It's obvious why this was rated the best hostel in the world. It feels like you just walked into any girl's Pinterest account. It was so comfortable and so clean and so homey. The rooms are well decorated and have creative layouts, and the kitchen is a beautiful conglomeration of various chairs, dishes, and wall decorations. The bathroom is very... More

Its location is excellent as both the Winter Palace and metro are within walkable distance. The staff are super helpful and friendly and prepared to offer any help and advice you need. The common area is very cozy to relax and chat with other lodgers. It also offers shoe dryer though I did not have the chance to use it.... More

It was -15 F when we were in St.Petersburg. Naturally, we stayed inside more than we had planned. It would have been a disaster, but Soul Kitchen has such nice common rooms that we actually enjoyed our time indoors.

Clean rooms, clean common areas, bathrooms and kitchen. Beautifully decorated and conveniently located. Only 15 mins from the great hermitage museum. Still quietly tucked behind the Moyka river. Staff are super friendly, helpful and have a very good command of English. They even have their own map of St Petersburg with very good recommendations. The Soviet style donuts and Shtolle... More

This is said to be the Number 1 hostel in Russia and I’m prepared to believe that. They are well organized and the staff is helpful - and all speak enough English. We stayed in one of the double rooms, which was large enough. The common room is quite spacious and the kitchen is large, with several tables. One of... More

Loved everything about it. It has a good location and it's so cozy and comfy. You can use all of the facilities. You can cook in the kitchen or watch a movie in the common room. I would recommend this place. We were a big group of 26 people. One complaint: We slept in the small room for 4 people,... More

Chic, clean, comfortable, cozy, convenient, kitchen with everything, friendly staff, free buns during breakfast hour. Provided extra blankets when requested. I've stayed at more than a handful of hostels around the world, and this one is certainly one of the better ones, if not the best. The only thing I can complain about is that, we stayed in the private... More

No lift but only located on the 1st floor, so use them muscles. We were greeted with warm friendly smiles. The place felt so cosy with all the facilities you need . My friend and I had a room with a private ensuite (don't think we even asked for that so Winning!). It consisted of tiled bathroom and immaculately decorated... More

Not easy to pick accommodation in Russia based on vast discrepencies in online reviews (often very few) and the guide books. This place needs to be shouted about. Excellent location and more importantly excellent directions they provide that are easy to follow. Warm welcome and historic building. nearly every facility; computer room (yes, some people still prefer not to haul... More

Owned by a young Russian couple Sergei and Lupa whose goal is to make your stay a pleasant experience and not try to rip every penny out of you or the business. There is space in the kitchen, a room to watch the big screen in (with a selection of films to watch - just ask reception or look in... More
