    One of the best hostels I’ve stayed at! Great social atmosphere! You meet a ton of people through their cooking class every night plus it’s a free dinner/snack too! There is always food around-they make a breakfast bread in the morning, Russian snacks and they keep the free food pile stocked with grains and pasta. Kitchen is super well stocked also. The rooms are big! Staff is amazing and will hang out with you/take you to bars. Great location - never needed to use the metro. Extra super clean!

    This is by far the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in. From the beds to the kitchen everything is great. But one of the main reasons this hostel is so good, is because of the staff. They are so helpful and friendly and make you feel at home and feeling at home is the main part here. Everyone gathers either at the kitchen or the common room. Toilets are clean and you will find yourself listen to classical music while there. I will definitely come back here.

    Most probably the best hostel I've visited around the world. Very well situated in the city, the rooms are quite and cosy, and the common parts (kitchen and living room) are awesome: clean, well furnished. They also provide a laundry service and postal services. Cherry on the cake, the staff is perfect: helpful, smiley. I can't think of anywhere else to go if I ever swing by Saint-Petersburg again.
