A nice hostel with quality facilities, perhaps the best feature of the Trans-Siberian is that the dorm rooms are more spacious than you will find elsewhere. They haven’t crammed beds into the rooms like in other hostels. A bed in an 8-bed mixed dorm costs 20 euros while the 4-bed femal dorm costs 22 euros. The private double is good value at 50 euros. There’s a 500R ($20) refundable key deposit on top of the prices. The Trans-Siberian Hostel prides itself on its travel desk, with plenty of information on other places for backpackers to stay while traveling in Russia. The names of other Trans-Siberian destinations decorate the entrance area to the hostel. Wireless internet is available for free via the hostel’s laptops, which can be used for 15R ($0.60) per 10 minutes. There’s also free breakfast, registration, a mid-sized common room/kitchen with satellite TV, lockers for each guest and laundry facilities. The Trans-Siberian Hostel is located between three central metro stations (Kurskaya, Chistiye Prudy and Kitai-Gorod) but it’s a fair walk to any of them. On the downside, there are only two combined toilets/showers; and the interior, especially the common room and kitchen, is a little gloomy. Still a decent hostel and well worth considering.
