I wouldn't stay here if I were you”
Location, Location, Location
This is sadly one of the worst places we have ever stayed at. I say sadly because the location is excellent and I get the impression from past reviews and the decorations on the walls within the hostel that this place was once something great. Sadly those days are long gone. The hostel's former exterior sign is lying in an alcove half way up the long, smokey, dirty stairs that lead to the hostel itself. Once you get inside the hostel you will notice that the place has a feel more akin to a crack den than a hostel. There didn't seem to be any tourists other than us staying at the hostel and yet the place was full...full of Russian people who seemed to begrudge our non-Russian existence and made it abundantly clear with their long, unfriendly glances in our direction. The staff at the hostel, however - credit where credit is due - were not too bad. They seemed to be used to (and possibly even encourage) the odd 'mate's-flat-like' atmosphere of the place and that is a level of unprofessionalism that I would discourage. This aside, however, they were quite useful in washing our clothes (for a reasonable fee) and filling us in on Russia's visa laws. The female receptionist with brown hair and glasses insisted on a fee for some kind of Visa registration form. The fee was hefty, however, and we declined to pay and had no trouble as a result of this - I would resultantly encourage you to do the same. In order to do that, however you would have to choose to stay here in the first place and in all honesty I really, really wouldn't recommend that. The location is good but there is nothing else positive to be said about the place. Just pay a little more and stay somewhere nicer, you won't regret it because Moscow itself is a wonderful city and the people elsewhere in the city were generally very nice and so friendly!

I stayed 9 days at this hotel and I can say that the only thing that is good is the location and the price. The hostel is not good.

Good location but very hostel-y! ”
location
If you have a lot of bags I wouldn't suggest coming here as it is a trip up about 4 flights of stairs to the very top. The hostel is relatively clean but always busy (everyone of the 10 beds were taken.) The communal area is small and full of the young russian friends of the staff. They hang out all day so you do not have any opportunity to use the facilities. The staff are polite and speak english. The bathroom is clean for a hostel.

Nice hostel, although a bit old”
Great staff and good location
Napoleon hostel is a slightly older looking hostel in a good location. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hostel had free internet (wifi and 2 computers for guest use), but it was a bit slow at times. The downside to this hostel is the number of toilets and showers - there were 2 of each. This wasn't a problem for me, but I did notice people waiting for the showers at some times of day and it could be a problem when it's really busy.

Super Hostel in bester Lage”
Mitarbeiter, Lage, Atmosphäre
Das Hostel kann ich zu 100% weiterempfehlen - vom ersten bis zum letzten Tag war dort alles perfekt: Publikum, Lage, Mitarbeiter, Flughafentransfer, etc. - für den Preis wird man in Mosaku wohl nichts besseres finden! 100%ige Weiterempfehlung

Beste Lage für wenig Geld”
Mitarbeiter, Lage, Atmosphäre
Wir waren 5 Nächte im Napoleon Hostel und sind rundum zufrieden! Die Mitarbeiter sind hilfsbereit und freundlich, der Flughafentransfer lief reibungslos, die Lage war perfekt: 5 Minuten bis zum Roten Platz, Metro Station zwei Minuten entfernt, viele Bars, etc. in der Nähe! Hatten Glück mit dem Publikum bzw den anderen Backpackern im Hotel und haben nette Leute aus der ganzen Welt dort angetroffen und kennengelernt! Alles in Allem kann man das Hostel nur weiterempfehlen!

立地がよくリーズナブルなホステルです。ロシア語が読めない人は最寄駅近くの地図を印刷してから行くとよいでしょう。シャワーもトイレも2つずつありストレスはありませんでした。
