There was fetid odor in the building. Ventilation was not enough and good. Also carpet in the room was smelly and dusty.

No security at all, you don’t get any key to enter to your room which means also that anybody can enter in your room. When we arrived the staff was not aware of our reservation and did not gave us the expected room. The guy was not very willing to help and only after complains we were offered an uncomfortable and stinky room (we reserved a 4 beds dormitory and we got an 8 beds dormitory). The room was very dirty and very stinky. In summary very rude and unorganized staff, no security, not clean


The hostel was overbooked on our arrival, so we had to stay in a dorm for the first night, after that we got our booked room. Rooms are nice.

The staff at this hostel run a little scam for non-Russian speakers. They tell you that the deposit you paid on HostelWorld.com will be refunded to you when you check out (and then they ask you to pay the full amount directly to them.) The owner doesn't speak any English, so we had to ring HostelWorld and have their Russian-speaking staff member speak to him directly. They obviously knew how the hostel booking system works - they just wanted to try their luck. The rest of the hostel is ok.


This Hostel is a really good one in St. Petersburg, but in most of the time you can't find someone who speaks English to ask for information. The place is very clean and have nice facilities. The price is quite okay, but they don't discount the deposit fee, so you pay 15% more when using the booking service of HostelWorld.
