“Very convenient location and good rates for what is a costly city to stay in.”
Reviewed December 6, 2011

This was my first time staying in a hostel so I don't have much to compare with. That said, the rates were really cheap: around $US20 per night (cash only though), compared to $US80 for something really basic in what is a pricey city to stay in. It is in a really good location too, right on the main strip Nevsky Prospekt and only a short walk from the main train station.

I was lucky enough to meet up with two Finns, one of whom spoke Russian which was very useful since the hostess didn't speak any English.

Wasn't a problem for us though, because there were only a few others in the hostel that night. Rooms were definitely no frills but not uncomfortable. I was also allowed to sleep in as late as I wanted which to me is a HUGE plus.

Breakfast is just serve-yourself-cereal etc but quite a cosy kitchenette. Hostess made sure I had what I needed too.

I actually felt quite comfortable here, more so than I have in some hotels in all truth. I don't know what it would be like full though. This was midsummer too so I am thinking I lucked it. Given the same circumstances I would definitely return though.

Room Tip: Make sure you map out where this place is beforehand, as it can be quite hard to locate. Hostel is u...
