Great location, on top floor of a typical old apartment building with a somewhat scary but very authentic elevator. Staff was very helpful. Enough bathroom facilities, kitchen is a tad small. Coming back late at night was no problem. Best is to tell the staff before you go out. One night they gave us the key to the main door downstairs. Otherwise you can ring the bell or call their phone number. We had no problems at all getting back around 2 or 3 am. Definitely Recommendable.
Felt very secure because the staff would lock the door and go to bed, therefor locking us out of the hostel two nights in a row. It happens though. Aside from that, the staff was friendly.
Excellent location, easy to find and a few minutes away from the center. Rooms, showers and toilets are clean. It has free Wifi and computers in the common area. Have to say about very nice and helpful staff. Thank you guys, I would definitely come back again!

The hostel has great location near metro station (near University). Rooms, kitchen and other facilities are clean. Not all staff members speak fluent English but they are able to provide basic information. The hostel provides the towels but they should be definitely of bigger size (they provide only hand towels, instead bath towels).
Location on this hostel is ok., cleanliness too is ok, but staff is awful (especially Angelica). First in the evening in big rain I ran to ATM to take cash, because staff don't gave me allow for pay from the morning. Later from the morning water does not work, when I asked why, staff told "I forgot to tell you about repairing of sewage system. Sorry". For this reason, never go to this place.
Once you find it and get passed the door, it's a great place!

Great hostel. Staff are very helpful, nice common area, clean kitchen. No locks on the dorm doors, but there are lockers available.
A very clean and modern place in an old appartment building near Tolstoi Square (and metro station). Maybe slightly away from the city centre (it'll take either 20 minutes on foot, or 10 minutes by metro + escalators), but other than that: excellent.
Grant key access cards to all guests vs. requiring to wake up the night clerk everytime one wants to enter.
It is great hostel at great location. Going to recommend it to all my friends as well as visit it again :)
