Hostelz.com's Review
Titmouse Hostel is a decent place to stay for budget conscious travelers and is ideally located for exploring the city of Krasnoyarsk. It’s modestly sized and has a friendly and personal atmosphere.

The Location

The hostel is situated in the centre of Krasnoyarsk and is well placed for visiting the cities sites and its many cafes and restaurants. It’s also a great place to get off the Trans-Siberian Railway to stretch your legs and explore. The hostel itself is easy to find but it would certainly benefit from an exterior sign and or an intercom. Lots of parking is available but we would advise locking motorcycles to the railings.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorms vary in size from six- to eight-bed dorms and at least one twin room. The hostel has two separate toilets, with sinks, and two separate showers but they’re all a tight squeeze. During our twenty-four-hour stay, no hot water was available, not an unusual occurrence in Siberia. The house is exceptionally clean and tidy, the beds are quite comfy, and whilst the dorms are quite spacious, there are no lockers or wardrobes.

Common Spaces

Titmouse Hostel is modern and pleasantly decorated throughout. The common areas include the lounge with soft loungers; tables; and chairs as well as a small kitchen with a two-burner hob, a large fridge, and a small washing machine -- all are available for guest use. Moreover, the laundry facilities are free -- not many hostels can boast about offering such an important amenity. However, there is a lack of space to hang clothes to dry, so you may have to resort to hanging items over the balcony or off the end of the bunks. Tea and coffee are free, as are the towels and linen. The hostel does not have a computer for guest use but does have fast and reliable Wi-Fi.

Summary

You’ll be made to feel welcome from the moment you arrive, but be prepared for a climb, as the hostel is on the top floor, up three flights of stairs with no elevator. It has some decent facilities and is well priced, with staff that will help you in any way they can.
