    Hello Every traveler. The best of Cheshire Cat, was Miss Lilian. When I arrived at 5:50 AM, she woke up for help me for every ask, since the check in, city themes, and help me with the address for meet with a friend, she was super welcome. Thanks So much. The other Cheshire Cat's partners was super welcome too, well, the problem with them was the Russian Language. I thinks that, they must improve their way of entering after 00:00. is complicate

    Good hostel, but a bit difficult to find. The staff were really helpful and friendly though, and it’s a good location for the beach and centre of town

    We stayed at the Cheshire Cat during the World Cup. It was conveniently located close to the city and the facilities were clean. There is a small lounge/common area, but the hostel didn't quite provide the opportunity to meet other travels (so if you are looking for that, it may or may not be possible). We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it for someone that needs something quick and simple. It's not a party hostel (at least from our experience).

    Airy, bright and clean rooms and a little cramped yet clean premises. The common kitchen was a great place to hang out with other hostelers. However, most people seemed like they were permanent inmates of the place. Individuals were smoking and consuming alcohol on the premises despite them being prohibited. There is also a pet moving around all over the place. Not a great experience overall.

    Not the best or the worst hostel I've stayed at but it was definitely the worst one in Russia for me. Only 2 showers that have drainage problems. Staff couldn't provide much information about the town and the language barrier made it worse. Atmosphere is nonexistent because all the staff lives in the common/living room. You can find better hostel around for even cheaper. Not recommended

    This place is a S***SHOW. There’s like 7 people who live there because they work there... and they don’t give a f***. They all had lockers in our room and would come in and out as they pleased making so much noise or in the middle of the night. The ac broke on the first night and they didn’t fix it, so our room was a sauna. There was a boy living in the “female” dorm room- All that being said, it’s clean, has good WiFi, and is in a good location. Just be prepared for a s*** show.

    Overall not impressed. Booked a 4 bed female dorm and was placed in a 6 bed mixed dorm with no explanation/apology. Only two showers and two toilets for the whole hostel. Staff had to be prompted for things like toilet paper and people were staying in the lounge area so it couldn't be used socially?! Staff turning on lights in room to check in people past 12am. Sheets didn't fit the beds and drinking water situation was unclear. Positives: PowerPoint near bottom bunks, air conditioning in room.
