Liked: Although the entryway was a bit daunting, the hostel itself was very clean and comfortable. The staff and most of the other guests were lovely, and the common areas were very well maintained. For the price, the location and accomodations were unbeatable - would definitely stay here again.

Disliked: The entrance is a perfect allegory for communism - the aristocratic embellishes of a grand stairway fallen to ruin and surrendered to the people. The front buzzer responded with an error message whenever i tried the code, and ultimately resorted to pressing different doorbells until one of them worked. I was staying in a dorm, so expected some level of compromise (every other time I've done this I've found that people are respectful when it comes to noise/lights when people are sleeping.) Most of the other guests were great, but there was one couple that seemed perhaps to live there, to have spread out beyond their allotted space and to argue loudly/watch movies/listen to music throughout the night, whenever it suited them. This is not a criticism of the hostel, but nonetheless affected my stay there.

Liked: Great location. Really close to main street. I like those guys on reception. They know everything about St.Petersburg! There was a movie-party in the last day. So I spend a good time!

Disliked: its hard to find the door to hostel becouse it is in a very big bilding with lots of gates
