About a 8-10 minute walk from Nevsky Prospect, Kazan Cathedral and a bar/club street. It is not too far from the Church of the saviour of the spilt blood. Right in front of the hostel there is a popular bar/ nightclub (but it is not noisy) and around the corner is a 24 hour supermarket, as well as the main... More

A good hostel, near from the center. Quite small enough to have a convivial atmsophere, but different levels to welcome many clients. The FRIENDS atmosphere from the TV show is present almost everywhere, we just wanted the same decoration in our appartment. The only "bad point" would be the absence of real kitchen. There is a microwave, fridge, hot water,... More

We booked this hostel because of the many good reviews and its convenient central location. However, the experience was so bad that we moved out during our stay.. It was impossible to get some decent sleep in Friends hostel, in spite of using good earplugs. Our room was reasonably close to the common room, where other guests threw loud parties... More

Friendly staff, great facilities, great location but too many booking mistakes. One of our friends went to go to bed and found they'd put someone else in his bed. Same happened to another friend and he had to shift to the couch. We arrived early in morn (7:30) after overnight train from Moscow and when we asked when we could... More

This was the better of the two hostels I stayed at in Russia. The hostel is in a great location. The staff was very friendly, helpful and spoke great English; they let me some my bags before I could check-in and after I checked out. Free tea and cookies were cute; one day there was free Russian pancakes. There is... More

We actually stayed in "Flat" Friends, which is an affiliate in Griboedova Canal. It's an apartment with private bathroom in a very central area. Nevsky Prospect is in a 3 min walk. It's in an extremely quiet place (but it will also depend on your neighbour, as there are 2 apartments) with TV in a comfortable room. There is a... More
