I was the only foreign traveller here. Everyone else seemed to be living there long term. Not easy to find as it is down a dark alley, and into an industrial area (noisy). The staff spoke great English but they were aware that this place is not a backpacker heaven .... Bad smell in the room and not much privacy. If you just want a bed for the night before catching the train this place is OK but I would not recommend for solo female travelers as I felt really uncomfortable the whole time.


Great location, above average facilities, and staff who are generally super keen and therefore make all the difference. A little lacking in atmosphere, just like most hostels in Russia, as they all seem to be occupied primarily by locals


The stay was a nightmare. The staff didn't speak English, location was bad, blanket was dirty, showers weren't in a good condition.


Such a cool hostel with real friendly and helpful people at the Rezeption.


The location of the hostel is both good and bad. It's located right next to the Moskovsky train station (which I took) and it literally took about 5-10 minutes just to walk to the hostel from there. Furthermore, the hostel is exactly in downtown! You can go to some great malls, restaurants, and sight seeing places easily. However, the hostel location itself was in a poor, shabby looking area with some creepy people. The staff are kind, but do not speak English.

I loved my stay there. BUT i found a bed bug in my bed and have now bits everywhere


Party Train hostel is a decent hostel in a very good location, being very close to Nevsky Prospekt and only a very few minutes walk from the main train station. The outside appearance of the hostel looks a bit dingy and it is in a shabby backalley, but inside it is surprisingly large, nice and well organised. Staff and all very friendly and happy to chat with you. Large kitchen and TV area which is nice, and a free light breakfast is given which is always big plus. Happy to stay there again :)
