It is really in a good location. You can go to some touristic places by walking. Not that is a problem but it sounded more like a family place. I holped it would be that kind of party hostels where you have lots of crazy tours and pub crawls.


The hostel is very well located: just at one corner of St. Petersburg's most famous avenue. In general terms the hostel is very clean (they even make you take off your shoes in order to keep everything cleaner), and the staff is very friendly. However, the atmosphere is not the best one for a non-Russian citizen.


Staff doesn't know that Local Registration is not applied on below 7 days stay

This place is a bargain. For around £30 we got our own double twin and very central on Nevsy Prospect. The staff are always very helpful and make every effort to help you. The facilities are great- very large kitchen and eating area. There are plenty of toilets and showers for everyone.


There were 2 large group of school kids while we were there. there isnt any problem with them but with that amount of ppl in the hostel, they always run out of hot water...


If you wanna useful location and hostel you can choose Hostel Life freely.


One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. It is definitely a younger hostel and lacks some character, but the location is prime and the facilities are clean.


The hotel is nice in a nice area. However, the staff is very unfriendly and not willing to help you. Additionally they make you pay 300 rubles per person extra when you arrive without telling you before.


Staff so kind and the location is very good.
