The location is very good. The hostel is located in the main street, near the Hermitage. Full kitchen and a laundry machine was available.
Three floors without elevator. The beds were not comfortable. The mattress was too soft and the whole bed moved a lot every time to use it. There were not lockers to keep safe your luggage.
Great location, helpful and kind staff, very interesting people as guests.
The location is perfect, just a couple of steps away from the main sights of the city. The room(s) were comfortable, especially the second one I had. The hostel is clean, the staff is ok. The price is excellent. I like that there are 2 power sockets next to each bed, it makes things a lot easier. Towels are included, which is also great. All in all, it's a good place, located just in the center of St. Petersburg.
The entrance to the hostel looks a bit scary and there's no sign that there's a hostel, which might be a bit confusing. If you book via booking.com, you get a message with the description of how to get there, but I can imagine some people might still have some problems to find it. There's no lift so you'll need to carry your luggage to the 4th floor - be prepared for it. The wifi didn't work that well. There are only 2 showers so in the morning it might get a bit crowded. I was allocated to another room after the first night and wasn't really given any explanation why. But I don't complain about this one because the second room was much more comfortable than the first one ;)
Only there Housekeeping woman is good, she cleaning all very well...
There all staff not good, they are so rude, not helpful at all, they took for me extra, as a registration fees, they told is mandatory in Russia, police will stop me anywhere, but I never stop anywhere in Russia at all, no one ask me, they just take money from tourist, they really doing a kind of scam with foreign tourist, another hostel never ask me like that, there kitchen also too small, 2 washroom only , many people there , need to wait too long , for washroom and shower... better stay in another hostel, but not this all, never ever, they really so rude staff ...
