    The hostel is perfectly located, close to everything in Saint-Petersburg's center. The staff was helpful and available. There was everything one can desire : fridge, showers, washing-machine and so on (even a guitar and a piano!).

    The best thing of this hostel is the location, then almost all staff was friendly, except for a girl that was totally rude and unhelpful when I had an emergency, bathrooms are good but beds are, I can say, the worst beds I've ever seen

    No vodka shots at the entrance (as promised) and also one of our beds was occupied while we were out. The location is perfect, but the hostel's management is lacking. A negative experience overall, but the location saves everything.

    We had booked a double occupancy room, which looked a lot better in photos than it was in reality. You're not allowed to roam around in your shoes, not allowed to smoke inside the room, despite having a window in the room. I mean, I went on a vacation, not to a boarding school where I face so many restrictions. The staircase area from one floor of the hostel to another had a very unpleasant smell. I personally didn't like it at all and left it within a couple of hours instead of staying 3 nights

    Staff not friendly, first I thought it was because it was too early when I arrived and maybe the lady at the reception was tired and sleepy. However, staff changed, it got late but the same unpleasant treatment happened. At least the room I was, people were eating inside it, so the floor was dirt with food. We have booked two beds but we were allowed to use just one locker. The towel was very small and rough.

    This place is a poor excuse for a hostel. It’s really dirty - there are flies everywhere because there is old food all over the kitchen, nobody cleans their plates, the fridge is warm and smelly. The oven was falling out of its socket and looked unsafe so wasn’t even tempted to use the stove. The floor is dirty. The receptionists clearly hate their job and their life as they have no interest in helping you with anything and have rude attitudes. The hostel is full of people living there too.
