  • Mostly russians staying here, some seemed to be mid term stayers. PC desktop page was in russian and the language setting task bar was missing. When requested staff to set language to English, was told no way.Toilets and showers are very clean but claustrophobically small. 6 person female dorm was narrow and long and not too clean as shoes are worn around and some food from room dwellers lying around. Hostel is on the 5th storey of a building where elevator is out of service.

  • Very friendly staff. It was clean and nice but only it has small bathrooms and toilets which does not matter for a few days. I really recommed this hostels. The location is not so far away from the center but it takes 30 minutes to walk so it is better to use metro.
    Owner Comment

    Thank you for your comment! It was a pleasure having you as our guests! As for location - our hostel is situated in the very historical center. Although, center of the city is quite big. Palace Square is indeed 30 minutes walk away (2,5 km.)

  • Its vy near Metro station of Mayakovskaya. But it need a 30mins walk to Hermitage Square. Overall, still a nice location to stay. Some rooms are facing towards Nevsky Pr, so quite noisy for sleeping. Rooms, Toilets, Shower rooms and common areas are extremely clean. There are 3 toilets and 3 shower rooms which is quite convenient. Katrina and one of the male staff (dont know his name) is extremely helpful, the rest of staffs are cool. Overall, its worth to stay. Credit card not accepted.
