I absolutely loved staying at this hostel! All the facilities are super clean, comfortable, well decorated (just as seen at the photographs!). Some of the bunk beds are even "double sized"! The atmosphere is really friendly. The staff is so nice, gentle and helpful... my next time in SPB will be here again, definitely!

They have created an atmosphere that facilitates interacting with other guests. As a solo traveler, I appreciate meeting people who I can spend a day or two sightseeing with. They created their own St. Petersburg map with all... More
