Our Hostel is elegant, comfortable and cozy place in the heart of St.Petersburg which makes you feel like at home. The Hostel characterizes the concept of home for backpackers, where best service, cleanliness and facilities are top priorities along with friendliness and warm atmosphere.

We have free breakfast, free Wi-Fi, free common kitchen with tea/coffee-making facilities all day long, free laundry service... and from time to time we serve free Russian blinis for breakfast!
The Hostel is owned and run by a local Russian family who will be more than happy to provide you with plenty of information about the city and how to get around. We prepare budget delicious homemade Russian dinners where you can easily meet many people and socialize even if traveling alone.
We created a funky CHILLOUT-zone in the mixed dormitory where our guests can rest on 2.5 meters high while another guests are relaxing in the HAMMOK beneath.
We can offer lots of little extras to our guests, from Russian soup ‘borsch’ to live performance of Russian folk songs on the guitar and smoking HOOKAH, not to mention famous Russian Welcome drink-vodka!
We have many tours to offer, from the boat tour in the center of the city to a fishing trip or kayaking in the surroundings of St.Petersburg.

Our hostel is located in the building of 19th century in historical centre between Nevsky Avenue (the main street) and Liteyni Bridge (open bridge is a symbol of the city). We're just a few minutes walk from Neva river, the metro station, the buzzing downtown and amazing nightlife. It's about 15 minutes' easy walk to Nevsky Avenue.
