Not my first time there. One of the best places to stay Petersburg
Window looked on the busy street, but other than that everything was great
I loved the place! The room was comfortable and clean, the staff was really hospitable and very helpful. Also I liked the location of the hostel - in the city centre, close to the metro station.
We use this hostel on our last business trip to St Petersburg on business so this is the second time we've used it. It is a comfortable, clean, good value and friendly hostel. We will be using it for the foreseeable future. Thank you!
Sometimes hear noises from the hotels above/below but nothing that has disturbed us too much.
Cleanliness and measures of the rooms are OK. Other facilities are a bit strange.
This hostel was our worst experience. Upon arrival the recepcionist, started to waste our time checking our passports and russian migration cards, asking questions and trying to search problmes with it. After started the problem with the payment process, as she said, we need to pay the whole amount upon arrival, althought it was all payed before by card. Then she asked help from her colleague, and somehow found out that 1 places out of 3 was already payed, we need to pay the two another, in addition need to sign a one page contract about payments, collecting of personal data etc. - absolutely stange methods. BE AWARE there are hidden cost when you book, an additional 100 rubel for the bed linen ! Also the facilities are coming with a price, deposits - see my uploaded photo about the actuals. Overall we wasted almost 2 hours stainding at the reception, calling the booking.com calling center etc. IT WAS THE MOST TERRIBLE GUEST HANDLING DURING MY TRIPS. DEFINITELY CAN NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOSTEL TO ANYONE. FOR THIS PRICE, THERE ARE MORE HOSTELS WITH BETTER LOCATIONS IN ST. PETERBURG. If i knew it, would choose another.
The customer service was excellent - thank you so much to everyone who served us. They said hello and goodbye every time we came and went, got us extra bedding when we needed it without question and called us a taxi that came within minutes (600rub to the airport). There were information leaflets and maps which was so useful as we had left the street map we normally bring for St P at home! The room was tidy and clean, the beds were comfy and the bathroom had everything we needed in. The hostel had a lovely relaxed and quiet feel. We will definitely be back!
There were some people talking at around 5am one night which was disturbing but the first night was totally quiet so it wasn't a big issue.
