This is a lovely, if basic hostel, and special mention must go to the three girls who run the place. They are helpful, efficient and really help to give the place a fun atmosphere. It is in a good location and you can get your washing done, make use of good kitchen facilities, and generally relax and have a good...

This was one of my first time staying in a hostel, and I really enjoyed it! The girls who are in charge of the hostel are very friendly, welcoming, funny, helpful and genuinely nice people! They always went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and happy. Upon arriving in St Petersburg, one of my bags didn't...

It is a hostel that it´s very dirty, the toilets are not well maintained and if you go during the high season are always busy and you have to wait a lot. The girls of the hostel are too intrusive and sometimes overwhelming and rooms are too small and not clean. The only good thing of this place is that...

Why we booked this place?Just because the reviews are awesome!! And believe it or not, this is NOT the fantastic place they want you to think it is. Our room was tiny, the beds were noisy and the fridge that was ust outside our room was terribly stinky!!! We complained about it, but nobody cleaned it, it was disgusting!! We...

This hostel location is good because it's near to The Savior on Blood Cathedral, The Isaac Cathedral on Nevsky Prospect & The State of Hermitage just by walk. You don't need metro to travel around as for English speaking tourist found it hard to ride metro as we can't read Russian language on Metro station. This hostel has 2 shared...

I stayed here for a month during the summer, and can confirm that not only has my own experience been wonderful, but i've seen every single other guest being treated in the same way.

I stayed in the hostel for almost 3 months during low season (study abroad). Friendly staff, warm , kind of like being in someone's house. It was quiet and mostly inhabited by Russian speakers, not much of a "party" atmosphere. There was always someone to chat to in the living room though. Thanks guys, Sebastian

I've stayed in many hostels in 6 out of 7 continents and I'm struggling to recall another hostel in which ALL the staff are SO genuinely friendly, knowledgable and welcoming. As they came on shift they made it their mission to introduce themselves and get to know you. As soon as I arrived I was given a map and shown...

I stayed at this hostel with another 2 friends in the end of 2013. The hostel is well located (considering that everything in St Peterburg is ''far away''). The accommodations were nice, we got to sleep together in a room for ourselves (they added new guests to other rooms). The bathroom is ok, you have one or two showers (not...

“The 12-person room is good but at night people might accidentally wake you, since the chance that one of the 12 will need to walk around is high. Some smaller rooms are windowless so check before you rent if windows are important.”
