Liked: Layout, organised, enough facilities for number of guests, private curtains for each bottom bunk if wanted for the light/general privacy and very clean. Heftily cleaning staff told me about the bad weather outside before I left in shorts!
Disliked: Flies, not a young backpacker crowd, no guest community and staff weren't keen to have you there through the day while they cleaned.

Liked: I liked that there are curtains around the lower bunks which are helpful when you are sleeping. It was also nice that you can rent lockers to put your valuables in which are free though you have to pay a deposit.
Disliked: This property is difficult to find as its location on the third floor of the building is not clearly indicated. It is also a noisy property. To access the hostel you need to ring the doorbell which is quite loud and it means that all night and morning you can hear the doorbell ringing. In addition the staff are not very helpful when we arrived there was confusion about which room we were staying in and we were made to wait around for an hour while they sorted it out.

Liked: Free drinking water and it's near an indoor market. Cheaper than other hostels at the time of my booking.
Disliked: I booked through hostelbookers but staffs didn't know. I had to show the confirmation email and it took a while because they didn't speak English.

Liked: The (Russian speaking) staff was nice. Free drinking water in water dispenser. Location is ok, but you have to walk 20 min to the nearest Metrostation. The Busstation is only 3 mins from the Hostel.
Disliked: I booked the room via Hostelbookers and chose a single room. When I arrived they told me that I did not book a single room, but a 10 bed dorm. I planned to stay for 28 nights and there was no alternative to the dorm. I had to pay in cash, which is really inconvenient considering the high charges at the ATMs in Russia. The staff does not speak English. There are almost no international travelers. The toilets are not cleaned on a regular basis. Do not expect the hostel staff to know anything about the local transportation, you will have to find that out on your own.
