This is certainly the best hostel I've ever stayed at - and (not bragging about it) I've already been to 30 countries.
Imagine an EXTREMELY cozy place, with the friendliest staff you can get and an atmosphere that makes you feel sooo much like home. I loved it, my girlfriend loved it and I had the feeling that so did every single guest I met there. Some HOTEL owners should visit Soul Kitchen Junior to take it as an example for their properties.
Oh, and DO NOT let the building entrance scare you! It is a building from the 19th century and it seems like the staircase is maintenance is not a priority for whoever is responsible for it, but you can't imagine how positively surprised you will be obce you're actually in the hostel facilities.
Value for money: the best you can get.
Cleanness: probably cleaner than my apartment ;-), both in the rooms and common areas.
Safety: nothing to complain about.
- they offer free calls to more than 50 countries
- the kitchen is very well organized
- the living room features a nintendo wii, a huge TV and an even bigger sofa
- every single detail from decoration makes you wonder how can somebody pay so much attention to details.
Well, all I can say is that I normally don't write such long reviews, but I was so impressed by this place that I just had to share my opinion with a higher level of detail.
If you're going to St. Petersburg, rest assured that you can't go wrong if you pick Soul Kitchen Junior for your accomodation. And you will wish you could stay longer...
Thanks for a great stay guys! Mainly Maria, Lena and Sascha!
