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

We stayed at Apple for 3 nights in July. The hostel is in an ideal location, tucked away in a quiet courtyard just a couple of minutes from Nevsky Prospekt. The rooms are clean and tidy with handy reading lamps on each bed. The only real drawback is that there are not enough showers for the whole hostel so when... More

I booked this hotel for two nights and when I arrived things started well. I was offered a shower while I waited for my room which wouldn't be available until 13:00. I took a walk and when I returned at about 12:00 I was told they did not have a room and that they had booked my a room somewhere... More
