Great hostel, but I had a hard time sleeping there. PLEASE PUT MOSQUITO NETS ON WINDOWS! Наденьте сетку против комаров на окна! Thanks


We very much enjoyed our stay here! The staff was terrific. It's good to know that the hostel has two different locations, very close to each other though. The one we stayed at was a bit quieter, which was fine for us, and we were offered to move to the other location, which had more of a party vibe it seemed.


The staff and environment is absolutely perfect. Especially Nesta, she is the most helpful and sweet staff I've ever seen.


We had a great time staying at Apple Hostel in St Petersburg. The staff is very nice and friendly, and the atmosphere is good. The location is super, and we could walk to all the attractions and the night life and shopping =) The wifi was a bit unstable, but there is a net cable you can use if you need proper connection.


Too many beds and not enough common space or toilets. One person on duty is not enough to handle the number of guests. Mosquitos were brutal and could easily be alleviated by installing screens on windows and/or fans in rooms. Fans could also help with the summer heat. Many long-term guests affected the vibe.

Location, location, location. This hostel has a great one! You're one street away from Nevsky Street, which is the main street in St. P. In addition to its great location, Apple Hostel has a great staff who are always happy to help you with any requests you might have. The hostel also has better security than most other hostels, which is due in large part to the fact that there's some sort of police office in the adjacent building. Its an plus if security is an important factor to you.


The location is excellent, close to an underground station, main touristic sights, supermarket, pubs and clubs. The staff was super friendly and welcoming, they create a very cossy atmosphere and give excellent recommendations, thaks nastya!! I would recomend them to start asking to label the products stored on the fridge indicating check out date, had the feeling lots of things there were from people that have already checked out.


The hostel doesn't look like the photos shown in the advert, at the moment of arrive you can see it. The girls at the reception are very helpful and kind, but facilities are definitely not the best, we were aprox 20 to 25 people and only 2 toilets, one share a shower, plus extra 2 showers... Not enough, also confusion about the assigned bed so one night one guy came and his bed was occupied by another guy.... Lockers not enough, I had a locker in another room... All in all was ok, I only sleep.


Great hostel really in the middle of everyting! Very nice and helpful staff, thanks for all ! I really enjoyed my stay, the hostel was the best place to start a transsiberian-trip.. Warm greetings from Germany
