It was nice time in BackPacker's Republic! The really great staff, especially Asya! I felt like I at home! I will recommend this hostel!
Great new hostel in St. Petersburg! Everything seems to function as it should, and the staff are really friendly and helpful. Breakfast included is a nice bonus too. Definitely would recommend this hostel for everyone.
BackPacker's Republic is an affordable option in St Petersburg. It offers spacious dorms with lots of natural light and comfy beds. The wifi is excellent. The breakfast is good and offers cereal, toast and jam. It's about a 3-5 minute walk to the closest metro. There is no common room other than the kitchen/dinning area. The staff are excellent and go out of their way to be helpful and friendly.
Pretty new hostel and they're doing things the right way! Staff were fantastic. Katya was a huge help to me to try and find my lost iphone. All the staff were great at helping to make sure i had a good time We had russian pancakes for breakfast and there was a dinner (though I missed it). Lovely people in the hostel, definitely has lots of different travellers, not just the usual fellow aussies I'm used to. It was great to speak with people from different nationalities. Perfect for me in Russia.
BackPacker's Republic is a great place to stay. It is really cozy and you feel immediately at home, you can feel that it was designed with much love and by fellow travellers. The rooms are spacious and you have a personal locker and a shelf for your personal belongings. Only minus is the lack of a common room. The neighbourhood is nice and it is close to parks and the river. To Hermitage its a 25 minutes walk. It's a place to enjoy St. Petersburg. I totally recommend it.
Veronica and all of the administrators make Backpackers Republic a wonderful place to stay!
Superb hostel in the awesome city. Very clean, centrally located in Lietyny district close to Chernyshevskaya metro station on Red Line. Owner Veronica and all other friendly admin ladies will make you feel at home. Definitely 100% recommended.

Very nice staff! good breakfast included. room wasn't big enough but it was ok. They care about your stay. equipped kitchen and you can stay there and have dinner at a very good price. near a metro station!
Absolutely fantastic hostel, wish there were more like this one around. Small yet very cozy and clean, located centrally. Staff deserves a separate praise. Eating Veronika's pancakes and chatting all evening with Ljuba are definitely great memories. Keep it up, guys - I'll be back!
The location is perfect - only a short walk from the metro with many cheap (or expensive) places to eat nearby. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Just a wonderful place.

This brand new hostel is excellent. All the staff (as well as the owners) were extremely helpful and very fun to be around. The facilities are good, clean, and what you'd expect from a good hostel. Full kitchen too. And location is very good, not on Nevsky, but walking distance, and near a metro station, as well as tons of trolley buses going everywhere. But don't take the dinner they offer every night, its far too expensive (250 rubles) for what you get. Highly recommended hostel though!
The hostel, and especially the staff, are great. We had a wonderful time and would definitly recomend it. The only thing, its about a 35-40 min walk to the center of the city (however, the subway station is near by). If you don´t mind the walk, then its an amazing option where you will sure make friends!
