Excellent location. Most of the other guests were Russian (including a family group with around eight children...), so it didn't exactly provide for the best atmosphere to meet fellow backpackers and share tips and impressions of the country. Other than that, everything was ok, average. Staff was helpful.


Really thin walls + people (staff included) making noise after midnight = hard to sleep. One day the breakfast just wasn't there. Otherwise good and nice.


All were and worked fine except a toilet of our private room was a problem. Smell was disgusting in the toilet when its door was closed. And the toilet's door must be kept closed since otherwise our bedroom would have smelled very bad too.


I stay two nights in double room whit bathroom +Breakfast (yogurt, tea, coffee, corn flacks, toast +Location +Staff +Room look like realy nice +They rent umbrellas -Single sheet in double bed. So that didn't cover whole bed -Huge hollow in mattress. That mattress should been change in last year to new. That hollow where half of size of mattress. -Bathroom could had cleaner better. -One single coverage for two people. We got another when we ask but why is't there ready?


We had problems with a bag not arriving, but the staff were just so helpful about it, and the location is so good it's nearly hard to believe. Great place.


very friendly and helpful staff at this hostel in a perfect location. A great place to stay with a nice common room. Wifi was shaky.


Very interesting hostel, and my first experience)

Excellent location! Just in the main street of St. Petersburg, beside the Hermitage, and also close to the train station to Moscow. The staff was nice and helpful and the environment was good! I met many people from different nationalities and ages, so it was grand! There are only 3 showers, so sometimes you have to wait a little bit, but it's not a big issue. It's a 5th floor without lift, so those with really big suitcase will have to make an effort! The rest of the facilities were good!


The dorm room I stayed in had a musty smell all the time. Did not liked it at all. The staff was friendly enough to talk to. Though they refused to serve breakfast when we were 4 (yes, exactly that's what they said) minutes late after breakfast closing time. I did not expect that. Bottom line, for the money its not so bad hostel though there is a room for improvement for them.


It was an amazing stay. It's a full breakfast and staff are really friendly
