It is one of the most awful hostel where I have been. Very dirty! Stuff was unfriendly and didn't want to help with ordinary questions. The location is good but to find a hotel is very difficult cause to find the the entrance you have to go around 5 minutes in a bad district and in the night is very dangerous . For this money it is able to find better place for living.
This place is suitable only for advance backpackers. It's extremely dirty! I guess showers were never cleaned and the floor in room was full of dirt. I have no idea how people can stay in such conditions for long term. Probably some lockers for personal belongings existed, but the stuff was unwillingly to open it, so in fact there was no security. The price is very low - you pay nothing, you get nothing. If you accept the deal, you can't comply. On this terms it is a fair deal.
The hygienic conditions were not very appropriate taking into account taht we had to buy slippers to be able to stay in the place ... We were abliged to make another registration and finally we were even not able to get one (out of 7). And I think we did not really need this registration as we stayed only 2 night in St. Petersburg.

The hostel is very disorganized, they wanted to charge us more than what was specified in the website. They couldn’t charge us because we didn’t agree, but I saw they charging other travellers a fee that was not specified anywhere. The location is quite good, you can go walking to the famous historic and touristic places of the city, but the hostel is in a place kind of dark and hidden, so probably not very safe.
When you go there, be sure to have 200rub/person for registration even if you're staying less than three days (some hostels allow you not to register if you stay less than the minimum limit) and to have 50rub/person for a pair of their slippers, or a pair of indoor shoes because shoes/socks/walking barefoot isn't allowed inside. If I had known about those two expenses beforehand, I would have had no negative comment whatsoever.
ugly place, near to the railway, over a car repair shop, with migrant workers as guests
Wonderful place, conveniently located. The best value for money you'll get in Petersburg.
It's a good place. Not a luxury place, but it is very cheap. The location is very good, in the centre, close to a supermarket and close to the main train station. The staff is helpful. The kitchen is well equipped, internet works and the whole hostel is cleaned regularly. The atmosphere is friendly.
