I didn't actually get to stay here in the end but the staff were incredibly helpful with sorting out my tourist voucher and then eventually cancelling my booking for me when my dates changed and my friends wanted to stay in a different hostel which turned out to be horrible. Don't stay in Old Flat House - try this one instead.

great hostel. the girls were very attentive and the beds were comfortable. i don't know if everybody got this, but i had 3 (!) plugs by my bed. there were only 2 showers but they never seemed to get crowded, never saw anyone waiting in line. there's a washer in there and you can iron your clothes for free. nice breakfast. definitely good value for money.

The hostel is well located; near by a metro station and just 30 minuets walk away from the winter palace. A super market is also near by. Dormitories, common room & kitchen as well as toilettes and showers are very clean. Really special: The kind and helpful staff. Never found such a warm atmosphere!

Can't think of a better way to run a hostel. Everything was just perfect, and I hope to come back some day.

I really enjoyed my stay at Backpacker's Republic and mainly because of the staff, they're fun and cheerful, that even when we had communication problems, it was still a fun conversation :-) The hostel also has a cheery look that it's quite refreshing.

Great atmosphere in this hostel. The way it's run really makes you feel at home. As the hostel is quite small and people hang out in the kitchen a lot, it's easy to get in contact with the other travellers and exchange experiences. We'd definitely come back there!

Staff is friendly but disorganised when it comes to managing reservations. They seemed totally confused when we arrived & it took them a while to find our booking. At 1st, we thought we couldn't stay. Despite the weird start, we had a fantastic time there. Friendly atmosphere with people from all over the world who want to socialise. Pink rooms look so cute & bathrooms are quite luxurious for a hostel. Beds are comfy & good quality (no squeaking). It was super quiet at night even in an 8 bed.

I stayed there for two weeks. The stuff is amazing, helpful and a lot of fun. We even drank vodka together! I met a lot of other travelers but somehow still had some privacy and peace of mind. The breakfast included is a great plus. I checked 'average' for security as non of the doors are locked at any time of day

The staff were fantastic- friendly, helpful,always went 'the extra mile' for their guests. It was super clean and the breakfast was good with real eggs too! But the hostel itself is cramped with a tiny kitchen and sitting room facilities consist of three child's beanbags decoratively arranged against the wall in the entrance.

The BackPacker's Republic was easily the best hostel I've ever stayed in - the facilities were great, the place was very clean and cozy, the staff was friendly - I can't say enough good things about it! I will definitely be returning during my next trip to St. Petersburg.

All the staff at Backpacker's Republic made my stay in St. Petersburg a breeze. They gave me great recommendations of places to eat and things to do. I particularly liked the freshly made Russian pancakes in the morning and the homely feel of the hostel.

This is a really new hostel but it's really well set up! Veronika and the team do an amazing job, including making breakfast for everyone! It's a small, homely hostel, they only thing that could be improved is more toilets/showers. :)

BackPacker's is a clean, spacious and quiet hostel. They also have a great complimentary breakfast -- definitely would stay here again!
