86 hours, 8 pot noodles, 20 beers and several million trees after boarding the train in Irkutsk we finally arrived in Moscow. Very grateful to be greeted by a man holding a 'Monkey Shrine'sign (our train ticket travel agent) with our names on, as at 4.30am neither of us was in the mood to haggle with Russian taxi drivers.

Room not too bad, but on our first two days there were people sleeping in every corridor, on the sofas etc which gave the place the feeling that you were in some sort of squat! The sink was overflowing with dirty dishes and with graffiti covering the wall in our room it all felt a bit too like student digs, which isnt really what I'd want for a £40 a night hostel room!
