Returned again to this hostel , it gets better each year. The rooms are all being improved & decorated & as ever were clean. The kitchen room has basic facilities but more than enough for a city with so much to offer in the way of eating out. A new supermarket opened within a few hundred metres makes shopping easy for non Russian speakers .
The staff here as ever are one of the place's greatest assets friendly , able to answer enquiries in English if needed or find information if you need it.The ability to register your visa quickly means it's a great place as a stopover on a longer trip.
It's location is great as it is close to two metro stations , not far to Nevsky Prospect & many of St P's attractions but far enough away to be quiet & off the beaten track.
The hostel has a great feeling of safety with a concierge arrangement on the ground floor lift up to the floors that the hostel occupies.
Look forward to going back next year.
