The hostel is quite nice and in a very convenient location. It is located in one of those old Soviet apartment buildings so the entrance and stairs will make you think it’s going to be a problem but it isn’t. They’ve done well with the space they have. We had a double room. It was large enough but on the... More

Nice clean hostel, nice friendly staff. A short walk to red square and always felt safe. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Moscow on a budget, it is also very close to the tube which is very handy in the colder months.

We truly enjoyed our stay at 3 Penguins which is a small, little hostel in the centre of Moscow. The hostel is equipped with everything we needed: a nice little sleeping rooms, a cosy little kitchen with the good equipment (e.g. very good knifes and a Russian-turkish style coffee maker), small nice shower rooms and toilets and a living area....

Staying in Zamoskvorechye

Neighbourhood Profile
It wouldn’t be a mistake to call Pyatnitskaya street the main axis of this neighborhood – turn one direction and you’ll find the Tretyakov Gallery in Lavrushinsky Lane, turn another – a hip Scandinavian restaurant. Old churches now embrace contemporary life with style and grace. Going to Zamoskvorechye is like visiting during the times when it was a medieval Russian quarter, but with a modern twist of 20th century buildings pushing themselves into the 21st century with new businesses opening weekly. Stroll down Pyatnitskaya to taste dozens of global cuisines – from Ukrainian and Georgian to Thai and American.
