A fantastic place right in the thick of things. Close to St. Catherine's, it's a warm and friendly place. Clean and cool, the beds were nice and the price was right. Small tip: take a right outside and cross the street. You'll find and amazing and cheap vegitarian cafe. I highly recommend it!!!

The best part about the hostel was the hospitality provided by the staff. Especially when organising my trip they helped me with all me rearrangements with the reservation and were nice and helpful also when we arrived. The place is located in the most amazing spot, since it is just in the centre of St. Petersburg, but yet a bit...

Though I reached the hostel quite early in the morning, I couldn't check in for obvious reasons but they managed to keep my luggage and offered their couch 😊 The best thing about the place is that its actually at the city center. From all the eating joints to the metro station and square palace most of the places are...

This place is in a great location, is pretty damn cheap for where its situated too. You have showers/cookng facilities, as with any other place. The place could do with a spruce up, wifi, unless you are in the common sitting area, can be a bit on/off. Staff are helpful too, only thing I would say, is if you speak...

The hostel is amazing and is very close to town. I asked the staff for advice on food and nightlife. All great things. The rooms were clean and they had nice shower rooms. I stayed in a 10 bed room with my friend.

A lifetime experience. There's a revolutionary inside of all of us! Recommended by LONELY PLANET. Author's choice Let's see if you're rrreally smart! Quizz: What does Rachmaninov have to do with Che Guevara? Answer: CUBAHOSTEL Cubahostel is located in the very same building where the famous composer Rachmaninov has lived and worked. Years later, it was made a Socialist Communalka. Nowadays, it is the right choice for those looking for budget prices in the very heart of St Petersburg. Best cost benefit rate since you are within walking distance to the Hermitage, and just behind Kazan Cathedral. A 3 minute walk from the subway - the famous Nevsky Prospect. Art, history and Russian culture with a few shots of vodka to spice! So, if you are rrreally smart, Cubahostel is the place for you! Night Life : The best lesson from Socialism is sharing! That's why our team is always keen to go out with our guests. Mainly to the places and parties that are NOT in the guidebooks, sharing experiences from a local point of view. ... more   less
