We stayed at this hostel for 4 nights. Always super clean and relaxing (you could eat on the floor !). Staff is English speaking and the dorms are spacious and comfy. Breakfast is basic but included ! Only downside is that to have fresh air you have to keep windows opened and there are mosquitoes... It's location and quality makes... More

I stayed in this hostel for one night and really enjoyed it. The room was spacy and with pleasant design.The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The location was also very good as it is just by the subway station and a short walking distance from the historic center. The only drawback was that acoustics allowed to hear night activity... More

It's very nice, clean and friendly, but was too difficult to find and too noisy! We found it after an hour and only because we called them and we told them to meet on rubinshteina street. At night we couldn't sleep good because the other guests were very noisy (singing at midnight and speaking loudly in bedroom), nobody of the... More

The hostel is located on a nice side-street running from the Nevsky prospect and very close to a metro station and a bus stop of the buses running to the airport. The hostel itself is very clean and with a huge kitchen with cooking facilities and many showers. The private room I stayed in was really tiny and quite small,... More

Three weeks in Oct 2012, I should have written my review earlier, I want to thank everybody at Mir Fontanka for the excellent hospitality. I am looking at reviews by "eemme" and "Alex C" and it's all true. And I never found noise after midnight, even with a coed group of 10 Russian kick-boxers on tour or a reunion for... More

This newly opened hostel is located near in the city centre, near the Dostoevskaya/Vladimirskaya metro station and a couple of minutes away from Nevsky prospekt. Our room (a private 3-bed) was really big and comfy, the bathrooms were shared but it wasn't a big deal since there are 3 of them and there are even more showers. There is a... More

Definitely one of the best hostels in Petersburg in quality, price, cleanness, professionalism and customer's comfort. Located in the central district (M. Dostoyevskaya) within walk distance from most fancy places of the city. The hostel is very modern and has a lot of space. The rooms are wide and fresh and clean. The kitchen is all new and the breakfast... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
When we say MIR Fontanka, we mean... A hostel situated in the very center of Saint-Petersburg, but hidden from the city fuss. A discreet yard 5 minutes walk from the Nevsky prospect, with arches, fountains and hammered street lamps will lead you to a place where the contemporary and the antique combines peacefully. Besides our friendly English-speaking staff you will find there a comfortable accommodation and a set of services included (Wi-Fi, breakfast, kitchen utilities, hairdryer, iron, washing machine). Experience the Saint-Petersburg cosy atmosphere at MIR Fontanka. ... more   less
