A great place to stay in Spb. The girls that work there will do anything to help everybody and the location is a walk away from many attractions. I love it!!

it was great stay in this hostel. Value for money and excellent staff. umm I cant wait to come back saint Petersburg and this hostel :)


Very helpfull staff, clean place, backpackers friendly


I felt a bit lost with this hostel.Staff does not bother to recommend activities to people. There is a lot to do in the city but you have to find out all by yourself which can be frustrating. At night staff used to be really loud, so I woke up several times at 5 in the morning and couldnt go back to sleep since they would not calm down. Also I felt staff does not normally mix with non russians or russian speaking guests. In short, didnt like the atmosphere,didn't feel like a backpacker's place.


Love the cat.


This is one of the best hostel I have ever been to. For sure it's the cleanest. Location-wise, it's 5-6 minutes walking to a metro station, located in a quiet area of Petersburg (on a parallel street there are embassies to give you an idea), close to many restaurants and 24hours shops. The girls are really nice and there's always a nice atmosphere in the hostel. They also have a lovely cat, Mochila :-) Highly recommended! The only issue is that the common area is a bit too small.


Everything was nice


Nice place, very good location, clean and cheap. Would recommend it to anyone.
