Nice conveniently located hostel close to main train station, metro and city centre. Also lots of supermarkets and cafes nearby. The female dorm was lovely and I met some great people. There were a lot of older Russians who dominated the kitchen and bathroom facilities which was a little bit tricky at times, not quite the same relaxed feel I've had in other hostels! Toilets for women were also very limited which was annoying. It did the job though and I don't regret my decision to stay there!

All most everything was very nice. The most disappointing thing was. *** I booked this hostel because it included breakfast!!!, so the information says. Well, breakfast was Not included and the manager had no idea what I was talking about. I even showed on the web site and she just shrugged her shoulders.

Old city was hard to find but overall a good place to stay. Curtains on beds are great for privacy. There was no hot water on one evening and wifi access was very patchy in the dorms. Otherwise it was a good stay.

By far the worst hostel we stayed at in months of traveling. They don't have the mixed dorm (still waiting for our refund!), so we were shunted into a closet adjoining the common room, which was full of loud drunk men all night. The place was filthy and decades behind all the other (cheaper) places we stayed in Russia. There are so many nice places to stay in St. Petersburg, don't make the mistake of staying here.
