Daniel Mishin started and owns Bear Hostels, a chain of high quality, low price hostels that first opened its doors in 2009 to give young Americans a place to crash when visiting places like the New Arbat, one of the most happening neighborhoods in Moscow. He put together a website that caters to Americans by featuring visa advice and providing all information in English. Bear Hostels is like a cross between a hotel and a college dorm. It’s largest branch has rooms that can hold up to 16 beds, and the lobby has a communal plasma TV as well as snacks. Bear Hostels has more than 250 bunk beds all over the city center of the Russian capital, being the best StartUp of Russia 2011 and having more than 200 foreign and international newspapers and magazines publications.
