This was a great hostel with excellent value for the money. A few negatives are there is no good signage ( only a some postcard sized paper to identify the door) and it is on a fifth floor walk up which can be challenging with a lot of bags but the beds are soft, the rooms are warm, it was quiet and comfortable. There was some confusion at check in about payment but they made everything right and graciously allowed us to add a night on to our booking. From this location we could easily walk to the Palace Square, Hermitage, St. Isaacs Cathedral, Church on the Spilled Blood, Faberge Museum and much more! We had a blast in St. Petersburg and this hostel was part of the fun!
centrally located in st petersburg as the name suggests. it may be a little hard to find the entrance and you have to climb up to the fifth floor where the hostel is located. but once up there, the rooms are really nice and quiet with a nice common area.
Best location and very center of Saint Petersburg”
Very close to the Spilled blood church and Saint Kazan Cathedral. Everythings was the good but the hostel is on the roof floor of building (5th floors) without elevator. It may be hard for people who have many big luggages.
Very good location ”
Very good location but it's a little bit difficult to find at first because there isn't any big logos for indication. Just a few steps and you can get to the Main Street of St. Petersburg!
Best location to Kazan Cathedral ”
Just one minute walk from Kazan cathedral. 15 minutes walk to winter palace. Best location in the city! All staff are friendly, able to give any information you need. The public area has everything including coffee, tea, water dispenser and sofa. Toilet and shower room are pretty small but clean. Personal reading light and power supply are available. I will still choose this hostel next time absolutely.
Place to stay in St. petersburg !”
Hi, guys, I love staffs here, they all r helpful and kind. They all can speak English don't worry :) Location is very good, it's just the opposite of Kazan Cathedral so you can walk all around the city ( of u want) but the hostel is at the fifth floor without elevator. Everything is clean. What's I love the most is u can leave bags after check out and I even use bathroom and kitchen after check out also. It's very meaningful for those who have night flight.
Location, clean, comfy bed and room AWESOME”
This Hostel is very good in everything, Location is just 3mins walk to Savior blood, 1mins to Kazan, I was in female dorm room, the roommate were all Russian girl, the room condition is perfect, comfy bed, reading light, plug socket are closed to the bed, bed-sheet, blanket and pillow are good smell, shower room was a little bit small with hot water, they don't have shower gel, shampoo, just bring your own, kitchen room and living room are big, bean bag zone is very relax, they also provide free washing machine and detergent, all staffs, 2ladies and 1guy have very good english like no other russian hostel else i ever met and they are very friendly and very helpful, they are nice. anyway please keep in mind that this hostel is located on very high floor, if you are ok to walk, to me it is just exercise.
It's kind of challenging to find it - it's in Malaya Konyushennaya Ulitsa (coming from Nevsky Prospekt, the wide pedestrian path with Starbucks in the corner, just in front of the Kazan Cathedral.) Find the building number, dial 9 on the door phone and tell your name. It's a bit of a climb up (no elevator) but when you get to the place upstairs, it was so cozy. The beds are VERY comfortable and the showers are clean. It definitely gives value for money and the location is very very excellent. A few minutes walk to the Kazan Cathedral, Nevsky Prospekt, Cathedral of Christ the Savior on Spilled Blood, and Palace Square -- couldn't ask for more. It's a 15-minute walk from Moskovskiy Vokzal (Train Station to Moscow) and very near Nevsky Prospekt subway. Dom Knigi is just in the vicinity. When I get back to Piter, THIS is the place I will be staying in. Cooking and eating facilities are there along with laundry and drying rack. Men and women comfort rooms/showers are separate.
Great Central Location”
It is located really centrally making it easy to walk to most of the attraction. Was very cosy and great value. Would definitely recommend.
Very best location of St. Petersburg”
I think around here might be have a lot of hostel but I was selected this hostel because location is best for sightseeing around church, museum, fast food, market and metro. The hostel in top floor with out lift but bedroom is big, comfortable for sleep big living room with kitchen
Really located at center of city”
Very convenient, half to one hour walking distance from all major tourist attractions. Close to metro station and supermarkets. Next to main road, activities all day round. The only weakness is having to walk upstairs, but if one has a lot of luggages and knee problem. That's life!
modern attic rooms at the hostel on 5th floor”
Pleasant stay. Its location is the best. However you need to be prepared to walk up to 5th floor where the attic rooms are located. The staffs are very helpful. They even have something to chew in the morning for free.
Haed to find the hotel. You have to find the big two signs above the door and you will find a small hotel sticker on the door than press no.9
Good to stay! Worth to stay!”
The hostel location is really good! And there are comfortable common area and beds, and the staff are all very nice and helpful.
Nice place to stay”
Lovely hostel, no hesitate to book for next time. Thr only thing if they can improve is bathroom as it's a bit too small.
Great location with value for money”
Location is very convenient, staff is friendly, but the sunroof mirror doesn't have a curtain, abit inconvenient during summer.
Great location, value money”
This is the great location place, near Kazan, walk to spillbloud But, this hostel stay at 5th floor without elevator.
Easy to travel ”
Easy to travel but hard to find main door to hostel
The location of the Hostel was great, there was only one person speaking english.”
The Hostel Management were to careless about our registeration, they delalyed our registeration until the last day of our stay. İt is important if u are a foreigner visiting Russia to have registeration. The registeration fee is inside the money you pay to Hostel. They charged us extra. The behavior of the owners towards guest is not good. I would not recommend foreigners to stay in This Hostel, russians can stay.
Be aware that hostel is on the 5F. No elevator, just stairs. So be prepared. Location is very central though.
