눉-The hostel is new and the owners are constantly improving the quality of the place, which is great! -Everyone mentioned bathroom and shower traffic in the morning, but if you plan it out (take a shower in the evening, or after everyone left for work, which is around 10 in the morning), then it is not a problem.
눇I went to Saint-Petersburg for a two-month post-doctoral research program at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, therefore, the location of this hostel was perfect for me (2-3 min. walk to the conservatory and Marrinskiy Theater, 10 min. walk to Sennaya ploshad, 30 min. walk to Nevskiy prospekt, 35 min. walk to Hermitage and Winter Palace). I stayed in the women's dormitory for 8 people. Usually, when staying in a hostel, security and safety of your belongings is a concern. However, I found, it was a completely different story here. The hostel is a 4 bedroom appartment turned into a hostel, dormitory-style, and the size of it is very small. The hostel has a complete different set up from hostels in Europe: the people that were staying there were mostly young people coming from different parts of Russia to find work, and therefore, staying there long term. Because, those people pretty much live there, they develop a sense of comradery and respect for each other, so you feel safe leaving your things out - you just feel safe, in general. I made several very close friends, while staying there. The owners are young bright, kind and amazing girls that go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at home. They know the city and its history and can advise on where to go and what to see. One of them is an avid theater buff and can find you free shows and free theaters to go see :), which I really appreciated (I would say, the quality of the performance in those shows is equal, if sometimes, not better of performances in famous theaters of St. Petersburg.) The hostel provides clean linens every 10 days, kitchen fully equipped to cook for yourself, iron, laundry machine, free wi-fi, hair-dryer, free tea and coffee. And also, meeting interesting people and motivating conversations in the kitchen are what made my stay so awesome! 24-hour convenient stores in the same building. BTW, they also pick you up and take you to the airport!
