This place is in a great location, is pretty damn cheap for where its situated too. You have showers/cookng facilities, as with any other place. The place could do with a spruce up, wifi, unless you are in the common sitting area, can be a bit on/off. Staff are helpful too, only thing I would say, is if you speak...

The hostel is amazing and is very close to town. I asked the staff for advice on food and nightlife. All great things. The rooms were clean and they had nice shower rooms. I stayed in a 10 bed room with my friend.

We stayed here for two nights, we had our private room, the personal was very nice and helpful. You can get everything you need, like towel, sheets, hairdryer, there is also a kitchen. The hostel is situated in the center of the city so you actually don't need to use any public transport if you don't want to.

This was a good place to stay, and the people that I met were cool. It had a nice atmosphere. One thing, though: the guy I met at the check in desk raised a concern over one particular document I had and whether or not it was sufficient. Now I'm aware that he was just doing his job; however, for...

The stay in Cuba Hostel is always excellent, I've been here for two times already (solo, with a group and now with my partner) and it always pleases me so much. The hostel is located perfectly, really IN the centre, next to Nevsky Prospekt and Kazansky Sobor but still in a peaceful (and really hip) street! The staff is fantastic,...

Perfect location and with a staff that makes you feel like home. Enjoyed each of the 6 days that I stood there. All the staff was not only absolutely nice and eager to help, but had an immense knowledge of the city and what things to do. Great vibe and great treat. I could not have asked a better place...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A lifetime experience. There's a revolutionary inside of all of us! Recommended by LONELY PLANET. Author's choice Let's see if you're rrreally smart! Quizz: What does Rachmaninov have to do with Che Guevara? Answer: CUBAHOSTEL Cubahostel is located in the very same building where the famous composer Rachmaninov has lived and worked. Years later, it was made a Socialist Communalka. Nowadays, it is the right choice for those looking for budget prices in the very heart of St Petersburg. Best cost benefit rate since you are within walking distance to the Hermitage, and just behind Kazan Cathedral. A 3 minute walk from the subway - the famous Nevsky Prospect. Art, history and Russian culture with a few shots of vodka to spice! So, if you are rrreally smart, Cubahostel is the place for you! Night Life : The best lesson from Socialism is sharing! That's why our team is always keen to go out with our guests. Mainly to the places and parties that are NOT in the guidebooks, sharing experiences from a local point of view. ... more   less
