    Really good hostel. Loved the bunkers and the location is really good. The Wi-fi is reeeeally good, as well. The price is awesome. The kitchen and the bathrooms weren't so clean and I saw a small cockroach inside one of the cabinets... There's also only one pan in the kitchen and it's really annoying because if someone is cooking in that pan, you have to wait until they're done and have washed it. I've noticed there are some older people living there too, which is kinda weird.

    The hostel is in a perfect location. Although I had a bit of a problem finding it at first. I was there for three nights. And the only thing that I would complain about is the mattress wasn't very nice. The people were really cool as well and the staff helpful!

    The music at reception was always way to loud and made it very difficult to sleep because the wooden walls are thin. Getting online in the WiFi was virtually impossible for foreign travellers because the system asks for a Russian number to send a confirmation code to get online. Staff was friendly and professional. Location is good. Kitchen is big and yiu have many showers. And the price was good too, you get what you pay. Never understood the part of the WiFi : /

    We stayed at Fontanka for 10 days in total. Staff there was really nice and always helpful. Three of them spoke English very well. Location was good. BUT we found excrements several times in the showers !!! The toilets were never clean (we had just 3 toilets for the entire hostel). Our room was stinky. Nothing was clean or soundproof. Drunk beggars slept in the hall at night. And finally we found BED BUGS on our last day there...

    Beds were very uncomfortable, bathrooms were unclean. When I reached there , my bed was not ready as in no linens were set up on the bed. They waited for 5 mins and then asked me to do it myself. I paid 960 rubles for one night, I expected a bit more. The view from the hostel was good though.a
