It was a nice place to stay, but it was very very noisy. We go a room that was near the common space and people were partying. When we were partying too, the problem disappeared
Nevertheless, the showers and the rooms were clean,the location was great, we didn't take the metro at all. The kitchen was small but we cooked a lot as well as others travellers and we didn't experienced any troubles with it.
I definitely recommand!

Perfect location - close to Metro, train stations, and all the stunning architecture and waterways you could hope to see in Saint Petersburg, as well as cafes, bars, restaurants and clubs. The staff are awesome and very friendly. The facilities are great. It's good to know that next time I'm in Saint Petersburg I already know exactly where to stay.

A group of friends and I were on the no-visa 72 hour trip to St. Petersburg and Cubahostel was the best hostel for that! A great environment, PERFECT location, and very nice and informative staff! I never felt unsafe and the staff answered countless of our questions- so great! This place was perfect for us and anyone who wants to visit St. Petersburg.

Very close to Kazan Cathedral and a short walk to Nevsky Prospect. It is pretty difficult to find as the sign is very small.

The rooms were very basic and again like most hostels shared bathrooms and showers.

No elevator, so you need to be able to haul your luggage up 3 flights of stairs.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and indeed got us a very reasonable taxi back to the airport, which was a lot cheaper than the one we got on the way into St Petersburg.

Although it may not be easy to find, once there it is excellent value for money. Very friendly staff and good facilities. However be sure to keep an eye on your vodka because bottles do tend to disappear.

First, this hostel is perfectly located in the very heart of the city, next to Kazanskaya cathedral, and the staff works 24 hours, so it's very pleasant to return to your place of stay after hours of wandering around the city knowing that it'll take little time and there's always someone waiting for your. Second, about this someone. The staff is very great, always ready to help and explain everything you want to know about Petersburg. It's very,very clean here, rooms for all tastes, beds are exceptional - very comfortable and wide, great kitchen full of all the utensils you need, and many other good things. As for being hard to find - it's not exactly true - you should only find the house which is just behind the Cathedral and a red door with Cubahostel stick and you're home.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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
