The hostel is super clean and have nice accomodations, but there're many people living there and there's no stoce in the kichten, so it's not a kitchen. PAY ATENTION: IF YOU DON'T NEED A VISA FOR RUSSIA DON'T PAY THE 'CITY TAX' THAT THE GIRL IN THE RECEPTION ASKS YOU, SHE TOOK ME 250 RUB

This was the best of the 3 hostels which we stayed in in St Petersburg.


Great staff/cleanliness/facilities. Very strange customers though!


Very clean hostel. They have a very good team of staffs and the value for money is probably one of the best you can find in the city. I definitely recommend it!


My name is Lena and I am from Tyumen, Russia. The hostel is amazing! Even though that was my first hostel experience). You will definitely enjoy the atmosphere regardless of your age and identity. The staff is very friendly and all of them speak really good English (that was essential as i stayed with my english-speaking friend). They helped her with the registration etc.

Fantastic location and staff spoke excellent English and were helpful in every way they could. The kitchen on each floor was just a kettel, microwave and fridge but enough for making breakfast and sandwiches. Free laundry was a real bonus for me. No other English speakers seemed to be staying there but that has been par for the course across most of Russia. Excellent overall and would recommend
