They charged me to register with them, which previous hostels did for free. they charged for some crappy slippers, which i wouldnt mind if it was listed on this site. The place was dirty (except the bathrooms), security was poor, some people had some things stolen in their sleep. At no fault of the faculty, the guests were loud, inconsiderate (3am turning on all the lights and playing music loudly in the dorm) If I were to recommend this place, it would to be to NOT stay in the big dorm


Be careful, it were stolen all my money at this hostel !

Dear guest, the administration is not responsible for your belongings left unattended. We have cameras in common rooms, but not in dormitory. As police officer told you in front of us (staff) there is high probability the money (1500rub) could be left in some bar or in any other place. We do not allow to drink alcohol in the hostel, but it's your choice to take rest in way you wish. We are really sorry about your lost, though does it mean your rating shows your personal emotional only,doesn't?


The most important things of this hostel are the location (just next to train station), close to shopping center (Galeria), close to the most popular Nevskiy prospekt, kitchen is very nice. In winter, inside hostel is very comfortably warm. The staff are quite nice. But, you need some time to figure out to reach the hostel because it is located inside the warehouse area backside of Galeria and next to Moscow train station, blankets seems a bit old. We really enjoyed our stay there.


I'd like to inform all other travelers as well as hostelworld.com that the hostel charges extra fees which they don't mention on the web. They said we have to have sleepers and if we don't have, we must buy a one for 50 rubles. And they also charged 200 rubles for each person which they said it is a tax Russian government cuts! What they said is we need to pay that 200 rubles in anywhere we stay in Russia! Staff made a favor for us as well, as keeping our luggage until our train in the night..

Dear Guest, migration service notification couldn't be included in standard rate for dormitory bed. We do our job legally. So if our country law says to any hostel, hotel or even your friend's house to notify about any foreigner comes with 800000 rubles penalty we have to do it. As we explained during our negotiation - big hotels include this fee in price, we can't do that until all the hostels will start to work totally legally. Being non-registered you could have 5000rub fine living Russia.


The hostel is literally just next to the train station that links with Saint Petersburg, which made life very simple when I was departing late at night. The station has a metro line and it is also next to a large shopping centre which has a supermarket. It is about a 30 minute walk from the main 'tourist' area. There were some nice long stay guests. There is nothing wrong with this hostel.
