I don't know what to say, other than this is the best hostel EVER. The place is incredible, staff are amazing. Everything is custom designed to be just what the traveller needs. I loved it so much.... my only regret is I did not plan a free evening to further enjoy everything Soul Kitchen Hostel has to offer. THANKS SO MUCH FOR AN AMAZING STAY!!

A great hostel in an old beautiful building in the city centre. Close to everything, very clean, with everything you might need to relax and enjoy your holidays. The stuff were very friendly and helpful. The only downside is that the walls are really thin so you can hear literally everything that you neighbors are doing. Despite this, I'll definitely recommend this hostel to anyone traveling to St Petersburg! Thanks!

The secret behind this great hostel, are the girls that work the front desk. Yana, Maria, Sasha and the rest, they are just the best and always trying to make you feel comfortable in the hostel and your way in the city. I was preparing a Mexican dinner, and they helped me translate the ingredients into Russian to go shopping, then offered to help me cook. We had a great night eating Mexican food, and I will miss their company in the kitchen. Only draw back are the large groups, beware.

Soul Kitchen Junior has got to be the best hostel I have stayed in! All of the staff were super friendly. Yana and Maria also helped me out with everything I needed during my week there. The beds are big and comfortable. The kitchen was spacious and had all you needed! There is a super cool computer/gaming room and a big lounge room where you can watch movies on a projector. It's very clean and has a enough toilets and showers for everyone to use comfortably.

This is definitely one of the best hostels on the planet at the moment. I know that's a bold statement but Soul Kitchen Junior really couldn't get much better than it already is. The location is very central, the staff wonderful and the experience just golden. The beds are enormous and very comfy (curtains and lights too), the kitchen huge, the bathroom facilities clean and numerous, the common areas (yes there's more than one) chilled and relaxing. Do yourself a favour and stay here.

A lot of love and thought went into designing this place as they get all the small details right. Big comfortable beds, electricity socket in locker, shoe dryers, free phone calls, free to use iMacs and internet, huge and very relaxing sofa in lounge room with a lot of things to keep you entertained (books, LPs, Wii) and a huge kitchen (blender, toaster etc. it's all there). Great location and very clean. But the best thing about this place is the amazing staff!! Very friendly and helpful.

Definitely one of the best hostels we have ever been to. We had a 3 person room, which was bigger than some hotel room. Everything was really spacious, clean and new. There were enough shower rooms to never be in in line. The big kitchen allows you to make your own food and there was a big living area to hang out (what we both didn't really use). The staff was extremely helpful with ideas, giving routes, good tips were to shop and eat. The location is makes it easy to reach everything by foot.

Superb hostel - one of the best I've stayed in after more than a year of traveling. The only downside was that my mattress was seriously bad - sharp metal bed springs sticking into me all over the place, plus the mattress was sagging so you kept rolling into the dip in the middle - so I had six very uncomfortable nights with bad sleep. Others told me they had the same problem with their beds. But despite this, it's such a nice hostel if still go back!

Hello, thanks for your feedback! It's so unfortunate that you felt uncomfortable on the mattress, pity we didn't know about this issue until now, but we'll make sure that the problem will be fixed! Safe travels, Soul Kitchen hostel management
