Kitchen is not clean. The staff was away talking with one specific client all the time or did her personal business for a while. Need to have more staff to support the standards of the hostel. Need some lounge area for the client's computer using instead of kitchen occupying since the other clients may need to use the kitchen. The intervene of some of the male client personal inquiry on female client is not enough.
Acme was good, great value for money and people were awesome. even though staff was very dissapointing: when we had to get a taxi to trainstation (metro didnt work at that time of night) one girl tried to trick us to pay 200RUB just for calling a taxi and 400RUB for driver. dont fall for that, theres lots of taxis just in front of the door and we paid only 350RUB...

Perfect hostel for 8€ per night. Most all the staff is friendly instead one guy that is not. Location is perfect!!!
Very....Quite....Hostel (pin drop type of stuff) if that is what you are looking for then this place is a great choice, perfectly loccated right in the heart of St Petersburg with great sized rooms, good shower and toilet facilities and staff that are always willing to help out. no alcohol policy is a little off putting but if they are going for the quite super chilled hostel vibe, then it hits the mark perfectly.
Excellently located, this hostel is just a few meters off Nevsky Prospekt, which means you are within walking distance of most attractions. The kitchen/lounge area is a great place to meet people as well as relax with a free cuppa tea/coffee. A big plus is that the place is cleaned every morning by a friendly lady. I would stay here again.
Good pricing, you should bring your own spoones though. the beds are very loud. besides that a wonderful hostel. You wil not regret going there

Hostel has a No Alchohol Policy. Up on the 5th floor with no elevators.
The hostel have to check the bathroom. Some facilities are broken.
Hostel has an excellent location, 50 meters from Nevsky. As for the people, receptionists were mostly helpful, and nice. The other travelers I met there were also really nice, and friendly, and the whole hostel has a kind of a home atmosphere. Average security. Security locker, is not very big, so you can leave there a smaller bag, or something like that, the big backpack can't fit in. wifi works good, and you can be used from the room. Not very clean bathroom, or dishes in the kitchen.
I thought this was a really decent hostel. I don't have any complaints. This is a really quiet hostel. You will meet some really cool travelers in this hostel. WiFi always works and including the room. The bed mattress was a little uncomfortable but its better than nothing! The staff are nice and helpful, spoke okay English. The girls bathroom is clean and the laundry washer is free! No need to rent sheets, but you may rent a locker for a deposit fee. You will get it back.
My experience on this hostel was awfull, they have the longest and strangest check in process ever and most of the staff doesn't speak English. Be very carefull with what you sign because they use the same forms than a regular hotel so it is everything pretty unclear. I understand that it is a business, but they don't care about satisfying customers at all, they only care about making as much money as possible and not breaking any of their stupid rules. SO DON'T GO THERE !!!!
Perfect location, good room, kitchen and breakfast. Helpful and friendly staff. Excellent value for money.
Decent Hostel.... Ivan was a very good host and extremely helpful...very close to the main Nevsy prospect street.
Good location but small kitchen area and bunk beds very shaky and uncomfortable. Small common area for number of people staying here, better options elsewhere in st Petersburg so I checked out early.
Good situation,and Good staff, especially the receptionist Yekaterina,always ready to help you.Easy to find.
