Liked: Absolutely love Cubahostel, would recommend it to everyone. Staff are amazing, really friendly, fun and helpful and they all speak many languages. Great hostel atmosphere and facilities and good value for money. It's located right in the heart of St. Petersburg so you are literally on the doorstep of Nevsky and all the tourist attractions. Really enjoyed my stay here!

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: 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.
