Overall it's a pleasant place for short stays and travel in/out of Minsk. Close to bus/train station and 2 supermarkets, but location is not a typical touristic area, but more a functional location. Great staff, very helpful for tips and hints. Likely it's a much better place during the summer with more travelers and backpackers


Decent hostel close to the central station. Some of the staff was really nice and helpfull, but one girl was downright rude when we talked to her about a key to the locker - she acused us for having lost it even though it works the way that they keep it behind the desk...


Very good beds, the blonde at the reception was very friendly and helpful.

Really nice, friendly and helpful staff. Very good location just 10 minutes walk from the city centre and the station. No cooking facilities but there is a supermarket and a pizza take away opposite the hostel. I enjoyed my stay here.


All the staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English. The hostel is well located near the railway and bus station and also convenient for the city centre. reception is staffed 24 hours and covered by CCTV so security is excellent. The kitchen is too small to cook a meal though there is a microwave. It would be good if the directions from the station could be re-written as I got lost trying to follow them! I would happily recommend this hostel.
