Dostoyevskaya opened on 19 June 2010 as a part of the northern line extension along with Maryina Roshcha station.
The station has two exits. One is near the building of the former Red Army Theater. Another exit leads to Suvorovskaya Square.
The construction of the station started in the 1990s though soon the station was conserved due to insufficient funding. The construction process resumed only in 2007 when money flow resumed and right and left rail tunnels were built. The construction of the platform began then. In April 2009 the lack of funds forced the Moscow Metro authorities to delay the station's opening to May 2010. Several days before the supposed opening date it was delayed again to June 2010 due to escalators adjustment.
The station was supposed to have a transfer to Koltsevaya Line station Suvorovskaya Ploshchad though the latter is not being built. According to the authorities the station and transfer to Dostoyevskaya will be built only after the completion of the northern part of the line.
Published photos of station's decor elements caused disputes in Russian Internet community. There are two scenes of violence (homicide and suicide) depicted on the station walls as an illustration of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment, along with many other scenes (including illustrations of The Idiot).
