Nordhostel Hermitage
Reviewed 29 July 2009

There is little good to say about our stay at Nord Hostel in St Pete. Unfortunately, there were no recent posts on Trip Advisor at the time that I booked or I would have gone elsewhere. The location of the main hostel building is about half a block from the Hermitage, just off Nevesky Prospekt. Booking a room via the internet is easy - they are quite willing to take your money.

We arranged with Nord Hostel to be picked up from the airport. Our driver was prompt and spoke English very well. He took us to a location about 1 km from the Hermitage and informed us that this is where we were to stay. After following him up a damp, dark, smelly, scary stairwell, we were shown two double rooms - not the family room we had requested (AND ALREADY PAID FOR). We said that this was not what we had been lead to believe that we'd arranged, and after a few phone calls, he resigned to take us to the main location, near the Hermitage.

There we were given a flithy room with rickety bunk beds. It looked like someone else was living in the room and had vacated minutes before we arrived. (We were given clean bed linens - small blessing). The shared bathroom was so awful, we didn't dare take a shower - doors didn't lock and the door to one of the two toilets didn't even close all the way. We stayed two nights, as we had prepaid and couldn't get a refund.

If you are considering booking NH you should ensure that you are being booked into the "hermitage" location.
