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.

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

During my trip with two friends in Saint-Petersburg I spent one week in this hostel. The atmosphere is great, it is like a family, everyone talks to everyone, share their stories and eat together when we have time. The staff speaks good english and is very helpful when you want to discover this great city

We were a team of student guides and we booked well in advance to get a separate dorm rooms for just our group. I was confirmed several times that we get two 8-bed dorms and a 3-bed dorm to fit us. The staff was quick in replying to my e-mails and everything seemed to be going well, but when we... More

I stayed here for a week during a study trip with some other college students from the Netherlands. The staff was very friendly and can really make you feel "at home", the Nevsky Prospekt (Main street) is just around the corner, all basic needs of a hostel are provided and of acceptable quality. The hostel could do with some maintenance,... More

After having waited for more than 8 hours for a solution they finally put us in separated rooms both extremely crowded and noisy and... More
