On my first trip to Moscow in summer 2005, I stayed in a homestay which I booked through one of the people who offer homestay or B&B on "Uncle Pasha's Cheap Moscow" webpage.

I actually didn't stay with the person I booked through, but in the same building with a mother and her 15 year old son. I stayed in the room of the son, who slept in the bedroom of his mother while I was there.

It was very interesting to have an insight into Russian daily life, although communication was hardly possible as I didn't speak any Russian at that time. The price was 30 Euro per night and included a basic breakfast.

Directions:
The building I stayed in was located on an island in the river Moskva near the bridge Kamenny Most. It was only 10 minutes on foot from the Kremlin. The nearest metro stops were Polayanka or Borovitskaya (grey line).
