Hostel was hard to find. There were just some small painting on the ground, no eny textes on the wall or on the door. It´s something like 7:th floor and no lift. Kitchen was small and fridge full. We got drinking water from there. The guy who was working there was nice and helpful and spoke english.
It was a nice central location, everything was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Not ideal for people who are looking for more than a bed though since there isn't a common room or anything. They do have a kitchen,bathrooms and a washing machine you can use. The beds were fine and everything was clean.
do not book there! it is a prison not a hostal. they are very unfriendly and do not speak english. we moved an other hostal.
Nigh on impossible to find, just find the door security plate with the number of the hostel on it and key the number in. 5 flights up. Staff do not speak English so no help. Clean and modern...IKEA budget range. Quiet. Kitchen facilities good. Showers leak and smell slightly,hot water,towels are provided. No common area, apartment rather than Hostel. Easy walk to City centre approx 15.mins. Cheap enough!
What it is not: a hostel What it is: An apartment with few rooms, 2 showers, 2 toilets and a small kitchen. The supposed staff (!) speaks very poor english and can not provide you with any helpful information. The room we were offered was clean and the bed was alright. The rest of the apartment is in good condition. Important: There's no piece of advise, that the hostel is where you expect it to be. We called the Hostel 3 times before we knew how to enter the main door. Very confusing!
don't know how to get inside this hostel when we find this place, no name, no number outside until call them, no staff for cleaning, but we enjoy staying here, a small nice balcony and window by the river side, two block form the Mariinsky theatre, good wifi signal.
Good location, and the hostel is very spacious. However, other than the fact that it had dorm beds it didn't really seem to be set up as a hostel - but this might be because we were there out of peak season. The owner and people staying/living there were friendly, but I couldn't really tell who worked there, and the owner was usually not around - again, maybe because of the season. The facilities were good, but could have been much cleaner and the lounge area needs a bit of furniture.
It would be great if they had lockers to leave stuff.
Very good hostel. Good location, clean and very pleasant company. Thank you guys.
