Liked: The common area is nice. The showers are good. It is well situated.

Disliked: The staff was not friendly at all, except for the person who greeted us on the night of the 26th who was really nice to us. The mattresses of one of the 2 bunk beds were in very bad condition, and all the duvets were dirty. The kitchen was not working properly.

Liked: The old stairs leading to the hostel are just what you expect to find in Russia. You can feel the history in the building, with the metal bars gates and old stone steps, just beautiful. The hostel is very nice and clean, and centrally located. Big rooms, no cramped at all.

Liked: A splendid hostel. Really a top place to get the most from St Petersburg.

Disliked: They could get a little more active in helping guests to socialise - organise some events guys and do it with a smile! You could have the #1 hostel in SPb before long.

Liked: Oksana at the front desk went above and beyond and was really nice to boot! The dormitory was quiet, the lounge was nice and everything was easy to find and use!

Disliked: No lock on the room (didn't use our key once), which wasn't a very big deal but may make some uncomfortable. No other complaints!

Liked: Some of the friendliest staff I have ever encountered while traveling. Helpful and friendly and honestly fun! The atmosphere is bright and comforting. The clientele is better than almost every hostel I have been to. The location couldn't be more perfect for a tourist here in St. Petersburg. I would stay here again, no questions asked. In fact, I can't wait to stay here again!

20 June 2013 Oliver would recommend this property

Liked: There's not a lot to argue about with this place: location is excellent, staff are very helpful and have free maps, rooms are spacious, plenty of toilets and showers, decent kitchen facilities. Definitely the best part is free tea on offer! They locked the rooms during the day too so it feels safe - there's lockers in the rooms anyway. You can also buy drink (Pretty much 1 pound per bottle of water) there

Disliked: The WiFi signal outside the common room is a bit dodgy, but still works!
