One of the best hostels I've stayed at. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the whole place is very clean (seems to be cleaned at least twice daily), the female dorm I stayed in was very comfortable with lockers, chargers and curtains. The kitchen is really well resourced too with cutlery. The location is excellent - only ten minutes walk to the Hermitage. Definitely recommend staying here.

Amazing hostel. Comfortable double beds and big rooms. The bathrooms are always clean, the shared spaces are beautifully designed and perfect to use in a rainy day, with nice details like movies in a projector, good computers, or a huge kitchen with all you need to cook. Its the perfect mix between a fun hostel and a relaxing one, and the stunning design of the whole hostel makes it even better. Will go back to stay for a longer period! My favorite hostel after 10 years of traveling!

Undoubtedly the best hostel in St Peter, and without a doubt one of the best I have ever stayed in my life. The kitchen is the highlight, being there with everyone around does make you feel like home. The only thing regarding my stay that I believe is noteworthy was the fact that taxis are hard to get. I had one hour to spare before my train to Moscow, and taxis would not come in time. I do suggest you plan your taxi in the wee hours in the morning well ahead and prepare a contingency plan.

In a word: awesome. The beds were super comfortable, and the bathrooms spotless. Feels like you're staying with friends and it's in a perfect central location. I only wish I could have stayed longer!

After reading the reviews and seeing the 100% rating you want to believe that it can't be true - no way could a hostel be that good. Oh, but it is! This has got to be the nicest hostel I have ever stayed in (and I have stayed in a lot of hostels around the world). It's super clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms have enough space, and the place is beautifully decorated. I honestly didn't want to leave- the place was better then my house. Also, the hostel has a great location!

Very beautiful and clean hostel, but no pub crawls, city walks or hostel dinners arranged.

Staff were very friendly with very helpful directions and suggestions and where to go and where to eat, location very good, stayed in a dorm room and loved that every bed had a lamp and privacy curtains. Wish I could take the hostel to every city I was travelling to!

I was blown away by how amazing the Soul Kitchen is. The bed, the rooms, and all the facilities were absolutely top-notch, and the decor of the place was just perfect. But the real highlight of my stay was the staff, who were always friendly, warm and helpful. I always felt at home, and was sad to leave after a week!

Soul Kitchen was a wonderful hostel to stay at. It was very well laid out and clean. I stayed in a private room and it was huge with a bed in a loft. Beautiful place to come home to. Staff was lovely and very helpful. Only thing missing was breakfast.

I can honestly say that this is the best hostel I have stayed at anywhere in the world. The kitchen is well equipped, the common area is cozy, with games available. The computers are Apple desktop computers (we didn't need to use these as we had our own). The staff were great&the hostel is only a short walk from the main attractions in St. Petersburg. A 5 star hostel, you would be silly to go anywhere else. Well done on setting up this travel home - it is a hostel made by backpackers. Ana&Liam

This is without a doubt the best hostel I have ever stayed in - and I've stayed in a lot of hostels! The staff are friendly and always available to help. They even made snacks for the guests! In our 4-night stay, we had waffles, pancakes and chocolate cake. YUM! The female dorm we stayed in was clean and comfortable, with gorgeous built-in bunk beds that each had curtains to give you a little privacy for changing and sleeping etc. The shared bathroom was equally clean with hot showers all day.

Probably the best hostel I have ever stayed in. Immaculately clean, friendly staff with a great knowledge of the area and perfectly located. Can't imagine staying anywhere else in St. Petersburg!

Generally everything worked really nicely. I personally wouldn't mind, if the place was a bit shaggy, like some other hostel I have been accommodating. Like condition of surfaces and furniture etc, but hostel is really nice anyways and I would recommend the hostel to my friends too, if they are up to that kind of accommodation. Bed was really good in dorm room, I liked the wideness of it, so the quality of the beds is really good and I like it. Maybe your hostel is already a bit too good ;)
