The Hostel is really good located. The Staff is really helpful and nice. Toilets could be working better. Maybe more space for relaxing. And a bigger sign to find the way to the Hostel.

Cubahostel was a perfect place to stay in St. Petersburg for a week. Everything worked well. Location is great, just in the center, staff was very helpful and they gave me good tips where to go. Like the one really cool cafeteria Vanilla Closet, just around the corner. Really worth for a visit. Such a good coffee and sweets, and most lovely staff :)

Pretty good! Could use a bigger kitchen though. Staff were friendly and the hostel was pretty clean.

Probably the best Hostel I've ever stayed at! Great location, good facilities, excellent atmosphere and even better staff! They were the nicest people we've met in Russia, so helpful and nice! Will definitely go back.

Nice and convenient place. There are a lot of talkative foreiners and only few Russian people. It is an interesting location to stay.

Well situated, nice people, but I wouldn't recommend it unless you're in St-Petersburg to party. We had the bedroom right next to the reception area / common room, and it was impossibly loud until past midnight (music and loud talks, and it was a regular week day). Not reassured by the laconic answer of the night shift receptionist that "*hopefully*, it will be more quiet tomorrow", we decided to move to another hotel the next day. They made no problem at all giving us our money back.

It's the best hostel I've ever been ! Seriously ! We'd celebrated my hen night in St. Petersburg with my 7 girlfriends and everything was perfect! Location (by the Kazan Cathedral), neighbors, so, everything ! We had only one problem- only one hairdryer this hostel has:) I hope that the administration will correct it and buy at least one more hair dryer :) Thanks for these two nights!!! Marina.

Pros: close to the main avenue; most attractions are nearby; friendly staff. Cons: extremely noisy, specially at nights (there are several bars downstairs and you can hear everything from the rooms); i found the hostel boring.

Decent place, nice vibe, friendly staff, close to everything.

Helpful staff, excellent location. 10 minutes from Palace Square.


74%

Very convenient location with friendly staff even though one of them is little bit mechanic somehow. A good choice for those young backpackers who wants to meet new friends around the globe. It would be better if the tap can be more easily accessible in the shower rooms.

Great location and seemed like a bit of a party hostel rather than the quiets sorts.
