I stayed with my friend here for three nights. The building was hard to find but the staff was so kind also the room, and wifi were nice. Additionally, the location is near by station so it was easily to go and come back from central.

Nice, quaint, affordable little place. Lovely room, lovely staff and the best part of this place is that it's located in a very convenient place for travelers. Train, bus, metro...everything is close by. The building is old and very Russian but lends a great charm to the place. If you're not looking for in-hotel entertainment and just want a place...

The building is old and very Russian, but inside it's very clean and well organized. They have maps and help you to find a good trip in Piter. The attendants are very nice and always glad to help you. It's not so far from the center and there are a good sort of restaurants and cafes surrounding it. I strongly...

I chose this hostel because of the location. It is near from Nevsky Prospekt, but not as near as it should be to be safe. During the day, ok, it's perfect. There is a metro station not so far and a minimarket just few meters away. Late at night, however, I didn't feel safe, and I was right about it....

However on arrival the unhelpful receptionist announced to us that we were unable to check in until 2pm (we had booked and secified our arrival time). The room...

The day I arrived was hot and muggy by St. Petersburg standards, as the hostel is not air conditions, many parts were hot and uncomfortable. Not much air flow in the bed rooms didn't help. , Some street noise with the windows open, a bar across the street, garbage collection, etc. Decent kitchen facilities, 2 burner stove, filtered water, refrigerator...

The hostel is very clean and the installations are new. The building and the corridors are quite old and scary, but inside the hostel everything is perfect! There's a nice kitchen with everything a traveler needs, the bathrooms are very good, with nice shower and the bedroom is comfortable, even when sharing with other 7 people! The location is great,...
