It is an apartment that you share with others rather than a hostel. The owner is very nice but you don't get the travel support as maps and what is good to look at like you do in other hostels
Great, clean hostel and most importantly a brilliant location
If you are after a place to party then this is it. It is kind of like a university dorm. If that is what you are after then this is the place for you. Personally it wasn't suited to me. The hostel has a buzzer on the door but all you need do is press it and they let you right in. To increase security it would be good to have a pass or something that you flash so that they know that you are staying there.
This is the best hostel I have ever stayed in. Right from the moment you walk in, it feels like home. There is plenty of space if you need quiet time or communal areas if you want to get to know other travellers. The staff are the best that I have encountered anywhere. The location is in the heart of everything. You would be crazy to pass up the opportunity to stay here. I am going to recommend this hostel to anyone I know going to St Petersburg
It was a reasonable place to stay, nothing special though.
If you are thinking about staying in the one bedroom by yourself. Don't. It's through a separate part of the building and when they opened the door I thought for a moment that it was the janitors storage cupboard. No windows and tidy, literally a small single bed and room to stand up. Plus there is a green light that is on all night. Plus all through the night sound of vomiting and people coughing up who knows what. I would definitely not stay there again
