Moscow's largest and best-known hostel. It was the first independent hostel to open in Moscow and has been featured in The New York Times, Newsweek and The Daily Telegraph.

The hostel is situated in a historical three-story pre-revolutionary building in the centre of Moscow and is a short walk from all the major tourist attractions (Kremlin, Pushkin Square etc..). The nearest Metro stations are Tsvetnoi Bulvar (3 minutes) and Tverskaya / Pushkinskaya (5 minutes).

We have the widest selection of private rooms (twins and singles) and dorm rooms (four-bedroom - ten-bed) in Moscow.

Godzillas is Western owned and managed. All staff are multi-lingual and have extensive knowledge of Moscow and Russia.

We can help you with everything - invitations, registration (600 rub per person), taxi pick-up, train tickets, tours and even beds! Please explore our web site or drop us a line.

Good location 15-20 minutes walk to the Red square, metro station nearby, reasonably cheap (for Russian standards). Staff not very friendly, rooms are very basic (but they were restoring the entire building), plus the place can be really noisy.
