Kazanskoye Podvorye Hostel




The Hostelz.com Review

Kazanskoye Podvorye Hostel may not be the easiest hostel name to pronounce for non-Russian speakers, but don't let it stop you from booking in for your time in Kazan, Russia. It is a great hostel, with a good English-speaking staff.

The Location

Located in the middle of Bauman Street -- Kazan's main pedestrian street -- Kazanskoye Podvorye is possibly the best-located hostel in Kazan. With plenty of cafes around and most worth-seeing places in walking distance, the location of this hostel is very convenient. The railway station is about twenty minutes' walking or a cheap bus ride away. The hostel's property also contains a cheap, buffet-style restaurant with Tatar and international dishes and a cafe, which belong to the same owner, but are also very popular with outside guests.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Kazanskoye Podvorye Hostel is a luxurious hostel. Dorms are gender specific and come either with four or six beds. Each bed has a curtain, a light, and two plugs to charge your devices. The hostel also offers several nice-looking private rooms for a low fee. Most private rooms come with a private bathroom, while the dorms have a shared bathroom on the corridor. The most luxurious room even consists of two floors and has its own jacuzzi.

Common Spaces

The hostel has plenty of common spaces to hang out. Apart from the cafe, there is the lobby area, a fully equipped kitchen, a game room, and a library. The hostel has a relaxed atmosphere. The amount of English-speaking guests in hostels in Russia outside St. Petersburg and Moscow are normally low. However, Kazanskoye Podvorye hires volunteers through Workaway, so you can always find English speaking people around. Volunteers also organise activities such as game night, English-speaking club, cooking master class, Spanish lessons, and more. Activities are open for both hostel guests and locals. You will also find a few cats around the hostel.


Kazanskoye is an excellent hostel in Kazan, Russia. It has a social atmosphere, is very clean and comfortable, organises an activity on a nearly daily basis, and has very convenient facilities and a nice staff with international volunteers. Kazanskoye Podvorye Hostel is a great -- if not the best -- choice for your stay in Kazan.
