Liked: Location is a must. The hotel is at the perfect place, as well for planning activities during the day (as at walking distance of the main spots to visit), as well for having fun at night (as also at a short walk to the main street in town with bars and clubs).. I also appreciaated the kind of business... as is far away from a "classsical hotel" and we could ssay is closer to rent an appartment. In fact you are renting one room in one appartmen (four rooms in total). They give you the keys and some advises at the welcome... and "let you live" until the gooddbye. Another interesting service they offfer is the pick-up from airport and to airport. Even if you should leave in the middle of the night.

Disliked: Hot water in shower is not easy to manage, I would suggest them to improve it.

Liked: I love everything about this property. My main concern during my travel was choosing the best accomodation for my 50 year old mother. So that means no climbing up stairs. This hostel is perfect because it is located on the first floor. And it is very near to the main road. It is very clean. The staff is excellent. It only has 4 rooms, so if you are looking for something with privacy, this is it. One last thing, I don't think the picture provided does justice to the property, because the property is far more beautiful than the picture provided.

Disliked: The only thing I dislike is the hot and cold water in the bathroom. It took ages for the hot water to come out. And it's hard to get the right combination of hot-cold water, as it took quite some times for it to respond.

Liked: A great hostel in the heart of St Petersburg! A perfect location, no more than 10 minutes walk from any of the key tourist sites, yet set off the main drag and in a chilled and quiet courtyard! Plenty of local cafes, bars and minimarts! The owner is very cool and will happily chat all day or head out for a few beers. The maid is positively beaming to show and tell you about the local sites! Clean, and with plenty of facilities including free T, coffee and breads!

Disliked: Everything was great, just be careful not to miss it as it is through an arch and in a courtyard (brown steel door). Grab the owners telephone number to just Incase he has popped out.

Liked: This is a great location! Everything was so close and we didn't need to use public transport as all the sights are easy walking distance. The host was very helpful indeed and made the stay very pleasant. There was lots of helpful tourist information readily available at the hotel to assist with maximising the city sights etc. It was safe and secure and clean. Definately recommend staying here.

Louisa Ziane

17 June 2008

Liked: Good location within easy walking distance of all of the big sights. More like a hotel than a hostel so great if you just want privacy and will not be spending much time there. There were no staff around, maybe for an hour in the morning to clean, so noone to ask questions of (plus better if you speak German or Russian) but St Petersburg is very easy to figure out for yourself and the local tourist information offices are good.

Disliked: Louisa left no negative feedback.
