“bad smell going to rooms”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Good location but every time you walked up the stairs, there was a really bad sewer smell. The rooms were good and the bathrooms and showers were good for a hostel. The kitchen was remarkable clean as was the living room area. Loved the separate rooms for chilling and kitchen. The location was good, close to the metro. Food nearby as well as grocery stores for water.

Room Tip: Be sure to have a large group or book a whole room to yourself.

I spent a weekend in Underground Hall hostel in St. Petersburg and I have to admit it was a good stay and a great choice. It's in the city centre and not far from the metro. The place is comfy, cosy and clean. The atmosphare there is really nice and friendly. Staff is super helpfull, willing to help you with sightseeing, even prints out directions to a place on paper, without asking for it and without paying extra. It was nice to be welcomed with a smile and a couple of nice words. Need a good place to stay? Underground Hall hostel is the one!

Weekend stay during my trip to Saint-Petersburg. Cheap, but excellent quality for that price. Took room for 2 - it's great for 1, and the price is much lower than in hotels.

Location is in the centre of the city, all the attractions nereby. Recommended!

Room Tip: Take 2-person room - it's relatively cheap, even for solo, and conditions are great!

We stayed at the Underground Hall Hostel for four nights in January 2013. The place is situated on a main street (though you wouldn't know from the rooms) and the taxi had no issue finding the address - though we struggled to find the door with a very small sign (and kept walking past it for the duration of our stay). Note 'Hostel YES' is next door and a different place.

The Hostel consists of several floors which are kept spotlessly clean by an army of cleaning ladies, who apparently do not sleep and pounce on any sign of mud or dirt on the floor with mops and soap. There is a decent-size kitchen with free washing machine and separate living room with TV. Free fast wifi, and a vending machine for cheap coffee (20 руб.)/hot chocolate/soup. For some reason, there is also a chinup bar in the corridor.

Our floor had three small toilets, plus a bathroom with five shower cubicles and five basins, each with a hairdryer. All extremely clean. We booked a four bed dorm, and got a six bed doom all to ourselves for the duration of our stay. Dorms have lockers with builtin locks and keys, and you are given a key to your room to lock it (left with reception when you go out) when everyone has left.

Reception is very friendly, staffed 24 hours and they will do your visa registration for you for 200 руб. When we needed to print some train tickets they generously let us use their computer and print for 2 руб./page.

Only downside was that the stairwell (either trendy-industrial or rundown-with-paint, take your pick) smelt powerfully of damp. Not really an issue as the rooms were fine.

All in all, it was excellent. Would stay again.

Hello! Well, I have to live in St.Petersburg for three months and two of them I spent in this hostel. I highly recommended. The staff is lovely and always try to help you, great facilities, they have the all the place cleaned every single day, kitchen and bathrooms fully equipped,prices are good and it's not far from the metro station or from the center. I lived there for 2 months, so it has to be good.

Everything was perfect cause staff here really takes care of me. They constantly ask me how do I feel, if everything is ok. They even get to know me with other guests what was gorgeous. Even language barriers wasn't a problem cause the were very patience :). Staff is always smiling so it's perfect because it's rather not common to see Rusian smiling.
Here is always clean what is amazing! One woman who is a cleaner is really lovely. She keeps contact with everyone. On reception work also great people :) I'm impressed that there is an option to do laundy, iron. Kitchen is fully euiped. The only on think which can be better a bit is english language level but even despite it we could communicate each other ;) I love this people! :)
I'm seriously delighted of my stay :)

Room Tip: there is a problem with a doors in room number 4 cause when you open it, the noise is awful :P the...
