Liked: Nothing

Disliked: I don't think the property was that clean. The kitchen hasn't got enough facilities. No gas-oven. The place looked like not operating as an hostel. Apart from us, only local (guess) students, people were living there. No atmosphere, people don't talk, every day different people were at the recepcion. No one welcome you, if you don't ask them they don't say even a word. No sign that the place working as an hostel

Liked: Esta muy bien ubicado, sobre la calle principal de San Petersburgo. El desayuno es gratis y el personal te ayuda sin problemas. Hay te gratis siempre, y la cocina sirve si uno quiere comer ahi.

Disliked: Me fue dificil encontrar el lugar porque no hay ningun cartel que lo indique, solo en la puerta (digamos que no hay un cartel que sobresale). Para llegar al hostel hay que subir 5 pisos en escalera, eso no es culpa del hostel pero hay que contarlo igual! En verano casi siempre hay luz solar y el hecho de que en la pieza no haya buenas cortinas se hace dificil dormir.

Liked: good location and the price is OK~

Disliked: There are three bathrooms on the upstairs, but no water output if many people use the bathrooms at the same time. Also the wifi signal is really bad in the upstairs area. If you want to cook by yourself, only microwave can be used. The breakfast just one yogurt, one cornflakes and two toast.

Liked: This nice Hostel is located directly on the main street of St.Petersburg. So all the main attractions are situated really close to this Hostel. The atmosphere was just wonderful!

Liked: Fun atmosphere. Free breakfast and WiFi.

Disliked: WiFi had short range. Kitchen only has kettle, toaster and microwave, no stove. Hostel is on5th floor of building and the dorm was up another set of stairs, that was more like a ladder. Kitchen dishes not clean properly. My booking was not in their system.

Liked: Wow! The people are too lovely for words. I feel like I have been welcomed into a friends home. The staff helped me with everything I needed. It was much better than staying in a boring hotel. I would recommend it to anyone coming to St. P

Disliked: Maybe if you are to stay in the dorms and you wanted quiet this place may be too much fun for you, although the people are very respectfull and kind. I stayed upstairs where it was silent at night.

Liked: Fantastic location and great value for money. Dorms were quite big and the whole hostel was very clean. Staff very friendly and helpful

Disliked: climbing 5 flights of stairs to get there! Also although there were small lockers in the dorm for storing valuables, the doors to the dorms were always open and couldn't be locked. My room was off the common area so I felt I had to keep all my stuff locked in my bag the whole time. Also meant that I had to walk pass the common room / reception area to go to the bathroom at night. These were small things tho - overall it was a great place
