The hostel is amazing! Best staff ever! They helped me a lot while preparing for the Transiberian Trip. The location is amazing, closing to the metro and to all city attractions. They give you tips about restaurants and you must follow them!

One of my most beloved hostel in Petersburg, Russia!) Guests are from ALL OVER THE WORLD and the atmosphere are cordial and welcoming! Location wise this hostel is centrally located in Petersburg, very close to Nevskii Prospect, the Champs Elysees of St. Petersburg! Restaurants, coffee houses, museums, and even St. Isacc's Cathedral(Church of the spilled blood) are all within walking... More

A female friend and I stayed at "Apple 2" for a week. We think Apple 2 is where they send the overflow from Apple Hostel when it's full (it's in an unmarked, disused office block around the corner). There were two disgusting port-a-loo toilets between 40 patrons and two portable showers that were located in the lounge room(!). A class... More

This quick review is a little late. I've visited St Petersburg twice now in 2011/2013 and both times stayed at Apple Hostel. Great Hostel close to the City centre, met some awesome people which I'm still in contact with. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Bathrooms could do with upgrading or simply redesigning but they are ok. All in all... More

Stayed here for 3 nights - it was perfect. Great location, very friendly helpful staff who gave us lots of useful information about where to visit and eat etc. Staff really went above and beyond to help. Free wifi, good shower facilites. Rooms were good and had lockers. Highly recommended, would definitely return here.

I stayed here for four nights, was an excellent place to stay, was centrally located, very clean and felt like a great home for my stay in St Petersburg. The staff were the best part of the hostel, always friendly and willing to help, special thanks to Yulia for her helpful tip and always friendly smile. Will defiantly stay here... More

Probably the best hostel I've stayed in in Russia. The staff is very friendly and helped me a lot planning the rest of my trip. Note that the Wi-Fi doesn't work very well in the rooms, and is much better in the common area.

For travelling in a budget this place is a must! Offers all the basics! Lovely staff members and very knowledgeable. If all you need is a bed and shower then go for it! And spend all day exploring the wonderful city and beautiful rivers.

When travelling with a group beware of the annex building this hostel has, as chances are you might end up there (it is just around the corner of the main building). This place is a messy and old-fashioned but does, like the main building, feature a kitchen. The plus side of a stay at Apple is most definitely the staff... More
