Liked: Staff was very helpful in giving suggestions and helping me get to the locations I wanted. The location was fantastic and within walking distance of most of the main attractions in St. Petersburg and also only a few blocks away from a great nightlife area. For further destinations, Acme was only a short walk from the Metro station. The place was well kept and pretty clean for hostel standards and rooms were spacious (plenty of floor space). Lockers were provided in all the rooms so you could keep valuables there while you were out sight-seeing for the day.

Disliked: Perhaps it was just bad luck or bad timing, but the showers had no hot water for about 24 hours during my time there. Other than that, I was pleased with my stay.

Liked: Very nice kitchen, and staff spoke amazing English which is difficult to find in Russia. The hostel was very quiet at night making a great sleep and very centrally located to monuments

Disliked: Terrible directions to get to the hostel. When your walking down Nevski Prospect the street you need to turn at is the street with an underground walkway! Also some of the top matresses for the bunk beds are coil and very very painful to sleep on

Liked: The hostel is located in the very centre of St. Petersburg, you can easily walk to all major sights. Quite a few student pubs and cheap restaurants are within walking distance as well. We had booked beds in a dormitory for 8, but then got an upgrade for a 4 bed room which was great. The rooms and common facilities were clean and nicely furnished, with many nice details. Showers and toilets were clean, the kitchen is a nice place to sit and drink tea or coffee (which is for free) and meet other travellers. It's a really nice and cosy place to stay and I would recommend this hostel to any young traveller.

Disliked: Payment with credit card was not possible although indicated on the website. Beds were not very comfortable, provided towels are very small (you better bring your own towels).

Liked: It was next to the main street, so quite in the center of the city - Palace Square was 10 minutes walk. The receptionists spoke English, which is not so common in Russia, and they were kind and helpful. We had a calm short vacation there, because it was really quiet. And it's good that we could make our own food in the kitchen, all facility was given for that.

Disliked: We did not have any problem.

Liked: Acme Hostel is strategically located near to a metro station and along the main thoroughfare of St Petersburg. Easy to get around St Petersburg, using the metro, from Acme Hostel. The room was relatively spacious enough to accomodate a 10-bed dorm. The toilets were generally clean and tidy.

Disliked: There was only one fan for the entire 10-bed dorm. Though this was much better considering many hostels in Russia did not seem to have fans, it will be appreciated if more fans were provided to cater to the summer heat.

Liked: all staff are helpful. the best hostel i've ever stayed in Russia. hot water supply are constant and kitchen is well equip and clean. They even allow us to keep our big baggage in a locked store room since we're going for our cruise trip for about a week ( and later back to St Petersburg before leaving for Moscow). The only setback is that the premise is located on a 4th floor building without an elevator (enough to cause dyspnea here ;p). Would like to suggest for those require transfers/taxi to go through Acme's receptionist because they offer good rates on taxis (and most important, they will help you with those big big luggage down the staircase :P

Disliked: almost nothing
