Excellent location on Nevsky Prospect in St. Petersburg. Hostel staff very friendly, spoke English and had a single room off Nevsky Prospect. Somewhat scary stairway up to the top and antiquated elevator. There was no breakfast served and there was a washing machine however no dryer. St. Petersburg is a beautiful city, very safe, friendly people and the hostel very... More

I loved the hostel! Very nice location, I could go by walking from the train station to the hostel. It is located in the biggest avenue of the city, so you have everything around you. Rooms were nice, but a little bit messy. But no problem! I liked it a lot!

Good location, clean rooms, bed sheets and towel but very, VERY poor, bad quality breakfast (it would be preferable if they didn't include it in their facilities).The staff was friendly and helpful but expect no warm water after 10pm if the hostel is overcrowded as it was during my stay.

I stayed in St.Petersburg for one night and this hostel was great. I was in an 8 person room. The beds were great they did not squeak like most bunkbeds do which was such a bonus. It is in a great location for restaurants, shopping and only a 15 minute walk to the winter palace. The bathroom was very clean... More

Right on Nevsky Prospekt, you're kidding, right? How centrally located can you get? The entrance is around the corner from Nevsky Prospekt, so don't panic when it is not immediately apparent. The time I booked corresponded to a large student booking which resulted in my 4- bed dorm room not being available, so alas, they gave me a single room.... More

St P is not cheap so finding affordable and central accommodation is quite hard. Hostel Life is good for this reason. It's not the best but for what you get (room, light breakfast, clean communal showers) and location, you can't really complain.
