This hostel is very cheap, and perfect for students or people travelling alone on a budget. A basic breakfast was included, which was nice. However, the shower did run out of how water, so it would be wise to shower early or the night before to ensure a comfortable shower. The staff was very friendly and service-minded and we had...

I stayed here for 4 nights as I got to be good friends with one of the staff members through other means and I could have spent months here! Such an interesting building to turn into a hostel. I suppose the only bad thing you could say about this place is that it is up four or five flights of... More

This place is great! One of my favorite hostels I've been to-it's just a couple minutes away from the Hermitage Museum and has a central location to most of the best sights in St. Petersburg. I also like the layout: there is a bar/kitchen area in an open layout on the main floor that you walk by on your way... More

Mir hostel was the highlight of my S.P. experience. Overall, it's clean, spacious, safe, lay-back and friendly. Of course, the location is worth a million rubles. People of all ages stay here so I did not feel out of place. By chance I spent a night at co-ed dorm because an overbooking situation but the staff offered that night for... More
