The Hostelz.com Review

Express Hotel&Hostel is a hostel with very good facilities located just opposite the train station in Kazan. Express Hotel&Hostel offers definitely more than the price suggests as the hostel is modern and very clean, the facilities are great, and the service is great -- which is not very common for Russia.

The Location

The location is not the best, as Express Hotel&Hostel is a bit far from the city center. However, it is close to train station and not very far from the Kazan Kremlin. If you want to see more of the city, you will need to take the metro. The nearest station is just only a few minutes on foot from Express Hotel&Hostel. If you come by train, you can reach the hostel in two minutes but if you arrive by train or plane, you will need to take a bus.

Rooms and Bathrooms

At Express Hotel&Hostel, you can choose between dorms and hotel rooms; you receive blankets, linens, and a towel. There are eight-, ten-, and twelve-bed rooms (bunk beds). The rooms are huge; you have a lamp and two plugs for each bed. Express Hotel&Hostel looks more like a hotel than a hostel. You also have a very big locker next to your bed and you have no deposit for it.

There are a lot of bathrooms for both sexes -- maybe more than twenty overall. They are hygienic, large, and comfortable. There are also more than twenty toilets, also separated for both sexes. You will never have to wait for a shower at Express Hotel&Hostel.

Common Spaces

The kitchen has only free tea and coffee and a microwave, but there are no cooking plates, a stove, and a refrigerator. On the other hand, there is a small breakfast included in the price. The common space is also small and is not big enough for such a large hostel. There is Wi-Fi. The check-out time is noon. There is no deposit and you can pay by credit card. The relaxed atmosphere at Express Hotel&Hostel reminds more of a hotel. This also fits the atmosphere in Kazan, as the city is rather reserved and conservative.

Summary

Express Hotel&Hostel offers a huge extra value for its price and it is a great option to stay in Kazan. Especially if you arrive by train and you do not want to carry your luggage, this is one of the best places where you can stay.
