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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

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 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.”
