They were nice though and complemented me with a bed in an awesome 6 bed room, on which i booked an 8-bed room. The room itself was spacious and...

This hostel contains two dorms, a private bedroom, a very but really very tiny kitchen, one bathroom in which I didn't bother to count all the toothbrushes and soaps, a communal...

All its walls and corners are penetrated by frendly atmosphere. Special thanks to Sergey who is an administrator for his great welcome.

Great location and chill atmosphere. The hostel is about a 5 min walk from two metro stations and the main train station, and there's a pub next door. The owner Sergei was helpful and friendly. I'd stay here again.

Very friendly staff, informal place, small and personal as it is a converted flat into a small hostel. The only problem to mention is that there is just one room with toilet and bath/shower, i.e. a need to wait when hostel is full, or girls take their time :)). There is one private room for two, but it is not...

Very close to the central station and the Universitet underground station. Only three rooms so a very cosy and familiar feeling. The owner Sergeyhas done a great job and is eager to help with any queries (tourist info, calling a cab). Definitely recommended.
