Liked: Very good value for money. Friendly and helpful staff. Many thanks to the male staff who helped me to open my canned food with a knife! Warm and cosy sitting room with internet, TV and 24-hour cold/hot/boiling drinking water. Clean and sufficient numbers of shower, toilets and wash basins. Free use of washing machines. Nearby supermarket.

Disliked: Some lockers for empty dorm beds cannot be opened, and the hostel staff said that guests who already checked out had not returned the keys! A coin-operated dryer will add much more convenience to travellers.

Liked: The rooms were nice enough and spacious. The cleaners seemed to be constantly cleaning so the place stayed pretty tidy.Location was good.

Disliked: Not many toilets and showers. Wasn't as friendly and sociable as it sounded although that may have been due to the fact it was only Russians staying there. We didn't encounter any English speakers during our 3 night stay. Not a big deal but a shame for our stay.

Liked: they were overbooked so i stayed in the other branch at Griboedova. so my review is on the Griboedova branch. the friend - Griboedova hostel location is amazing. u can get by foot anywhere. the facilities are good as well.

Disliked: the stuff are horrible!!! not nice to say the least. they are still stuck in the communistic days of being indifferent and give the worst service . some dont speak english and some gave me wrong information or just ignored me when i checked in. as i said - horrible. still - the facilites and location are good so if you are independant u should get by without them

Liked: very nice and helpful staff!!

Disliked: kitchen is not exactly as the kitchen it was in my mind, only fridge and microwave oven, moreover I had the bad luck of choosing showers where only you get very cold or very hot water...

Liked: it was reasonably priced and offered free internet access as well as suitcase free storage.

Disliked: it felt like a cheap hosteling for Russian-speaking (mostly) people which totally kills the possibility to experience the international hostel spirit.The showers are not that perfect especially if you don't have slippers or flip-flops with you.
